Can you please help me out with this one: "to be heavy on the wire" What in the world does this mean ???
Your help will be much appreciated!
It's used mainly in German forums, and I've found an explanation from someone:
Perhaps it was something like an impossible translation of
the German "schwer auf Draht sein" into "to be heavy on the wire".
It should mean, to be top concentrated, highly ambitioned and best
Perhaps: intense, focussed.
OK, I've found another site:
schwer auf Draht sein to be heavy on wire meaning: to react very fast
Anonymous:You are on fire man! Thanks a lot!
Marius HancuI don't think this is an English idiom.
Anonymous:It means to be cool.
Fronzi is very heavy on the wire. When ever he snaps his fingers women appear.
Anonymous:As mentioned, it is a German expression which means somebody really "knows their stuff" or is very "ambitious". It's not particularly easy to translate, but I think you understand now.
People are waiting to help.
