The Etymology of "Dude"

My experience confirms the observations of several people who have published on dude: it has become an all-purpose form of address among young men. Surveys show that college age women also use it, but my notes contain no examples. In future, dude may develop like guy. You guys is now unisex; one day, you dudes may become equally “cool.” A very full overview of the history of dude can be found in the journal Comments on Etymology 23/1, 1993, 1-46. Not surprisingly, the origin of dude is unknown.

Read more on the etymology of "dude" here. Also, I love that his notes have no examples of women using it - as I refer to my friends, both male and female, as "dude". I blame it on the Ninja Turtles.

Goats Have Accents!

Researchers found the animals develop their own speaking voice when they move away from their siblings and mingle with others.
They found that a goats' "accent' changed as they grew older and moved in different groups, disproving claims that their voices were entirely genetic.
The team, from Queen Mary University of London, said their findings are the first to suggest that most mammals can develop an accent from their surroundings.
Previously, only a select group of mammals including humans, elephants and dolphins were thought to be able to pick up an accent.
Experts assumed that other species' "voices" were dictated by genetics and not their surroundings.

Beethoven Hair Music



This is what Beethoven's hair sounds like:

"The DNA was passed to Scots composer Stuart Mitchell, who is involved with a technique called "Cymatics," which focuses on the shapes that musical frequencies make when passed through either water or a layer of sand. Mitchell pinpointed the 22 unique amino acids in Beethoven's DNA and assigned to each one a note on a musical stave directly related to the amino acids' resonant frequency. From these frequencies he composed a piece of music for piano and viola based on Beethoven's DNA."

Another song/Flash 'toon from the dude who created Muffin Tops. Also catchy. (Though I like girls with glasses.)

Zombie Musician



This is Khulekani Kwakhe "Mgqumeni" Mseleku, a South African singer who might, in fact, be a zombie...

Mgqumeni, who apparently died in December 2009 after drinking a poisonous concoction he got from a traditional healer, returned to his home in Mquthu, near Dundee, in northern KwaZulu-Natal, on Saturday last week.

Word of his return caused thousands of followers to flock - from as far away as Gauteng and the Free State - to his home, where the frail-looking muso was shown to the public for the first time yesterday.

"I am Mgqumeni. And I know that some of you might not believe, but yes, it's true . it's me," he greeted his fans.

"I have been suffering a lot at the place where I was kept with zombies. It was hell there and I am so grateful that I was able to free myself and return to my family and you, my supporters. I promise to continue singing once I gather enough strength," he said.

Mgqumeni claimed that he was not dead but had been kept with zombies in a place he cannot remember.
