    Default a few questions

    Hi everyone,

    i have got a few questions:

    1] is in english an idiom resembling someone that is false a kind of animal or anything else? E.g.What do you usually say when you say: "He is false like..."

    2] what is a noun of the verb "induce"?

    3] I still look for an expression [interjection] by which i can imply when someone is absolutelly stunned by for instance new interiors of our store they didnt expect...
    Something like: "You are gogling you eyes, arent you?"


    thank you

    1) there's also "two-faced" although that refers more to a hypocrite.
