Math friends: you don’t know about omicron because it means “little o” and looks exactly like the Latin little o, which you wouldn’t use either because it looks like 0. Omega (“big o”) at least has a cool glyph. You should know the Greek alphabet because it’s for writing Greek.

I only recently discovered that “Gilded Age” was meant as a joke, in the sense of “not golden, just gilded” kind of like the “Gold Spray Paint Age”. Am I just obtuse or are others used to thinking of Gilded as unironically positive?
