Après le saut

After the jump: you’ve seen it all over, you sort of know what it means. What you may not know, which I now find myself disappointed to know, is that ‘After the jump‘ is not a Battlestar Galactica reference.

It’s a holdover from newspaper lingo. The ‘jump’ in a newspaper article is the point where the article is interrupted on one page and continued at that point on another page, with a notation of where to go to continue the article.

That is lame.
