The weather affects so many decisions we make each day: what to wear, where to eat lunch, how to travel. We have these things in common, and we can talk about them if we try.

The Meaning Of "Sad"
  • In Old English, sæd, meant full.
  • In German, satt, still means full.
  • In Latin, satis, meant enough.
  • By the 14th century, sad meant firm and resolute thus developing the seriousness of the word.
  • In the modern era, sad now means that "one is in sorrow" or someone who is weary and tired.

This sign has a lot of possible origins. The popularisation is attributed to Ronnie James Dio in the 1970s. Dio says his Italian grandmother inspired him to pick up on the "corna" gesture to ward off the "evil eye" and bad luck.

His grandmother might have been inspired by the 1897 novel Dracula, which mentions characters using the sign to protect themselves from the evil eye.

Poor social skills are a real disadvantage because this is often seen as a moral failure rather than a merely intellectual one. 

Having good social skills is more risk-avoidance than reward-seeking. Having good social skills is about avoiding misfires which cause mutual communication to break down.
