Trivia:  When I want to torment people with hard-to-spell words I give
them "desiccate."  The correct spelling looks wrong and is
counterintuitive, but it derives from the latin "siccus", which I think
means "dry."  Even the high-school spelling champ from Connecticut flubbed
this one when he was a grad student in my lab!
