During my years swimming in the sea of knowlege that is computer science, I've come across some fun facts and tid bits of info that i though were cute enough to take note of. One note worthy fact for http, the word "referer", isn't spelled correctly, a typo that wasn't corrected before it was standardised or something lulzy. Another one is that PHP is a recursive acronym, PHP hypertext preprocessor. I thought these were cool facts untill i looked up "GNU" which stands for GNU's Not Unix...ok and there are a bunch of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recursive_acronym
GNU could have easily been ZNU "ZNU's Not Unix" or "SNU's Not Unix" i don't get whether this is a joke of a lack of creativity and i'm a little dissapointed that many of these acronyms i have in my head are completely arbitraty
I just thought i'd kill eveyone's good mood with my rant.
