the word "till" which looks like a sorta abbreviation of "until", is actually the older word.
Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong,
And I am Marie of Romania.
talking to someone you like about how being shy sucks because they can't tell someone else that they like is absurdly frustrating

doesn't till mean to turn soil over to aerate it?
i've seen something called a garden tiller before and it's this awaesome claw dealy that you could kick some serious ass with/provide your carrot crop with the oxygen it so richly deserves.
it is. it is also where the money lives in a cash register, and a type of ground (like dirt, clay, etc), and the word which until derived from. it is many things. it is every woman. hear it roar.
i always though until came before till.. when did they start adding the "un" and dropping the second "l"?
Usage Note: Till and until are generally interchangeable in both writing and speech, though as the first word in a sentence until is usually preferred: Until you get that paper written, don't even think about going to the movies. ·Till is actually the older word, with until having been formed by the addition to it of the prefix un-, meaning “up to.” In the 18th century the spelling 'till became fashionable, as if till were a shortened form of until. Although 'till is now nonstandard, 'til is sometimes used in this way and is considered acceptable, though it is etymologically incorrect.
i've always been a sucker for useless little facts like that..
same here. i think it's funny how knowing some fact makes you seem smarter the more useless the fact is
isn't there a book somewhere with 1001 of those useless little facts that make you seem smarter? i could really use a book like that. i'm still having a hard time convincing people i'm actually not a moron.. *lol*
