Italian Expression of the Day#3

Non avere la piu' pallida idea (of/about something which calls for the use of ne in Italian) literally means Don't have the palest (faintest) idea.

But the English equivalent is Don't have a clue.

E adesso cosa facciamo? Non ne ho la piu' pallida idea.
What are we going to do now? I really don't have a clue .
