Enormity ≠ Enormous

by Arnold Burian

Have I mentioned this before? It’s one of my hobby horses. Shame on Wired:

While we ponder the enormity of this little rover’s mission, it’s inevitable to wonder when our turn will come. 


Normally Wired gets it’s grammar correct, but not here!

  • Enormity—extremely bad
  • Enormous—extremely large

Don’t mix these up! Harrumpf.
