Actually, it's because one of the most common types of early refrigerators was Frigidaire, which was shortened to "Fridge" because "Frig" just sounds dumb. I would put the "more you know" pic here, but i'm too lazy to go find it.

I think of this **** a lot. If I think about a word too much it seems like it doesn't make sense anymore and shouldn't be a word.

I've seen this before on another site, you might have subconsciously plagiarized, or maybe its a crazy case of parallel thinking.

Actually it used to be fourty, around the 1600's it changed to Forty. As to the Four not becoming for... well the logical reason would be so that we could difrentiate the number from the word when writing it. I mean imagine if it were changed "For score and seven years ago"
