Vector, noun: A reformed rogue of the microscopic world, once specialising in chaos and disease, now intriguingly repurposed as a genetic mailman. This virus, adept in the art of cellular infiltration, is now employed to deliver therapeutic genes with the precision of a seasoned spy exchanging top-secret information, showcasing nature’s own version of turning a villain into a hero.

These definitions are inspired by Jason Zweig’s The Devil’s Financial Dictionary, so don’t take them literally. They are meant to amuse and educate.
