The Inuit have different words for different kinds of snow. In English, we have one word for snow, and we use different words to modify. For instance: Heavy snow, wet snow, flakey snow, et cetera. The inuit have a seperate word for each type of snow.

Settled.

Did you know that the root of all life is (eventually) the big bang and therefore is the root of all evil?

Hmm. The beginning of all things was a big bang, and the beginning of each separate animal/insect life is a bang.

Quite interesting, that.
