Can we stop with the "Sarin" sh*t

"ree," etc are valid nicknames - the name of a horrible chemical weapon "sarin" is not.

Re: Can we stop with the "Sarin" sh*t

Well, I've checked Wikipedia, and it says this about exposure to sarin: "Ultimately, the victim becomes comatose and suffocates in a series of convulsive spasms".
So, you could paraphrase that and say that sarin makes you choke to death. And that's exactly what Serena does to her opponents, hence the nickname: Sarin.

Opinions
You know what inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan has to say about them...

Re: Can we stop with the "Sarin" sh*t

The best nickname was the one Richard Williams came up with for Safina... which I can't remember right now just that it was really funny.
