Oxymorons

I was on a site with a ton of oxymorons, which are always fun. These are a few of the better ones. Some were questionable, but they have amassed quite a collection.

That's quite a list! As soon as I get a chance, I will visit that site. In the meantime, I've got another one: fictional novel.

I've heard a few of those words frequently mentioned in conversations. Amazing! If more people thought about what they were saying, they might choose their words more carefully. But in the heat of a good conversation, there's little time or patience for such intricacies. Interesting, though.

thats quite an interesting list.. also check out tickle.com for IQ test.. This is quite tricky. and the list is long. It appears fairly simple but all the answers look the same.
