    Overheard at work this afternoon. It just occurred to me today how someone unfamiliar with this phrase might interpret it.

    a by-product of having a non-native speaker as a gf is that my internal monologue relentlessly de-constructs figures of speech

    The JDFF has got to be the last bastion for "shit a brick," right? Because I thought we moved on from that at least 15 years ago.

    This Asian woman sitting next to me on the train keeps showing me pics of Kate Upton on her iPhone 6 Plus. She has shown me like 5 pics and keeps asking "You like?" "You think this girl pretty?"

    I just asked her "Are you shitting me?"

    I asked her if we could take a selfie that I could post on an Internet message board and she shook her head "no" but I held my phone up to try it anyway and she pushed my arm away.

    I know it is not a new phrase but I’ve heard a few people today refer to something they’ve not done in a long time as, “It’s been a minute.”

    Made me think of this thread for some reason.

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/all%20bets%20are%20off

    —used to describe a situation in which it is impossible to be sure about what will happen
    //All bets are off on the election: it's too close to call.

    Isn't an impossible to predict situation the perfect condition for people to place bets? If you know what's going to happen, what's the point of betting on it?

    Maybe I don't understand gambling at all.

    All bets are off means the previous betting market has been thrown out. Should really be "The consensus picture on the outcome has changed dramatically" or "All old bets are off"

    You have to make the leap from "Previous bets are null and void" to "Outcome is unpredictable"
