I was wondering whether British members do know what does it mean, or not.:


to tie the knot

to make a killing

unworldly

not a rocket scientist

far-fetched

refusnik

to cede

reluctance

big-game hunting

to kowtow

to sign off on something

(....)


I can post proper answers if needed.

Tie the knot is to 'get married'.
Make a killing is like - to buy something cheap and sell for plenty profit.
Unworldly - I dont know, lol.
Not rocket science - this means it is not hard to understand - easy !
Far fetched - is maybe like a lie or exagerating
Refusnik - Dont know
To cede - dont know
Reluctance - To be careful of doing something or to have doubts about it
Big game hunting - Safari to shoot the big animals (lions, Elephants etc etc )
To kowtow - Dont know
To sign off on something - Dont know

I got some of these but not all, lol.......I think x
