Fun with words II

Ever troll the internet and wonder how some people hear the world? You know - sometimes people who write expressions that either don't use real words... or do, but they aren't actually the words that normally go into the expression?

Some examples I've seen recently and my personal interpretations:

"I had just been in to get my new hair due..."
yup, it was really time to get that haircut

"My husband has such holy underwear"
It's so venerated that it would be impossible to consider throwing it out
(ok, that one was probably on purpose)

(in support of something previously said on a message board) "here! here!"
Me!! Me!! I'm the one agreeing with you!

"The causes of low back pain have tended to be illusive"
Figure out why your back hurts and you might feel inspired

Scientist: White House Restricting Info On Climate



Hansen is arguably the world's leading researcher on global warming. He's the head of NASA's top institute studying the climate. But this imminent scientist tells correspondent Scott Pelley that the Bush administration is restricting who he can talk to and editing what he can say. Politicians, he says, are rewriting the science.


Does this mean that he is not a scientist just yet?
