Colloquial description of an item (document, schedule, contract, etc.) that cannot be altered without great effort (and possibly some destructiveness) for one reason or another.

Probably derived from how the ten commandments (Exodus 22:* in your bible) were produced on stone tablets, as it requires effort to modify a document that is etched into stone.

See also set in jello for a good opposite.
Once you sign the contract, the terms are set in stone.

Notional name for bakery outlet stores (such as what are run by Weber and Orowheat) that sell products at discount rates.

Origin is obscure, but probably comes by analogy that something that's previously used is a lot cheaper than something that's new.

Usage is considered silly.

AOL
America Online.

One of the largest and most popular internet service providers, simply owing to the advertising barrage they've committed to since the September That Never Ended started.

They have a reputation for having bad customer service, even worse users, and downright horrible connection lag on their dialup, complete with a proprietary bloatiferous client. Those that want off have a hard time getting off due to the fact that they won't forward your email.
From a commercial: "A friend of mine told me I should try America Online. 'Why?' I asked. 'I already have a computer!'"
