For the polyglots and language lovers, enjoy:

“40 Brilliant Idioms” by Helene Batt and Kate Torgovnick May (from TED Blog > Language)


My favorite from the list:

From Russian translator Aliaksandr Autayeu:

The idiom: Галопом по Европам
Literal translation: “Galloping across Europe.”
What it means: “To do something hastily, haphazardly.”


Quite an image. Definitely have been there.
