I think virtual work is what my day has been like.  I worked all day and
have virtually nothing to show for it!

Okay, I learned about virtual work back in school before desktop FEA
programs became a commodity.  It is a shortcut way of solving
indeterminate analysis problems.  I have virtually done no virtual
analysis in the last 15 virtual years or so.
