It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.

There's a Word for When You Can't Remember a Word


There's actually a word for when you're trying to say something and suddenly forget a specific word. It's "lethologica." But is there a different word for when you can't remember the word for when you can't remember a word? Not yet!

43
The Record Lowest Temperature in the U.S. Was -80°F


It can get pretty chilly in some parts of the U.S., but the coldest recorded temperature ever in the country happened in January 1971 in Prospect Creek, Alaska. While it might be hard to believe—and will certainly make you shiver at the thought—it dropped down to a staggering -80°F (-62.2°C). Brrrr!

44
Male Monkeys Will Pay to Look at Female Monkeys


Researchers at Duke University Medical Center have discovered that male rhesus macaques will pay—that is, give up their "juice rewards"—to check out the backsides of lady macaques. True story!

45
A "Ghost Word" Is a Word that Became a Word by Error


On occasion, a word finds its way into existence not because of normal linguistic evolution or a cultural reference, but rather due to a mistake like a misinterpretation or a misprint in the dictionary. These terms are called "ghost words."

For instance, in 1934, Webster's Second New International Dictionary included the non-existent word "dord" after someone misread a note written by Austin M. Paterson, Webster's former chemistry editor. According to Grammarly, "The note said 'D or d, cont./density,' and it referred to the uppercase letter D (or lowercase d) being used as an abbreviation for density. 'D or d' became 'dord,' a word that meant 'density.'" A Webster's editor noticed the error five years later and removed it from the dictionary, but other dictionary compilers repeated the initial error, allowing the word to haunt the English language for far too long.

46
Legal Sea Food's Clam Chowder Has Been Served at Every Presidential Inauguration Since Reagan


During former President Ronald Reagan's first inauguration in 1981, he insisted that food from every state be included. Legal Sea Foods' clam chowder was to represent Massachusetts and has been at every inauguration since then.

President Donald Trump nearly ended the tradition, until it was decided days before his inaugural ceremonies to serve the dish.

47
The Burnt Part of a Candlewick Is Called the "Snaste"


While it might be a word that you won't find yourself using any time soon, the burnt part of a candlewick is called the "snaste."

48
Horseshoe Crabs Have Eyes All Over Their Bodies


Horseshoe crabs have 10 eyes in total, including ones near their mouth, on the top of their shell, and down their tail.

49
Lenny Kravitz and Al Roker Are Related


While the mild-mannered weatherman and the rock star may have drastically different demeanors, they're actually pretty closely related: Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz share a great-great-grandfather.

50
Cheese May Prevent Nightmares


In a 2013 study conducted by the British Cheese Board, all participants who ate cheese before bed reported having no nightmares. But blue cheese consumption did have a tendency to make dreams a bit odd.

51
French Poodles Aren't French


The French Poodle is widely believed to have first been bred in Germany, not France. In fact, the word "poodle" comes from the German word "pudelhund," a combination of words meaning "dog" and "to splash."

52
Night Owls Tend to Be Smarter Than Early Birds


Feel bad that you're never well-rested enough to head out for a jog before the sun's up? Don't be. Research published in Personality and Individual Differences suggests that night owls tend to have higher I.Q.s than early risers.

Ahhhh, just now sitting down. Had a great walk at the park this afternoon. Came home and made turtles (brownie, caramel, nuts, chocolate) with the boys. Cleaned up the kitchen. Now sitting and going "ahhhh" and counting down 3 hours to see if it was worth it. wavegirl
