Apparently the word “gospel”  comes from an Old English “godspel” meaning “good news”. 

The word “God”  does not come from the Old English for “good”, of course. But confusion between “God” and “god” (pronounced kinda like “gode” I think) did kinda turn gospel from meaning any kind of good news to Have You Heard The Good News About Our Lord and Saviour?

(I think “god” meaning like “deity” also goes back to Old English, and derives from Proto-Germanic.)

Bothers me when people assume that Americans would have a British accent if the American Revolution hadn’t happened. 

British people didn’t even have what we consider British accents that point. Accents on both sides of the Atlantic have changed, because that’s what accents do.

Really bothers me when people say something like “how did Americans lose their accent”. They didn’t, their accent just changed. And really I should say “accents changed”.

My older brother’s back from Taiwan! He got me this SICK lucha libre wood block keychain/pendant!

I don’t know what to call him. He has a ‘W’ on his belt, so he’s ‘Double’ for now. “El Double”.
