Algorism, n.: A statement, easily disproved, claiming credit for something.
Today is Al Gore's 62nd birthday. At one time or another, to some degree or another, the Nobel Prize-winner has said that he was instrumental in the creation of the Internet, and in coining the terms "nanotechnology" and "the Information Superhighway."
Wait around long enough, and Gore will claim he discovered global warming.
Anagram of the day:
Albert Arnold Gore = blander rot galore
This is also the 62nd birthday, by the way, of Rhea Perlman, who played Carla on Cheers. She coined a word of her own: Birdzilla, the oversized turkey that Norm stuck in her oven on Thanksgiving Day.
