I guess etymology is my thing.  For some reason I pick up on little things 
like that quickly.

But, this is why *I* can't go on Jeopardy, I would've been screwed in that 
entire category. :D

I'd get on and it'd be nothing but categories like "Danish Royal Lineage," 
"Samoan Flowers," "Fads from a Decade Ben Didn't Live Through" and "Stuff 
That Ben Forgot From High School."

...or worse, there'd be a category for "Internet Abbreviations" and I'd 
miss some...
