    Re: explanation of some expressions

    Welcome to the forums.

    As always, context will help. However, basically:

    Ramble off > become distracted from the matter in hand

    To be hauled before > brought in front of someone/something: He was hauled before the court to be charged with theft.

    To launch a company > to start a company.

    street culture > the customs, idioms, and behaviour of those who are disaffected from mainstream society.

    to count on > to be ably to rely on someone : I count on you to support me in my argument.
