The Acid Test





This came from the California Gold Rush in the 19th century, when prospectors and dealers used acid to distinguish gold from base metal - if the metal dissolved in a mixture of hydrochloric acid and nitric acid, it was real.

Shakespeare coined this term in The Merchant of Venice, when Portia says: "And shuddering fear, and green-eyed jealousy! O love, Be moderate;". He then used green eyed monster again in his most famous play about jealousy – Othello.

"Saved by the bell"


Contrary to popular belief, this phrase didn’t originate from the popular 90s sitcom.

"Two left feet"...........


Be clumsy: to be not at all graceful when you move or dance.

This expression conjures up an image of feet that are not symmetrical, as left and right are, therefore causing imbalance or stumbling.

It was first recorded in 1915.

"A Horse Of A Different Color".......



Something completely different or separate, especially in comparison to something else.

Sidebar: This term probably derives from a phrase coined by Shakespeare, who wrote “a horse of that color” ( Twelfth Night, 2:3), meaning “the same matter” rather than a different one. By the mid-1800s the term was used to point out difference rather than likeness.


Thanks Gemme for jogging my memory of this.......

"Beating A Dead Horse"

Beating a dead horse means someone keeps bringing up the same subject and wanting others to participate in a discussion or debate about it. While you feel every aspect of the situation, act, or circumstance has been gone over, someone continues bringing it up.

The phrase also refers to arguments that you feel are settled but another wants to keep bringing up.

Sidebar: The origin of the phrase may derive from horse racing where horses are slapped on the side with a riding crop to make them run faster. Beating a dead horse, of course, will not make it run at all, rendering the act pointless.
