How can sixteen years of school produce people not knowing the difference between alumni(plural) and alumnus(singular)? Won't even attempt the masculine/feminine discussion.

Sorry. This is my pet peeve of the day.

I prefer to drink out of a bottle but Alumnus is pretty good too.

Boy, bring up something important and they scatter like roaches when the light comes on. Thanks for the replies boys, it's a good thing I didn't have to converse tonight with a woman on a PMS trip.
