My favorite word is "ergo".
For the longest time I thought it was Ere go.
franciscanorder was determined to prove me wrong, so he made a bet with me and said that if I was wrong, he would get to give me 5 zerbits (zerbit- one of my non-favorite words) and if I won... Well, I can't remember because, well, I lost.
He broke out the dictionary and well, you can't really deny the dictionary.
DAMN YOU WEBSTER!
However, it doesn't mean that I didn't deny "ergo" for the LONGEST time...
It wasn't until I saw "The Matrix Reloaded" with the subtitles on (I tend to do that when I want to understand what someone is saying- like subtitles are useful for people like the Merovigian and certainly the Architect who uses a lot of big words) that it IS spelled "ergo" because the Architect says "ergo" about 15 times in his little speech to Neo.
And no one argues with the Architect- even if he is a pretentious prick.
Ergo.... I go and leave you with that to contemplate over.
