    Default You wired?

    Questions again. :D

    1) Conversation below.

    "Just answer one question, no bullshit. You didn't switch that diamond, did you?" She asked
    "You wired?" He answered with a grin.
    "Damnit, Pete"
    "No, I didn't switch the diamond."

    What does "You wired?" in below conversation mean?

    2) "There’s something to be said for the fact it saw a little action." What does this exactly mean?

    3) Conversation below.

    A: I have a couple of trucks and one of the first model air-buses. Bunged up pretty bad, but sentimental value there.
    B: Might as well get the full effect.

    What does "Might as well get the full effect" mean?

    4) Pls explain.

    I can't imagine just shrugging it off if I knew he was going to kick. Pretty young for taking the slide, isn't he? Can't have hit even seventy yet. Guy's just cruising into his prime.

    What does "taking the slide" here mean?

    What doesn "cruising into his prime" mean?

    5) We've got a civilian in the crosshair.

    What doesn "in the crosshair" mean?

    6) When you say a man is poster boy look, it's mostly positive, right? I mean that man is pretty handsome, right? Have any negative meaning??

    Thank you! :D

    Are you carrying/hidding on your body under your clothes a tap wire. A wire with a small microphone that transmitts to the police what's being said.

    2) "There’s something to be said for the fact (that) it saw a little action." What does this exactly mean?
    Whatever "it" is, it has had experience/use. 'a little action' refers to battle/heavy use.

    3) Conversation below.

    B: Might as well get the full effect.

    What does "Might as well get the full effect" mean?
    It's old but it's model/brand makes it look good.

    1. What does "taking the slide" here mean?

    2. What doesn "cruising into his prime" mean?
    1. Don't know. Did he die?
    2. Going into his seventies i.e. age? Prime means, best time of life.


    5) We've got a civilian in the crosshair.

    What doesn "in the crosshair" mean?
    The sight on a gun: The lines are very fine, like hairs, and they cross.

    6) When you say a man has poster boy look, it's mostly positive, right? I mean that man is pretty handsome, right? Have any negative meaning?
    It could be positive or negative.

    All the best, :D
