In UNIX-land, the head command prints the first several lines of a file (10 by default). I needed to know the layout of a file so I could create a similar one, so I ran
head myfile
and then ran my text editor to create my other file. By the time I needed the information, I'd forgotten what I saw, so I ran the command again:
!head

My inner monologue typically narrates my UNIX activities. In this instance, it said "bang head." It's been that kind of a day.
