A trivia item a day... how I am constructing my final section on 'Fast Facts and Trivia: Is any of it true?' I've just combined the last two sections because they don't really fit into two categories anyway.

The first three items, which I've been working on for the past couple days, are the origin of the toothbrush, the microwave, and, in a way, the kneecap, though not in that order. I shall probably re-arrange them a bit as I add more.

I'll come back when I've finished the whole thing... it's called Odds, Ends and Beginnings.

Finally finished with said new page!

It's really long and detailed, and I hope for my readers, fun! These are five words/phrases whose 'netymology' I once received in my email. There was a lot to explore on each one, and though all of them turned out to be false, it's a really interesting read!

Behold: Fun Facts and Trivia: is any of it true? Word and Phrase Origins!

Finally, a new page!

It's another section of the page 'Fast Facts and Trivia: Is any of it true?' called Word and Phrase Origins. Incidentally, none of the 'facts' about these particular word and phrase origins have turned out to be true.

However, I've been so busy with college in the past month that I've only managed to finish the first couple of items by this time. Now that I'm on Spring Break, I can go back to building my website, so I'll continue building this section piece by piece.

Count on it.
