Six Figure Income (in the singular)? I lost a whole second and a half wondering why it wasn't accepted before thinking to add the s. You've wasted a second and a half of my time QM, I demand satisfaction!

Yes, there was self-deprecating sarcasm there.

Psh, I probably spent a good couple minutes composing the complaint. If I was truly worried about wasting time, I wouldn't be on a quiz site, now would I?

Can you please allow "six TO one" for "six of one"? I've always heard "six to one, half a dozen to the other." I've never heard 'of'.

I have always heard it as six IN one, as in six in one hand half dozen the other.

What you have heard is incorrect and makes no sense. The idiom is to show that there is no difference between two items/choices even if they have different labels. "Six of one thing or a half dozen of another," indicating the end result is the same either way.

Right. Through common misuse.

Just because dumb people who don't understand what they are saying misstate an idiom, which then gets repeated by other idiots, that doesn't mean that the newly-fractured version is now the idiom.

In this case, the actual idiom is "six of one, a half dozen of the other". Anything else is the result of what I just explained above.

Come on, Don. Calling folks idiots because they've misheard an idiom is pretty strong. It's no different than all the folks who've misunderstood lyrics and sang it the way they've heard it. Smart folks misunderstand what others are saying, too.

What a bunch of idioms.

It seems like saying it that way would mean that one thing can mean different things to different people, when the meaning of the actual saying means almost the opposite: that one thing by two different names, or two nominally different things, are actually the same thing.

It is always "6 of one, half a dozen of the other"--anything else is someone stating it wrong or misunderstanding. "Half a dozen" IS six of something. And as a comparison, it's the only thing that makes sense. We had a history prof who said that phrase every 5 minutes...drove everyone insane. I never heard the phrase stated any other way. And I'm old.

Am I the only one who wonders about the bionic man? If they remade the show today, would it still be the "Six Million Dollar Man"? Or would it be a higher amount, given 40 years of inflation?

'Big Hero 6' only works if you type the whole answer whereas every other answer you don't have to type in the 'six' or '6'. Should be fixed just for consistency.

Goliath's height is listed in the Bible as six cubits and a span - aka about 9 feet 6 inches. "And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span." - I Samuel 17:4

Used to have a six pack when I was painting houses for a living. Once I started sitting in front of a computer, it turned into more of a keg. Or a one pack, as I like to call it. :-)

Polydactyl cats are not limited to having only 6 toes on any given paw. Many have more than 6. I had a polydactyl cat (named Mittens, what else?) and he had 3 extra toes on each front paw.

King Henry also had six toes. (and four additional toes beyond those 6)

I tried six rounds, six bullets, six shots, and six rounder before I gave up. Should accept a couple more answers, I think.

That is very odd clue for Big Hero Six as the movie isn't about robot superheros at all. I suggest you watch it, it's an amazing movie.

Jun 1, 2018
I agree the clue as written is not 100% accurate (could be "Disney movie about superheroes, one of whom is a robot"?), but I think it's close enough that people familiar with the movie will still get it. Not that many Disney movies out there about superheroes.

It's not even about superheros, it's about these nerdy science people who decide to equip their gadgets for a single good purpose with varying results. Baymax is the only robot but delivers more as a comic sidekick. Also, isn't that superheroEs?

if you need a new option.. how about "to deep six" ie throw something into the sea, i think it relates to 6 feet being in a fathom...used this expression when we lived on a boat for a few years, easy way to get rid of the kids when they were annoying...
