image for Word 'Diaspora' No Longer Means Anything, Meaningless Study Finds

A mobile bunch, human beings have long moved around. Throughout most of time the term 'diaspora' referred to the dispersion of masses of people from their homelands into foreign lands. That era ended on Friday when the term went extinct.

"Everyone is from 'Somewhere Else' these days it seems", conjectured expert people-watcher and fannypack-wearer Justin Thyme. "Even the Gypsies are getting a little suspicious."

"All it takes is one person to leave the village, and before long others are trying it as well. I can't be certain... but I would say the majority of folks grew up at least one time zone away from where they live. And that's something worth noting."
