There was a TV series in the '70s (?) where they measured time in parsecs.

"It won't ruin a book for me though."

Same here. But I like words. And sometimes how they are used makes me flinch.

Examples -
A plastic cased radio on sale "Titanium Radio". Titanium sounds good, so it must be a good radio.
Grand Opening is supposed to be a special event. Special discounts, food, entertainment. Something of a celebration. Instead it now means - "We're open".
Even the word "special" has lost the meaning of "better than ordinary". It can now mean mentally handicapped or physically disabled.
