Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "David"

The meaning of "David" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does David's inquisitive spirit mean?
A: It means that David is a naturally curious person.

“Inquisitive” means someone who asks questions, or someone who is curious about things.

David’s “spirit” is referring to his personality, or the way he is usually.

Example: “She noticed David’s ‘questioning’ (inquisitive) ‘personality’ (spirit).”

In this case, spirit is used because it gives more feeling to the word. Personality is kind of bland, so using spirit captures how David is, and we can imagine the life in his eyes that goes with his spirit (how he is when he asks a question).

A: That means David’s reliable woman.
Someone that he trusts with the highest regard. Whenever someone says that a person is their right hand person, that’s their best friend for life~

Q: What does David isn't in very good shape. mean?

Q: What is the difference between she got married to David and She was married to David. ?
A: In the standard sense, they basically mean the same thing. "She was married" sounds kind of passive, so it could mean she was forced to marry David... but that'd be an unusual usage.

If you stress the word "was" it would mean that, in the past, she was married to David but is no longer.
Q: What is the difference between "He gives David the evil-eye during the whole lesson, though." and "He gives David the evil-eye during the whole lesson." ?
A: Here it infers reasons against the previous sentence.

It's similar to starting your sentence with but. However beginning your sentence with but is not grammatically correct. So instead you say your sentence then connect it to the aforementioned sentence by using 'though'.

'I like Paul, the new boy at school'
'He gives David the evil-eye during the whole lesson, though, and David is your best friend.' = but he gives David the evil eye the whole lesson and David is your best friend.

The first is grammatically correct the second is not.

Q: David Bowie's "Life on Mars", the lyrics, "It's on America's tortured brow That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow".
1) What is "America's tortured brow"?
2) Has Mickey Mouse become a caw? or Has he raised a caw?
A: "brow" is the forehead. "America's tortured brow" seems to have the image of America frowning and being unhappy.

Mickey Mouse has grown up into a cow. "Mickey Mouse" is a symbol of American culture and this suggests it has turned from something cute into a cow.

This is poetry, so it's not exactly specific. : )
Q: This is about Mr. David Blaine who has the world record of holding breath for 17 minutes.
He made a speech at TEDTalks. Around the end of speech, he was talking about some boy who talked to him in NYC.
The following his talk:
I came to NYC the next day (one day after he got the world record), I am walking out of the Apple store. And this kid walks up to me He’s like “Yo D” I’m like ‘Yeah’.
The boy said “If you really held your breath that long, why’d you come out water dry”. I was like “what?” And that’s my life.


I don’t understand the boy’s question: If you really held your breath that long, why’d you come out water dry.
Could anybody please explain it for me?
A: Thanks, now I understand your question better. Here is what the boy said:

“Yo, D: If you really held your breath that long, why did you come out of the water dry?”

Another way of saying this is:

“Yo, D: If you were ACTUALLY under water for so long, how come you didn’t look very wet when you came out of the tank?”

The boy believes that David Blaine has tricked the audience, because he does not appear to be wet enough. Perhaps the water tank was constructed so that he could still breathe?

If you go back and watch the video, look closely at David Blaine’s hair when they pull him out of the tank. My hair is short, too. When it is wet, it hangs down around my face. So why does his hair still look styled?

Maybe the boy is right! 😱
