I always like the fact that raze and raise mean opposite things :D - comes of Endlish words coming from different languages I suppose
You can just post this in off topic - the spam heap is more intended for things some people might find controversial it's a sort of - if you go there and read it don' complain - the title is buried in history so don't ask me why.
If you can, avoid posting too much as images - we try to keep the forum screen reader friendly so that everyone can enjoy things :D

I was under the impression that the Controversial Topics thread was for controversial stuff, and this was for exactly this sort of fun silliness.

Since I know so many of us love baking, I thought I'd share this -most-amazing-food-blog-ever:

I love this woman's photography, also, I want to eat everything! She also has some great "food decorarting" tutorials. Seriously, I'm going to go home and bake bake bake.

I never thought about those two much. But I still recall reading in an intro to some book that "cleave" has two meanings that are opposites. As a teenager, this was an eye-opener to me about both the depth and ambiguity of language.

"Peruse" is another word with two meanings which are opposite.

I was taught that it meant to read quickly, to scan.

I notice Cambridge online dictionary gives this as a possible meaning. While Oxford online and a note in Free Dictionary dot com "reject" this definition. Ah well, I have never been much for prescriptivist grammar or definitions.
