I found all this quite useful...
Only, I don't know what for just yet, but I'm working on it like an eager  beaver.  Something to do with Oregon State's football team doncha' know.

Chris

Holy crap the things you learn at 5:30 in the morning.

Have you ever heard the saying "son of a gun?"

That comes from the British...when they were making passage across the sea's, they brought their wives with them to America. When the women would have their babies, they delivered them under the cannons because it was the most spacious part of the ship. So when a baby boy was born a chap would yell out "We have a son of a gun."

I probably just gave you one of the most intelligent things I can remember, all that cid in the 70's really cooked my brain cells....

Thank you for this ~

 

However, the correct phraseology is 'The whole nine inches'.

Or millimeters. Centimeters.  Shit, I love the military.

I always just assumed it was (originally) a football term.
