13 words that don't mean what they used to

I came across this fascinating article about words whose meaning had changed a lot since the old days.
We’re all aware of how terms such as “chip” and “gay” have evolved, but some of these ones might surprise you.
What do you think artificial, charisma, buxom, and myriad mean? And please note. It is never “a myriad of” It’s just “myriad”.
