"pecs," unless someone can find another definition of it, is the plural of the abbreviation for "pectoral," and since abbreviations aren't allowed, "pecs" shouldn't be allowed.

At least, that's my $.02.

"Pec" is a slang or informal version of "pectoral" (depending on which dictionary you use) and is also listed in both Stedman's and the Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionaries. It's a shortened form of the word, but definitely not an abbreviation. (I actually looked this up before posting "pecs", believe it or not [Wink] ). So...judgment call anyone?

I thought as well that Pecs was an abbr. However, abbreviations in dictionaries are followed by peroids. Pecs is not, and so is slang and not an abbr. It is a valid word. I however wonder where dictionary writers draw the line between something like this being slang and being an abbr.

pets > pens

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Since I started the game, I guess I should make a ruling on pecs. Yes it is allowed. Pec is not an abbreviation it is slang.

penk -> pink

And thus, the mark of the beast is "pink" ... Not entirely unexpected I suppose.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
