    дьявол, инвалид

    1. When a kid is very naughty we usually say - He is a small devil. Какое ласкательное слово дьявол? дьяволчик
    2. "I cannot find anyone in that company with the minimum rate of IQ required for a proper discussion to resolve my problem. Are they all idiots?!? " - For a reason the most accurate translation in my brain is инвалиды and no идиоты! What is for you russians the most accurate translation?
    3. Donald Trump represents a new trend of american conservatism - он представляет себя
    4. Spartan's persistence to continue fighting even if they knew that they would die symbolizes the unfettered nature of man who can never compromise with deprivation of his freedom and can never tolerate injustice. - представляет себя?
    5. Red Cross symbolizes hope! - представляет себя?
    символизировать cannot be used in the case of 3., 4. and 5. ?

    6. he is a "pain in the ass" - надоедливый человек (google translate it as pain in the neck?!?)
    7. I am an amateur musician? - непрофессиональный?
    8. What is the diffence btw шутить и шутиться? - If I want to say: "You shouldn't be insulted I am just joking" - ... Я просто шучу!
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.

    1. Дьяволёнок
    2. Умственно отсталые
    3. Представляет СОБОЙ
    4. Символизирует
    5. Символизирует (good for all #3, 4, 5)
    6. Заноза в заднице
    7. Музыкант-любитель
    8. The difference is that the word шутиться does not exist while шутить does.
    There are words "дошутиться", "обшутиться" but it's quite a different story...

    Another month ends. All targets met. All systems working. All customers satisfied. All staff eagerly enthusiastic. All pigs fed and ready to fly.

    Excellent answer!
    The first я in Дьяволёнок is pronounced as "ya" or like "i"?
    But ...

    Умственно отсталые ... my new pet-word.

    1. дьяволёнок (it is widespreaded ending for little (young) animals: кот/котёнок, лис/лисёнок, etc)
    2. "инвалиды" sounds strange a little. "идиоты" is perfect as far as I understand context.
    3. "представляет из себя" or "представляет собой" are correct ones.
    4. "символизирует"
    5. "символизирует".
    "представляет из себя" cannot be used in 4,5.
    6. direct russian idiom is "заноза в заднице" (splinter in the ass)
    7. yes. Also we use noun "любитель" (liker/lover) to express that subject is our hobby, not profession. "Я - любитель.".
    8. I skip

    It is rare word. You should avoid it until you get much more practice.
    I can give only typical (maybe all of them) examples of usage:
    "Ему больше не шутилось" - "He didn't want to joke anymore"
    "Сейчас шутится легко" - "it is easy to joke now".
    I do not recommend to try to construct sentences with this word by yourself.
