I thought for awhile I was just imagining it, but I’m pretty sure my tail is getting shorter!Wait, you mean we were all just regular old Primates until that thing in Utah a few weeks ago Uplifted us? I knew I felt different recently, I just hadn't realized why...
Yup. Apparently some guy named "Norman" showed up among the Anglo-Saxons in 1066AD and tried to make them all speak French. Also why there are some redundant word pairs like "Cease and Desist" in legal writing.Oh, is that where cattle/beef, sheep/mutton, deer/venison, etc. come from? Often have I wondered.
Sorry for the unwelcome seriosity; please resume silliness.
Is "Earthling" a word outside science-fiction? I guess there isn't a lot of call for words saying "I'm from Earth" in a non-science-fiction context...I sort of got duped here. Seems like "Terran" isn't really a word outside science-fiction. Hm.
