    "smysl" can be quite accurately translated as "sense", in all its meanings and derivatives, such as:

    Nedává (mi) to smysl. = It makes no sense (to me).
    smysl pro humor = sense of humor
    (mimo)smyslové vnímání = (extra)sensory perception
    Dej mně pokoj s tím tvým jahodovým nesmyslem, já si dám normalní pivo. = Give me a break with that strawberry-flavoured nonsense of yours, I'll have a regular beer.
