    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    That was great LT! I'm surprised they didn't explain "not worth a damn" which originally was, "not worth a tinkers dam" or the "F" bomb, which, according to some, "pluck yew".

    As a carpenter/cabinetmaker I like the origin of "Dead as a Door nail". Somewhere on this web there is a big list of all of these sayings and how they came to be and it is very interesting.

    The common word for poop came about from the ocean shipping of manure as a fertilizer which if it got wet it could cause a disaster. It was always labeled SHIT which means Store High In Transit!

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
