Doug
: Let's watch the Olympics on TV.
Liz: Good idea, I wonder what event is on now.
Doug: [Turns on TV] Ah, darn! Just boring diving. The U.S. always wins. It's so predictable.
Liz: Not really. China won the gold in the men's springboard in the last two Olympics.
Doug: I don't really understand it anyway.
Liz: What we're watching is a five-meter platform event.
Doug: You'd have to put a gun to my head to make me jump from five meters.
Liz: There are also ten-meter platform dives.
Doug: What happens if you belly flop from that high up?
Liz: Not only would it really hurt, but the judges would also give you a zero.

(下期续)

道格:咱们来看奥运电视转播。
丽兹:好主意,不知道现在正在播哪个项目。
道格:(打开电视)啊,可恶!只有无聊的跳水。老是美国赢。随便猜都知道。
丽兹:才不一定呢。中国在过去两届奥运的跳板跳水都拿了金牌。
道格:反正我不是很懂这项运动。
丽兹:我们现在看的项目是五公尺跳台跳水。
道格:你得拿枪抵住我的头,才能逼我从五公尺高跳下去。
丽兹:还有十公尺跳板跳水呢。
道格:如果从那么高的地方腹部落水会怎样?
丽兹:不但会非常痛,裁判还会送你一个鸭蛋。


重点解说:

★ event (n.) 项目
★ diving (n.) 跳水,dive (n., v.) 跳水
★ predictable (a.) 可预测的
★ springboard (n.) 跳板
★ platform (n.) 平台,在此相对于有弹力的跳板,是指不会上下弹的‘跳台’
★ belly flop 腹部落水
★ judge (n.) 裁判

Russian czar Nicholas the second laid the ceremonial first piece of track at the dedication in 1891. But the real backbreaking work was done by Russian peasants. Amazingly the trans continental railroad was almost entirely built by hand. It was built by men with shovels and with picks and with wheel barrels, which is what makes it an even more impressive feat. It's hard to imagine how difficult the working conditions must've been for the people who were doing the labor on the railroad. In the wintertime, wind chills of one hundred and twenty degrees below zero ripped through clothing. While mid summer temps often topped a sweltering one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. It is estimated that thousands died during the construction.

1891年,俄国沙皇尼古拉二世在开工仪式上放下了第一节轨道,但真正辛苦建造它的却是俄国的农民。令人惊奇的是,这条跨越大陆的铁路干线几乎全是手工建成的。它由人们用铁锹、鹤嘴锄和手推车建造,这就使得这条铁路更是一大壮举。很难想像,当时修建铁路的工人的劳动条件是何等的艰苦。在冬季,零下120华氏度的寒风刺骨;在盛夏,又经常出现100华氏度的高温,热得人喘不过气来。据估计,有成千上万的人在建路过程中死去。
