Doctor recommended for optimal cerebral hygiene 

Optimum now optimal

Tuesday, March 08, 2005



Here's a scary peek into my head.

It's been several weeks since we added the tagline under our title, "Doctor Recommended for optimum cerebral hygiene". You would think I'd be happy having come up with a clever bit of word play, something both thought provoking and funny.

But no! Instead, ever since, a mental debate has been running in the background, so to speak, using up valuable system resources. The problem: Is it "optimum" or "optimal"?

Dictionary.com has proven to be no help at all, and a brief Google search provided no clear answers.

In the end, I had to go with the conclusion that "optimal" simply sounds better.

It's not easy being me.
