Where does the word “Suffragette” come from? It sounds like it has something to do with “suffering”. Does it?
Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.
Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Point Blank” comes from the French “pointé à blanc“ — where ‘blanc’ is French for white. It referred to pointing (straight) at the WHITE circle that appeared in the middle of shooting targets. Meant you were close enough to the target to point straight the the middle (blanc) without having to worry about the trajectory path of the shot/bullet.
