A phrase used in the sense of "hold onto your hats" Inspired by the 1983 hit by Stevie Nicks, exclaiming stand back once or twice in a row is used to prepare somebody to be shown or told something amazing. The known origins of such use of the term are from around Richmond Virginia, by 80's heads who sought to help keep the 80's alive and well.

Does the stand-back-stand-by math sound like some curricular or mathematical equivalent of the repeal-and-replace Obamacare? If politics over math could increase the odds of getting the president re-elected, the risks are worth taking.
