What unique sayings do you have in your country and what do they mean?

I was just watching a show where an American said "It an't over til the fat lady sings" which is a common saying here and means it isn't over until the very end and we can win this. It is a reference to the last song of the opera Götterdämmerung, usually sung by a large woman.

    • I don't like them either, that is why it is listed as last. It is big in Germany from what I understand.

  • The BMW is a better car.

    • I think they may have better performance but Mercedes is better for quality IMHO.

    • That is their reputation but the quality has fallen off for the past several years.

    • Not from my experience anyway but I will keep an eye out for problems.
