Do you know the origination of TESTIFY?
Here is a funny result on Google:)
"In law and in religion, testimony is a solemn attestation as to the truth of a matter. The act of providing testimony is to testify. It is often mentioned, in addition, that the word 'testify' originates from Roman times when it was customary for men to vouch for others by swearing on their testicles, or to 'testify'. "


the word 'testify' originates from Roman times when it was customary for men to vouch for others by swearing on their testicles, or to 'testify'.
(testify起源于罗马时代,当时男人们习惯用这个词表达"他们用他们的睾丸发誓以向别人保证某件事情"的意思,或者说"to tetify")
Wow~
