I have 2 questions, hope someone can answer ^^
1. What's the meaning of "什么时候才是个头啊"? I have a clue, but I'm not sure. Is it the same as "What time would this end"?
2. How to say dramatic, in for example "dont be so dramatic"

Cool, thanks alot for the reply. "至于吗" would express the same as "何必嘛", right? For the second question I also asked a chinese person today, but I didn't got any exact translation. But I guess in most cases saying 你别太过分了, or 你别太夸张了 would do it.
I just saw the word "小题大做" on baidu, anyone know if this word is commonly used (?).
To be honest, I've never heard of 何必嘛, but google search is usually a good way to find out. I typed in 何必 什么意思 in google search and I found http://zh-cn.oldict.com/%E4%BD%95%E5%BF%85/
In terms of 小题大做, I don't whether it's commonly used, but once again google is very reliable for a translation. Seeing it is a 成语, I would guess that it wouldn't be too common, but let's wait for a native speaker to come to our rescue :)
