5. I don't know...

However, I do think that "being bleached" would be a good term for someone who doesn't know what they are talking about and is trying to convince you of something, or trick you.

"Oh, he was just trying to bleach me."

"Bleach me once, shame on me. Bleach me twice and won't get fooled again."

6. Most people younger than 40 probably don't know what "drinking the kool-aid" is in reference to.

Hard to believe Jonestown was over 40 years ago.

7. You're right. I am showing my age. Still, that phrase seems to have become part of the

common vernacular.

15. You owe me a Coke!

I posted the same thing, with “bleach” instead of Clorox this morning. Think it sounds better with Clorox, though.
