Things I learned today

- definition of "gainsay," which appeared in the songbook tonight (song 57 for those of you who use the same songbook as I use): "To oppose, especially by contradiction." From the middle English "gain," for against, and "sayen" for say. Who knew?

- Diet Coke and Mentos is a real scientific demonstration, not just an urban myth. See

- Why they call them Milk Duds: the candy was supposed to be spherical, so the ones that collapsed (which was most of them), were "duds."
