Hey chick, this could be one we both like! Cats'N Roses

Of course, if this kind doesn't work out, we should still use the idea to make us a drink. Between boldar, turbopunk, and Glenn the bartender, I'm sure we can come up with something that both of us will like.

Subject:So weird it warrented some history.
Security:Public

ZENZIZENZIZENZIC
The eighth power of a number.

This word is long obsolete, so much so that the Oxford English Dictionary only has one citation for it, from a famous work by the English mathematician Robert Recorde, The Whetstone of Wit, published in 1557. It turns up from time to time as one of those weird words which is best known for being held up as an example of a weird word. (info from http://www.quinion.com/words/weirdwords/ww-zen1.htm)
