The purpose of modern American society...

... is to confuse future linguists. I mean, yes, okay: most instances aren't quite as obscure as the suffix "-gate" meaning "a political disaster". But with "-geddon" now added as meaning "a natural disaster", surely someone is going to wind up arguing that "-g-d" is the underlying root meaning "disaster", and there must be *some* religious implication of that, right?

(This rant brought to you by today's popular Twitter hashtag, #rainageddon, which I believe now officially marks it as a meme...)
