But it can also apply to collections, such as troops which consist of individuals. The question becomes whether a backyard is such a collection and if so, of what? Now some backyards are measured in the square foot, so if the squirrels managed to take one in ten of the square feet and kill it, the backyard has been decimated.

That square foot is dead.

I'm currently waging a war on squirrels, they're decimating the back yard and when i try to scare them they sometimes don't even care.



Decimating is to kill every tenth one. Unless you have ten yards, it's impossible to decimate them.


Coincidentally, last night I started reading one of the books you recommended, and in it the verb "to decimate' is used in the same manner I used it here.

  1. It applies to public land only
  2. It requires maintaining the land for 5 years (The average life span of grey squirrels is extremely brief -- generally only between 11 and 12 months, according to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.)
  3. They have to fill out the form, which is not written in squirrel.

I know. You're not uniquely guilty in this respect. This particular linguistic offense is committed by millions of people, including historians who should know better.

Actually, all squirrels qualify for Section 8 housing due to their large family size and zero income levels. :twisted:

The Section 8 Housing Program, also called the Housing Choice Voucher Program, is a federally funded government assistance program intended to help low- and moderate-income families in the United States find a rental home. Regarding what qualifies you for Section 8 housing, the most important eligibility requirement for the program is the family’s gross annual income, but many other factors also contribute to the final decision. As the program is one of the most popular and sought-after in the country, many states have decided to close their waiting lists and no longer receive applications. Participants in the Section 8 Program must also continue to meet the eligibility requirements in order to keep receiving assistance. In some instances, the program requirements include additional special programs in which families must be included to achieve financial independence and reach their career or educational goals.


In other words if they are caught teasing the chipmunks they can loose their housing. :mrgreen:

To be fair, words do change meaning. Decimation originated from Latin, and referred to the old punishment. Now it means something else. I kinda like being pedantic, but this is one of those occasions where it hinders more than it helps.

I know that "awful" was kind of a compliment in the past, and that "idiot" derives from Greek ideas of individuals who don't participate in politics.
