    I've only been sim racing for a few years and I'm taking it all too damn seriously! The whole rf2 is the be and end of all Sims has got to be erased from my memory because its ruining my whole enjoyment of others. Don't get me wrong rf2 Is impressive but too hold it on such a high pedestal is just ruining my time on these great Sims.

    I/we have a great choice of race simulators on pc why ruin this time with them *****ing over comparing enjoy what u like don't play what u don't!

    Sooooo I'm going to wipe my sim.slate clean. Which means I'm going to look at them all from a fresh outlook from.now on in. So now more rf2 is the best blasdeblah no more ac is forza comments. New outlook is what each sim does excel in and not to compare anymore , because we know that fuels war on most forums, and me saying daft things.

    Gona practise what this post preaches

    We have the same saying in The Netherlands but we use quarters since we're not cheap. :)

    @JeffL , Do we have to explain everything to the Americans :p

    Meaning
    A belated realization of something after a period of confusion or ignorance.

    Origin
    [​IMG]The Oxford English Dictionary states that this phrase originated by way of allusion to the mechanism of penny-in-the-slot machines. The OED's earliest citation of a use of the phrase with the 'now I understand' meaning, is from The Daily MirrorAugust 1939:

    And then the penny dropped, and I saw his meaning!

    The image of someone waiting for a penny-in-the-slot mechanism (which often jammed) to operate does sound plausible and, if that isn't the origin, it is difficult to imagine what is.

    British public toilets in 1939 required users to 'spend a penny' in order to unlock the door to get in and that has given rise to speculation that that is the source of the phrase. There's no evidence to support that theory though. Likewise the theory that the expression originated with the 'Button A/Button B' style of telephone boxes, which used coins as payment for calls and which were also in use in 1939.

    Earlier citations, which make literal reference to actual coins and which are likely precursors of the later figurative use of the phrase, appear in print in the USA from the early 20th century; for example, this piece from the Maryland newspaper, The Daily News, November 1921:

    The penny dropped [into the weighing scales], the needle started around the figures, and stopped this time on 150.

    We just call it an "epiphany" but I love the English's quaint little take on English. :D Although the "Nascar Crowd" saying "Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit" is pretty cool.:)
