    Geniuses
    or
    Geniusi?

    And if it's geniuses (which I suspect it is because nothing in this world makes any sense) then why?



    Also just a side note really:

    I know there are cases where it does apply, but the "I before E except after C" rule doesn't seem to apply all that often. What I mean is, after a "c" in a word, it's usually still I before E.

    Example:
    Science
    (I would have more but I have to leave right now)



    (Also I know the "and when sounding like "A" as in "neighbor" and "weigh"" part, just for your information)
