Re: 'point blank rage' for 'point blank range'

It also goes the other way, from “rage” to “range.”

Travel forum: “It’s a civilised place to drive; not much in the way of road range and most drivers will let you out/in at a turn or junction.”

Car forum in the Philippines: “Let’s not judge the victim even though he may have been driving arrogantly or just because his father has had a history of road range.”
