Did the house burn UP or burn DOWN? Is the light blinking OFF & ON or ON and OFF?

The English can be very confusing.

Vic, if you turn the air conditioning down, aren't you really turning it up?

Oh, yes. We ALWAYS go round and round about that one when she says to turn it down. Confusion reigns!

When Garmin introduced the Aera family, at least half of their own documents and press releases spelled it 'Area'.

Whoops!

Your not going to draw me into this argument two. Their are rules about witch words are right to use they're.

Seriously, I have a customer who just retired as an English instructor at Long Beach City College. Her license plate is "THERAR2" When I asked her about the meaning, she said it reflects a pet peeve where people use the the word "there" followed by "is", like "there is instructions included". I will forgot that license plate. ;-)

And why do we need hot water heaters?

I was reading about the derivation of gauge. Seems to have been the word for some sort of dip stick.
