Question Encouragement and a Question

The problem with gaining the resources
one has for long thought are the thing stopping
one from doing something grand and useless
is that there always are other limits.

But fear not, my friends
for with courage, determination
and glorious randomness we can yet prevail!

Speaking of journals I wonder
why the same word applies
to

Quote:
  1. A diary or daily record of a person.
  2. A newspaper or magazine dealing with a particular subject.
(Wiktionary)

Explain this to me, those of you
whose blood flows with the language of English
and I will thank you, for this I wish to know.

And from those of you,
who admit no such flow I ask
what do you think of journals?

Libby always comes back...eventually. A journal can be a few things - a notebook or such where one keeps a record of something, or a diary, or a scholarly publication.

Anyway, there are a lot of words in English that mean more than one thing. Surely you knew that already.

Not unless it's Spidy's cat, who is apparently a wombat.

Another wombat:

Cool

I'll be the annoying youngling in the back seat... "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

NOPE: not to 200



And for the record, add one more to the sleep's naked column. And wow... terez, WTG! hehe

Lets get this party started!

Oh, and Libby -- one reason journal refers both to a publication on a particular topic as well as a diary... technically, a diary is written on a particular topic (the life of the author)... these often occur in serial volumes as author gains experience or runs out of paper - they just generally remain unpublished. The other reason is because the english language likes to have options... it thinks it would be boring to have only one word for each thing.
