I think the following definitions are just special cases of use up, so I removed them:
- To eat.
- Baby birds consume their own weight in food each day.
- To burn.
- The fire consumed thousands of acres of forest.
If someone wants to move them back, please provide better explanations of examples that make clear there is a real difference to the first definition. henne 16:18, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
