    The lights are on but nobody's home. (Used to suggest that a person lacks intelligence or awareness.)

    Re: What are some of your favorite or most-used idioms?

    I like to turn them into a sort of just-for-fun quiz, for example:

    Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    A. Don't waste water.
    B. I hope your child will be successful.
    C. Don't force your child to do something.
    D. Don't miss an opportunity just because of some parts you don't like.
