Using more Latin in posts

I'm going to start using more Latin in my writing and everyday speech. It seems so useful, for example arguendo or, "for the sake of argument." Wouldn't that make a meeting more exciting, more concise? I'll no longer have to trip my tongue over such expressions as, "Assuming, for the sake of argument, that we did built this web application in twenty minutes..." Now I can say, "Assuming arguendo that we did..." See how much nicer it is? You should try it too. And don't worry, I don't think it will make us seem haughty or pretentious, it's not like it's French or something!
