Today I asked google, “what is the definition of austerity?” I found a great answer specific to all that is going on in Greece and I also learned that austerity was Merriam-Webster’s ‘most searched word’ in 2010.
As I neared the end of the source article, a strange fact caught my attention: woot was Merriam-Webster’s ‘most searched word’ in 2007. No lie.
I’m not sure what that says about us humans - especially about who we were in 2007?!. …but I’m convinced it says something.
