@DoubleAA I'd consider a person who wears stone gloves to be absolutely insane.

Is there a way to figure out that chart algorithmically? Number of centuries since "year 500"?

@DoubleAA - Haha, and right you are. I studied this in a few places, but I was feeling a bit lazy while coding and decided it makes a good question for this site regardless.

comment Is there a hebrew term for Jahrzeit?
@msh210 I'm very much aware of what German is. I don't care about the OED. The word Jahr and Zeit haven't changed between those two evolutions of Hochdeutsch. Word usage and grammar have changed, but those words still exist. As far as this conversation goes, German refers to the several evolutions of Germanic languages represented by modern German. Don't get me started on Yiddish. Excuse me for saying this, but Yiddish is a "crowd sourced" language. If it's from Yiddish, it's really from German or wherever. What I like to call Hickdeutsch.
