Limbo
PJ
I'm searching for the origin of the word "Limbo". Being "in limbo" also the game, passing under the limbo stick. What do they have to do with each other and from what culture did they originate?

Nothing, it's mere coincidence. The state of indeterminacy comes from the Latin for "border," limbus, and the game/dance comes from the English, "limber."
