"Life is a great adventure, or nothing"

Not to be confused with “aquarius”, as my esteemed coworker did.  And, after much debate, pronounced with a long-voweled ‘a’.

Aqueous |ˈākwēəs, ˈak-|  (Adjective)

of or containing water, typically as a solvent or medium: an aqueous solution of potassium permanganate.

• like water; watery: a great hall of aqueous marble.

ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: from medieval Latin aqueus, from Latin aqua ‘water.’

Credit for all Word of the Week definitions goes to the built-in dictionary on my Macbook.  Dictionary, you’re my friend.
