It's my reaction as opposed to the reaction of Chimpur.

I don't mean to be irreverent to this disaster, it's just my brains first thought when I read or hear the phrase. Again I apologize for the derailment.
It's even worse for me, I've been totally corrupted by the internet.

Interesting perspective, rgray. I personally would go with "humanity" as in "oh, the people", in that I use the term "inhumanity" in a context that refers to a harsh injustice done by someone to another person (or a group of people undertaking inhumane acts against other people). Still, I see your point. Paix, mon ami.

Is it just me or did this exact thread appear before? Every post I read here feels like I have read them before, including "Oh the huge Manatee"!

Or is it just Deja vu?

Cheers
