Augh. It's that time again for me to become all spastic and anally-retentive about proper grammar. This one little word blunder always manages to boil my blood. Why is it that people simply refuse to be consistent? augh!

I put virii in the same category as boxen and pr0n.

I call that category "geeks spell in mysterious ways".

Virii is the proper word. Only schmucks would say viruses.

Hmm, isn't "schmuck" a Jewish word?
You be Jewish? If so, greetings from Israel. ;)

Cactus = Cacti (plural)

Virus = Viri(i)
