This is amusing. And a musing.

You may have noticed that there was no idle musing posted yesterday. It may be difficult to believe, but I do, frequently, have more than one idle musing in a day.
Often they are absurdly mundane: why is the gunk in a belly button called "lint"? What is the difference between sleet and freezing rain? Why is the dome in a house of worship so iconic, when in a home it's ridiculous?
These musings are hardly worthy of a post. I wracked my brain last night in search of a musing that was worth sharing and came up wanting.
Unfortunately, despite a further day of musings, I haven't much to add. Although I was surprised to learn that the slang term "jerk off" dates to the 1890s. Huh.
