Crushing blow to the knowledge base.

The Japanese word for stapler, hochikisu, is named after the brand, Hotchkiss, rather than a word constructed as the onomatopoeia for the sound of a stapler in action, as I had presumed since learning the word 3 1/2 years ago. This is a new definition to the word "disappointment," which is not dissimilar to the sound of my head hitting a wall.
