Jimcor: I agree with you on that one.  If one hasn't stolen from the community, there is nothing to give back.  However, one may wish to donate to the community, and that donation may consist of money, services, property or time.  But the phrase "give back" gives me nothing more than a politically incorrect laugh.

Blood doesn't boil.

 
Not to split hairs.........  BUT
 
Human blood boils at just a slightly higher temp than water (due to the elements and minerals included in it) also a cool fact the higher in altitude you are the lower the boiling temp is.  So at roughly 63,000 (unpressurized) feet your blood would boil at about 98.6.
 
  That is supposed to be my "nerd" smilie, I like science

and the WHOLE going green thing
 
 
  I must admit that as an adult I do use "taters" and "nana puddin"  It's a suthern THANG!

One saying that may not make one's blood boil, but is used quite often is "With all due respect".  What I find interesting is that most people see it as a way of disagreeing nicely.  When I hear it used, and the way I use it, it means "Your idea (or you) isn't due much respect, and here's what I think".  If I truly respect the other side of the argument, I usually say, "I respect your position, but......".  If I think the other guy is an idiot or his position is idiotic, the phrase, "With all due respect"  conveys my thought pretty well.

Yes, they should. The saying 24/7, at least in Milwaukee, was a whole different meaning.It wasnt used in business terms AT ALL. It was slang used to describe how one felt about life and things surrounding them. I worked in the inner city for years and this was used way before it became popular in the media. It was a threat  "-look out for me 24/7, hate you 24/7, watch your back 24/7, etc...
I admit I am a sucker for proper usage of the English language as I was taught. My father and mother are rolling in their graves at the slang and misuse of language these days.You and I are apparently of a  different generation. I dont have to like what is being spoken.


Ann -
 
I don't know whether I'm a different generation than you, but I have not heard about "24/7" being used as an "inner city" threat before.  (By the way, add "inner city" to my list of annoying terms.  What does it specifically mean?).  I have only heard "24/7" used for the hours a business is open, or the hours someone is on call (doctor, fireman, etc.).

"African-American" .... especially when it refers to someone who not only isn't from Africa, but has never even set foot in Africa.
 
Any  "[hyphen]-American" terminology.  What's wrong with just "American"?   
 
"Multi-culturalism".   ---  America is a melting pot.   Multi-culturalism is the opposite of a melting pot, and it divides us, rather than unites us.   And yes, we can have many types of cooking styles here (Chinese, Italian, Cuban, etc.) without the need for the self-segregation of "multi-culturalism".

  Of course I know that blood can boil, but breathing doesn't occur at the same time in the same place.  I also love science!

And what the heck is it with the pu ndits suddently ysing the term "optics" in the past couple weeks.
 
"The OPTICS of Obama being on vacation during the budget debate are not good."
What was wrong with the word, "appearance"?

I have to side with ann peeples on this one. I spent 35 years working in the criminal justice system, everything from a correctional officer, to Probation, to running a correctional instution, to being a police officer, to running a probation department, to being a judge. This career took me from big city urban settings to rural areas. 24/7 is/was a common term in both settings, not only to describe 7-11 hours, but as a but as a warning to watch your a$$.

Ann, we must be of the same generation. The truly disturbing point is that I hear and see incorrect usage on national news and in supposedly respected publications. Is this
 all part of the dumbing of America?

I was not "challenging" what you know.  I don't doubt it.  I have not said anywhere above that I don't believe what you said.  I was just stating that "I" had not heard "24/7" used that way.   That was my experience with it.   I'm not sure why you would take it as a "challenge" when all I did was express a different experience than yours, regarding the "24/7" term.   
 
As far as "inner city", it was a serious question.  What does "inner city" actually mean?   I'm not referring to just your area, or only to your specific use of the term, but to any area where the term is used.   I have never seen the label "inner city" on any maps, in any city, despite frequent use of the term.    I know that people have often use it to refer to ghetto areas, but is there an actual defined area or is it an actual defined term?
 
Thanks.
 
Glenn
