Not the way most people use it, but humour me - show me your difference in a sentence

I use my frying pan to cook bacon, but have considered utilising it as a weapon.

Or alternatively...

I use a pass to get the ball from myself to someone else, but I'm utilising my long pass to create space and give someone else an attacking opportunity.

I spoke to Tim Bailey and he said there is 100% chance it may or may not rain.

Use/using is intended, normal purpose. I.E frying pan to cook.

Utilise/Utilising is taking something beyond intended purpose.
I.E frying pan as weapon
Hey Sev - there are many things that you could try and improve on this forum - grammar and spelling is pretty low on the list!

How about you work on us members not being:
1. fickle
2. Rude
3. Unforgiving
4. Ruthless
5. Angry
6. Bipolar
7. Toxic
8. Forgetful

And that's just Egg!

In fairness this started in response to Egg writing utilising to begin with.

So it's all his fault when you think about it.
