A procedure in which the hair of an african-american boy is straightened through the use of potatoes, lye,vaseline,and soap. It is a mark of passage to adulthood and masculinity, because of the intense pain inherent in the process.
''Damn right, it's hot, thats the lye...it's going to burn when I comb it in--it burns bad...Shorty started combing it in. But then my head caught fire... The comb felt as if it was raking my skin off.''

Older British slang for "nose."
"I… hit him repeatedly on the conk. My reason for this was that his conk was covered with carbuncles, and I thought I should vex him by taking such liberties with his conk—which in fact I did."

-Quoted from Thomas de Quincey, "On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts," first published 1827.

"Cool".

Actually a texting error, when texting "cool" using 0-9 keys. Hit the correct keys but with the wrong count, yet it looks like a real word for cool.

Could be the first word invented by a machine.
