Word of the Day
- A drink made of molasses and water, and sometimes a little vinegar and ginger; also, rum and water sweetened with molasses, formerly a common beverage among American sailors; hence, in sailors' use, any strong drink, sweetened and flavored.
The origin of this word is unknown although it may be related to 'swizzle.'
Quote of the DayThus will the fondest dream of Phallic science be realized: a pristine new planet populated entirely by little boy clones of great scientific entrepreneurs free to smash atoms, accelerate particles, or, if they are so moved, build pyramids without any social relevance or human responsibility at all.
- Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941), U.S. author, columnist.
