These 9 Words Don't Mean What You Think They Mean

Notorious used to mean famous.Notorious means famous in a bad way. Never use notorious to describe someone who is famous for acceptable reasons. Lance Armstrong was a famous bicyclist who became notorious for his lies about doping. While I’m on the subject: Notorious is not as evil or horrible as infamous. Armstrong is notorious. Hitler, Mao, and Stalin were infamous.

I might start the week by banning several of you. And by banning, I mean to the eternal fires of hell.

No, really. Evil Ernie has a pad there. Really nice pool and there is a sports bar within walking distance that shows all the New Jersey Devils games.
