mortone commented on the word plotz
Plotz: from Yiddish, meaning to drop like a stone and be really dead. That it sounds just like the English word "plots" (as in funeral plots, not as in story lines) is probably coincidental. Probably.

mollusque commented on the word plotz
For years I thought this meant "collapse". Then I found out it meant "burst". Now I see in OED2 that it can mean "To sit down wearily; to flop; to slouch; to loaf," so I was right to begin with.
