This has been an interesting romp down the wormhole of time. :)

My first introduction to "moiety" was in Heinlein's "Citizen of the Galaxy." I had no clue what it meant, but eventually looked it up. I don't think I've run into the word again until now.

I thought this was hilarious. Read it to my husband - he didn't laugh. Oops.
