"Let 'Er Rip"
I don't care enough to actually research this, but my theory is that the saying "Let 'Er Rip", often used when starting up something dangerous of noisy, comes partly from the term RIP--Requiescat in Pace, or Rest in Peace.
I'm a married, thirty-something, crunchy-granola conservative. In recent years I, as the joke goes, gave up atheism (and neo-paganism) for Lent. I like humorous anime, filk, haiku, Shakespeare, Terry Pratchett, Brit-coms, and G. K. Chesterton. I dislike more things than you can possibly imagine. My personality type is INFJ (hard on the I, but in the middle on the T/F split). I'm a dog person who cleaned a cat box for more than a decade.
