 => 每日会话 

 <播放语音>

Gil
: Well, there's enough of that going on every time you turn on the TV.
Viv: Yeah, but trying to tell a couple of lions that Jesus will save them? I'm just so amazed by how "out there" people can be.
Gil: It's like jumping out of airplanes or working as a snake catcher or other things like that.
Viv: Maybe, but most of those people are sane. The guy at the zoo had definitely lost his marbles.
Gil: I wonder if religion had anything to do with it. Where I come from, in Kentucky, people in the Church of God do snake handling and drink strychnine.
Viv: Do the snakes bite them?
Gil: Only if their faith in God wavers, supposedly. Anyway, that's just another example of the strange things people do for their religion.
Viv: [Looks in tank] Ooh, here come the feeders. Sorry, I wanna watch this!

(续上期)

吉尔:嗯,光是每天打开电视看就够了。
薇薇:对啊,不过想对几只狮子说耶稣会救牠们?我实在很惊讶有人会如此疯狂。
吉尔:这就像是跳出飞机或是以抓蛇为业之类的。
薇薇:也许,不过那些人大部分都很正常。动物园那家伙铁定是疯了吧。
吉尔:我怀疑是不是跟宗教有关。我的老家肯塔基州那里,神的教会的信众会玩蛇,还会喝老鼠药。
薇薇:蛇会咬他们吗?
吉尔:应该只有在他们对神的信念摇摆不定时才会。总之,那只不过是另一个人们为了宗教做些怪事的例子罢了。
薇薇:(看着水族箱)喔,喂食的人来了。不好意思,我想看这个!


重点解说:

★ out there 不切实际的,脱离现实的
★ sane (a.) 神智清楚的
★ lose one's marbles 失去理性,发疯
★ have...to do with... 跟…有关
★ snake handling 是指‘与蛇共事’这件事情,就是指会玩蛇的人;strychnine (n.)(化学)番木虌碱,一种常见的老鼠药
★ waver (v.) 摇摆不定,犹豫
★ supposedly (adv.) 恐怕
