  • I can't help but be slightly amused whenever I hear this word, even when it's used in the context of horrible disasters. I had been having trouble figuring out why, but I think I've got it: the first place I heard it was probably the television show Tiny Toon Adventures, on which there was a character called "Calamity Coyote."

    It's amazing how, at least for me, my first exposure to a word can permanently color my perception of it.
