    Not so much a word as a meaningless expression (IMO!)

    Last night on TV, I heard a seemingly intelligent person claiming (IIRC) that something was "nine times cheaper" than something else. What the Hell does that mean?

    Something can be nine times more expensive than something else, and something can be a ninth the price of something else, but something cannot be "nine times" cheaper than something else. .

    Rant over.

    I find the whole business of religion profoundly interesting. But it does mystify me that otherwise intelligent people take it seriously. D Adams

    "Pound" used a plural.

    'Hubby' and when people say 'little man' when talking about their son, those are two that make me cringe.
