If you don't know what to do with your spare time, go walk your dog. If you don't have a dog, walk someone else's dog. It's a better way for you to spend your time than what you are doing right now. If you think you don't have any spare time, then you probably don't have a dog.

comment What does “MM” mean in this context?
Your answer isn't consistent with any authoritative reference. How double-M indicates that it's plural is not substantiated.

comment What would be 1850's equivalent of slang praise for being audacious?
@kris I think we have a more uniform understanding of it. It still may retain its local usage. But you're right, it's not universal.

American language hadn't become uniform by the 1850's and slang was regionalized at that time. Do you want to narrow it down to a particular region?

comment Is it rude to say “none of your business”?
I once answered a similar question on the way to the airport with "Can't tell ya" (Kantellia). My cab drive responded "That's in Idaho, right?" You could do something similar. If they think you are being rude, just tell them it's in Idaho.

comment What does “meth“ mean in “Meth heads snuck in to it to do meth.”?
@medica I'm going to guess *kakuseizai * is a either a very good detective or a weasel. Did my googlefoo fail me? Or is it a stimulant derived from meth or other amphetamines?
