The word "majority" is a silly word when it refers to a person's coming of age--the age of voting, pornography, beer, and other meaningless pleasures. When I was twelve, I said: I've reached the majority of my majority. Gimme some titty-mags and a Sam Adams.

True story.

Rhinoceroses, Rhinoceri, or Rhinocerontes? Discuss.

Also, Octopuses, Octopi, or Octopodes?

Side note: did you know that an octopus's slit-like pupils re-orient themselves with the motion of the octopus so that they are always horizontal? How creepy is that?
