I've got a bone to pick with you - If somebody says this, they mean that they have some complaint to make against the person they are addressing.
I've got your number - You have made a mistake and I am going to call you on it. You are in trouble (a threat). I have a disagreement with you. I understand your true nature.

I tell what I've told, out of listless
Sadness, so often before…
I think you never listened,
So you're away you are.

In news:

I've been in a bunch of plays at my school, and I've got some expert advice on how you can put on a play of your own at home.
So I had much less time than I've ever had before to work on the play, and I've never scheduled a production for a play that wasn't already finished.
I've been thinking about this, and I've come to a shocking realization.
This is the third time that I've done it and I've personally known11 POWs because I served in Vietnam.
I've lost count of how many times I've heard it since.
I've had pretzel chips – I've even eaten a Pretzel Salad.
Over the last six months or so as I've made my rounds visiting short lines, regional railroads, and Class I's from the locomotive cab to the executive suite, I've found a refreshing sense of renewed purpose.
Now that I've had a week to think about the big controversy on "The View," I've come to the conclusion that my comment that "Muslims killed us on 9/11" was really not what caused Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to walk off the set.
I agree that it's weird, but I've totally done it when I've forgotten a sports bra.
Naturally, I've read a lot of Gore over the past decades (even, in my youth, Myra Breckenridge), but I've never met the man.
Almost every day since I've been back from the Vineyard, I've walked my dogs around Fresh Pond, the local reservoir in Cambridge, a city of 100,000.
For the last nine years I've kept a running list of every book that I've read .
As I've heard and become involved in debates over health care (see my previous post) I've noticed that some opponents take an interesting tack in stating their opposition to any kind of government-run health care program.
And though I've helped put about a dozen Best of Boise issues to press over the years, this particular BoB is one I've compiled with much reflection and pride.

In science:

It is useful to introduce the average specific intensity, I (r, t), and the current, J(r, t), which are defined as I (r, t) = Z I (r, ˆk, t)dˆk, J(r, t) = vE Z ˆkdˆk I (r, ˆk, t).
Transport mean free path for Magneto-Transverse Light Diffusion: an alternative approach
After the integration over ˆk′ the following equation is obtained ∂tJ + J (1− < cos θ >) + A1 ˆB × J = −ℓvE ∇ · Z dˆk I (r, ˆk, t)ˆk ˆk.
Transport mean free path for Magneto-Transverse Light Diffusion: an alternative approach
The existence of six flexes of order five can easily be proved as a consequence of the well-known fact that a function has at least six zeros if its Fourier coefficients ai and bi vanish for i ≤ 2, see [TU 2].

Residuals from a linear fit to the (V −I )0 –Mg2 relation are plotted against Mg2 for galaxies in five different environments: the field, Virgo cluster, Fornax cluster, Centaurus (A3526), and other small groups.

Note that in the current version only the five gluon vertex is used, i.e. no five electroweak gauge boson vertices are taken implemented yet.

Since the temperature F I 2 phase in this mixture is rather range of the Sm C∗ narrow it is difficult to observe all five phases in the dielectric measurements.

Further, by explicit calculation one can show that there are 52 independent real tensorial charges describing the five-tensor sector of the octonionic M-algebra, i.e. they span arbitrary 4 × 4 octonionic-hermitian matrices.

For instance, the five different 29−5 designs are of resolution I I I .
Minimum aberration designs of resolution III
By taking all possible products in which the five generators of (6) are present, we obtain the 32 words (31 if we exclude I ) which form the defining relation of the fraction.

Because submillimeter sources are not removed fifty-five have I − K ′ > 3.5.
The Submillimeter Properties of Extremely Red Objects
We tested whether the signal is arising from a small number of ob jects by eliminating the positive and negative tails: if the two (five) most positive and two (five) most negative sources are removed from the I − K ′ > 4 sample, the signal becomes 1.40 ± 0.14 mJy (1.48 ± 0.15 mJy).
The Submillimeter Properties of Extremely Red Objects
Also, for al l ~n ∈ Nposs, the random variables ∆~n i have the same law: ∀e ∈ E, P(∆~n i = e) = Ve(~n).
