why would it gross me out? you're not looking at actually blood versus water, are you? and you're not shoving blood in someone's face.

Actually, yes. For some reason i always think of like shark attacks when i hear that. . . or the time i cut my foot at the beach.
Its an icky expression.

No, my grandmother ALWAYS says that.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 12:32:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
No...I don't actually think of it literally...
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 12:46:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
How much thicker could it be, really?
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 3:44:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. What does gross me out is when they do a blood test at the doctor's and they take this colossal amount of blood.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 12:00:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because blood is no thicker than water - until it starts to congeal. Hehehe.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 12:01:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. Should it?
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 12:10:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've never really thought about it before.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 3:21:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'v never even heart that expression, whats it supposed to mean? and it hasn't grossed me out.

Maybe its just me then.....

It grosses me out.

It makes me thirsty.


Mmm blood.

I LOVE BLOOD! Who doesn't?
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 9:44:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Physically, blood IS thicker than water - the blood cells make it thicker.

However, what the expression means is that family (blood) is more important than anyone else (water). You take care of your family first, even if it hurts other people. You betray your boss, you betray your friends, you betray anyone rather than hurt/betray your family.

The Chinese are very much followers of this philosophy.

The expression doesn't "gross me out", although sometimes the implementation of it (family before anyone else) does.

It's weak phrase to begin with, I can see the blood metaphor, but how is the rest of the world water?? That's rather disturbing if you start to think of it so literally, I mean you and your family have the bloodline, but what, are you swapping saliva with the rest of the planet???
