Swung by goggle to check out the meaning of a word, and discovered that today is the 50th anniversary of NASA. On July 29th, 1958 NASA was established.
How cool is that.
Oh, the word I was looking up - Svengali. I wanted to find out the meaning, since a Law & Order: SVU episode I just finished watching was titled that.
SVENGALI: "a person who manipulates or exerts excessive control over another "
Etymology: Svengali, villainous hypnotist in the novel Trilby (1894) by George du Maurier
