Everywhere you turn these days you hear about a new research study which claims to prove this or that. Many are interesting and useful while others appear to be stupid and a waste of time. And many reach a conclusion with obvious results that we already knew. Studies with self-evident...

The Art of the Nickname

A nickname is usually a descriptive moniker given instead of, or in addition to, one’s formal name. It often describes an aspect of a person’s nature, accomplishments or appearance that carries a particular resonance. Some nicknames are the result of an individual’s achievements such as Alexander the Great or William the Conqueror. Others are given to reflect an aspect of a person’s character such as bravery. Examples of this include King Richard the Lionhearted and Stonewall Jackson. The problem with nicknames, however, is that in most cases you don’t get to choose them. They are usually chosen for you and they sometimes aren’t...

Manwords Jun12

Manwords

Lately, there have been many old words that have been updated with the word “man” in them. But unlike names of superheroes, the word “man” goes at the beginning of the word, not at the end. Maybe it’s because they’re meant to portray something evil or at least slightly annoying. The list of new words with the prefix man- is pretty long, including terms like mansplaining, manslamming, and manspreading. However, why stop there? Here are more words that the word needs. a) Manreaching When a tall man grabs something you need from a high shelf  for you because you’re too short to get it yourself. b)...
