comment Editors - Sting lyrics meaning question
Song lyrics need not mean anything. As with poetry, it's up to the listener how to interpret the words. I suggest you try a Sting-related discussion forum or lyrics-centered site like,, or .

comment Idiom for someone who buys all the best gear to do something before they even have a basic proficiency?
Drinking the Kool-Aid is blindly accepting a belief or system of beliefs, something orthagonal to the concept requested. Someone who is going skiing for the first time and orders all the most advanced, most sophisticated equipment isn't necessarily making a statement that skiing is greatest sport and the best form of recreation. She has not drunk the Kool-Aid. Someone else may constantly be singing the praises of Apple products, and will refuse to even have a conversation about alternatives. Even if he does not own a single item from Apple, he's drunk of, and is drunk on, some mean malic.

comment English idiom equivalent “discover America/Mediterranean”
Based on the description in the OP, I would think the direct equivalent would be more like he thinks he invented the wheel than he thinks he reinvented the wheel.

I was a history major with a concentration in classical civilization. And some institutions do not use the term major and minor; Harvard uses concentration and secondary for example.

comment mom-husband-wife thing
The friend is referring to some archetypical lifestyle involving a mom, a husband, and a wife (it is not clear whether the mom and the wife are the same person), in which the friend was involved for five years with Sara.
