Guessing here
Hot dog = slang for a bright, quick thinker
Notion = an idea or thought

Nice link

Before you ask the front suspension forks on my bike are a model called Wotan.
They are stiffer and have less travel than the originals, which suits me better. I tend not to go over the top of the handle bars so often now.

I was thinking more along the lines of forked lightning bolts.

Bad idea - this thread is the place to ask for explanations - sometimes what the poster may think is going to fool us all turns out to be blindingly obvious, and others one that the poster thinks is obvious is so obscure we all end up with splinters from scratching our heads in frustration.

At least I haven't resorted to using my native Scots yet as that would really confuse ay-folk

I was wondering if the response to Jefferson would be Airplane, Starship, George, or Weezy.

I'm proud of myself for not saying Enterprise in response to Starship.

But now I wish I'd said Titanic instead of Voyager.

Are hyphens allowed?

If not ignore my "Self-propelled".

For some words it is debateable. i.e depending which dictionary you look in, it can be Busbar, bus-bar or bus bar.
