"On steroids"

I imagine there will come a time when thereal meaning of the above term will be lost to history. One day, 'steroids' will be just a synonym for 'bigger'

Re: "Malamanteau" discussion

So on the France version of Wikipedia (or French-Canadian version if there is such a thing) does it say 'maiden name' instead? Why toss in such an uncommon foreign word on a North American page? The claim it's an "English-adopted' term, but I beg to differ....

Re: "Malamanteau" discussion

Like the term 'nee' for a woman's last name before she married. I have yet to read that term anywhere else, or hear it spoken even once.
