If you love it in part because of the soundtrack, I strongly recommend samurai champloo, it's about samurai (surprising, I know) with a hip hop soundtrack, and some pretty cool characters

It's called an auto-antonym or a contronym. It is where a word can be defined as one thing and also its complete opposite. More auto-antonyms are:

Sanction.
Oversight.
Dust.
Seed.
Stone.
Trim.
Cleave.
Fast
Off
Weather.
Screen
Help

So, how do you like your job at Starbucks?
User avatar #30 - godtherapist (08/18/2014) [-]
I'm Canadian so it would have been more apt to say "How do you like your job at Tim Hortons" but that also would have been inaccurate. I work at a computer repair shop.
#26 - anonymous (08/18/2014) [-]
How the absolute fuck do those words mean two things that contradict each other? If you're referring to some really bizarre definitions that next to no one is aware of, then you've basically proven that auto-antonyms are not products of language evolving, and therefore shouldn't be used to defend the misuse of "literally".

To dust something never means to apply dust to something, same with seeding. It would only be inside terminology in different professions that use the words like this.

But, seriously, does "stone", I assume as a verb, ever mean the opposite? To stone someone, you have to throw stones at them...does it also mean to remove stones from them? Does trim ever mean to...add a bit to something? Does cleave mean to merge two things together? Does anyone say "I turned the light off so now I can see better in the dark"? What's the opposite definition of weather? When the sky is sucking up water drops from the ground?
User avatar #27 - godtherapist (08/18/2014) [-]
To Dust can mean to remove dust from an object or To Dust can mean to add a fine layer. Like when you dust a donut with sugar.

To Seed can mean to put seeds in (the ground) or To Seed can mean to remove seeds (from a tomato).

These are not "inside terminology" they are common everyday usages. You just have the linguistic capabilities of a Chimp.

#32 - anonymous (08/18/2014) [-]
Dusting means to remove DUST, and otherwise to coat something with something else. It would be an auto-antonym if the definitions contradicted each other, which they don't. You would never dust something WITH dust.

Also, I think you'll find it's much more common to say "deseed" when you're removing the seeds from something. Even so, the opposite of planting seeds would be to remove the seeds from the ground. The alternative definition isn't the opposite of the other.

However, with the word literally, you are using a word which has the very purpose of differentiating between metaphors/hyperbole and reality, to express hyperbole... THAT is nothing but confusing and does not promote any kind of evolution of language.
User avatar #21 - antiponiesuser (08/18/2014) [-]
but not literally.

dont fucking use literally except if you are going to really do it.

thats chapter 1 in how not to be a faggot.
#12 - anonymous (08/18/2014) [-]
Some words are designed to be that way, 'literally' was not, as that would defeat its entire purpose which is to differentiate between something that is strictly literal or figurative. Note that the definition you placed in bold is both listed under 'informal' and begins with "used for". This means that people use it that way, not that that is its actual meaning.

Language evolves over time.
#23 - anonymous (08/18/2014) [-]
Yeah, which is why "your" and "you're" should be considered the same word, right? "Nigger" should be the new word for black people, and the number 1337 should be a legitimate word synonymous with "elite". After all, a huge amount of people use the words like this, so it's a natural evolution of language.

No? Then shut the fuck up and stop trying to push for a word which use is expressively to differentiate between metaphors/hyperbole and actuality, to be commonly used as hyperbole. It's fucking retarded and creates confusing and not to mention annoying situations.

The thing about evolution of language is that up until now, it has happened very slowly. Due to a tonne more international communication and communication in general (especially in text form,) language has been changing far quicker. We NEED rules to keep language from being completely arbitrary, now more than ever. Shit head teenage girls like your lot are dragging language down, don't kid yourselves.
#34 - asasinmonkey (08/19/2014) [-]
Good god man. I'm not necessarily defending the usage just pointing out that language is not some static thing. Go smoke a joint and try to calm the fuck down. Also, unless somehow I've been subjected to a sex change operation and change of birth day without my knowledge, I am neither teenage or a girl. (Perish the thought. I would be one fuck all ugly woman.)

Also just in case your wondering. Insults do not strengthen your argument in any way. You fucking slob ass eurofag.
#31 - ainise (08/18/2014) [-]
Nigger's not a new word for black people, it's an old one, a very old one. Like..1700s kind of old. It was a neutral term for someone of color. We obviously don't use it like that today, but it doesn't really change the fact that it's not new. 1337 are numbers, not a word. It wouldn't likely ever become part of English unless if we were to include all of "leet speech" as a language. Not really comparable.

You can see quite a few issues with the English language if you delve deep enough. These all originate from something stupid becoming popular enough to eventually be accepted by everyone. The entire group of words that are Contranyms are a great example of this.

If we were in the 1500s and enough people agreed that "you're" and "your" are similar enough, we would end up dropping the " ' " and "e" and just use "your" for everything. There are examples of this in the English language. It probably won't happen again, but it has in the past and definitely can again.

are literally implying that the literal literalness of "literally" isn't as literally literal as it actually is.
User avatar #33 - syfygeek (08/18/2014) [-]
apparently, the dictionary was changed recently or something because i swear you weren't always allowed to say literally for emphasis.

mostly because tumblr
User avatar #20 - dancingdoggy (08/18/2014) [-]
I'm with you on hating the fact that "literally" is changing its definition.

But I think in this case, figuratively wouldn't work. He's saying that how would, in fact, ghost out of his grave and set everyone on fire because he would be that angry. Literally works here, even if it won't happen. I think literally with future tense is more flexible.

ie: This paper will take me literally 10 hours to finish.
-paper only takes 6 hours to finish.

Even though it wasn't true, it was an estimate of what was going to happen.
