hahaha. it's not boring actually but it's weird if we use them in daily conversations, moreover english is not our official languange spoken in Indonesia . D. if u are a movie-holics and often watch hollywood product, u can easily find the words above hehehe..

Most of them in conversation. For academic writing, depends. A history essay might use some of them. A thesis paper in physics should not.

Academic writing also has some idioms that are rarely found in day-to-day conversation.

Ergo, quid pro quo, post hoc ergo propter hoc, mnemonics, memetic, stat!, delta (Δ), anthropic principle (strong and weak), proof (math), Schrodinger's Cat, Turing Machine, Chinese Room, Philosopher's Dilemma, Malthusian, game theory (it's related, but not exactly what you think), Prisoner's Dilemma, evolution and natural selection, event horizon, lasing/to lase (actually, not an idiom but a new word), standard deviation, etc.

All of the above can be found via your favorite search engine.

may i add some?

i oftenly heard some idiom called "black and blue"
i don't really know its mean, but i asked some friend of mine, he said that black and blue refers to bruised face....

for ex : i had a terrible night, i've been knocked out, beat down, black and blue (if i fall back down - rancid)

I often watch any English-speaking movie, it helps me to understand how they pronounce english word properly;then if u have time u can join any english club in ur city or town, i think they will openly welcome u. D . what else ya??? hmm use grammar in ur daily conversation!. It really helps u. oh ya i also like listening to any english song. there are tons of new vocabularies u can find in it. D
