What does your back is against the wall mean?
The term "your back is against the wall" means that you have reached a point where you have no other options. When your back is against the wall you have no other course than to either give up or move forward and face what has you backed against the wall. Since this question was put into the Christian category I will answer it as a Christian. There will be times in your life that things will go wrong. It will seem that all things are against you and you have your back against the wall with no way out. I fully believe that Satan makes you feel like you have been abandoned and unloved so that you will give up. This is a lie. God will never abandon you. I have had my back against the wall countless times in my life and each time God has saved me. When my back is against the wall it gives me time to pray to God that He will help and deliver me. He has never failed me. Also when your back is against the wall it gives you something to push off from. When your back is against the wall, Look up!

It's from the movie Red Dawn, it is simply codewords for something, here is the quote: Radio Free America Announcer : It's 11:59 on Radio Free America; this is Uncle Sam, …with music, and the truth until dawn. Right now I've got a few words for some of our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone: "the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall", "john has a long mustache, john has a long mustache". It's twelve o'clock, American, another day closer to victory. And for all of you out there, on, or behind the line, this is your song. [ the Battle Hymn of the Republic begins to play ] This style of codeword/phrase system was used in Europe during WW2 to send instructions to operatives behind enemy lines. The Chair is Against the Wall could mean that a set of railway tracks must be blown up or a supply drop was en route to a group of operatives. "John has a long mustache" is a direct reference to the Allied code phrase for Operation Overlord, the Normandy Invasion (D-Day, WW2). The signal, like many others, was sent over normal radio broadcasts; each codeword/phrase meant something to a specific group or individual listening in Nazi occupied territory. This specific code phrase was the signal to the French Resistance (the Maquis) that the invasion would begin the next day. To them, this meant that need to execute pre-arranged sabotage and other preparations as planned before the landings on the French coast. The whole sequence is an homage to the movie "The Longest Day", in which French Resistance members are listening to the radio, and hear a sequence of the normally meaningless (to them) phrases, until they hear "John has a long mustache" repeated twice, and set in motion the pre-invasion plans. The Germans also realize the invasion is about to begin, but due to Allied deceptions, the Nazis are still unsure as to the landing site. In "The Longest Day", the sequence was "Molasses tomorrow will bring forth cognac", then "John has a long mustache".
Why can you not possibly bend over and touch your toes when you stand with your back and heels against a wall?

What is the medical term meaning rhythmic pressure of the blood against the walls of a vessel particulaly an artery?
Blood pressure (abbreviated BP) is the pressure of blood against the walls of a vessel. The rhythmic beating nature of that pressure, caused by the alternating ventricular con…traction and relaxation in the heart, is the pulse (abbreviated P). Blood pressure has two values - the systolic blood pressure and the diastolic blood pressure. When the heart beats, it pushes blood through the arteries to all of the tissues in the body. It is at this point that the pressure from the blood against the artery walls is at its highest and this value is the systolic blood pressure. When the heart is at rest, in between beats, the pressure on the artery walls is much lower and this value is known as the diastolic blood pressure. blood pressure

What does it mean when you have a dream about someone you don't like pinning your hands against the wall and kissing you passionatly?
This dream expresses the dreamer's feeling of being abused in some area of life, not necessarily in a sexual way. The "someone" is a symbol that probably represents something …such as the dreamer's job, the school, or even one's family. Being pinned against a wall is a clear representation of being forced against one's will - the dreamer is being maneuvered or coerced into doing something. The entire scenario feels very much like a situation in which the victim is set up to be blamed: "She wanted it. She was asking for it. She liked it." Overall, this dream could be a message from the dreamer's subconscious mind to be alert to her vulnerability in some area of life. It would be wise to evaluate one's work situation, school, social circle, etc., and avoid or correct vulnerable situations. By the way, if someone thinks about you before they go to sleep, that cannot cause you to dream of them. Dreams exist only within the brain (mind) of the dreamer and cannot effect anybody else.
