comment Word that means “to worsen esp. suddenly”
I have chronic swelling so the swelling is always there and it worsens whet I'm active. So my swelling inflames acutely when I become too active?

comment What's the antonym of “buy-in”?
@Jeremy but you can't really bet any chips without converting the cash into betting chips first, at least most casinos won't allow you to bet on a table with purely cash. So I guess the idea of conversion in this term is implied. I mean why would you convert the cash into chips without the intent of playing on the table? I wonder if there's a separate term that solely means to convert cash into playing chips only but without the intent of using them on the table.

comment What's the antonym of “buy-in”?
@Jeremy Interesting. I've always understood buy-in to mean converting cash into playing chips, at least that's what the term they use for poker since I play poker. This website defines it this way as well.

or "are there trade-offs for this thinness" works as well?

comment What's the meaning of “roll out” here?
@Kris I absolutely had no idea that the term roll out had a connection with the term let's roll. The term let's roll is readily available in the dictionaries, but the term roll out with the definition of to start an activity can not be found.

comment What's the meaning of “roll out” here?
@Kris It honestly did not occur to me that definition #4 was what the term meant in the context. "to officially launch or introduce a new product or service" sounds so serious to me like some multi-million dollar corporation product launch. The guy was simply trying to resale second-hand items on Craigslist. Anyway, the term is unknown to me and I just wanted a confirmation of its meaning.
