iheartscotch: Bslim: iheartscotch: Zul the Magnificent: iheartscotch: Huh; I'd have figured that, legally speaking, letting children leave the safety of the school to go outside had went the way of the dodo sometime in the late 90's or early 2000's. What if one of them were to get struck by lightning or trampled by a herd of rhinoceroses?


I was debating that very question myself. Is the plural for rhinoceros the same word, like sheep? Or is it Rhinoceri? Or is it Rhinoceroses? Or do we need to put some letter E's in there, like geese.

/ or should we just leave it at Rhino; the plural being Rhinos


Ok, I've got one for Rhinoceri and I've got one for Rhinoceros. Do I hear one for adding in some E's?

/ we're gonna need a shiat load of E's...

"Rhinoceros" is from the compound of Greek rhino ('nose') plus the Greek ceros ('horn'). The correct plural of rhinoceros would then be rhinoceroses, as the -i pluralization is Latin. However, rhinoceri seems to be becoming more and more acceptable.

Ditto octopus; again, it's from the Greek (oktṓpous, "eight-footed"). Thus, octopuses. Here again, however, the Latin -i is accepted.
While we're at it:

But let's face it: the need to run from gang violence in Chicago is *why* PE training is being reinstituted.

/lower birthrates, they can't afford to lose as many kids as they used to. Lose Congressional seats that way, and we can't have that. The bought rich need job security too.

ArmednHammered: So now they can run from the gang violence while trapped in a school yard. That's so much better.

Ducking and covering now will give them practice for when they drop out of school at 14.

/ remember, billy, serpentine... serpentine
