beware of windfallen apples and of men whose eyebrows meet

It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is no subject so arcane and obscure that there won't be a) a word for it and b) a website dedicated to it. For instance - having eyebrows that meet in the middle. Popularly known as a "monobrow" or a "unibrow", the correct word is apparently synophrys. And the website celebrating all things monobrowular, or synophrystical if you will, is here. A gallery is available; if you want a couple of magnificent specimens to start you off try this one and this one.

Not all men whose eyebrows meet in the middle are werewolves, of course. But some of them are.
