comment Idiom: People caring about minor stuff while something terrible is happening
OK, I see. So the Titanic idiom is more like when someone does something pointless while the one you suggest is closer to the question, I think.

comment Is there an idiom for people who boast too much?
This idiom has the meaning "Better do sth instead of talking about it" while I more needed an idiom to emphasize that sb is boasting about things they can't do. But it's a good one too.

comment Meaning of “plumb” as verb
Indeed, it says "plumb depth", but in the printed version of the newspaper it's as I posted it. First I posted the correct link which is pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/viewer.aspx but Alenanno complained that the link doesn't work for him. So you're right about the different title. I think what matters here is an explanation of "plumb" in this context - or in both if possible. Thanks a lot for the answer.

comment Meaning of “plumb” as verb
@Alenanno: Yes, but that's the title exactly as it's written in the printed version - for some reason otherwise replicates of the article on the web have different titles(!). I believe the link is not really necessary since my question is not relevant to the content of the article. Hey, how about an answer? ;)
