It seems that everyone I know knows what it means to 'burn' someone. I've never been able to ask because I'm worried people might find it weird that I don't know what it means. It seems to some funny thing, but I don't know what it's all about. I don't get 'burning' someone. I've looked it up and all I've seen are things saying stuff about skin burns. Can anyone offer an explanation?

    it means a few things. you could be going faster than someone. you could have punked them, like made fun of them. or you could have given them a STD. any of those mean something to you?

    Burn, to me, is to make fun of someone, play a joke on them, dis them. Stuff like that. Watch "that 70s show". They do a lot of burns, its funny :)

    I think it depends on the context in which the word is used.

    For example - if you said: "Her hair was so whack, I just had to burn her about it!" - Then it would mean that the person insulted, or made fun of, the lady with the whack hair.

    However, if you said: "She's so evil, I'm gonna burn her and listen to her tormented screams of agony" - Then it means that the person intends to ignite the evil lady and take morbid pleasure in watching her suffer.

    It's all about the context really.

    Long term effects of a human being burned means the individual has stop trying. Whether a person has been burned he or she wont establish any effort finding any good in what was interesting instead not even bother or even have lost interest in generally most things. 

    For eg:

    'Mr Lightning worked in the Security Industry for nearly ten years and most of all his time and effort put in to trying to get somewhere and be someone studying the courses he studied, implementing site operational procedures and even help train new staff was not appreciated or thanked in anyway by company he was working seven years under, unlike his first security company he was comfortable with. Instead Mr Lightning was terminated effective immediate sammarily dismissed after seven years for not co-operating with a provisional lisenced gaurd who was placed by the company as a supervisor, supervising Mr Lightning. Now Mr Lightbing has no hope left to move forward after being deceived.'

    Its not a good thing to burn someone or have anybody burned, nor has it any common sense helping. Its amusement to burn an individual but in the eyes of another individual who has been serious been burned, its just another pity day at the office where an *** hole needs a punch in the face. I hope my elaborated logical explanation helps those who are rising curious, if you have been named 'burned' dont worry it just means you show it in yourself to others the worst has come to you.

    To be burned means to stop trying and the trick to gettin out of being burned in most cases is a smart *** reply in return or simply carrying on. For those with cases being burned from long term effects their is no magic, time is your friend, be patient with the things your waiting for and every dog/s has his or her day.

    I believe so far people have shared correct knowledge on how the term 'burned' is being used but in the larger scale the general public needs to what the term 'burned' actual is.
