IM-flammable vs. IN-flammable

Bonfire

Is that pile of wood imflammable or inflammable? Certainly looks very flammable to me, but did you know it’s also imflammable? It boggles my mind that two words that are differentiated only by one alphabet, alphabets that are right next to each other both in order as well as on the keyboard, can mean such completely different things. And it’s even worse that the meaning is crucially important to safety. 

IM-flammable as this Yahoo Answers post tries to explain, actually means that it IS flammable. IN-flammable, on the other hand, means it isn’t. Take note and beware!
