"A quick drop and a sudden stop" nghĩa là gì?

'A quick drop and a sudden stop' nghĩa là chết do rơi từ trên cao (nhà cao tầng, vách đá...) xuống đất hoặc do treo cổ (death from either falling from a great height or from hanging); rơi xuống đất chết tốt.

Ví dụ
Actually they would either have the scoop of the century or a quick drop and a sudden stop.

I wouldn't get too close to the edge of that cliff if I were you, you'd have a pretty quick drop and a sudden stop.

Actually, I think there is some merit to capital punishment for white collar crime. The "deterrent" factor of capital punishment provably doesn't work when it comes to violent crime, but I bet you would see a very different outcome if mass fraud could get you a quick drop and a sudden stop.

Some days, examining the evidence does give you that spinning, stomach-sucking feeling you get when leaning too far out a window twenty floors up. It sometimes seems inevitable that, sooner or later, our next step will lead to a quick drop and a sudden stop—on the sharp rocks or pavement below.

Ong đốt vào chỗ nào là đau nhất?

In the 1980s, a man named Justin Schmidt invented the Schmidt pain index, which measured the painfulness of stings from 78 species of insects on a scale of 0 to 4 (the only stings that rated 4 were the bullet ant and the tarantula hawk). Of course, pain is subjective, so Schmidt rated all of the stings himself. In that tradition, the author of this study hypothesized that the pain level of a sting also depends on its location on the body. He tested this hypothesis by — you guessed it — getting stung. A lot. Turns out that the most painful location for being stung by a bee is on the nostril, followed by the lip and the penis. Yup, the penis.

...Sting location was a significant predictor of the pain rating in a linear model (p < 0.0001, DF = 25, 94, F = 27.4). The three least painful locations were the skull, middle toe tip, and upper arm (all scoring a 2.3). The three most painful locations were the nostril, upper lip, and penis shaft (9.0, 8.7, and 7.3, respectively).

Neighbors called police after seeing a naked (khỏa thân) man watering his lawn Wednesday evening. When deputies got there they say he was sitting in his yard drinking a beer - yes - still naked.

According to a press release, 37-year-old Robert Lopez refused to put on clothes when asked, throwing the glass beer bottle at them. The bottle missed, but Lopez continued threatening the deputy, saying "that he would get a gun and shoot him."

With the situation escalating (tình hình leo thang), the deputy called for backup (yểm trợ), and got his rifle (súng trường) from the car for protection. Lopez eventually put on a pair of shorts and went inside, coming back out with a knife with an 8-inch blade (thanh kiếm) that he threw at the deputy...

This may sound weird, but it is real. And at $400, the ‘future of masturbation’ is sold out.

A Japanese manufacturer of disposable male sex toys, Tenga has created a new masturbation (thủ dâm) device – an illusion virtual reality (thực tế ảo) sex suit – that, according to Inside Reality, “can send impulses all over the wearer’s body to make it feel like another human being is touching them.”



...[The device] is worn on the male’s genitals to provide stimulation in a variety of ways. There is the appendage (phần phụ) which sits near the user’s sternum (xương ức) and represents female breasts (ngực đàn bà). The user is able to manipulate and grope (vuốt ve, mơn trớn) the slightly life-like breasts as they feel impulses throughout the rest of their body.

Whether this device will take business from the prostitution (điếm) industry is yet to be seen, but there is no doubt that when this technology improves, sex workers (lao động tình dục) everywhere should be alarmed.

Ứng cử viên đại biểu Quốc hội mua phiếu?

ít nhất một ứng viên đại biểu Quốc hội ở Hàn Quốc bị cáo buộc đã cung cấp cho người cao tuổi thuốc chữa rối loạn cương dương để mua phiếu của họ... :)

nếu bị buộc tội -> 5 năm tù hoặc nộp phạt ~195 triệu đồng,

Elderly men in South Korea have allegedly been given erectile dysfunction drugs to buy their votes in legislative elections, prosecutors said Tuesday, announcing an investigation into the suspected breach.

Vote-buying in South Korea carries a sentence of up to five years in prison or a fine of 10 million won ($8,750).

Anyone found guilty of vote-buying risks being stripped of their election victory, while voters face fines of up to 50 times the value of the cash or gift they received in return for supporting the candidate.

"Quick on the trigger" nghĩa là gì?

'Quick on the trigger' = quick on the draw nghĩa là vảy súng nhanh, và nghĩa khác là rất nhanh/vội vã khi hành động, phản ứng (quick to respond to anything).

Ví dụ
In recent years, it has become commonplace for sharp rallies or “V-bottoms” to form with very little notice to those who aren’t quick on the trigger.

Since the start of the intifada (phong trào ném đá), B’Tselem activists and other witnesses have used cameras to document many instances of Israeli soldiers whose fingers were too quick on the trigger.

We wanted a place where men could discuss masculine topics without facing the same public shaming outcry that happens on social media sites – feminists are quick on the trigger to try to take down anything they consider wrong … Milo Yiannopoulos lost his verified status on Twitter because of his views on masculinity. It’s a big topic that has become taboo (điều cấm kị) in our culture.
