Favorite misunderstood jargon of the moment...

There's this Sun Microsystems Solaris computer by the window in my office.

Being a little too much of a geek, I referred to it as the 'sun box by the window'.

When my coworker heard this, they imagined a parallel universe where an artificial sun is trapped in a box attached to the window providing many of the benefits of a Sun.


People are always hearing better things than what I've said or meant.

Such boxes exist, in a manner. Particularly for high-latitude locations, where seasonal depression is linked to sun exposure. For example, SunBox.com
