Is it frig or fridge?
A: Although most dictionaries list “fridge” as the only spelling for this abbreviated version of “refrigerator,” a few do indeed include the “d”-less version “frig” as a variant spelling.
And “frigging” rhymes with “digging,” though it's often spelled and pronounced friggin'. The OED describes “fridge” as a colloquial abbreviation for “refrigerator,” and suggests that the “frig” spelling may have been influenced by the brand name “Frigidaire” (a play on “frigid air”).
- If healthcare providers find the stomach cancer in early stages when the cancer is still only in the stomach, the five-year survival rate is about 65%. If they find the stomach cancer when it's spread to areas near your stomach or to nearby lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is about 30%.
- Because stage IV stomach cancer has spread to distant organs, a cure is usually not possible. But treatment can often help keep the cancer under control and help relieve symptoms.
- Stomach pain: Abdominal discomfort or pain in the abdomen above the navel could be a symptom of stomach cancer. Also, swelling or fluid build-up in the abdomen may also be caused by stomach cancer. Feeling full: Many stomach cancer patients experience a sense of "fullness" in the upper abdomen after eating small meals.
Refrigerator can freeze water but fridge cannot. Fridge is used to keep eatable items whereas refrigerator is used for making ice keeping icecreams and other materials which need less temperature. A fridge is complete and has refrigerator in it.

- Keep the refrigerator temperature at or below 40° F (4° C). The freezer temperature should be 0° F (-18° C). Check temperatures periodically. Appliance thermometers are the best way of knowing these temperatures and are generally inexpensive.
- Con: They're more expensive. In the Goldilocks story of refrigerators, regular-depth, freestanding fridges are the least expensive, and built-ins are the most expensive, with counter-depth fridges coming in somewhere in between. They typical start around $1000 and go up from there.
But the word refrigerator is much older; it dates to the early 1600s, and refrigerate, from the Latin verb refrigerare and ultimately from the adjective frigus, meaning "cold," dates to the preceding century. Frigus also gave us our adjective frigid.
- The ideal refrigerator temperature is 35° F (1.6° C). You're not hugging the danger zone like you would be at 40° F (4.4° C), and you're distancing yourself sufficiently from 32° F (0° C) that you don't freeze half the stuff in your refrigerator.
- When the hot gas in the coils meets the cooler air temperature of the kitchen, it becomes a liquid. Now in liquid form at high pressure, the refrigerant cools down as it flows into the coils inside the freezer and the fridge. 4. The refrigerant absorbs the heat inside the fridge, cooling down the air.
- Refrigerator Disposal Releases Ozone-Depleting Chemicals. Summary: Shredded foam insulation from junked refrigerators is releasing substantial amounts of ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, into the earth's atmosphere — and the more finely shredded the foam, the faster the release, a Danish researcher reports
