    I still can't get affect/effect clear in my head.
    'The effect of the sunlight was affected by the drugs he was taking.' A noun and a verb.
    There are other meanings, the movies have special effects. The camp guy had an affected manner.
    'To effect' as a verb can mean to cause a change "The hypnosis session effected change in him, which affected his whole life"

    That goes nicely with one of my previous ones.
    The principal of the theological college was a man of principle and concious that this matter would be on his conscience for some time.

    Here is one I just came across:-

    Sometimes lightening strikes twice.

    That will be when the baking soda falls from the cupboard and hits you on the head, then lands on your foot, because what you get in electrical storms is lightning.

    Have a look here:

    Knowing you, this misuse of the possessive "your" instead of the contraction "you're" was intentional. Nevertheless, Olly seems to have missed it.
