What is the difference between 30 and 487 ? Both are hot...

LucasD5 commented Oct 8, 2015

Different meanings of "hot." My hunch is that the first "hot" is temperature hot. The second "hot" is sexually attractive hot.

Flexico commented Nov 10, 2015

That is likely, but I would have only included one, as from an information perspective that's a redundancy on the list. But what do I know.

@pkamb fixed. thanks

I'm fairly sure that you mean to have "not" in there instead of one of the versions of "hot". I'm guessing it's an OCR issue. "not" is far too common a word to be left out...

jdpeck90 commented Nov 8, 2016

This is amazing. Thank you so much! Let me know if you need any help proof reading your ReadMes happy to help!

cegiela commented Mar 5, 2017

What's the source for this list? It's different from many of the others. For example the word 'because' usually shows up in the top 100, but is absent here.
