This is sort of silly. I’m never going to tell anyone to quit being a pedant to Cody, but I strongly suspect that everyone here knew exactly what Cody meant, which means he is correct. Language is not as specific as we might like. We live in a world where “literally” doesn’t actually mean literally anymore.

I gotta admit I was pretty confused. But I can see how it's cody and I should have taken it with a grain of salt.

Yeah, same here. Which is why I asked for a clarification.

I knew what he was saying was completely wrong in how he phrased it. Which is why I made fun of the comment. But again, this is Cody we are talking about, it was very likely he had some super weird connection to the original sentence that no one ever saw coming.

And for the record, it's not up to me to parse Cody's incorrect statement as something that it is not. It's up to him to correctly communicate to other people. He failed to do so with at least two of us.
