"Look for the silver lining" is a suggestion that has been said so often it may appear trite to some. But it actually contains a very deep wisdom, that can help us all to get through difficulties.

"Every cloud has a silver lining" means that every difficulty or setback that causes harm, also contains a potential for a beneficent outcome. By searching for any positive effects of any difficulty or confusing circumstance, we can begin to feel more inner peace in response to the situation, thus regaining our ability to solve it if we can, or accept it if we can't.
I was so distraught that the cyclone had ripped apart our house, and destroyed everything I owned, that I became morose and helpless, unable to do anything. But I noticed that the entire neighborhood were all helping each other, talking to each other cheerfully, sympathetically, showing kindnesses and support in a way they never had before, and I began to recognize that there was a silver lining even in this disaster!

High-heeled brightly-colored shoes that young girls wear to send an unspoken "Fuck me" signal to guys. The shoes tell guys "I'm available, and interested in sex."

Amy Winehouse sings about them in a song called "Fuck me pumps" on her debut album "Frank" (2003) and she wears them in the video version of the song.
I first saw her sitting at the bar. She seemed aloof, distant, and I decided to leave her alone. Then I noticed she was wearing fuck me pumps so I went over to chat. She was warm, friendly, and later she let me take her home for the night.

The law of cause and effect. From good living, we become a better person, gain greater inner peace and enjoy a good life. From bad living, we become a worse person, destroy our inner peace, and get plagued by a bad life. Simple as that.
He had so many heart problems, I began to wonder if he was cruel to someone in his previous life, and was now reaping his karma!

She was beautiful even in her old age, so I knew she must have led a good life, and was now getting her good karma.

I began to see that there was selfishness and fear within all my actions and attitudes, so I firmly resolved to make love and compassion the central factor in my life, so I would develop better karma.

It is used to refer to spending a lot of money, making a mess, or stuffing up very badly.
Oh man, I really did a BP on that one. (I really stuffed up.)

It's going to take me all day to clean this mess up. It's a real BP!

Tidy up your room! It looks like BP was in it!

No, I didn't pass the exam. In fact I made a complete BP of it.

There's no official club of that name, it's just an expression, meaning sex aboard an aircraft in flight. It happens on nearly all flights, mostly with the hottest air hostesses.
There was a really hot air hostess on my flight here. The others around us appeared to be asleep, or at least lost in their thoughts, so she pulled down her nickers, wrapped my blanket around her hips, climbed on my lap, and together we joined the mile high club.
