  1. In Key West where repo men sit atop their houses waiting to hear the call, they may argue that it stands for, "salvage our scuttle."

    Or "shoot the survivors" if one was a little too ambitious to get at that wreck

  2. I've heard totally different story about the "bite the bullet" thing. When era of muzzle loading fire arms particularly when they start using "minie" ball bullets solders packed their bullets in separate wrappings. each single wrap contains a one bullet and measured amount of gun powder. When they were loading the gun they just bite off the bullet end of the wrapping to open it up. Then pour the gun powder in to the muzzle and then follow with the bullet. I don't know which one is the better interpretation anyway thanks for that block buster thing.

  3. Dud you know that 3 square meal a day comes from british navy. The crews were served meals in square trays. Also the 9 yards refers to the total length of .303 ammo belts in a WW2 spitfire fighter.

  4. So bite the bullet is also thought to come from the days of the old paper cartridges for smoothbore muskets. You would bite the bullet off the end of the paper cartridge to rip it open so you could then pour some powder into the flash pan and then down into the barrel before inserting the remaining paper and the ball round ( bullet ) into it and ramming it down with the ram rod.
