In cauda venenum

                   

In cauda venenum è una locuzione latina il cui significato letterale è «Il veleno [è] nella coda».

La frase nasce riferendosi allo scorpione, che in sé sarebbe poco pericoloso, ma ha per l'appunto una coda altamente velenosa.

Nel senso traslato, la locuzione viene usata quando un discorso inizia in maniera melliflua, e alla fine piazza la stoccata finale. È la morale della favola di Fedro, in cui la volpe loda il candore del corvo e la sua bella voce, per strappargli di bocca il formaggio. Viene spesso riferito anche a Marziale, per indicare la natura dei suoi epigrammi (presentazione di una situazione e "stoccata" satirica nel finale).

Assieme ad Acer in fundo viene spesso usato a contrasto della locuzione (di significato opposto) dulcis in fundo.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
