"A flight of fantasy" nghĩa là gì?

"A flight of fancy" or "a flight of fantasy" nghĩa là một khái niệm hoặc ý tưởng phi thực tế, xa tầm với.

Ví dụ
Companies are pouring millions of pounds into developing flying taxis, but is this money well spent or just a flight of fancy?

Historically, this capability appeared to be a fantastical one, a flight of fancy akin (hơi giống) to that of the mythical quest for the Holy Grail. But thanks to innovations in the modern cloud era, the concept of one login for all IT resources is closer than you might think.

As someone who has an interest in how far you can stretch the boundaries of bad taste and still find things funny, I was especially keen to see the film Jojo Rabbit, a flight of fancy set in Nazi Germany that seeks to use the most desperate of human circumstances for comic effect.

"Slap-happy" nghĩa là gì?

"Slap-happy" nghĩa là tiêu dao tự tại, vô tư lự, thảnh thơi; say đòn, no đòn, nhừ đòn.

Ví dụ
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says that Iran delivered a “slap to the US’s image as a superpower.” Shooting missiles (tên lửa) and not hitting anything major makes you a bit slap happy.

So, Brooke may be slap-happy, but she’s not nearly as devilish (hiểm ác) as Quinn Fuller. The blonde might throw cake or mud wrestle, but her dark nemesis is capable of outright homicide. And right now, she hates Brooke.

I rewatched that game a few months ago for our “It Just Meant More” series that we do on The SDS Podcast, and I often thought about what that would have been like as a UGA fan to experience those closing moments. Up until that tipped pass was caught in bounds, it felt like this epic UGA comeback. I can’t begin to imagine how deflating that would’ve been to experience in a slap-happy, 3 a.m. state of mind.
