The flaming line arrays were also probably quite spectacular.

So is everything in India corrupt, at least from a regulatory standpoint?

So the materials that aren't flammable caught on fire?

I remember the days when flammable was the opposite to inflammable....apparently not anymore.

EDIT :

They mean the same thing ( although flammable doesn't really exist????) and the opposite to inflammable is nonflammable..according to the sources I have researched.....

From good old Wikipedia...
Historically, flammable, inflammable and combustible meant capable of burning.[1] The word "inflammable" came through French from the Latin inflammāre = "to set fire to," where the Latin preposition "in-"[2] means "in" as in "indoctrinate", rather than "not" as in "invisible" and "ineligible".

The word "inflammable" may be erroneously thought to mean "non-flammable".[3] The erroneous usage of the word "inflammable" is a significant safety hazard. Therefore, since the 1950s, efforts to put forward the use of "flammable" in place of "inflammable" were accepted by linguists, and it is now the accepted standard in American English and British English.[4][5] Antonyms of "flammable/inflammable" include: non-flammable, non-inflammable, incombustible, non-combustible, ininflammable,[citation needed] not flammable, and fireproof.

Welcome to the English language.

Where the contents aren't very contenting.

Though and rough should rhyme with cough through some strange reason, perhaps, why pony and bologna do, they don't.

And no one knows whether it is either read, either read.

I want to know if the audit passed prior to the event starting with or without the combustible items beneath stage.

A fire safety audit was also conducted prior to programme and all Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) were followed. A comprehensive inquiry into the incidence of fire will be conducted to ascertain reasons, Fadnavis had said while ordering for the detailed probe.

I'm sure it passed with the combustible currency beneath the table.

(Yes, that is an unfair accusation of corruption with no basis in fact.)
