  • Star of a Classical Greek class joke:

    Here we have the hortatory or "garden variety" subjunctive, which can often be translated as "let us."

  • I first came across this word when researching for a paper on optical sensors. I came across a book in the library titled "Optical Solutions" or at least that's how I read it, and I assumed a big book on optical solutions must have a section on sensors! It took several minutes of increasingly confused attempts to find said section before I took a good look at the word "solution" and realized that it actually said "soliton." Sadly, the book did not feature any optical soliton based sensors...
