Inflammable means flammable? What a country!

Inflammable does not mean unable to burn.

The word inflammable means able to be set on fire. But the in- looks like the prefix meaning "not", so in situations involving safety, it is wiser to use the neologism flammable.

In a Roguelike, however, failing to understand that inflammable means flammable is grounds for Yet Another Stupid Death.
