Virtual reality

Via telephone interview from the United States — which of the 50 states isn't specifiec — Danny Williams says, of his still-secret, never-to-be-released, Hebron "deal":
...I'm virtually assured that the Hebron project will happen.


Interesting choice of adverb.

Chosen for the same lawyerly and linguistic reasons that cosmetics companies say "lines virtually disappear", and "liver spots are virtually invisible"; or that dubious health supplements claim that bellies and flab disappear virtually overnight.
