Instead of making meaningless comments. Explain.

I have moved on...I left behind superstitious beliefs when I was about 10 years old. Obviously that's more than can be said of you...and there you are telling people to 'move on'. LMAO!

Me explain myself? . You're not only sensitive, but funny as well.

I'm not the one that came barging in with my foot firmly planted in my mouth and making a fool of myself rather than bothering to find out what was going on. THAT was you!

Now, if you have nothing further to add, I suggest you go off and educate yourself on some British expressions. It might save you a red face in future. Have a nice day!

Well, just post up the links to the meanings of the British phrases you've used (I'm thinking of 'old horse' and 'get you nailed up'), also advise what language you need Pinacled's hot coals post 'translating' into (I'll gladly do the translation for you) and we could potentially move forward in our basic understanding of language together.

In the context of your previous types of post, it means 'hurry up and die, I'm going on holiday and need to get your coffin lid on.'

Most might 'translate' it as to do with shoeing a horse, however.

WHAT a vivid imagination you have! Let me take you through it slowly. If you go back to post 330 you will see that Lively is suggesting that I will soon have to eat my words regarding my request for his evidence.

If someone makes you a promise you might say... 'Right! I'm going to nail you down on that one', meaning - I'm going to hold you to what you have promised.

To nail something down also means to finalise something, as in...'If we can nail this meeting down by 5pm we can all go home'. So what I was saying to Lively was.... I hope it won't take long because I want to nail you down (to a whatever you are going to produce) by the time I go on holiday

'Old horse' is a term of endearment or friendliness, like calling someone 'Old Chap', 'Old thing', 'Old beast', 'Old man'. Have a look through my posts and you will see that I refer to almost everyone in those terms.
