    Cho mình hỏi thêm chút là cụm từ "burning behaviour" dưới đây nên dịch là như thế nào? mình băn khoăn không biết có phải là "hành vi dễ gây cháy quần áo trẻ em" hay "đặc tính dễ cháy của quần áo trẻ em". Có 1 bản dịch là "hành vi đốt quần áo ngủ của trẻ em" - mình thấy không đúng lắm.

    "Flammability
    The EU has no specific legal requirements regarding apparel flammability, but several individual countries do, including the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Switzerland (in German). The EU has a voluntary standard concerning the burning behaviour of children’s nightwear, which helps in complying with the GPSD."

    Don’t ever tell me that the devil doesn’t have supernatural power. I wonder whether amongst the Maori people there aren’t, what I think you call toe-honers, that could do things like that. If the worse came to the worse. I’m inclined to think they could. But, the climax of that incident is that Moses’ snake ate up the snakes of the magicians. So, I don’t know whether you’ve ever pictured this scene, but Moses went out with a much thicker, heavier rod than he had before. And the Egyptians went out...

    Cho mình hỏi cụm từ "toe-honers" trong ngữ cảnh này là gì ạ. Mình thử tìm hiểu văn hóa của người Maori nhưng không tìm ra được khái niệm này.

    Mình có đọc được 1 đoạn như thế này:
    "You will make it through this. This is just temporary. You won't feel like this forever. The hard side of fear, the dark side of not feeling good enough. Again, this is all temporary. Don't mistake a time stamp for a tomb stone. This will not bury you. You will make it through. You will conquer this. You can do this. This is just the part where you have to commit to trying even though it's the hardest thing to do."
