Life just goes on as usual… Work, eat, bike, sleep, repeat! But hey I am getting a hang of doing fun things at work and making great changes in my team’s codebase! I learned quite a few new testing principles today so that’s fun!

Looking at the ending, “er,” and the root of the word, “catcher,” this word is also a noun. But what exactly would splitting the word into its parts cow-catcher mean? I’m assuming it doesn’t literally mean:
Some type of fence to keep the cows from leaving the farm.
Definition and Pronunciation
noun | KOW-ketch-er
- an inclined frame on the front of a railroad locomotive for throwing obstacles off the track
I would use the word in a sentence as follows:
Seconds later, the train and the stuck car crossed path, with the cowcatcher throwing the car meters high up in the air.
