Topic: Phrases you wish people would get right
Posted: 23 Aug 2011 13:40

"I could care less" (Are you sure you could not care less?)

"A flag at half mast" (It's probably at half staff to get technical)

"Orientated" (They mean oriented)

"Bounced off of...." (No, it bounced off)

"Can I axe you a question" (A question such as "How do you pronounce 'ask'?)

Continually and continuously used to mean two different things, they don't any more.

etc.

Half Mast is correct and comes from the Navy about the colors at half mast.



Half mast is correct. If it's on a mast. Technically, on a flag pole (on the ground), it is at half staff.

What did they mean before? I'm curious.
Continuous meant a steady stream, as in a stream 'without cessation'. Continual was a repetitive motion, like a drip.

Now they are used interchangeably.

Topic: Name some of the best pranks you have pulled or took part in
Posted: 20 Aug 2011 18:07

In university I took a piece of chalk, drilled the end out with a dental drill and inserted a couple of match heads. I put tape on the other end and then removed all the other chalk.

The professor came in, wrote the title of the lesson and underlined with a bit of a flourish. Just as he finished underlining the match heads flared up and he was standing there with a piece of flaming chalk for 15 seconds. It was an all time classic engineering moment.

Pretty sure he peed himself a bit.
