"Blood lust" nghĩa là gì?

'Blood lust' nghĩa là sự si mê chém giết (uncontrollable desire to kill or maim others).

Ví dụ

Don’t let his white beard and diminutive (nhỏ xíu, bé xíu) frame fool you, John Walsh is a stone cold murderer (sát nhân máu lạnh) with an insatiable (không thể thỏa mãn được) blood lust.

He killed his wife with an axe (rìu), bludgeoned (đánh bằng dùi cui) one grandchild with a hammer (búa) and drowned another. Ten years on John Walsh’s blood lust is as strong as ever.

Just when the blood lust seems about sated, along comes news like Monday’s bombshell that the United States and Mexico are about to kiss and make up with a trade deal to replace NAFTA.

As a teenager, William was deluged (tràn ngập) with complaints from anti-fieldsports campaigners after he brought down his first stag (hươu đực, nai đực) with a single shot, prompting the late Labour MP Tony Banks to brand it ‘disgusting’ that a 14-year-old boy was indulging in ‘blood lust’.

Veteran runner Denise McHale finished first overall Sunday in the Yukon River Trail Marathon.

McHale was quick to point out the two bears Morphet encountered while he was the lead runner most likely played a factor in her first-place finish.

It did force him to turn around and as a result he probably ran four or five kilometres more than she did,

...When he peaked back around the corner, they were coming toward him, and he decided running back down the trail to leave the area to warn and join the company of other runners behind him was the best choice at that point.

Morphet said he knows the rule of thumb is not to run away from bears. But with the adrenaline that was pumping through him at that point, he said the bears were not going to catch him.
