On a slightly more nerdy subject, think about the English language and the words species... i before e except after c ... bah, good thing for spell checkers.

the wikipedia article on i before e was quite interesting. as a chemist i hadn't realized i had ceased to really think about that rule ever applying but the article points to why.

science. of all the nerdy words, why not cite SCIENCE as the example!

I like bob cunninghams piece on i before e, especially his conclusion:

"Instead of trying to defend the 'rule' or 'guideline', "'i' before 'e' except after 'c'", why don't we all just agree that it is dumb and useless, and be content just to laugh at it?"
