Very boring thread but really pissing me off

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've been pondering over the last hour or so (yes I’m that sad) about the expression bear/bare in mind.
    Which is the correct lexis?
    I've always thought it was "bare" in the same fashion as in "the right to bare arms" so in other words the right to hold arms. So expression means "hold in mind".
    But whenever I see it written, "bear" all I think is a bloody great grizzly. Is it just peoples using the more frequent application of the word bear?

    Anyway I am consulting ARRSE's eternal wisdom once more however I still maintain it is and should be spelt "bare" until I’m proved wrong.
    Yes it is boring and I expect it will be move to the ARRSE hole however it's really bugging me.

    Not in the same league mate. :roll: :roll:
     
  12. Look, simple answer is;

    To Bear - means to carry
    To Bare - means to uncover

    Which are you? ........Don't tell us, make a cup of cocoa, go to bed and think about it..............................there's a nice fella!
     
  13. Sing a long what?
     
  14. Concur about it being a shite thread and of course it's 'bear in mind' as in hold it in mind..you obviously get confuddled through thinking about bare/naked things too much 8)
    Whilst we are on this though I have a similar one that I can never remember...is it "Hear hear" or "Here here"?
    Yes I know it's obvious..but only when you know the answer! :oops:
