comment Where did the “unavailable” meaning of “Out of Pocket” come from?
@the0ther: O. Henry probably didn't make it up, but is just the first one we know who'd written it down somewhere. Others most likely had already been using it in speech, and others may have written it down too.

comment Origin of the word “facebook”?
It's all on Wikipedia: "Harvard did not have a student "Facebook" (a directory with photos and basic information) " en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facebook#History / "A face book or Facebook is a printed or web directory found at American universities consisting of individuals’ photographs and names. In particular, it denotes publications of this type distributed by university administrations at the start of the academic year with the intention of helping students get to know each other."
