Интересно

Интересно, что у слова "проблема" и у слова "дьявол" этимологически общие корни:

Devil: Middle English devel, from Old English dEofol, from Late Latin diabolus, from Greek diabolos, literally, slanderer, from diaballein to throw across, slander, from dia- + ballein to throw.

Problem: Middle English probleme, from Middle French, from Latin problema, from Greek problEma, literally, obstacle, from proballein to throw forward, from pro- forward + ballein to throw.

Мне кажется, это не случайно.
