"The man I murdered used to stop me on the street when I was twenty-one, pick me up in his arms, kiss my brow, croon wildly to me, sing Rock-a-bye Baby, haul me into meat markets, toss me on the scales and cry, 'Watch it.
Я убил человека, когда мне исполнился двадцать один год. Он издевался надо мной: останавливал на улице, поднимал на руки, чмокал в лоб и баюкал, напевая "баюшки-баю".

Not fish scales but great rough reptile scales, like those on a lizard or a 'gator or an iguana.
Но не рыбья, а грубая чешуя рептилии, вроде ящерицы, игуаны или даже аллигатора.

It is beyond our goal to describe this subject, which has led to volumes of beautiful and strange computer pictures attempting to show behavior at finer and finer scales.
Мы не ставим перед собой цели описать данный предмет, который привел к появлению многих томов прекрасных и странных компьютерных изображений, пытающихся показать поведение объектов все в более малых масштабах.

When it goes back, it cries, drags the darkness with it, and hauls the moon by its tail. All the stars in the sky are Blue Fin's scales."
Пойдет обратно – плачет, за собой тьму ведет, на хвосте месяц тащит, а часты звездочки – той рыбы чешуя.

You'd add a bit of sand every day, yes? Just enough not to trigger the scales.
Каждый день ты добавляешь к своему весу горстку песка, но очень осторожно, чтобы весы не сработали.

Evaluation was based on a method of neurological and psychiatric examination of the patients using screening scales (“list of symptoms” questionnaire, HADS scale of anxiety/depression, and Young's scale of neurotic disorders).
Оценка дана методом неврологического и психиатрического исследования больных с использованием скрининговых шкал («лиcт cимптoмoв», шкала тревоги /депрессии HADS, шкала невротических нарушений - Янга).
In comparison with the construction in FIG. 3, the given design of the reflector is more practically feasible, scales less and, therefore, is more economical.
По сравнению с конструкцией на фиг.3, данная конструкция отражателя более технологична, имеет меньший вес и потому более экономична.

For such a wild outrageous love is like a fit, like a deadly noose, like an illness, and--as soon as it is gratified--the scales fall from the eyes at once and the opposite feeling comes--loathing and hatred, the desire to strangle, to crush.
Потому что этакая насильственная, дикая любовь действует как припадок, как мертвая петля, как болезнь, и - чуть достиг удовлетворения - тотчас же упадает пелена и является противоположное чувство: отвращение и ненависть, желание истребить, раздавить.

After the victory of fear over the clear advantages in the second half of 2008, the scales evened out somewhat, and greed can more frequently become apparent.
После победы страха за явным преимуществом во втором полугодии 2008 года чаши весов несколько выровняются, и жадность все чаще сможет заявлять о себе.

Morvrin was skeptical of everything despite her placid, sometimes vaguely absent look, a stout Brown with gray-streaked hair who demanded six pieces of evidence before she would believe fish had scales.
Морврин, несмотря на умиротворенный, иногда затуманенный взгляд, отличало скептическое отношение ко всему. Коренастая, с седыми прядками в волосах, Коричневая сестра потребует шесть доказательств и лишь после этого поверит, что у рыб есть чешуя.
