*I doubt that an idiom could be that close to english except if it was a recent Americanism/anglicism.

Ar vartoju netinkamų amerikanizmų?
Pvz.
*Dabar aš esu pilnas ledų ir ("valgęs per daug ledų") nebegaliu valgyti.
*Kame kirčiuotėje(=Kokios kirčiuotės) yra žodis "ledai"? 2-ojoje kirčiuotėje arba 4-ojoje kirčiuotėje(=2-osios ar 4-osios kirčiuotės)? (Prašau, ir į šį klausimą atsakyti)

I'm not sure I understand your questions. I don't know if you made those mistakes (anglicisms) on purpose.

Valgyti per daug yra prisivalgyti (ko?)
Prisivalgiau ledų

ledai yra -as tipo daiktavardis
ledai, ledų, ledams, ledus, ledais, leduose, ledai!

Oops, I meant kirčiuotės, not linksniuotės: therefore is it lẽdai or ledaĩ

I wrote expressions that I was pretty sure were wrong, just wanted to check.

vvvv Labai ačiū už nuorodą ^.^ vvvvvv

Idioms, metaphors and metonymies are more a thing of human cognition that strictly language. In some decades Lithuanians might metaphorically associate the act of sucking to being unpleasant.

I suggest using this idiom when talking to your friends, because you will make them laugh and through this metaphor you will express your American way of comprehending the world :).
