I've done some more research on the awesome / awful debate, well, as much research as you really can do in about 5 minutes (the video is just over 4 minutes). But that's all I needed to find a lesson on English word origins from someone who speaks English as a second language. Don't let that dissuade you from believing her though. Just one look at her tells me I would sit riveted to the edge of my seat for hours on end listening to every bit of wisdom she has to impart. See for yourself.
