Gabe
: These are pieces I like. Dragons and cool designs.
Maddie: There's a dragon on this plate.
Gabe: Yeah, he looks really fierce.
Maddie: This was originally an imperial piece but was later sold off.
Gabe: Really? How do you know that?
Maddie: Only imperial dragons could have five claws. This piece here has five claws, but one claw per hand was scratched off.
Gabe: So it was sold?
Maddie: And the new owner didn't want to get into trouble.

(续上期)

盖柏:我喜欢这些文物。龙和一些很酷的图案。
曼蒂:这个盘子上面有一条龙的图案。
盖柏:嗯,牠看起来很威猛。
曼蒂:这原本都是皇帝的物品,但后来被廉价出售。
盖柏:真的吗?你怎么知道?
曼蒂:只有皇家的龙才可以有五个爪子。这件文物上有五个爪子,但是每只龙掌的一个爪子都被磨掉了。
盖柏:所以它被卖掉了吗?
曼蒂:而且新物主不想要惹麻烦。


重点解说:

★ imperial (a.) 帝王的
★ claw (n.) 爪,脚爪
★ scratch (v.) 擦,刮

The reasons for the higher injury and death rates are far from clear. Mock speculates that car interiors might not be suitably designed for heavy people. Besides, obese people, with health problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes, could be finding it tougher to recover from injury.

胖人在车祸中有较高的受伤率和死亡率,其原因尚不清楚。莫克推测,汽车的内部设计或许不适合于胖人。此外,患有高血压或者糖尿病的肥胖者,受伤后较难康复。
