noun. A non-kaboomy condition that will likely never be universal, because of those two-legged varmints called "people" you may have noticed around these parts.

Real citation: "Kaboomlessness
Thank goodness the baserunner in this photograph is not A-Rod. Otherwise, we'd probably never hear the end of it:"
(June 2, 2007, Catfish Stew,

Made-up citation: "When the Martians represent humanity in their finest museum, they will erect a statue of an earthwad praying for kaboomlessness while setting off a suitcase nuke. Martian warlord children on field trips will love it."

I am honored to have added to your dictionary from the linked blog entry.

The "kaboomlessness" in my blog entry had double meanings. It referred to the kaboomlessness of the baseball bats in the game that I was writing about: a 1-0 game where the only run scored on a weak double play. But also, that because the game was over so fast, we had to wait for an entire kaboomless hour for the sky to get dark enough to display the scheduled post-game fireworks show.
