Yeah, but the apostrophe was there so I should have gotten it. :P As for its applying moreso to men, agathos is more of "good and useful" whereas kalos is "good/beautiful/noble"... the Greeks were fantastic at wordplay  ;D... unless you meant how it's in the masculine gender but that is purely a matter of morphology :)

Kalos and kakos confused me so terribly at first. XP My professor has horrible handwriting and quite often I have no idea which he means. ;P
