Words, word, words...
How about some new abbreviations? I read an article in which the author was dating a find in an ice core and referred to the date as 660 BCE.
WTF is BCE??

CE and BCE

Common Era (CE) and Before Common Era (BCE)

The letters CE or BCE in conjunction with a year mean after or before year 1. The Common Era begins with year 1 in the Gregorian calendar.

CE and BCE are used in exactly the same way as the traditional abbreviations AD and BC.
AD is short for Anno Domini, Latin for year of the Lord. BC is an abbreviation of Before Christ.

Because AD and BC hold religious (Christian) connotations, many prefer to use the more modern and neutral CE and BCE to indicate if a year is before or after year 1.

We seem to be moving further and further away from belief in Jesus Christ.
sad, sad, sad.

OK then, photography seems to be popular around these parts, betcha never knew this one:

Bokeh

In photography, bokeh (Japanese: boke) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light".
