comment What is “I'm gonna serve it to you” trying to convey?
Thank you, I did not realize that 'it' had originated from the protagonist himself. Interesting observation.

comment Is there a secular, non vulgar alternative to “for heaven's sake”?
Thank you for the new expression! I expect that once Phil Plait reads this, the whole internet will make a meme out of it.

comment What do you call both persons involved in a transaction?
In both Russian and in Hebrew as well, one would use "how" (как, איך) in place of "what".

comment When I inherit, my father does what?

comment How was sexual intercourse referred to before 'sex'?
I happen to be familiar with the Biblical use of "knew", but I ask about colloquial, non-vulgar use. The word "sex" is colloquial, is not vulgar, nor is it considered literary or sermo nobilis.
