"A" Worthy Word

I once had an English instructor in college tell me that if I used the following word in a paper, I would receive an automatic "A." Alas, his promise was in jest, but the word is a worthy addition to anyone's vocabulary. Meet inescapable's sinister twin:

INELUCTABLE. The word means "incapable of being evaded."

Example: My ineluctable fate is to work on reading protocols and lesson plans till the wee hours of the morning. Somehow, I think even drudgery sounds more noble when it is ineluctable!
