Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe

The programme of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe was launched in 1987 to show how the roots of European identity can be the foundation of a shared citizenship.
Cultural Routes demonstrate, by means of a journey through space and time, how the heritage and cultures of different and distant regions of Europe contribute to a shared cultural heritage. Cultural Routes put into practice the fundamental principles promoted by the Council of Europe: human rights, democracy, participation, cultural diversity and identity. They encourage intercultural dialogue, mutual exchange and enrichment across boundaries and centuries.

Washington Post's Mensa invitational

The Washington Post's Mensa invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are the 2009 winners:

1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

2. Ignoranus : A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

3. Intaxication : Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with. 
(Read the rest and many more here).

These are 2017 submissions....
