Ahh, language.

My Peruvian coworker taught me the word "pattern" in Spanish today: "patron" (there's an accent over the O but I don't know how to put it there...)
The thing is, "patron" also means "landowner", or "boss", in Spanish. I just did a very half-assed search for the etimology of the word online, and came up with nothing. Still curious...
