All old fangled sayings that are allegedly from people being buried alive.


The turks however seem to have a modern day solution.


Turkish mortuary




What other sayings are you aware of that come from years ago?



Daylight robbery:


Taxes used to be put on people dependent on how many windows a property contained. People realised that they could get a reduction in tax by bricking up their windows and robbing the taxman. (Modern day equivalent is going in the papers to say you live in a shithole)

The dimwits also made their houses darker due to having less light coming in due to bricked up windows.


Hence the term Daylight robbery.
