Kathy
: The very center of the house is where we worship our ancestors.
Morley: Will it offend anybody if I take a picture?
Kathy: No, go ahead. This is also the tallest part of the house.
Morley: I guess the eldest family members live next to the home altar, right?
Kathy: You got it. Then the next eldest, and so on. The youngest live furthest out.
Morley: So if this place were attacked, the youngest would be the first to go.
Kathy: Very funny. We should probably get to town before it gets dark.

(续上期)

卡西:这栋房子的中心就是我们祭祖的地方。
莫理:我拍照会不会冒犯到什么人?
卡西:不会,请便。这里也是整栋屋子最高的地方。
莫理:我想最年长的家族成员就住在家中祠堂的旁边,对吧?
卡西:没错。然后是次老的,以此类推。最年轻的住最外面。
莫理:所以如果这里遭受攻击,最年轻的就会第一个死掉。
卡西:不好笑。我们最好在天黑前到市区。


重点解说:

★ worship (v.) 敬奉
★ ancestor (n.) 祖先
★ offend (v.) 冒犯

You've read them before and these health tips have been passed down over generations, but do they really work? We applied modern science to some of the most often repeated words of old fashioned wisdom. Some held up, but, others didn't. Here, medical experts reveal which advice is based on myth and which is based on fact.

你对此已有所耳闻,这些保健诀窍已经流传了好几代,但是它们真的管用吗?我们利用现代科学对人们常挂在嘴边的一些老生常谈进行了检验。有些是站得住的,但是,其他的却是没道理的。在此,医学专家们向我们揭示哪些话是道听途说,哪些则是有着事实根据的。
