I just spent the last hour and a half being thoroughly absorbed in reading on the etymology and orthography surrounding various words. Only reason I'm tearing myself away from it now is that I actually have a little bit of work to do, but I'll be back.

Did you know the 'ac' in acquire comes from an 'ad', but the 'd' turns into a 'c' when put in front of a 'q'? woah! I also never knew "founder" was a verb. I only knew the noun usage of it. Go public education system! :)

I blame this page, and a not insignificant application of this plugin. :)
