Latin LOLCat: Doubt
Here is today's Latin LOLCat. This phrase is famously associated with Rene Descartes, and there is even a philosophical method named "Cartesian doubt" in his honor. The Latin word dubium has as its root the word duo, two. Something that is dubium, a matter of doubt, is about possibilities, the existence of two or more things that make claims to be true.
