Nerd Observation: The Word Parity

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.

Dear Ellen,

Recently I have gotten back into comic books. This is a pretty nerdy development, but wait … there’s more.

My friend and I don’t say we’re going to buy comics on some Wednesdays after work, we say we’re going to the LCS … Which is an acronym for Local Comic Shop.

Now to dig out my Robotech DVDs!!

Sincerely,

Why am I doing this?

Dear Winner

I’m watching football and scanning old family photos today and stumbled on this – fantastic.
