comment What's the origin of the idiom “cut corners”?
@terdon I actually didn't get a chance to go through the newer answers, and pardon me I'm a slow reader :( I will decide once I finish reading them :)

comment What is a less wordy way of describing how this car is situated?
@Kevin I don't have access to my laptop now to use Paint, I'm on my iPad unfortunately :( but it's basically a "T" shape instead of a cross of the intersection.

comment What is a less wordy way of describing how this car is situated?
I think I have misunderstood the meaning of intersection. I have always thought that intersections are always two roads that cross each other and in my case since the side street didn't cross the main road I thought it's not an intersection, my mistake -.-"

comment “Get everything together”
What if I were to say this in person, like we've just finished hanging out and I want to say for next time "I will shoot you a message once I get everything together."?

comment What does “intake” of central intake mean?
For some reason I like this definition better. I actually tried calling the number and pretended to be a homeless and they did actually conduct a series of interviews asking me questions like my name, where I live, my financial situation, etc.. to see if I'm eligible for shelter.

comment Get everybody “rustled” in the place
@MετάEd Oh I thought, because of the many orders from the passengers in the bus that's what made the staffs rustle.

Funny I have never seen a bus pulled in the drive-thru. I'm not sure if it could even go through the roadway lol.

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.

comment Word that means to “get something good but loses something else good in return”
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.

comment What are the distinctions between the insulting names “jerk”, “a--hole”, “bit-h”, “c-nt”, and “dipsh-t”?
@Mari-LouA My sole intention is the curiousity of the nuances between the individual terms, and I admit they might be offensive to some, but it's still part of the English language. And by the way, I'm not a native speaker and I'm no longer a schoolboy :)

comment What are the distinctions between the insulting names “jerk”, “a--hole”, “bit-h”, “c-nt”, and “dipsh-t”?
@KristinaLopez I often hear these terms somewhat frequently on discussion boards and was just wondering if there are slight nuances between them. Friends will sometimes jokingly used these words on me like, "you're an a--hole!", or "you are such a jerk!" and I'm wondering do they simply mean I'm an unpleasant person, or do the terms convey something more subtle that I'm not aware of.

..because they are stupid or rude.
