"Is water wet?" nghĩa là gì?

"Is water wet?" = nước có ướt không? -> nghĩa là câu hỏi mỉa mai trả lời cho các câu hỏi trước đó là tất nhiên rồi.

Ví dụ
Is water wet? These jerseys are sick and hands-down take the cake as the best reverse retro (cổ điển) jersey of the bunch. Avs faithful have long awaited the return of the original Igloo logo and fleur-del-lis accents of the franchises’ Quebec roots, and I think the “reverse” aspect of sticking to the current color scheme is a wonderful nod to both the past and present.

I just assume that people believe that their religion has the fullness of the banquet (bữa tiệc). It’s kind of like a “is water wet?” kind of thing. Why should that surprise any of us? The issue is not getting people to believe less in the fullness of their tradition. 

I mean, why is water wet? "It just happens to be that my style is explosive and I finish people," O'Malley tells Newshub. "I don't necessarily try to do that, that's just my skill set."

WILL THE WOMEN FIGHT? Is the sky blue? Is water wet? Of course they’ll fight. That’s what “Real Housewives” is all about. A show about happy, friendly, supportive, enlightened women would be a screaming bore (chán nản). There has to be conflict (mâu thuẫn). That’s why people watch.

"What more do you want, jam on it?" nghĩa là gì?

"What more do you want, jam on it?" = muốn gì nữa, thêm mứt à? -> nghĩa là câu hỏi mỉa mai rằng hãy hài lòng với mọi thứ mình có, không nên được voi đòi tiên. 

Ví dụ
The Clearaudio Concept Active MM is essentially the company’s Concept turntable with built-in phono and pre-amplifier stages and a headphone output. Back in 2016, we concluded that the Concept was “a thoroughly sorted (thích hợp), easy-to-own package with tremendous (to lớn) sound”. So convinced were we by its completeness that we asked: “What more do you want, jam on it?”

But context (bối cảnh) is everything here. The SR-C20A is usefully small, reasonably affordable and can make across-the-board improvements to the sound of your TV or your monitor (màn hình). It’s even half-decent with music. What more do you want, jam on it?

Life Force is a challenging beast and the Arcade Archives version includes three version of the game - the original Japanese Salamander from 1986, the renamed North American version that included narrative and graphical alterations, and yet another iteration (lặp lại) (also renamed Life Force) which went back to Japan the following year with further tweaks. Three games in one? What more do you want, jam on it?

"Jam on the brake" nghĩa là gì?

"Jam on the brake" -> nghĩa là phanh gấp, hãm kẹt phanh, dừng đột ngột. 

Ví dụ
But if you ever find yourself in a situation where your car loses control, don’t panic (hoảng loạn). Most people tend to jam on the brake, which is probably the worst thing you can do.

"These things have a sequential gearbox (hộp số xe đua) in them, so all you have to do is pull a lever to go up and down a gear. So in that respect, it’s more of a sports car,” Pardus said. "The MX-5s also have ABS (anti-lock braking systems) on them, so you can go in the corner and really jam on the brake pedal.

Another time it nearly rolled off a very tall cliff (vách đá) to its certain demise but instead plowed through a pile of stacked coal near the edge and slowed down just enough for Dad, running in cowboy boots, to catch up, throw himself through the passenger's door, and jam on the brake mere feet from the precipice (vách đứng). Seeing as we lived on a hill, you'd think he would have remembered to set that e-brake.

As Patterson tried to jam on the brake, his flip flop became caught on the gas pedal and the car’s turbocharged (động cơ tăng áp) engine roared. Patterson veered (đổi hướng) to the right to avoid rear-ending the vehicle, sending his car flying through the corner of a curbside conference room in Pitt’s Eureka Building.

"Ain't no thang" nghĩa là gì?

"Ain't no thang" -> nghĩa (lóng) là không thành vấn đề, không đáng kể.

Ví dụ
Vagena Drip, wins for best entrance as she fully drops into a Russian split and bounces up and down like it ain’t no thang. She’s the secret weapon of this trip.

Look, if entire swaths of people can watch Fox News and be hypnotized (thôi miên) into believing COVID-19 ain’t no thang, then surely I can be hypnotized into eating some fucking Broccolini.

Worth (xứng đáng) tuning in to hear his insider perspective (viễn cảnh) on a transport industry under lockdown, and also to hear the legendary Swisher lay down those labour relations questions like it ain't no thang, as she does.

"Love sees no faults" nghĩa là gì?

"Love sees no faults" -> nghĩa là người đang yêu thường không thấy được khuyết điểm của người mình yêu.

Ví dụ 
A father's love sees no faults! That's exactly what happened to Harry Baweja when he launched son Harman in the magnanimous (cao thượng) project 'Love Story 2050'!

Everyone kept telling me that she had too many issues to be in a stable relationship, but I couldn't bring myself to listen until things started getting bad between us. Love sees no faults, I guess.

The ecstatic (gây ra hay thể hiện trạng thái mê ly) utterances (lời phát biểu) in this way arise from the love of self because the eye of love sees no faults. Since such a person loves his self, he supposes that faulty, unworthy fragment of glass to be a brilliant or a diamond.

"It isn't as though" nghĩa là gì?

"It isn't as though" -> nghĩa là không đúng, đó không phải sự thật.

Ví dụ
It isn’t as though the team is without alternatives (thay thế), after all. Where are the heroes, known to be Avengers, such as Blade, Hawkeye, and Shang-Chi? All three of these characters would be a sorely (rất nhiều) needed asset, both to diversify (đa dạng hóa) the team’s skill set and also to eliminate the risk of further empowering their enemies.

It isn’t as though there have not been efforts to fix this problem, but with the long life of the Queen, there is an enormous delay (chậm trễ) in time between the fix and the worsening problem.

It isn’t as though this is a maneuver (vận động) never before attempted by a Missouri prosecutor. St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar threw out two rape convictions in 2018, after new information cast doubt on the guilt of the two men.

First of all, this is sort of what kids do. It’s fun to tease (trêu chọc) older people when you’re young, because pretty much your only power over them is cultural, and people hate feeling old and uncool. Second, it isn’t as though all of Gen Z is anti all millennials; they’re the people who stan (hâm mộ) millennial celebrities the hardest, and it’s not like generations are physically walled off from maintaining relationships with one another.
