that chat about disk/disc greek origins reminds

me of a Captain I sailed with who noticed the Distress Flares were out of date. He cabled the Company requesting new "fireworks".

He got a terse message back saying the correct term is Pyrotechnics not fireworks.

His reply was something like -
"Pyro is Greek for fire and Technic is Greek for work and if I wanted to work on a Greek Ship, I would."

Just thought I'd mention this as the FE may have some more paint he can watch drying.
