What does it mean to give something spin?

Not literally spin something, I mean when referring to an idea or a concept.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

It's when you make an idea or concept more appealing in some way. Without acutally changing it, usually just in the wording or exmaples used to explain or whatever.

YOu know what spin doctors are?

EDIT: Posters 2 and 3 have the wrong end of the stick.

to give something a spin is to give it a try.


yep.

but i wonder if threadstarter mean spin, as in changing the context of something.

so that it shapes the opinion of someone hearing a quote, but after the "Spin Doctor" has told you what it means. (actually what the doc wants you to think it means.)

So it's when you present something in a way that makes it seem better?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
