Wazza Words for March 26th
Category : Uncategorized
Here’s an all-English post, thanks to a previous Dictionary.com post:
What do the words CLOWDER, MURDER, MURMURATION and SLOTH have in common?
They’re collective nouns. What do I mean? Well, you can have a CLOWDER of cats, a MURDER of crows, a MURMURATION of starlings, and a SLOTH of bears. And, while doing a Google search on the word MURMURATION, I found this absolutely breathtaking, amazing video, courtesy of theatlantic.com: http://www.theatlantic.com/video/archive/2011/11/a-murmuration-of-starlings/247878/.
(This video is on other sites, too.)
And, the quote for this week has to do with our minds:
“All the world is a laboratory to the inquiring mind.” – Martin H. Fischer
