Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life ā€“ sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

Brownie points are things that you keep track of yourself when talking to your crush or someone you're into. You gain brownie points when you say nice things or joke around with them and they accept the joke. You can also lose brownie points by saying something insulting or rude that the person would most likely take offense to.
"I just gained brownie points with him!"

"I just lost attention by making that joke."

Last month I went to the garden show with her and this month we're having her parents over for dinner. I'm pretty sure I've got enough brownie points to have her ass everyday for a week!
