    (go) back to the drawing board = φτου και απ' την αρχή, το παίρνω ξανά/το ξαναπιάνω απ' την αρχή, ξανά μανά από την αρχή

    και με άλλα ρήματα, όπως: send, return, head, rush, etc.

    Her headache was back with a vengeance.
    Two months later, arthritis returned with a vengeance and he had no recourse but to go back to the acupuncturist.
    Locals say a lot of this woodland is regrowth that's come back with a vengeance, in the absence of fire and rabbits.

    Μένω ΕυρώπηΣύγκρουση ιδεών, όχι βία και μισαλλοδοξία: δεν οδηγούν πουθενά. (Λ. Κύρκος)Βρε, θα περάσει κι αυτό!
    ΕΝΑ ΝΗΜΑ ΤΗΝ ΗΜΕΡΑ ΤΗΝ ΑΝΙΑ ΚΑΝΕΙ ΠΕΡΑ. Staying hungry, staying foolish. Το διαδίκτυο βλάπτει όταν δεν σκέφτεσαι.
