"Go pound sand" nghĩa là gì?

"Go pound sand" = đi nghiền cát đi -> nghĩa là (sai ai, đuổi ai) đi làm điều vô nghĩa.

Ví dụ

Charles, why don't you go pound sand instead of coming around here hassling me about my business?

Drop boxes should be monitored around the clock, DeSantis said. The Secretary of State advised county elections offices to monitor drop boxes 24/7 ahead of the 2020 election, but not every county followed that guidance. "Some of them just said go pound sand," DeSantis said.

"Creep up on" -> nghĩa là lén lút tiếp cận, xâm phạm.

Ví dụ
“It wasn’t just one or two girls hitting today, it was down the lineup,” Amory coach Jessica Seger said. “This is what I have expected out of them. We just have to roll from one game to the other. Hamilton is good, and they are going to hit. I told our girls we celebrated (ăn mừng) too early, and that kind of amped them up. We have to take care of us because good teams like that can creep up on you.”

Because of the sly way it can cause taxes to increase, it is often referred to as a stealth (lén lút) tax. Many people are unaware of the tax and therefore do not plan for it or see it coming. You can ensure this tax does not just “creep up” on your clients by ensuring they plan for it ahead of time.

If you can vape Delta-8 and feel its effects almost immediately, there has to be a way for it to creep up on you as well!  Eighty Six Brand's Delta-8 Gummies are a surefire (chắc chắn) way to experience just that! Between Apple Jade, Citrus Blast, Midnight Melon, and Orange Bang, you now have the ability to experience all that Delta-8 THC has to offer from just a cute little gummy bear.

Anh giỡn chúng tôi đấy à?

khi bị khám tới háng, gã trai 20 tuổi người florida giải thích với cảnh sát thứ cộm trong quần là cu, nhưng ko phải, đó là khẩu súng lục glock 23... :)
It was when the police pat (vỗ nhẹ) down reached his groin (háng) region that Michael Phillips offered an explanation (lời giải thích) for the hard item in his underwear (quần lót).

“That’s my dick (cu),” the 20-year-old Florida Man told a deputy with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

But it was not, in fact, Phillips's dick, according to an arrest report.

Phillips, who was a passenger in a stolen 2015 Chevrolet Equinox that got pulled over Saturday night in St. Petersburg, was actually packing a Glock 23 holding a magazine (ổ đạn, kho vũ khí) with 22 rounds.

According to the gun’s manufacturer, the Glock has a four-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.36 inches.

After being read his rights, Phillips reportedly copped to owning the gun in his drawers. Phillips said he received the Glock as a gift, and carried the semi-automatic pistol (khẩu súng lục tự động) “for protection.”

"On your hunkers" có hunkers là hông -> cụm từ này nghĩa là ngồi xổm. 

Ví dụ
We started off with a stretch (dãn cơ) in the crouch position, or as we might’ve said way back in primary school ‘down on your hunkers’. It’s one thing getting in the position but holding it as the teacher walks around the room checking on everyone becomes hard work, very quickly.

Scrolling through Instagram recently a hashtag kept catching my eye #thighbrow. I became intrigued (tò mò) and frantically began googling. Turns out the thigh brow is what happens when, in a bathing suit, you're sitting pretty much on your hunkers or simply slightly leaning forward, and two creases (vết nhăn) appear;

First and foremost is that you get down on your hunkers and eyeball children, you never stand up like the BFG pointing a big bony (xương xẩu) finger in their face and telling them to sit down.

"Close of play" nghĩa là gì?

"Close of play" = hạ màn -> nghĩa là kết thúc trận đấu, kết thúc một ngày làm việc. 

Ví dụ
Fourth Test, close of play, day two - Rishabh Pant century turns tide for India against England. Ben Stokes put in a Herculean shift in the heat of Ahmedabad but Rishabh Pant’s remarkable century and the folly (điên rồ) of England’s imbalanced attack left India in full control after day two of the fourth Test.

After losing three crucial (quan trọng) wickets early in the game, it seemed like England had an upper hand. However, thanks to Washington Sundar and Pant’s contribution (đóng góp), India got back into the game at the close of play.

Captain Kraigg Brathwaite fell just short of a century as West Indies Brathwaite XI, in pursuit of West Indies Chase XI first day total of 328, were 242 for 5 at the close of play on the second day.

Marine transportation, air transportation and mining-linked issues comprised those that declined the most by the close of play. Throughout the day, the U.S. dollar remained steady in the upper 106 yen range as sharp overnight rises on Wall Street spurred investors' risk appetite (khao khát), said some dealers.

'thấy nhớ' bạn bè và người thân, người dân toronto, canada gửi... phân bò cho nhau (như một trò đùa) :D
Calling all Toronto residents (cư dân) who miss your friends right now — forget flowers and send them a parcel of poop to show them you really care.

For the small price of $4.20 plus tax, you can send a package filled with nearly 30 grams of fresh, stinking cow poo (phân bò tươi nguyên, đang bốc mùi) to that special someone courtesy of Battleshits (công ty 'trận đánh phân bò').

According to the Toronto company, which launched in early September, it's 2021, so yes, professional poop delivery services (dịch vụ vận chuyển phân chuyên nghiệp) are totally a thing.

Run by two Toronto university students (sinh viên) and longtime friends (bạn thân lâu năm) — who asked to remain anonymous in this article — Battleshits started as "an eco netural business which would profit from the recycling of something cheaply attainable to us."

"By the handful" nghĩa là gì?

"By the handful" = đầy tay, cả nắm tay, cả vốc -> nghĩa là rất nhiều, số lượng lớn.

Kelley, the governor’s spokesperson, said the difference in the length of questions is “not something she would have guessed,” and said data could be skewed (xuyên tạc) by the handful of male reporters with extremely long Q&A times.

“Destroy them. They’re death,” one kid is heard saying. “Not all at once!” a man also shouts (hét) as kids grab face masks by the handful and toss (ném) them into the fire.

Leave it to baseball to go back to a dual (đấu đôi), unnecessary system that is totally out of touch with the times and only favored by the handful of pitchers who have some idea what they’re doing with a bat in their hands.

cục an toàn thực phẩm châu âu nói rằng: giun-như-dòi an toàn để ăn...
If it’s true that we “eat first with our eyes,” then you may want to keep them shut for this meal.

The European Food Safety Agency, under the jurisdiction of the European Union, has deemed yellow mealworms safe for human consumption — and is encouraging us to do the same.

The announcement (thông báo) opens the door for (mở cánh cửa, "bật đèn xanh") the bug-based food market (thị trường thực phẩm các loài bọ), such as insect-enriched breads, pasta, cookies, candies and more.

Mealworms — not actually worms, but the larvae (ấu trùng) of Tenebrio Molitor beetles (bọ cánh cứng) — are packed with lean protein, healthy fats and fiber and are touted as one of the most underrepresented healthy foods in the world. EFSA chemist Ermolaos Ververis told Reuters that mealworms would likely be the first of many insect (côn trùng) species sanctioned (cấm vận) by the EU in coming years.
