So you know, everything in the world is getting smaller. Especially words. For example, just a decade ago, pansies who cried and whined about everything were known as "goth". Nowadays, they are labeled "emo". As you can see they managed to shave off one letter. This doesn't seem like a huge change until you realize that two centuries ago, those same pansies were known as "suapafta", a Cheyenne word which stands for shut up and pitch a fucking tent already.
