  1. Trivia of the day: most people think that the name ping-pong is an English word. But no! It is derived from ‘ping pang qiu’ in Mandarin Chinese (same pronunciation) which translates literally to “ping pong ball.” (info stolen from some website)

      1. Actually that was fake news. Further investigation indicates the name is indeed English and it was the Chinese who stole it and transliterated the sounds into Mandarin, not the other way around. Sly Chinese. The name comes from the sound of the ball hitting the paddle.
