#Latin Moment! Day Twelve

This will be- the one Latin moment that matters and this will be- the Latin moment to remember! Apologies to OK Go.

Moment comes from the Latin for movement, which is "momentum." It meant the smallest weight that would move a pointer on a scale. It later became a word describing a short moment of time, and in the 13th century it was defined as a 40th of an hour.

Stay safe, Lynul
