comment Where do we get the word “peanut”?
Fair enough, but how did this become common? Sure, scientifically it's a legume, but typically common names for things come from common folk, not botanists. It even grows underground, unlike peas; I see no reason a lay person would associate peas with peanuts at all. (except maybe coming in a pod?)

comment What is the origin of “daemon” with regards to computing?
I find it highly coincidental that this question has been posed so soon after this was posted to the r/programming reddit (and is currently at the very top of my homepage)

comment Which is the correct spelling: “grey” or “gray”?
I was once docked points on an elementary school spelling quiz for spelling it grey -- the spelling I was more used to seeing in the books (mostly by British authors) that I read.
