"See a mote in another's eye" nghĩa là gì?

'To see a mote in another's eye' nghĩa là nhìn thấy khuyết điểm của người dù chỉ bằng hạt bụi (mà không nhìn thấy khuyết điểm của mình).

Ví dụ
People, let's not get off-topic here. This is about vile Christian terrorists who engaged in sick act towards their own son.
-> Now let's count how many Muslims kill their son because he is gay. See how that works? Sir, you have seen a mote in the eye of a Christian when there is a beam in the eye of Muslims.

We must not forget that the EP tries to intervene in the process of the Council as an actor with full competence. This clearly runs counter to the Council Legal Service’s opinion which states there is no role for the EP under TFEU in this phase of the Article 7 procedure. Is rule of law really important here? Or better: you can see a mote in another’s eye yet cannot see a beam in your own?

After the events of Aug. 11 and 12, the world, or rather, that part of the world that devotes itself to the moral instruction of others, has told us that we must face our racist past (quá khứ phân biệt chủng tộc), purge (thanh trừng, làm sạch, thanh lọc) ourselves of vestiges (dấu vết, di tích) of white supremacy (da trắng thượng đẳng) and otherwise cleanse our souls. I wish that the moralists (nhà luân lý học, nhà đạo đức học) would look to themselves and begin some of their hoped-for reform at home. As the rabbi says, “You see a mote in your neighbor’s eye but miss the log in your own.”

He’s guilty of nothing more than hitting the anatomical lottery (xổ số giải phẫu học).

An accused subway sicko was acquitted of touching himself on a morning N train after the defense argued the well-endowed defendant was merely adjusting his prodigious (phi thường, kỳ lạ, to lớn, đồ sộ) package through his pants.

...straphanger (hành khách đứng trên xe bus (tàu hỏa...) tay bám vào cái quai treo ở trần, người đi xe bus bằng vé tháng) Alethia Richardson, 32, contacted police after shooting a videotape that allegedly showed Kolaci engaged in hand-to-gland combat (= a very vigorous masturbation session! :).

Richardson turned the camera on herself at one point to express her revulsion (sự khiếp sợ).

“Disrespect. Nasty (dơ dáy, kinh tởm, dâm ô). Pervert (biến thái),” she said into her phone camera before refocusing on Kolaci. Prosecutors agreed, arguing that Kolaci was indeed pleasuring himself.

But at no point did the defendant ever unzip or expose himself.

Defense attorney Cary London, in addition to arguing his client’s innocence (vô tội), charged the accuser was guilty of paying too much attention to Kolaci’s crotch. :))

...A free house may sound like a scam. But Japan faces an unusual property problem: it has more homes than people to live in them.

In 2013, there were 61 million houses and 52 million households, according to the Japan Policy Forum. And the situation is poised to get worse.

Japan's population is expected to decline from 127 million to about 88 million by 2065, according to the National Institute of Population and Social Security, meaning even fewer people will need houses. As young people leave rural areas for city jobs, Japan's countryside has become haunted by deserted "ghost" houses, known as "akiya."

It's predicted that by 2040, nearly 900 towns and villages across Japan will no longer exist -- and Okutama is one of them. In that context, giving away property is a bid for survival.

"Strip to the buff" nghĩa là gì?

'Strip to the buff' nghĩa là cởi hết quần áo, trần truồng.

Ví dụ
My skinny-dipping takes place either in very remote places, or after dark, which is my favourite thing in the whole world. (Although I confess that the news the Ukip bankroller Arron Banks also regards a moonlit beach as an opportunity to strip to the buff did take the edge off my pleasure for a week or two).

Fred Earl calls himself "a perennial gardener, someone who gardens for ever". Certainly, the Dunedin man and his wife, Gaynor seem to show no signs of slowing down, even at 87. One of their bravest exploits recently was to strip to the buff to be photographed for a fundraising calendar for the Dunedin Gardening Club (DGC), of which they are the longest-serving members, having joined in 1980.

The other outstanding act is David O'Mer, an aerialist (diễn viên đu dây, diễn viên nhào lộn trên không) who rises from his bath and twirls aloft clad only in wet jeans in cockily (vênh váo tự mãn) breathtaking and charmingly droll parody (trò chế nhạo, khôi hài, bắt chước hài hước để châm biếm) of those over-sexualised denim adverts. Yes, sex is strongly on the agenda in this show – but it's all good clean smut (lời nói tục tĩu, chuyện dâm ô), even Ursula Martinez's strip to the buff at each stage of which she makes a red handkerchief disappear and then re-materialise in less and less mentionable places.

Teensy-weensy (trẻ con) nghĩa là rất nhỏ, chút ít, tẹo nào.

Ví dụ
Doesn't he have a teeny-weeny twinge of conscience?

Teensy Weensy Tax Cut May Be On Horizon for Massachusetts.

I played a teensy-weensy bit of RAGE 2 at Gamescom and it was cool

Microbiologist Sally Warring wants you to admire the teensy-weensy microbes coating our natural and man-made worlds.

Hows abouts a teensy-weensy bit of spacetime friction that would steal energy from the photon and simultaneously heat up the space time--causing spacetime BB emission and thermal expansion?
