comment Help me understand why 我艹你 means i f*** you?
卧槽 is a term in Chinese Chess, referring to the 2 special places where you put your Horse to checkmate the enemy's general, or referring to the move of putting your Horse at either of the 2 places. It is borrowed to mean "I Fuck" because the 2 characters sound very close to 我肏.

comment Is Chinese imprecise?
中国队大败韩国队 has only one meaning, ie Team China defeated Team Korea heavily. It has the same meaning of 中国队大胜韩国队 even 败 is replaced by its antonym 胜。The reason is that 败 in the 1st sentence is of a special usage, which means 使...败, ie to make sb defeated. Believe me, I am a Chinese native speaker.
