Another reverse dictionary

The Internet oldtimers among you might remember Casey's Snow Day Reverse Dictionary, an online service that was able to suggest a word if you typed its definition (Wayback machine link). Unfortunately, that web page has long since disappeared, and was last seen some time in 2003. It was a great help for word troubles, and I have missed it. Roget's thesaurus helps, but only to a certain extent.

Recently, I discovered OneLook's reverse dictionary, which seems to be a very good replacement. Or what do you think of these examples?

Of course, if you feed it strange queries, the results might be a bit odd (but in this particular case we Babylon 5 fans tend to agree).
