Interesting thing is the English language.

How words can mean different things in different ways

Grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the image brings to mind

That was the challenge , so I picked up the nearest book – A book of science written by the Television Historian and Scientist – Adam Hart-Davis

The tenth word in his book – BROWNIE

(some English Female readers will now turn their minds to memories of schooldays and Girl Guides – Founded by Olave Baden Powell.  The Brownies being their junior section, much like the Cubs are to the Scouts)

The symbol of the Girl Guide Junior Movement – The Brownies

 

Mr Hart-Davis was of course referring to one of his first cameras, as the book contains a number of photographs to answer scientific questions – such as the title question – “why does a ball bounce ?”

Its got some brilliant photos in it and answers 101 questions of science in a fun way using some colourful photography.

However, upon putting the term in on Google Images – The first major picture was of more of a culinary, chocolatey kind.  Nice with a cup of tea (or Cocoa). Now If there would have been a picture of a Brownie Guide cooking Brownies (the cakes) at camp – that would have been perfect!  Alas – I’m not in charge at Google so the two images will have to remain separate
