Once, Twice, Thrice

Found AskOxford.com tonight.  We were wondering if there was anything after Thrice.  Apparently not.  This site answers this and lots of other fun questions like:
  • Apart from 'angry' and 'hungry', what other common English word ends in '-gry'?
  • Female cattle are cows, male cattle are bulls. But what is the word for an individual of arbitrary sex here?
  • What is the origin of the term 'dressed to the nines'?
  • and so on...
