OED Birthday Word Generator: Which Words Originated in Your Birth Year?

This is a really fun little widget! Via IKM. My birthday word is “gazillion,” as in, “I have spent a gazillion hours winding cassette tape back into cassettes with a pencil eraser.” But it’s fun to just play around with the thing and see which words originated later or earlier than I would have guessed–”celebutante” and “babysitter” are both from the 1930s, for example.
