Yes English is stupid - we keep coming across all sorts of ways teaching new words to Max.

However, in this example, invaluable means 'not able to be valued', which most people use as 'valuable beyond measure' (i.e. value a lot), but it could also mean that you just cant measure it.
Inflammable has annoyed me since I was a boy. I am convinced that every person and/or sign that indicates something very flammable as inflammable is wrong.

And don't get me started on people talking about an 'insecure' network connection. A network is an inanimate object, it does not have an emotional state. If it is not secure then it should be referred to as an unsecured network.

Anyhow miss you guys in Sydney - hope you are all well.
