Found a cool word today in my court transcript work:


Nidus - a nest in which spiders or insects deposit their eggs.

- a central point or locus of an infection in an organism; "the focus of infection."

Synonyms - Focus

See Also -focal infection, hornet's nest, nest, point, wasp's nest.

Unfortunately, I have no place to use it today, but I'm sure eventually it will come in handy. I still remember the day I learned hubris. I was so pleased.

I appreciate the new word. I have always loved hubris, too.
