Howstuffworks "A Dollar Saved...(or Invested)"

Howstuffworks "A Dollar Saved...(or Invested)": "If you save and invest money every month, you will become a millionaire at some point. As Einstein put it, compound interest is the 'eighth wonder of the world.' It all depends on how much money you currently have, how much interest that money will earn (the tricky part), and how much you can save each month -- and, of course, how long you can wait. Another critical part of the equation is that you leave the interest earned alone so that it keeps earning interest."

Let's Touch Base: The cubicle warrior's guide to office jargon - Lifehacker

Let's Touch Base: The cubicle warrior's guide to office jargon - Lifehacker: "Let's think out of the box: Really means, 'Can you creatively anemic people please come up with something?' The person who says, 'Let's think out of the box' is usually desperate for a new idea and surrounded by people who are not known for generating ideas. So the phrase is actually an announcement that says, 'I'm in trouble.'

I need someone who can hit the ground running: Really means, 'I am screwed.' Because no one can hit the ground running. You need to at least assess what race you're in and who else is running.

Do you have the bandwidth? Note that bandwidth is not time. It is something else. If you ask someone 'Do you have time?' you mean, 'Am I a priority?' If you ask someone 'Do you have bandwidth' you mean, 'You seem like your brain is fried. Can you pull yourself together to do this for me?'

Let's hit a home run: 'I'm desperate to look good. Even though the odds of a home run are slim, I'm banking on one because it's the only thing that'll save me.' Something for all your sports fans to remember: If you have a bunch of solid hitters you don't need a bunch of home runs.
