    Think of it like he's playing Dark Souls. Sure he's stronger and tougher, but even the weakest enemies could still do him in if he's careless

    Although he was not clear on the exact number of goblins behind the altar in the so-called dark forest tribe, what he did know was that even the smallest among them could easily crush him to death.

    It might just be referring to the "mainstream" perception, which would be true if you view this as spanning centuries. There was a loooooong period in western cultures where "magic" meant the same thing as "heretic demonic sinner"

    "In foreign cultures, the image of Wizards has always been synonymous with evil. But suddenly, in modern times, many novels, movies, and comics have emerged portraying Wizards and magic in a positive light."

    Ah yes, the Genshin model

    "You don't understand!" the young boss waved his hands grandly, "What about the overseas market? The domestic game market is almost half of the global market. Once we conquer the domestic market, naturally, there will be people overseas begging to bring our game there."

    Common translation issue, typically due to AI/MTL and a lack of editing afterward

    "Giggle~," the young woman covered her mouth and chuckled softly, her narrow phoenix eyes squinting like a fox as she laughed, "Mr. Lu is exaggerating too much. I'm just following the trend. Wizard-themed games are selling especially well internationally now, and many people in the country have already started projects on this theme."

    To be fair, this guy's demons seem to be pretty literal....

    But he had to do it, it was his only option.

    Seems to be more like a boom/bust cycle for the deities. An era of excessive righteousness leads to a rise of suffering, which then becomes excessive in itself and leads to a resurgence of righteousness. This just happens to be the "peak suffering" era

    The gods of this era seemed unable to resonate with the value of "happiness," and so, almost no god of entirely positive emotions was born, only those of negative and neutral emotions existed.

    Online app feature. Your friends can steal your fully-grown vegetables if you don't harvest fast enough

    Feng Jun installed the application in order to please the boss of Hongjie. To be specific, he wanted to curry favour with the boss of Hongjie. Zhang Weihong liked to steal vegetables.

    Feng Jun was a guy who liked to read web novels. Actually, this choice was a last resort. He also liked pastimes like clubbing and so on, but those hobbies were too expensive. Reading was cheaper.

    For those not in the know, this is like someone complaining about "only" winning a $1 million prize when they could've gotten $1.2 million instead

    Ronnie Williams glanced at Tommy Hawk, "Hey, Tommy, badmouthing teachers isn't what you should be doing, especially in front of another teacher. Miss Farell is here to gain some work experience at a public institution and, by the way, study for her bar exam. Of course, according to her, she did indeed attend a trashy college—she graduated from Cornell University, which she settled for as a safety school because Princeton did not accept her. She would have preferred Princeton, but had to settle for Cornell."

    Nah, it's the 80s. They'd use the good old fashioned black-tar heroin!

    "Small business, a student's small business," Tommy replied with equal seriousness.

    Just in time for the Gulf war? 🤔

    But the crossed-over Tommy knew clearly that attending college was the only chance to change his fate. If he didn't go to college, his life would be the same as his father's—working in a factory in Rhode Island, or at a leather shop or auto repair shop as an apprentice, then spending the rest of his life cooped up in this small northeastern coastal border town of America, marrying a woman from a similar background, and struggling to feed his family until death.

    Actually, in the 80s there was a ton of anti-Japanese sentiment due to the perception that they were overtaking the US auto/manufacturing industry and stealing people's jobs during their economic boom

    Tony blew out a puff of cigarette smoke, "Nothing much, he just gathered a dozen or so workers, all angry about being unemployed like him, and smashed a Japanese-owned laundry shop. Only after smashing the place did they find out, the owner wasn't Japanese."

    Looks like it's just a translation error. My guess is that the original text said "a drinking party" or "party with alcohol" and they just directly translated it as ethanol

    Tommy looked at Tony: "Did you rent our home out to those jerks for an ethanol party again? Want me to moonlight as a waiter?"

    Weirdly enough, this is something that actually did happen in the 80s during the Japanese economic boom. Lots of anti-asian racism due to the perception that the Japanese were stealing their jobs

    Tommy sat down on the sofa: "Don't those bastards understand that Asians aren't Japanese! They think the Japanese are causing their unemployment, so why not have the United States military go drop a few more atom bombs on Japan."

    One of the messages in the first or second chapter said that the city ruined were abandoned for more than 700 years

    The light and shadow patterns that emerged on the stele at that moment made Bai Wu feel as if he truly was in a world seven hundred years in the future.

    I feel like this is best used as a critical twist reveal later on

    His Soul Consciousness was not sent back to young Gaven's body, but to Zhang You as a middle school student. Due to its protective function, the Tears of Sulun sealed his powerful soul, including most of his memories.

    Termites have kings. It looks like there's some weird translation error here

    After the act, some of the male and female termites would go their separate ways. Others would find a good spot to dig a nest, then seal the entrance, consummating their matrimony in privacy, forming a lifelong monogamous pair. However, the lifespan of a King Ant was much shorter than that of the Ant Queen, so he would eventually be replaced.

    It's like if "Seinfeld" didn't exist in the world but there was still an equivalent sitcom which impacted the world culture the same way and introduced all the same tropes/cliches. Someone trying to make "Seinfeld" in that world would get rejected for pitching a "cliche, overdone" show

    Secondly, what was popular in the other world was not necessarily well-received in this one.

    This is an old joke for kids learning Chinese. "Wan" -> "10000", so the joke is that the kid is trying to literally draw 10000 strokes instead of using the character like he should

    Wang Guan lifted his cup, his gaze sweeping over the silent Daxiong Bao Hall, then he announced loudly, "I heard a joke in Nanjing City. There was a landlord's son who couldn't read, and someone advised the rich man to hire a teacher. The teacher started with the character 'one,' which has one stroke, 'two' has two, 'three,' three strokes. After that, the landlord's foolish son threw away his brush, proudly telling his father he had mastered all characters and didn't need the teacher anymore. The rich man was delighted and dismissed the teacher. One day, the rich man wanted to invite a friend with the surname Wan for a drink and asked his son to write an invitation in the morning, but by noon it was still unwritten. When he inquired, his son complained, 'There are so many surnames in the world—why did that guest have to have the surname Wan? I've been writing since morning and have only reached over five hundred strokes!'"
