Does the answer for Spermaceti have to be so specific? Genuine question. I guessed at a less specific answer (I don't want to give it away for people who read the comments first) and obviosuly didn't get it correct.

I would say absolutely. There are lots of varieties of that animal, but only one has spermaceti. There's even a famous book about it.

"Spermaceti (from Greek sperma meaning "seed", and ceti, the genitive form of "whale") is a waxy substance found in the head cavities of the sperm whale (and, in smaller quantities, in the oils of other whales). Spermaceti is created in the spermaceti organ inside the whale's head." per wikipedia

I find that question pretty obvious. Cetus/ceti is latin for whale (thus the cetaceans), so spermaceti = sperm whale...

No need to be offensive. Especially as I never studied any latin, dude. I'm just interested in etymology, which is not only for "geniuses".

So Trump being the living embodiment of the antithesis of genius... that makes him 1% uninspired, and 99% lazy and entitled?

Oh, didn't you know he's a very stable genius? Anyway, I wouldn't say he's uninspired, it's just that his inspiration comes from the wrong places, same goes for lazy. I would add a big portion of narcissism to the mix though, as well as a lack of common sense.

So an "antithesis of genius" built a 9 billion dollar worldwide empire with global name recognition, won the Presidency of the United States while using half the budget of his opponent, skyrocketed the US GDP to 4% within his first year in office, added over 5,000 points to the Dow, defeated ISIS, repatriated trillions of dollars back to the US, and brought unemployment to its lowest levels in decades?

That seems like an odd definition for "antithesis of genius"
