Wow. I live more-or-less across the street from train tracks, so I've learned to accept and even love the noise, but I've never had to take into consideration stumbling out of my apartment hungover to smoke a cigarette and get hit by a train.
You're not very hung over if don't notice the noise of the train

Smoking kills.

Oh my fucking God, IT'S NOT *LITERALLY* PASSING THROUGH YOUR LIVING ROOM, you dumb British muppet! It's *literally* passing by your front door, *literally* passing through your front garden, or rather, passing through where your front garden _would_ be, had you not a big ass rail-line sitting there instead!

At no point does this train go through anyone's living room!!!
What about the homeless? Heartless bastard!

I considered that, but being homeless is more of a studio setup, not really a living room situation. Besides, when you're homeless, you can move quite easily; if you're homeless and you've chosen to place your living room on the train tracks, you won't last very long.

It's interesting to watch the definition of "literally" change. Words and phrases, of course, change definitions fluidly and all the time (agnostic doesn't actually mean kind atheist, uncanny valley doesn't actually mean a video game looks bad, etc.), but the way people misuse "literally" is so grossly incorrect (literally the opposite of its definition, in fact!), combined with the fact that people who understand what the word means have a higher-than-usual affection with the word is creating a huge backlash to the misuse. It's been very interesting to see this one play out.

I both agree and disagree Hooker. I agree that words evolve meaning over time. But I disagree with you, because using "literally" in such a way, opposite of its intended usage, is completely wrong. There is absolutely no reason to cheapen the English language through sheer ignorance and laziness.

They're literally cheapening the English language.
