I'm digging this Ata Kak song. What language is this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 3:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Ike: NH/Vt...good point - it's everywhere now people close up I guess - but we're getting a bit all day today actually. Fact is, the coast south of us here has been taking the hits these days - like hurricane Sandy. Respect for that, btw...

I can fully support "in flagrante delicto," thanks REV for the alternatives.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:15pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I believe Calvin Johnson served two non-consecutive terms...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:15pm Cecile:

hey, pi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:15pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- a question of whether it's just 'dead' as intensifier like 'dead wrong' (probably) or 'dead to rights' as in now you are as good as a deceased person in terms of your legal rights (more interesting but probably not)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:18pm Cheri Pi:

Yah where does the "rights" bit come into play? It's disappointing, I'm expecting a deed or certificate or something.
  Mon. 2/2/15 4:21pm Straight Shooter:

Means shoot to kill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:22pm steve:

im with you CP, "dead to rights" hurts my brain for some reason i can't put my finger on
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...yes - it is irksome...prefer the British 'it's a fair cop' ; means you are caught & can't argue - but how do you get to 'dead to rights' from there...quite...it is colorful & definite though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:24pm common:

tell you what i hate..."Going Forward"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...too definite & too broad: even the accused...even the convicted - are still alive & have rights...
Avatar    Mon. 2/2/15 4:26pm Sem Chumbo:

*dead to rights* good explanation, I think, here:www.word-detective.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:27pm Cecile:

I never had a problem with it. I just liked the pun.
Avatar    Mon. 2/2/15 4:27pm Sem Chumbo:

at this point in time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:28pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I'll take "at the end of the day" over "End Of Day" any day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:28pm coelacanth:

i don't like "real time".
(time isn't real.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:28pm Cecile:

If I'm in that situation, I'll just say "shut up Scott". hahhaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:29pm Cheri Pi:

good catch Sem Chumbo, this make much more sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:32pm Cecile:

I'm not wild about that band's name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:32pm kirk from beer city usa:

LOOK. At the end of the day, going forward in the real world, we must keep it real, at the grassroots. Organically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:33pm Cecile:

I'm also not wild about the phrase "drink the Kool-Aid"
Avatar Mon. 2/2/15 4:34pm Claw!:

Yeah, John Carpenter!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:34pm Cecile:

But then again, I'm "of a certain age".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:34pm common:

haha! Kirk!

Third, re: knees
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- oh but that's (drink the kooloaid) from Jonestown. I like that: 'KoolAid' sounds sweet, cheap & refreshing - but means you believe & will die. See: It's that there's a specific etymological history to words - & also phrases - & then there's a more common immediate reaction to words - shades of meaning...that's why 'dead to rights' is weird: It doesn't *sound like* where it comes from as a a phrase...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:38pm Cecile:

I just hate the phrase because I still remember that day in Jonestown like it was yesterday. There are lots of other phrases that say the same thing.
Avatar Mon. 2/2/15 4:39pm glenn:

drink the tang, drink the sunny d, drink the gatorade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...phrases, cliches, misplaced &/or mixed metaphors - Orwellian soup
...oh Ce'c - 'too soon' (another phrase)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 4:40pm Cecile:

sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/2/15 4:40pm Polyus:

Who has the bandwidth to keep up with all these phrases? I just have too much on my plate.

Great Scott! There's a Great Scott Set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 5:00pm coelacanth:

i like sarcasm...and i like "really" when it's stretched out to an absurd length!...but the "...because..."phrase just sounds to me like a smug snotball is implying the person heshe's addressing is stupid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/2/15 5:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- right - so it depends on whether or not they are (a real little kid is often wrong about that)...
