20 STASHED IDEAS
The word mamihlapinatapai comes from the Yaghan language of Tierra del Fuego. It refers to the wordless, meaningful look shared by two people who both want to initiate something, but are both reluctant to.
It can also refer to another unspoken look between two people. It captures the feeling that from just this look, each person knows the other understands, and is in agreement.
Mamihlapinatapai is the Guinness Book of World Records "most succinct word". It is remarkably difficult to translate.
