I'm not sure "on the nose" means what I think it means

@codl it can either mean an exact amount of something (altho not many people use it like that) or it can mean something that's not very subtle i guess? it's hard to explain exactly

@internetwolf ok thats what i thought but i looked it up in a dictionary and it had only the first definition and i was like oh no i have deeply misunderstood words

@codl @internetwolf we've never heard it used to mean an exact amount of something (though I have heard it (as "yeah that's pretty on the nose") used to mean "that's pretty much exactly right")

@Felthry @codl yeah that's what I meant I'm just not very good at words
