    actually decimate means break into ten pieces, so it's quite appropriate. anon@10.0, you're an idiot.

    To Anon@12:42 & Anon@10:07,

    You both are wrong, because the word in question means both to destroy completely or to reduce/kill/destroy 10%.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimation_(Roman_army)

    Removal of a tenth – a form of discipline used by the Roman Army as early as 471 BCE. But I first read about it in classical scholar Steven Saylor's Gordianus the Finder detective series (set in the times of Cesar)

    From the wiki page:

    Current usage of the word
    In current English use, the word decimation is often used to refer to an extreme reduction in the number of a population or force, usually greater than the one tenth implied by the "deci" root, and in contrast to the leniency suggested by the Roman practice.[10] While growing, this usage is widely though still not universally accepted. Some other uses of the word are generally regarded as incorrect (complete destruction, harming an indivisible, etc.)[11][12][13]

    In Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History, Stephen Jay Gould uses "decimate" to indicate the taking of nine in ten, noting that the Oxford English Dictionary supports the "pedigree" of this "rare" meaning.[14][15]
