: That's actually a far more appropriate nickname.
I know this is completely off topic... but saying its literally the opposite of what it means got my attention
verb (used with object), dec·i·mat·ed, dec·i·mat·ing.
to destroy a great number or proportion of: The population was decimated by a plague.
to select by lot and kill every tenth person of.
Obsolete . to take a tenth of or from.
Umm, doesn't the first definition for 'decimate' kinda make his nickname reasonable? Just change up the example sentence in the definition, "The island was decimated by a forerunner weapon.", maybe I'm just failing to understand why it's used incorrectly, if that be so, mind elaborating as to why it's wrong?
