Serendipity: a fortuitous happenstance.
For example, Patrick posts about Fracking, the slang term for hydraulic fracturing. He and I both know it is amusing at another level because this gem of a show,Battlestar Galactica, the rebooted one, not the original, was great (trust me, even my wife who does not like sci–fi liked it). They needed a way to make the hardscrabble life of fighter pilots come alive. So they invented “frak” as a replacement for fuck.
This led me to recall Stephen Colbert’s similar end-run around the FCC’s ban on certain words. Start at 3:10 to get it. I can’t embed the video. But it is frakking hilarious.
