Literally vs. Figuratively is very important. Back when I was a stick up kid I stole a bag off this dude on the train.
He told me I didn't want what was in the bag.
I told him fuck you and I have the gun.
He said if I opened that bag I would literally enter a world of hurt.
I left, found a quiet spot and opened the bag. It was a portal to hell and it sucked me in like magic.
That was a bad time. I'm only here to tell you about it because I'm so clever and resourceful. I found my way back out of hell again.
But it just goes to show, if somebody says "literally" you better know if they literally mean it.
