Heh, knew the first two immediately (sewing enthusiast). BUT, they spelled it "armsaye" and it`s actually "armscye". Gawd, it bugs me soo bad too. I`m pathetic. >.> I knew the dragees too. Heh. I`m so strange.

In the article they say that the word "Octothorpe" was created by Bell Labs` engineer Don Macpherson in the 1960s by combining octo-, as in eight, with the name of one of his favourite athletes, 1912 Olympic decathlon champion Jim Thorpe. In fact this ancient symbol for numbering derives from thorpe, the Old Norse word for a village or farm that is often seen in British placenames. The symbol was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorp, "8 fields". Just to let you know!

And now...

What the drat, geek

I heard something similiar that goes: "A man was born with no eyelids, so doctors took some skin from his anus and made him some eyelids, but now he has a crappy outlook on life."

My dad has a term that should be added to the list:

Rectaloptomy - a surgery that severs the the optic nerve that runs from the eye to the anus, thus healing the patient from his crappy outlook on life.

When my dad shared that with me, I laughed so hard I cried.

"DRAGÉES - Small beadlike pieces of candy, usually silver-coloured, used for decorating cookies, cakes and sundaes."

I just read that word in a book I was reading yesterday. I kind of figured that`s what it meant.

well, I definitely knew spraints, because I`m a zoologist, and we use spraints to identify otter presence at a river, and analyze their contents to see what the otters have been eating.

As far as I care, the only time you use the word `aglet` is if you have a pet.

"Oh crap, the dog chewed off all my aglets!"
^My dogs used to that a lot.

everyone know what aglets are. theyre so insignificant and the use of the word is well useless which makes it comical if used in everyday conversation. hence popularity.


if the plastic end on your shoelace is everyday conversation for you...... you might want to think over why people give up while your halfway through a sentence

I feel like this is a repost that or a similar list was already done by someone else. The only ones I knew were punt and aglet. Maybe that`s because I didn`t read the list the first time I saw it. I am so using zarf next time I go for coffee with people.

Damnit... I laughed out loud at that one.

Hehe... peen....

Anyway, I`ve only heard of one of those.
15. KICK or PUNT - The indentation at the bottom of some wine bottles. It gives added strength to the bottle but lessens its holding capacity.
My dad told me about it.
