Why aren’t eleven and twelve called oneteen and twoteen (Why isn’t Ovaltine called Roundtine)? Every other number greater than ten is a combination of some sort. Twenty-one, twenty-two, ninety-eight, one hundred and one – all of these follow the same … Continue reading

Burqas & Niqabs – the Jawas among us
