    another idiom

    What exactly does "another one bites the dust" mean and how would we say it in another words? Would another idiom come close to it?

    bite the dust (informal)

    to fail or to stop existing
    Three hundred more people lost their jobs in the same region when another firm bit the dust.
    She can't make it on Saturday? Oh, well, another good idea bites the dust!

    (humorous) to die
    Two Hollywood stars of the thirties have recently bitten the dust.


    kick the bucket (informal)
    to die
    Didn't you hear? He kicked the bucket. Had a heart attack, I think.

    Hope that helps.
