    So they took a word that is a name, a noun, and made it a verb. I guess then someone can take another word that is also a noun and use it as a pronoun.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Would you believe ... it was a typo. The chosen name had been "googol,"

      https://www.businessinsider.com.au/t...ackrub-2015-10

      Anderson checked to see if that domain name was taken, but accidentally searched for “google.com” instead of “googol.com.” Page liked that name even better, and registered the domain name for Brin and himself on September 15, 1997.

      Yup; Nouns - usually but not limited to titles - serve as pronouns quite often.

        From good old wiki

        A googol is the large number 10100. In decimal notation, it is written as the digit 1 followed by one hundred zeroes
        You really don’t read, do you? tabibito already pointed that out and I already acknowledged my error.

        So you may now get down off your high horse and quit being such a pedant.

          Isn't that ironic given your misreading of my comments? However, I am glad the situation has been resolved to everyone's satisfaction

            I don't know if Kasha kept the flag or not. But she told me she was going to draw a rainbow so she could remember God's true meaning of the beautiful arch.

              And a good time was had by all?
              The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.
