Cars that are out of control do not careen all over the road ,they career all over the road.
Careening was beaching a ship on its side in times past so that the crew could remove marine growth from the hull which slowed the ship down.
People are not pressurised into doing things ,they are pressured into doing things .
Pressurising is a specific term for filling a closed container with gas at a certain pressure.
Similar language mangling ,burgularising a property when in fact you burgle a property (not you personally of course )
I suspect that when language errors become widespread enough then they cease being errors.
And now my opinions on very serious subjects.
Wooden stakes do not kill vampires,they are there to pin them to the ground and stop them getting up and walking around.
Staking an undead whos already walking around will just tickle them.
Also vampires dont fly its just a bit of confusion with the bats of the same name.
Holding a horseshoe or piece of scrap iron will not keep witches or Elves away from you .
If you take the sentence E’s and W’s dont like cold iron and update it to “cold steel” it gives a whole new meaning to the sentence.
Zombie plague?Wear chain mail,steel helmet and toughened clear visor ,carry a weapon and then go out and hunt the bastards down.
Aussies call Brits Pommies because the exiled convicts apparently had Prisoner of Her Majesty on their uniforms,thats never sounded right to me .
Read somewhere recently that its more likely to be rhyming slang ,Pomegranets/emigrants.
Which does sound more likelyto me.
