Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Deer"

The meaning of "Deer" in various phrases and sentences

Q: Что значит I tried to remember that as my deer bounced and babged over dirt roads the government had promised but never quite gotten around to paving?
A: I'm not sure what "deer" refers to, but maybe it's the vehicle you are driving? Also,"badged" isn't a correct word in this context.

In any case, it means that at some time in the past you were told something that contradicts your current experience. And you are now speaking ironically, saying you will try to remember that thing you were told.

So - maybe the government previously promised to pave the roads. Now, you are driving on an unpaved road, your vehicle is bouncing, and you are trying to remember that they previously promised to pave it.

" ... never quite gotten around to (something)" is very common grammar, but it's a little complicated. It means someone had the intention of doing something, but they still haven't done it. For example, if somebody asks me "Have you finished fixing the car?" I might say "I haven't gotten around to it yet." It implies that I have been busy doing other things, but I intend to do it. "never quite" just adds some emphasis, and implies they probably won't do it.

This is pretty advanced grammar, please let me know if you need more explanation or examples.
Q: Что значит The deer was probably not in a lot of pain, it was in pure shock and most likely died several minutes later. That’s why when you lose an arm you will probably have less pain as to when you lose your thumb.?

Q: Что значит So you avoided hitting a deer while driving only to run into a tree?" "Yes." "So it goes."?
A: The saying "So it goes" itself basically means "that's life", "that's how it (life) is", "C'est la vie", "life goes on", etc.

It is also a reference because it comes from Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five. Vonnegut is a famous author who wrote many satirical novels. The quote is about fatalism, stoicism and the acceptance of things in life, not being afraid and moving forward.

It basically all means "oh well, what can you do? Let's make the best of it and move on."

A: Herd is a collectve noun and a verb.
The group (herd) of deer are being driven ( hearded) south.
Q: Что значит I felt like a deer in love lights?
A: The phrase you're trying to say is "I feel like a deer in head lights". This refers to when deer look at the bright lights of a car and are too shocked to move. So you feel so shocked you can't move or react
