Description
Most dictionaries supply words you need; this one reveals words people wish they hadn't said. For instance, Bill Clinton's quibbling, "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is". Or, the 1943 prediction by IBM chairman Thomas Watson that "there is a world market for about five computers". Even Aristotle got it wrong: to conceive a child that looks like its father, he claimed the woman should "look earnestly on the man". Millennial extra: a section of apocalyptic predictions.
