 <播放语音>

In line for the taping
Trev: This line is ridiculous! We have tickets. Why should we have to wait?
Paul: Even though we have tickets, it's still first come, first serve for the taping.
Trev: [To people in line] Moving through! We have tickets! [someone yells, “Get back in line!”]
Paul: See, I told you so. Now calm down and maybe we won't get lynched.
Trev: OK, OK. I'll be a good boy. I wanna see Jon Stewart stick it to the “Man”as much as you do.

(续上期)

排队等待录像
崔佛:这个队伍太夸张了吧!我们有票耶。为什么还要等?
保罗:我们虽然有票,但录像还是会让先来的人先进去。
崔佛:(对着排队的人)借过!我们有票!(有人大叫,‘排到后面!’)
保罗:看吧,我早跟你说了吧。冷静下来,也许我们不会被凌迟至死。
崔佛:好,好。我会乖。我跟你一样想看强史都华消遣‘大人物’。


重点解说:

★ tape (v.) 录像
★ ridiculous (a.) 荒唐可笑的
★ first come first serve 先来先享受
★ move through 穿过人群
★ lynch (v.) 处以私刑,杀死,凌迟
★ stick it to... 拿(某人)开玩笑,牺牲(某人)以取乐。在此Man前缀大写表示‘大人物’

  <播放语音>

Because Americans believe time is a limited resource, they try to conserve and manage it. People in the U.S. often attend seminars or read books on time management. It seems they all want to organize their time better. Professionals carry around pocket planners some in electronic form to keep track of appointments and deadlines. People do all they can to squeeze more life out of their time. The early American hero Benjamin Franklin expressed this view best: "Do you love life? Then do not waste time, for that is the stuff life is made of."

美国人认为时间是一种有限的资源,所以他们尽量爱惜它,用好它。美国人经常参加有关利用时间的讨论会或阅读这方面的书籍。他们似乎都希望能把自己的时间安排得更好。专业人士随身带着袖珍记事本(有些是电子记事本),好随时留意约会时间和工作期限。人们想尽办法要在有限的时间内挤出更多的生活内容。早期的美国英雄本杰明·富兰克林将这种观念表达得最为透彻:“你爱生命吗?如果爱就不要浪费时间,因为生命即是由时间组成的。”

 
 => 简明语法


第一人称will和shall (1)

will专用来表示意图:
I will wait for you.相当于:
I intend to wait for you.
我会等你。
在不存在任何意图的场合用shall,即shall用于不牵涉到主语愿望的动作:
I shall be 25 next week.
下星期我就25岁了。
We shall know the result next week.
下周我们就会知道结果了。(因为结果将在报纸上公布。)
Unless the taxi comes soon we shall miss our plane.
出租汽车要是不快点来,我们就要误飞机了。
