"Son of Belial" nghĩa là gì?

"Son of Belial" = con của Belial -> nghĩa là người độc ác/xấu xa. Belial là con quỷ, tên khác của Satan.

Ví dụ
Etrigan himself is the demon son of Belial, another demon, whose half-brother is none other than Merlin the Wizard (phù thủy).

She was teaching the art class today and a little after 8 AM a demon-possessed (quỷ nhập) Son of Belial enters the room and starts shooting… killing 8 students and 2 teachers.

Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined (xác định) against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.

"Son of a gun" -> nghĩa là người xấu tính/khó chịu, câu này có thể dùng để khích lệ, khen ngợi, nghĩa khác là tình huống khó khăn, khó giải quyết.

Ví dụ
Campbell Rawiller remembers it like it was yesterday … being picked up on John Singleton’s broad shoulders and a nearby security guard shooting him a filthy look. The scene was Royal Randwick, 2012, and the son of a gun was 10 years old.

In the climactic verse, Daniels sang: “The devil bowed (cúi đầu) his head because he knew that he’d been beat (đánh bại). “He laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny’s feet. “Johnny said, `Devil just come on back if you ever want to try again. “I told you once you son of a gun, I’m the best that’s ever been.”

This year is no different. The 5-10 Barea has seen his playing time dip somewhat, but when he’s been on the court, he still gets the job done, averaging 7.5 points and 3.8 assists in just 15 minutes per game. At 36, he’s still a pest (tai họa) and a competitive son of a gun that the Mavericks value in spot situations.

"Not care a straw" nghĩa là gì?

"Not care a straw" -> nghĩa là không thèm quan tâm, để tâm.

Ví dụ
“I don’t care a straw for your newspaper articles (bài báo),” the head of the corrupt Tammany Hall political machine reportedly said of Nast’s employer, Harper’s Weekly, before eventually being arrested and convicted of fraud (lừa đảo).

The guy is in cahoot (thông đồng) with his pet foreign investors, to exploit, impoverish (làm kiệt sức) and enslave Ugandans. To Mr. M7's sadism; the 86% poverty of Ugandans, which he mockingly attribute to sleep; is for him progress. Therefore granting minimum wage will be a regress. In other words, the man does not love nor care a straw about Ugandans.

His fierce (gay gắt) attachment to the here and now and the body was shocking in a culture where music was supposed to lead one upwards to the spiritual. “I was born right – I don’t have to 'develop’,” he once wrote. “I am happy thru and thru: happy in my race, happy in my art... I don’t care a straw about god and eternity (vĩnh hằng) because I am quite complete as I am.”
