按:一段网聊

U: WordPress does have a nice layout
U: it loads fast

M: yeah, I was a bit surprised that you knew WordPress
U: why is that?
U: I know everything

M: I don't know how to describe this in English. but there is really some words for it in Chinese
U: one shouldn't let a language be a barrier
U: photos and videos speak an universal language

M: throw the bull
M: brag
U: what?
U: what is throw the bull?
U: to brag?

M: does it mean "talk big"
M: I find them on an online dictionary
U: oh...see you know more English than I do
M: :P
U: never heard of the term "throw the bull"
M: (mm)
M: now you heard it.

U: I think Americans use the term 'bullshit'
U: throw the bull?

M:  'bullshit' doesn't mean "talk big"
U: i have never heard an American say that
U: yes it does

M: oh, i c
M: any other terms for that meaning?
U: when you are trying to sell something...you have to give the client lots of 'bullshit" about what you are trying to sell
M: mmmmmmmm.... the 'bullshit' sounds not good anyway
U: and it could mean ...being dishonest
U: but that goes along with trying to sell some something
U: generally it is not good to use the term 'bullshit'
U: it is American slang

M: oh 
U: "throw the bull" sounds like an asian translation of "bullshit"
M: Chinese English.
U: perhaps...it makes no sense...so don't use it...use "bullshit" instead
M:  oh , i c
U: but...try not to use "bullshit" either.
