Woman: I'm sorry, but grandpa had to put the Internet out of its misery now that "Facebook" is being used as a verb... Life's hard lesson in grammar...
fbmce - Virgin Vinyl is vinyl that is free of recycled material. It is/was common practice to grind up old records and add that to the pressing compound. I own some albums that have bits of ground-up labels in them. Obviously, it affects the sound.
With regard to turning nouns into verbs, it is always jarring the first time you hear one. I still cringe at “growing” a business, but I’ll bet that there was a time when no one would have said “I’m going to hammer a few nails” or “carpet a room.”
