Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life – 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.

From grilling -- not to test whether something is done, b/c that wouldn't make any sense, given what the phrase means. Instead, to stick a fork in the piece of sufficiently-grilled-meat so as to take it off the grill. Connotations of definitive doneness enhanced by sub-conscious notion that the piece of meat is not only completely cooked, it is no longer reasonably conceived of as part of a living animal, and thus can be stabbed with impunity.
