Upgraded our phones and forgot how horrible mobile browsing is without proper ad blocking. Immediate priority is figuring out how to root a Moto X4 and getting my phone back.

So I was wondering about the use of ‘hermanos’ for ‘siblings’, and it looks like latin languages don't have an equivalent.

And then I wondered why the english word didn't resemble the german word [that I know] - ‘geschwister’.

And then it turned out that ‘siblings’ is that rareſt of rarities: An english word that's actually english:
