I'd always red these descriptions as implying erect and about to spasm but perhaps that's just my mind, or perhaps you don't subscribe to the same magazines.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    It means either 'High' on drink or drugs or 'Wound up' as in hyperactive to me.
    "Jacking up" is using a hypodermic to administer drugs.
    Stay away from those magazines, they are bad for your eyes.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    That might be how American mothers get a four year old to sleep by 7pm. I must try it sometime.

    As with many things these days, the Sexual connotation is an American import.
