    Like flammable and inflammable. People used the wrong prefix to start with (‘in-’ means not, generally, as in indivisible vs. divisible) and eventually both came to mean something would burn. It never made any sense that something that literally meant “not burnable” was burnable and something that was “burnable” meant not burnable. So, the language altered over time.

    The root used to be enflame. It’s been spelled wrong for so long that the spellcheck doesn’t like it, but it doesn’t have the confusion element, my archaic way.

    I could care less, but not much.

    Oh man, he used my one big grammar pet peeve in the last panel. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I was taught that flammable and inflammable are synonyms.

    The fact that it took me twice as long to read your comment compared to the others kinda proves you wrong. ;-)

    I use my Merriam-Webster’s more than my Spellcheck. After last nights wonderful victory, spellcheck still doesn’t recognize Sox or Fenway. Recognizes Cubs Fan.

    See…no. The phrase is sarcastic. “I could care less…nah.” It’s been shortened and you’re supposed to understand the implication that I couldn’t care less.

    I hate when people use “disrespect” as a verb. IT’S A NOUN! You show disrespect, you do not “disprect someone” and can’t be “disrespected.” Adopting sloppy English simply because enough nimrods us it is dumb.

    Text speak has messed up everything dramatically, grammatically ..
