7 Words That Will Make You Go "HUH?!"
You all know how much I love to hand out Pop Quizzes on Vingle. Well, you won't believe what I learned from Readers Digest! Words that don't actually mean what we all think!
Keep reading...
People think it means: Energized.
But it really means: Weakened.
People think it means: A fun, trivial fact.
But it really means: A fun, FALSE fact.
People think it mean: Not flammable.
But it really means: Totally super flammable.
People think it means: Regardless.
But it really means: With regard, or nothing at all.
People think it means: Undisturbed.
But it really means: Utterly baffled.
People think it means: Someone who has broken the law.
But it really means: A person excluded from protection of the law.
People think it means: To skim.
But it really means: To thoroughly examine something point by point.

Did you all know this?!

I actually knew the 'irregardless' one. I used it ONCE, a long time ago, and was educated on the spot by someone who was a stickler about using your words correctly. OUCH! Well, I don't say that word anymore!
