Fake Etymologies

Interesting is better than true.

sev‧en, adj. /ˈsɛv.ən/

From German sieben, meaning “to fill to capacity” or “to complete.” In the Old Testament, seven is the number associated with completeness, perfection, and Yahweh. In the same way, six is associated with incompleteness, imperfection, and (thrice, for emphasis) Satan.
