and this second one...i need to take a deep breath...ok, it's "deep SEEDED" as in a seed deep within the ground that you can't get to and change what's growing out of it.not "deep seated"  ffs(thanks for that saying) what the hell is a deep seat??? "i'm sorry sir,it was a really deep seated problem. i mean that seat was REALLY deep".what, it was meaningful? i mean we even have the saying "deeply rooted problem". that's where it comes from.how am i to trust a news article that can't get that straight.i'm seeing "deep seated" all over the place...maybe i'm wrong here...but i don't think so...i guess this stuff shouldn't bother me, oh but how it does...cheers-Davey

Sorry, but I think you are wrong here Davey. For me, the phrase has always been deep seated. Dictionary.com says it dates from 1741

I'd agree - use of that term is pretty deep seated  ;)

Davey, I think you've been singing "put the seed into the ground......." a few too many times we think   8)

People from Ontario would pronounce seated as seeded.

No chance of deep seeded becoming engrained then?

Mark and the rest of the people, i refer you to the same link. 1. it's says originated 1740 something...and that's all the detail we get? dodgy i.e. where's the back story"well two guys were hanging around and one guy fell into a really deep seat.the other man ran around the town yelling 'we have a really deep seated problem here people!'and the rest is history" ?...2. it says in the definition: similar to deeply rooted(as in a seed). tell me when was the last time a "seat" had a "root"? i mean a seed IS the root really...c'mon people wake up here.you've been had... 3. in yahoo answers on the left of the link(if you scroll down) i am corroborated. somebody's been pronouncing it wrong for years and there's been a latter day wiki coverup to save face.it's good to know that this didn't happen in my lifetime.that's what really bothered me...let me just have a little more fun here:explain the origin and meaning to me please( listing a year doesn't cut the mustard).i'm on to something here.it's gonna crack me up hearing your explanations(or it's going to put some sense into me;i'll take either)...i'll try: "It's a deeply-seated problem" is it deep within someone's pants? is that why it's so serious? "it's deep within the seat i mean this problem is really lodged really far down there i can't get to it from here.i need a special tool please help" if the situation was "shallow seated" would that be good, or the opposite extreme? "medium seated"? even still it depends on the size of the sitter...i mean really:"i'm sorry sir,but because of the deepness of this seat over here,our WHOLE SITUATION is in jeopardy"...you can't trust everything you read on the web...but again i'm not taking anyone to task here,if indeed this has been going on since the mid 1700's...one last question. which of these three sayings doesn't make sense? "deeply rooted" "deep seeded" "deep seated"BINGO! the first two are obviously connected.the third is "way off the Mark"...love and peace-Davey

Virgin places don't mean a thing to people who never bring their hearts along.

One stop beyond...

That's bordering on madness....

We always used to say "They're one on from East Ham" and amazingly the person who we were referring to (it was always the same person) would say "What?". Never did get the meaning....

...uh hi...i just want to say i looked up the meaning of seat.it could mean base i.e. "base of the problem" or something like that...i'm sorry people, i got a little too hyped up.there could feasably be independant origins of these sayings etc. i ran deep seeded/seated and my bag/bad by my handball partner yesterday. he agreed on deep seeded 'cause he said it was more natural.but he took me to task on "my bag".he said it was my bad all the way.i still don't see how there could be A bad,or how you could have one. but "my bad" does seem to have won in the pantheon by a long shot.no one says my bag anymore(if they ever did on a large scale). i feel it should be "my bad apple" or something like that ...in other news i'm happy to report that my fellow guitar playing band mate was regaled with the roundhouse movie yesterday evening(after falling asleep at the end the last time he was over), and he is now solidly a fan.Deke reminded him of a 70's  tv newscaster.i also wore my purple Micky shirt out last night to where some friends were bartending, dj spinning ,and having a birthday, and for one of the first times in my life in a bar situation, i got lucky...people liked the shirt too...there will be another band listening session later this afternoon/evening at our newly christened bachelor pad, where the regaling will continue...-peace everybody-Davey...back to you Bob...

My bad is believed to have originated in the 1600s having first surfaced in print in Shakespeare's 12th sonnet:

"So you o'er-green, my bad, my good allow?"

However the current widespread worldwide use seems to date from 1995 when Alicia Silverstone's character used the phrase 'My bad' several times in her movie “Clueless”.

We haven't though.   Seat is a make of car.  Spanish, I think. (The country, not that red liquorice yuch). Maybe our Joan can shed some light? 

I'm still working......... Not good.
