I've been using this word for ages, often when playing my online games or when talking to somebody who just had a great victory over someone or something, but I never realized there's more to the word than what it seems!

Did you know that WOOT is actually an acronym originally used by gamers to express victory, joy, or excitement?

WOOT = We Owned the Other Team

Now ain't that a cool definition of the word?

Recently, this word has been named as the word of the year by Merriam-Webster!
Isn't that so... Woooooooot!

Thanks Kin for sharing this one!

Number of Horns on a Unicorn

Friday, December 7, 2007

Yes, this might sound too common sense-ical for you, but did you know that Google actually has the answer if you search for the number of horns on a unicorn?

I'm not exactly sure how the Google Calculator computes for the results. If you enter all other dumb phrases (like "number of alphabets" or the "number of fingers on your right hand"), Google doesn't have the answer for it. But if you enter phrases like:

"Number of months in a year"
"number of centimeters in a meter"
and even
"number of horns on a unicorn"

Google has answers for those. Cool eh?
