Brilliant!
So virtually indistructable means literally almost indistructable.
I love English.
But it does suffer as a means of communication.
On the other hand, what fun is it if there isn't enough ambiguity to play with??
The French go to great extreemes to keep their language pure, but I do not think that appropriate.
But at it's core - all communication worth having is art and thus must be beautiful, whimsical, inventive, sometimes informitave, and yes - ambiguous in measure.
