    justusforus got a reaction from czarina84 in What makes idioms confusing   
    I find similar to the "bomb" usage of "sick".  I had an observer refer to a classic car I drove as "sick" meaning cool (not to be confused with temperature) but meaning a compliment of the cars looks or condition.  Sick in the sense of health, meaning "ill" would not be used in referring to the car.

    There are so many threads here on idioms that are phrases when literally translated would not make sense to the non-native speaker and some, that I have never heard, I could not figure out.
