3 favorites of one of my A&P instructors:

1. Hotter than 2 dogs f***ing.

2.Colder than a naughty girls heart.

3. Harder than a wedding c**k.

Sad thing is, I remember more of his sayings than I do about AC electrical.

My dear old dad used to say
"it's that muddy you could bog a duck out there".

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Re: Idioms and common sayings....

A helicopter is a tight flying formation of loose parts.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.

It doesn't matter who leads the most laps, only who leads the last one.

To finish first, you must first finish.

Sir Jack Brabham had this famous saying, which was that he would always try and win a race at the slowest possible speed.
