Are you knuckling down for revision etc? Well actually I don't really care. Rather I mention it because I just found out the expression comes from the game of marbles. In the game of marbles the knuckle has to be placed on the ground whilst playing and as it's such an important rule the expression knuckle down has become synonymous with applying yourself to something diligently.
I love little bits of rubbish trivia like that…I don't care if you do or not.
