    Loose

    Loose rhymes with goose and moose, and is almost always used as an adjective. It can mean “free from restraints or binds” (e.g. “The dog runs loose in the yard”), “not bound together” (e.g. “She let her hair hang loose”), or “not fitting closely or tightly” (e.g. “The shirt was loose on me, so I bought the next size down”). It can also refer to something that isn’t very strict, or something that’s relaxed or limber.


    Then there's the old fashioned use of loose as a verb that still shows up in today's English. Sometimes you may see loose being used to mean “to release” or “to set free.” For example, instead of proclaiming “Release the kraken!” when you want to set a sea monster on your enemies, you could say “Loose the kraken!” However, this is generally considered an outdated use of the word.

    Which is what you did in this instance; "potential for loosing (setting free) 10 minutes to check what it means". :)
    I always get very worked up when someone "fires" an arrow from a bow when the term should be to loose an arrow.

    “Loosen the kraken!” surely?
    No, loosen is like loosen the belt, or the noose around my neck. Loose the kraken is to "let him go".

    No "lethal" anything - they believe in the "constant annoyance" plan of punishment.
