TissaTissa was a unit of time in Sri Lanka and probably also in ancient India. A time period of "One-day" had 60 Tissas or 30 Tissas day time and 30 Tissas night time. The word is still used in rural Sri Lanka. A Sinhalese synonym for Tissa is "Paya (pæyə)" or " Peya (peyə)". However, in modern usage the Sinhalese word one "Paya" means one hour and so a complete day period has 24 hrs.added by anonymous

DillerThe word ‘diller’ is a Yorkshire term for a boy who is dim-witted and stupid so this rhyme seems to be a moral lesson warning the importance of punctuality. The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes by Iona and Peter Opie (Oxford, OUP, 1951) suggests that ‘a diller, a dollar’ are taken from the words dilatory and dullard or that maybe ‘a diller, a dollar’ is related to dilly-dally. As English schools traditionally started at nine o’clock or earlier, anyone who arrived even at ten o’clock would certainly be very lateadded by anonymous

openInventopenInvent is a trademark registered by Ember Leona the openInvent.club name comes from the compound of two verbs "open" and "Invent". The logo shows an "open O" and "Slotted Letters" and an I shaped like a "lightbulb dot" or "Hourglass" to symbolize that the group is accepting of new members and focuses on public domain collaboration for community betterment. "Invent" is a verb about creating the noun "Invention". While the definition of Invention is not set in stone and tested by time, some believe that the creation of Invention involves designing and claiming ownership to the right to manufacturer and monopolize on commerce distribution. Whereas, I believe that the Articles of U.N. grants US(U.S./us) the right to give away real property. So in giving away the country's and citizenships property to the public and people of the state (ie more than 1 District Attorney) the open-ness of openInvent intentions are gratified.added by anonymous
