Sorry, without more context, there is no reason to believe this is related to the Japanese language.

Can you explain why you would think that it had another meaning?

comment What does さちゅえい mean?
"That word was the whole sentence"? Was it a blog post title, or a picture caption, or something? If that's the case, a link would help. It's often difficult to translate without context.

comment How does adding 手 to the beginning of an adjective change its meaning?
This is a lot closer to my impression of the meaning of the 手 prefix. The more I looked at the 手-adjectives, the more they seemed to be specifically about behavior. This raises a couple questions, though: 1) I've seen both 厳しい and 手厳しい used to describe human behavior; how does one decide which to use? 2) 手広い and 手短い don't seem to describe behavior--are they just more intense versions of 広い and 短い, or can one exhibit 手広い or 手短い behavior?
