Hi my EnglishForward friends,

I just finished translation of one episode of my favourite TV Show to cut my teeth in english and I came across there to very cool idiom "let the chips fall where they may."... I heard that in this sentense:

I'm gonna tell it to the private investigator and let the chips fall where they may.

This said an soldier, who decided to the tell the truth, about how his friend really died. I have paraphrased this sentense as

I'm gonna tell it to the private investigator, I don't care.

Anyway, I'm just curious, I what situations is this idiom being used? Can you describe the situations where is better to use this mentioned idiom and where, vice versa, something easier...like I don't care or and see what happends....I'm sure that there exists a lot of substitutions for this idiom....

Many thanks in advance

with regards

Hmm, I don't have an example of contextual use ( I mean where it can be used) but it may mean I will explain everything, there will not be anything left unknown.

Thanks Marius, that page gave me exactly what I wanted. I didn't know about www.answers.com page. I tried to find there some other idioms and the description of them seems to me much better compare to thefreedictionary.com page. Thanks for tip!

Other idiom sites, perhaps not so good in terms of searching, but ...

"Let the chips fall where they may" roughly means, let whatever consequences there are (to this revelation) happen
