Considering that inappropriate mean not appropriate, inaudible mean not audible, why does inflammable mean flammable?  Considering the importance of knowing if something is flammable or not, it just doesn't strike me as a very good word.

I had to look these words up in the dictionary, inflammable means easy to burn or set fire to, comes from the word inflame, as in "his speech would inflame the crowd to violence". Over time it was changed to flammable when applied to materials because there was a fear that people would take inflammable to mean noncombustible. I've also been told by one of my friends that flammable means a substance is easy to ignite while inflammable means it can self ignite as in spontaneous combustion. Karma to Jack for making me learn something.

Why is it some people act like ghetto-hardened thugs until you step on their shoes, and then they whine like little girls about an unnoticeable amount of dirt on their white shoes.  Seriously, that's why I don't f**king buy white.

That reminds me of this one Simpsons episode, the hospital was burning down and the firefighters are talking to Dr. Nick.

Dr. Nick- Inflammable means flammable?  What a country!

Yeah, At my school once I was walking near the wall so I wouldn't run into anyone, then this one kid, (note: White and from the suburbs , but he likes rap music which makes him "gangsta", moron.) on purpose makes it so I pretty much need to walk on his $400 shoes, (second note: honestly, who neads $400 shoes, $40 on sale at Kohls, or J C Penny, and I am stylin')  then the dumba$$ says, "Watch the shoes."  I almost punched someone.  Dumba$$. Hatred

No kidding!  I had a similar experience at a crowded bar.  I didn't even feel anything under my feet and some asshat says, "Step on my shoes again, you're not gonna like what I do to your leather jacket." 

Oh no.  Because I stepped on your sh***y shoes.  Like it doesn't wipe off.

I once drove from Hazard, Ky to Apache Junction, AZ during mid-July. Somewhere in the middle of Texas the air conditioner in the car gave out. I figured the sensible solution would be to roll down the windows and shed my clothes (you can go for miles on I-40 and never see another car). Unfortunately, the next day I had the sunburn of a lifetime.... Buggedout

How many more prints of Jy Is My Liefling (You Are My Love) do I have to go through before I can say: "Right, every film is prepared for next week's film festival!"  Question Question

While in Murray, KY today, I drove out of my way to go to office max because they had a sale of blank CD-Rs (100 for ten dollars). When I got there, the clerk informed that they had been out for three days! I hate it when i go to buy something on sale only to come up with "Sorry, we've ran out of stock in that paticular item"! Atleast he did offer to give me a raincheck; but seeing as I only make it to Murray once every three months it would have been a waste of time. He also told me that Jackson,Tn had them in stock, like i'm going to drive a seventy miles or so to pick up blank CD-Rs when gas is four dollars a gallon....

Today was the first day in over a week that I saw blue sky. The hundreds of wild fires in the area had blanketed the entire valley with thick smoke. It was so thick at times, I could barely see the buildings downtown across the river. I half expected Hedorah to come flying out of the choking haze.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Have you ever noticed how the doctine of respondeat superior generally makes employers vicariously liable for their employees' negligent torts, but not for their intentional torts?  What's with that?  And don't get me started on res ipsa loquitor.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
