OK, quickly: how many words can you think of which rhyme with “ritual?” Come on, now, you can do it.  No… “mutual” won’t work.  Nor will eventual, casual, perpetual, factual, actual, conceptual, pansexual or consensual.  All of those are ineffectual, thank you very much; though a consensual pansexual does sound intriguing.
