No zuo no die (不作死就不会死)

Since: 2013

From: 1985 Gundam Z(高达Z)12th episode

Meaning: Do not take any risk and you won’t die.

It is a chinglish word which can be used in three main different situations:

1- when one achieves his own goal and prevails on another one, but wants to do it in an elegant and cool way;

2- if somebody has put himself in some troubles and, after doing that, complains about the situation;

3- to suggest to someone to use his words carefully.

no zuo no die


Need to know: As it is a chinglish expression, it is composed of a mix of Chinese and English language words. “Zuo” stays for the Chinese “作死” which means “taking risks”.

In Use: 1- “不作死就不会死,哼,这就是挑战我的下场!” ( This time it was a really hard challenge but, anyway, if you don’t risk you won’t die! )

2- “不作死就不会死啊!从此你可都改了罢!” ( If you didn’t do that you wouldn’t come up with this problem! It’s up to you to know when to stop!)

3- “不作死就不会死,你可悠着点儿来!( Mind your words and take it easy!)
