The intellectual equivalent of a ham sandwich.

First of all, did you know you can use Google to very easily define words? You can try “define <word>” and wha-la, without a mouse click you’ve got a definition of the word right there!

Anywho, the other day I looked up the word parity (I am a nerd) and it has two pretty unique definitions.

  1. The state or condition of being equal, esp. regarding status or pay.
  2. The fact or condition of having borne children.

What! How can one word mean these two things! Maybe I’m weird, but I find that kind of funny and interesting.

  1. I too am a word geek. Half the time with google you don’t even need to enter in the “define” just the singular word and it will come up with a definition. I take advantage of this a lot.
