Nigga, you flew in here with your "actually, 'ephemeral' was originally used in biolog to describe the lifespan of fruit flies" when that:

a)has nothing to do with how its properly used now, and

b)Is retarded because you are talking to a guy who has studied fruit flies and other organisms with shorter lifespans, and yet has never, ever, come across the term 'ephemeral' in regards to their lifespans. When I describe a short life span, I either c)define it by a length of time under a certain set of conditions or b)Simply say "short."

Very ironic. You not only misuse words, you misuse information. In what context the original meaning of 'Ephemeral' was conceived is completely unhelpful is *this* specific discourse.

You only brought that up to appear intelligent.

And it backfired, as usual.
