Random news:  The Colaitis shrimp-tossing lawsuit against Benihana was decided yesterday.

Here's some randomness:  Ever notice how YKK is imprinted on a lot of zippers, buttons, rivets, etc.?  Here's the company that makes these fascinating fastening products.

BTW corbabe between those two I'd say ipod.  Who doesn't love ipods?

Hey!  I found your baff:

Aww.  I feel a bit sorry for the poor guy. :(

See, kids, it wasn't so hard, now was it? ;)

There are some newer ones that aren't on there, notablly (pp), GTQ, GAK....

You're getting there!  Any btw, legapp, the xoxo wiki is actually a fun resource....pretty hilarious.

I don't think we'll see GAK defined on the xo acronym board anytime soon.  From what I've seen AK is anathema there, let alone GAK.  They're too prestigious for that.


Nope, Classics major.  The word is from the Greek verb "temo," which means to cut.  I don't know what it means to an English major, but tmesis is when a compund word is cut up and separated in a sentence.  It is pretty common in the Iliad.  Is that what it means to you?

Homeric Greek was one of my favorite classes.  I wish I had known what single-footed meant at the time.  I always assumed it meant single-hooved, as opposed to cleft-hooved.

Speaking of horses, do people know farrier?  Being a city person, I just recently learned this.

Last one: phlogiston
Totally obscure word with an interesting history.

BTW, I love Margee's words, esp. basial

Great idea for a thread.

As far as the PS goes, I think we're all our own worst critics.  At least you've done really well with your apps despite your reservations about it.   :)

Sorry to hear about everyone.  :(

soonertbone, if you don't mind my asking, on your LSN you said that you weren't very happy with your PS.  I was wondering what aspect of it you weren't satisfied with?
