    Before the era of modern astronomy, a star that appeared suddenly where none had been seen before was called a nova, or ''new star''.

    The origin of the word "mustard" comes from two Latin words (mustum ardens) which means "burning must" because in ancient times mustard was prepared with must (unfermented grape juice). This word then gave rise to the word "mustard" in English.

    Blorenge rhymes with a lot of words. Will your response hinge on the cringe factor of witnessing a sureshsbinge???
