agreed. OP you remind me of my twelve year old brother who wanted to see if our vacuum could suck up water. He then tried it on water he had run into the sink and broke the vacuum. In other words, you're an idiot.

inflammable= easily set on fire (used figuratively or in nontechnical contexts) flammable= easily set of fire NONflammable= NOT catching fire easily Therefore, YDI for being stupid.

Hahah I once heard of a court case where a girl's violin instructor told her not to unloosen her strings or something, and apparently it means the same thing as loosen, and I forgot exactly what happened but she ended up snapping her strings and he was liable cuz they mean the same thing

While that is true, considering that Semen is indeed NOT FLAMMABLE (or NOT INFLAMMABLE, or NONFLAMMABLE, whatever way you want to put it) . I'm guessing that the OP DID know what inflammable means. Hence, he thought his semen would burn up with the sock, but was devastated to learn that it would NOT burn and his semen ended up "splashing" all around his room while his sock flammed alone. Still, a stupid situation, but I'll give him credit for knowing that inflammable and flammable are the same thing.

I'm surprised #204's point wasn't the first comment. People point out that inflammable and flammable mean the same thing, but it doesn't occur to anyone until this point that semen could not possibly be flammable? If it's a liquid, and it comes from your body, obviously it's mostly water. It's not like the human body produces kerosene. Also, what's with people declaring incorrectly that words do or do not exist on this site? You're ON THE INTERNET. It's not that hard to look it up first.

Damn u beat me to it! Favorite Simpsons quote. But really, I do know what Inflammable means but I blame no one for not knowing since the prefix in- almost always means not.

Agreed. YDI for doing it. I guess inflammable means flammable due to English sucking. OP, Your friend didn't mean that. Your friend probably thought inflammable mean "Cannot catch on fire" as it would appear to be using the logic of the English language. What a stupid word.

I think the OP meant that his friend told him that it was inflammable(cannot be lit on fire) but then he found out that it was flammable(or in his words, "not inflammable"). To the OP: maybe the sock was the thing that was flammable and not the semen?

define: inflammable -gas or liquid able to ignite, explode or have adverse effect on humans or animals. -Capability of a combustible material to ignite easily, burn intensely or have rapid rate of flame spread.

I was about to comment on that, too. Ha-ha! Inflammable does not mean "doesn't catch fire". Psht. I'm surprised this FML passed by the "selection process" with that wording. Then again, maybe that's why it passed; confusion much? Anyway, it's pretty disgusting what he did. An excuse to jack off? :p "for the sake of science".

Why the hell did it take 5 comments for someone to bring this up... INflammable = flammable... because the root word is "inflame" as in... "to fucking set on fire" YDI OP

Where is Dr. Nick from anyway? He seems European, but I can't quite center him on Italy, Turkey or Albania. Also, the correct term for not flammable is uninflammable. That is to say, "un" (not) "inflamm" (set on fire) "able" (able to be). Thus, uninflammable means "not set on fire able to be".

dr. nick is from the simpsons. "very much not inflammable" meaning that it's NOT flammable? and then saying that you had to shake it to put it out? this fml confused the shit out of me

I was also going to say...maybe the sock (fabric items are generally flammable) was what caused the commotion...rather than the semen. Next time just jack off onto the floor and try lighting the semen itself on fire.
