Res Ipsa Loquitor
It came to me in a flash
Sometimes I have revelations about stuff.  Sometimes they're about important things, like how to remove inaccessible brain tumors.  Other times, like just now,  it's stuff that's not that consequential, but is in the interest of word etymology.  The origin and historical development of the word "nippy" wasn't known—until just now.  Now it is.

You're welcome.
