The normal expression is " pale into insignificance ". To pale is to fade away. To pale into insignificance is to fade away to virtually nothing. If something pales into insignificance, it does not seem at all important when compared to something else. eg When your child's ill, everything else pal…es into insignificance. With the outbreak of war all else fades into insignificance. . But pale in significance is also heard which means something is less important than before. ( Full Answer )
it is related to the phrase "beyond the pale" (nowadays meaning outside of normal behaviour or expectations). The phrase "beyond the pale" relates to areas that were fenced off in Russia, by Catherine the Great.. the fence being made out of stakes (pales) which marked out regions on which you could …live, beyond which was "beyond the pale".. You can further understand the word "pale" from words like "impaling" something... by sticking it on a stake, such as Vlad the Impaler, who had a habit of killing people by lowering them onto a sharp stake or pale.. So, back to the "pale into insignificance", relates to the area beyond the pales or stakes, therefore the area is of no use or indeed is not an area you can enter/live in, therefore this land/area "pales into insignificance" ( Full Answer )

After someone's grasshopper got old they then referred to its earlier existence as the young grasshopper. It just kind of stuck. Basically any grasshopper that isn't old is a young grasshopper. A middle aged grasshopper probably would not be called a young grasshopper but merely just a "grasshopper"…. I never heard of that. Instead it refer's to the Kung Fu TV series where the main character was being taught his Kung Fu skills, as a child, his mentor (with flashbacks in the TV show) would call him YOUNG GRASSHOPPER. You most often heard "Have patience Young Grasshopper". ( Full Answer )

The Gadsden flag, as it is called, represents several importantprinciples that this nation was founded upon. The most important ofwhich is unity; at least in my opinion. The dissected snakerepresented the original 13 colonies. The slogan 'join or die',manifested the importance to unite the snake, i.…e. the colonies, inorder to achieve independence. A united snake/united colonies increased the chances for gainingfreedom whereas a divided effort would have mitigated them.Treading on a 'whole' rattlesnake is much more dangerous thantreading upon rattlesnake pieces! The rattlesnake symbol continuedto convey a message after the Rev. War. The message was: Don't MessAround With the U.S.! Rattlers do not arbitrarily attack. Their reputation precedes themand commands respect as well as fear. However, when provoked,threatened, and/or agitated, their response is quick, precise, andoverwhelming. The obvious conclusion is that they are reactive tothreatening situations as opposed to proactively instigating them. The description above closely resembles the historical conduct ofthe U.S. from it's inception. Unfortunately, any semblance has beenabruptly eradicated over the past six years thanks to our currentpolicies; both domestic and foreign. Furthermore, the fundamentalmeaning/message slogan of the Gadsden flag has been seriouslydamaged and compromised. The attacks on 9/11/01 created a perfect environment for thishistorical slogan to flourish; it's message, an environment thatallowed it to be exhibited in it's purest form. Yet, the initialnational unity that was immediately apparent, quickly vanished.Moreover, the respect that this slogan conveyed to theinternational community has been squandered. Forfeited! Our country means freedom, in my view. That includes freedom frombeing tread on! Sadly, being 'tread on' is an internal/domesticcrisis that we face first and foremost. Until we address thedomestic 'treading', we will never be able to effectively deal/copewith external threats. Again, unity is the key. United we stand...divided...etc! Perhapsthe Gadsden flag demands closer examination from all of our fellowcitizens. We can only hope! ( Full Answer )
