What is the meaning of the word factoid?
Norman Mailer introduced the word factoid in his 1973 book Marilyn. He invented it by combining the word fact with -oid, a scientific suffix that means “resembling but not identical to.” In other words, it’s something that looks like a fact, but isn’t. Factoids are built from rumours and used by irresponsible journalists to create a story when none exists.

    Button Cards

    Button shapes resemble many seasonal things, as on these simple cards made of folded card stock. Construction paper cut outs and a snip of ribbon help turn green buttons into a wreath, tiny red ones into holly berries, and white ones into a friendly snowman. (When theyre turned vertically, the holes in the snowmans belly button look like buttons themselves.)
