Ive found in time the search on this forum was shit but if you google whatever keywords with the word hipinion, you get what you're looking for most of the time. I mean even when they keywords aren't exact.

is this a reverse don don

always thought boxing day was called that bc of christmas sales

turns out

Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a 'Christmas Box' from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give 'Christmas Boxes' to their families.

Somehow I just realized that the theme music to Sunday Night Football is set to the music of "I Hate Myself for Loving You" and how perfect that is

loyal/legal is a pair in the same way royal/regal is. legal and regal retain the latin form, while loyal and royal entered english via the (old) french leal and real. loyal has the sense of being faithful and true in carrying out one's duties, legal or otherwise.

"Pentium" comes from the "pent" prefix like "pentagon" because it was the rebranding of what would have been the 586 successor to the 486 cpu.

Not sure if it's been said here before, but the "zoa" in protozoa is the same zoa as zoo. proto-animals.

biscotti, via the latin biscoctum, literally means twice cooked, as indeed biscotti are.

biscotti/biscotto is also the origin of biscuit, though most things we think of as biscuits — whether in the american sense or the british sense — aren’t twice baked.

The Macarena is a pop song from 1993 and not a traditional Southern European jig

Like, Mussolini's Armata Italiana weren't doing the Macarena as they starved to death in a Soviet prison camp

Well it's also a Spanish language song, so Mussolini wouldn't sing it for that reason too.
