meniscus \mə-ˈnis-kəs\ noun: 1. a crescent or crescent-shaped body, 2. a concavo-convex lens, 3. the curved upper surface of a column of liquid, 4. a fibrous cartilage within a joint especially of the knee

Etymology: New Latin, from Greek mēniskos, from diminutive of mēnē moon, crescent

What’s more terrifying: a vicious meniscus or a viscous meniscus?
