useless fact of the day

recently i have been calling firstborn a 'div' but then became concerned that i might be using it incorrectly so after a wee bit of research i now know:

it is a derogatory term meaning 'stupid' but it has two origins

1. a scouse term as the nearest mental asylum to liverpool was the deva hospital (from the roman word when they were in blighty) which the locals misread as diva

2. prison inmates all had jobs but the job considered the lowest for the stupidest was making cardboard dividers for boxes
