Funny facts


In spite of its awful meaning, the word "bigot" sort of cracks me up because in Spanish "bigote" means "moustache".

(Also, the English word for "avocado" comes from the Spanish earlier form of "abogado", which means "lawyer". In Spanish, the name of the fruit is "aguacate", which comes from the Náhuatl word for "testicle".)


Am I doing any of the hundreds of important tasks that I have to do today before going to sleep? Nope, not really, no.
