    Hi,

    It's actually "for what it's worth," and it means that what follows may or may not have any real use or value to the listener, but I'll say it anyways.

    "For what it's worth, I'm sorry I pushed you." (You may or may not find value in my apology, but I want to apologize anyways)
    "For what it's worth, I think you're a great person." (Maybe somebody else said you're a bad person, but I think you're good, and you may or may not believe me or value my opinion)

    (not a teacher, just a language lover)

    Hi,

    Your sentence is a bit strange. "In a conspiracy" and "in cahoots" mean approximately the same thing. So what is a "cahoots conspiracy"?
