the addition coincides with additional entries too - binge-watch being one - something which most of us who enjoyed breaking bad, certainly indulged in ;D

Does that mean the plural of "my house burnt down and I've lost all my vapes" is actually correct ? p

(this is so positive a thread, I thought I'd take a "contrarian" stance, just for the hell of it):

---

"(as noun vaping) there’s concern that young people may take up vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking"

---> yeah, we needed to insert that example of conjugating the verb 'to vape', because we all know it is preferable that our children rather just smoke, and face almost certain chances of a horrible death, rather than try any less-harmful alternative recreational activity, whose  effects are claimed to be UNKNOWN.

lol - it certainly is an unusual choice they used ... ;D

tame in comparison to how i might personally describe some of them, i particularly like how they class vapers as derivatives ;) - lol
