To have a turning radius slighty larger than that of a dime, but smaller than that of a nickel.

Not as impressive as being able to turn on a dime, but still, not bad.
My new car goes from 0 to 58 in a really short amount of time, and can turn on a penny.

God's gift to all who must suffer through the cold season.

Comes in a spray bottle. Spritz it into your mouth, and it will numb your throat at least long enough for the the Nyquil you're taking to knock you out cold.
Ahh... medicated bliss!

Often used to mean "don't have any," it literally means the opposite.

ain't was originally a contraction of "am not" or "are not," and should only be used in the first person. However, as it has still not been accepted into "proper" English like its counterparts won't and can't, few people see any problem with further "misuse" of the word.

"I ain't got no money" literally means "I am not got no money," which makes no sense at all, but is nonetheless understood to mean "I have no money."

It is an example of a double negative, where the contraction "n't" and the following "not" should cancel each other out. However, very few people realize (or care) about this, and the phrase remains in common use.
I ain't got no idea what you be talkin' about.

A period of roughly six weeks, lasting from the end of November to some time in January. It includes a number of religious holidays, traditional celebrations, and family visits. It is generally accepted to be both the best part of the year (for people under the age of fifteen) and the worst part of the year (for people over the age of fifteen).

Includes: Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Advent, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the Winter Solstice, St. Nick's Day, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Winter Break (for students), and a number of others.

Sometimes used (as "Happy Holidays") as a politically correct (race, creed, and nationality-neutral) phrase on cards and decorations.

Also known as "International Muzak Month" due to the unwavering propensity of shopping establishments to assault their customers' ears with instrumental version of "Do You Hear What I Hear," "Jingle Bell Rock," and "White Christmas" for the entire six-week period.
If I hear "The Little Drummer Boy" one more time, I swear I'm going to snap. I didn't mind this as a kid, but ever since I turned fifteen, boy! I hate the holidays.

A voicemail or message left on an answering machine that is nothing but a few seconds of dead air.

Left by people who cannot, for some inexplicable reason, hang up the phone BEFORE the end of the outgoing message, but instead wait until the recording begins.
Lisa calls her friend Eric, and reaches his voicemail. Lisa has no intention of leaving a voicemail, but listens to the entirety of Eric's outgoing message (including the beep) before hanging up.

Eric's voice: Hey there, I'm not around right now. There's going to be a beep in a few seconds; you know what to do.


Lisa: .... *hangs up telephone*
