    A superacid is more acidic than the "conventional" very strong acids like sulphuric acid or perchloric acid. Those act as bases to the superacids. You even need another scale than the pH to express the acidity.

    Remember, birth is a terminal disease.

    There seems to be a lot of folks dying who haven't died before.
