aught is a fun word
Every time I make coffee I look at the Espresso machine, which is a “Rumba,” and think of my Roomba.
The best thing of a Roomba is that if I ever have kids, and they buy my a Rosie the Robotic Maid, I can be indignant and say: “Ahhh, whippersnappers. I’ve had robots cleaning up after me since back in the summer of aught 7.”
Meanwhile my Xbox 360 has once again died, the trick only lasting a few days after all.
Elsewhere in my mind, I had the following idea: iterate through every word in the english language and do a search for it. Create a list of every word whose first result is a dictionary page.
For most cool words (like aught), that’s the case.
