Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

I claim being pressured into it by other people and subsequently have no personal responsibility.

I traced it back. Arx is the source of our grammatical woe. Let's get 'im, fellas!

AFAIK both are equally valid, although 'virii' is a Latinism.

We are doomed. It's just that whatever is going to kill us all just happens to be, from a scientific standpoint, pretty frickin' awesome.

So while looking for something decent to get Arx with, I stumbled across this.

Pfft.

EDIT: Okay Here's what I was after. It looks menacing enough.

"Virii"? I have never seen it used before. After a brief search, it is described as being based on a misunderstanding of Latin. Wikitionary claims that there is no evidence for the word "virii" in Latin, either.

I think the plural for "virus" is "infection".

You could have a bacterial infection though.

Had dinner from a new fish & chip place down the road.

Thickest fish I've ever had. Easily two-to-three times the width of other fish places in the area.

Fish place we go to, when you order a large fish, does it LARGE.

I'm no good with measurements, however, so I can't tell you the size. Easily over a foot long and about half a foot wide at its widest? Pretty thick, too.

What type of fish was it?

Normally we just get haddock, which comes in small square slices. Usually only a few inches long, and not very thick at all. Usually pretty greasy, too.

Virus might go under the definition of life because they evolve, but that has implications regarding artificlal "life". And also what we're looking for when we call something alive, what does that mean, what does it change for something to be life/not-life? Great, you labeled it as life/not-life, what does that get you?

Apparently my little comment about viruses not being alive has turned into a multipage discussion that has accomplished nothing except take up space. Welp, I feel accomplished.
