Hi Guys,

My big apology, that I'm disturbing again. But I got stuck at the right meaning of this idiom....If one man will ask another one

Is there anything that's gotten more in-your-face?

Please what is the point of this sentence? I checked the web page thefreedictionary.com for this idiom and there is being written, that idiom in-your-face describes something that's difficult to ignore. But I wonder, how would you translate this sentence. I'm hesitating between these:

- Is there anything suspicious, that you noticed? or Is there anything globally suspicious?

You, know, I don't understand with who is this idiom being related. If it points to the particular attender of the dialog or whether is points to everyone.

many thanks in advance.

Think of an adversary who is yelling at you, red in the face, and making you very uncomfortable. In-your-face in usually a negative way of expresssing something that is so obvious that one cannot very well ignore it.

Hi,

The underlying physical idea for 'in your face' is that someone is in front of you and has their angry face very close to your face. In English speaking cultures, this is very, very annoying. Hence, get out of my face!

Best wishes, Clive
