'Make a splash' nghĩa là thu hút nhiều sự chú ý.

Ví dụ
Local car scene: Why the Suzuki Swift is yet to make a splash.

A sponsored Assisted Swimathon made a splash for charities at Newport Pagnell's Middleton Pool on Saturday.

After years of building up and knocking on the door, the Peabody girls hockey team finally made a splash in the postseason.

State Representative Charles Blake's presentation of House Bill 1487 made a splash as the legislator pushed for changing a star on the flag that currently represents confederacy (liên bang) to commemorating (kỷ niệm) Native Americans who'd lived in Arkansas.

The picture shows the faint but unmistakable (có thể nhận ra rõ ràng, hiển nhiên, không thể nhầm lẫn) outline of a 60ft phallus (tượng dương vật) on the playing field, just yards from the nearest building at the school in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire.

It appears that the image was created by wearing away the grass to reveal the earth beneath. It is not clear when the satellite image was captured.

Colin Sim uploaded a screenshot of Google Maps image which clearly shows the male genitalia on the field. He sarcastically commented: “Not at all sure what this is meant to be in Stonehaven.”

lượt truy cập đến trang web khiêu dâm pornhub tăng đột biến khi chính phủ mỹ đóng cửa :D

This week, Pornhub.com issued a press release (thông  cáo báo chí) with traffic data (dữ liệu truy cập) from recent weeks (những tuần gần đây), showing that visits to the website have increased in the Washington D.C. area since the government shutdown (chính phủ đóng cửa) began. The data also revealed (tiết lộ) that there has been a nationwide (toàn quốc) increase in the number of people visiting Pornhub on weekdays during the shutdown.

...The data was featured on Pornhub’s Insights page, where the site shows traffic data for significant times and places. The site has previously found that traffic plummets (lao thẳng xuống, rơi thẳng xuống, tụt) on election night (đêm bầu cử) and following the release of popular video games (trò chơi phổ biến/được ưa thích).

Pornography (sách báo khiêu dâm) is one of the most popular things that nobody seems to talk about. Thankfully, the viewership data is available to give us an interesting look at both our culture (văn hóa) and our psychology (tâm lý).
