Latin LOLCat: Easy
Here is today's Latin LOLCat: The Latin word facilis which you see here gives us the English word "facile" and "facility" and "faculty" - it's ultimately related to "doing" things (Latin facere). So the next time you think about the "faculty" of a school, just think of it as a hotbed of "activity" - according to the Latin, anyway, that is what it should be!
