Hi everyone,

This thread comes after Staying Alive is Not Enough -5-
 that reached 1,000 messages.


I open this new thread "Staying Alive is Not Enough -6-"
because I often appreciate the postings of this organization
from their Facebook page: I find them very wise and nice:
I do like them.
- English language and expressions: vocabulary, grammar
- good advice for everyone's daily life
- English culture
- etc

I'm not the author of these pictures.
I'm replicating them here as, to me, we have to read oodles of sentences of lots of sorts, in usual English... they are easy to understand and we should understand.
We have to ask ourselve if we'd have written exactly the same way -with the same words- and if not, why? Is there a difference in the words? What's the difference between the words?

Thanks to " Staying Alive is Not Enough".

You are right Muriel, it's rather weird.

Thanks for the neighboring words Muriel.
However they are not interchangeable ;
for the present sentence I like
old-fashioned outdated.

In the US, "old-fashioned" is used as a noun for a cocktail based on whiskey (usually Bourbon).
