PopQuizzical Daily! for September 7, 2013
This date in 1951 a peace treaty was signed formally ending hostilities with Japanin World War II. In what city was that treaty signed?
The Pacific Ocean.
Ah, the peaceful Pacific. And you thought it just meant that large body of water next to the left coast. Pacific is derived (like a lot of Romance language words) from Latin, namely from the base words pac and pax – meaning peace. That’s different from the PAX I just got back from, however.
