After reading the word “pernicious” a few times in a row, I looked it up. What a tepid sounding word, given its definition

@matt I do love saying “pernicious anemia”. It sounds like something a genteel 19th century farmer would say that claimed his 3rd, 5th and 11th child.

@Ted That was a bad winter, lost Aloysius, Robert, and Helen to the pernicious anemia

@Ted “I remember it well, although I only lost two children that year,” another farmer might reply
