Didn't they add led to gasoline till someone figured it was poisoning the world?
So they said the would remove led from gasoline and raised prices for taking out the led that they put in? How did they get it into light bulbs? Is it a carry over from kerosene lamps?
I knew we would get back to the big jokes

Starting to realize that eternal fate has turned its back on him

It did.
According to Merriam-Webster:
... the word is relatively new (with an emphasis on "relatively"), evidence suggesting that it originated near the end of the 19th century. Our earliest citation is from 1880:

They misused xenomania. It should be xenophilia.

Aren’t “xenophilia” and “xenomania” synonymous, and antonyms for the word “xenophobia”?
