In fact... Jul 2, 2008

saw a few in a mall the other day. Some kind of credit card promotion and it was quite eye catching when they were moving in a group. Can't be registered for road use though.

Some after dinner reading: http://archive.peacemagazine.org/v14n3p08.htm

Good article, but poor editing job Jul 4, 2008

Almost right at the beginning ...



There are five countries in the world - the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia with more than 70 billion barrels of oil in proven reserves that are commercially exploitable with existing technology.

Happy Fourth Jul 4, 2008

Zhoudan,

我是没事 鸡蛋里挑挑骨头 - 其实只是个 typo.

最近没有老将们斗嘴, 论坛也显得萧条得很

还是清静些好 Jul 4, 2008

Steve,

恐怕是欲罢不忍、欲斗不能吧!:D 我倒是觉得还是清静些好。不过树欲静而风不止,这种“萧条”或“清静”恐怕是暂时的。

Happy Fourth of July!

Yueyin,

Happy 4th of July to you too. How's the yardwork to your new abode coming along? Lucky you ... Austin had the hottest June on record this year.

Enjoy the summer Jul 4, 2008

Steve,

The yardwork has not been done yet. I've been very busy with some projects. Meanwhile, I’ll wait until the weather cools off a little bit.

The following report is quite interesting:

PETA offers to scan Sharon Stone's brain to find her heart!
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedishrag/2008/07/peta-wants-to-s.html

PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk wrote in the letter:

"Dear Ms. Stone,

I am writing with an offer that could provide an opportunity for you to escape all future public condemnation when you show insensitivity to the suffering of others.

Given that millions of people - including children - were killed, injured, and left homeless by the recent earthquake in China, everyone was shocked to hear you dismiss the devastating effects of this disaster. However, your cavalier attitude did not come as a surprise to us. We are used to the indifference that you flaunt and the callous remarks that you make about the suffering and death of the animals whose fur you wear so often.

Scientific studies suggest that the prefrontal regions of the brains of people who lack empathy might be underdeveloped. Here’s our offer: Would you allow PETA to pay for a scan of the prefrontal region of your brain to determine if comments and actions that seem to demonstrate a lack of empathy are the result of a physical defect?”

Check out the full letter here:

这里再斗嘴我就不来了:-D Jul 5, 2008

Steve,

我看到有人贴出了翻译比赛的点评,不妨去看看,好过斗嘴。

Yueyin, Zhoudan,

你们二位说得是. 还是清静一点好

比赛我这次没关心留意. 但每次赛后我都看了一下. 总的感觉是各次选择的文章段落原文难度不很均匀.

清靜當然好。 ^_^ Jul 5, 2008

steve、老孫、周丹

這裡當然是清靜才好。之前你們老愛在難得清靜時又說什麼「欸,老人不在了挺無聊」、或像婷婷又愛戲謔「某些人的帖子沒了也挺沒趣的」(把人家當成打諢的女戲子看的樣子,她意思好像是 ),害得好不容易的難得清靜馬上因為你們言語<勾引>而遭破壞,害我真是一大陣子連來都不想來這裡。

若非現在少了兩員夾纏不清第一名大將,我還真不可能再上論壇加入聊天呢。

Interesting trivia ...

Personally, I have nothing against the French. It's just interesting to me how people perceive other people

這一題還是不能引帖回覆,怪了 Jul 7, 2008

老孫:

嘻嘻,好自然就這樣稱呼你了,看來比起稱您一聲<樂音大哥>之類的,要來得親切多啦。

我也很樂意上這兒聊天的,只是有陣子光是看新發言的 email 通知都覺得擾人,哪裡還有膽子來鬧麻煩?

說起來我也不是什麼死板的人,當然也不希望論壇整一個死氣沉沉、只有棺材板(呃,有位同仁遇到的那個審稿還是校對的實在太好笑,不拿來開開玩笑實在可惜了),但是,老是在那裡「為反對而反對」、為表示自己站足了真理的地步而不惜詆毀自己的祖國及同胞,那等事兒我實在完全是不能忍受的啦。

你說的沒錯,清靜一天是一天。趁著這大好的難得清靜日子,有得聊就來聊,呵呵呵~~~

祝你 家中花園早日錦蔟

和谐 Jul 8, 2008

Stone,

就叫我老孙好了,很多朋友都是这样称呼我的。

“茶馆”本来就应该是聊轻松话题的地方。我认为,在这个论坛上,来自台湾的声音不是太多了,而是太少了。希望以后能常听到你和其他台湾朋友的声音。今年以来,中国大陆和台湾都发生了很多重大事件,有好事,也有坏事,但总的趋势还是向好的方向发展。海峡两岸的关系也在向健康的方向迅速发展。尤其是,汶川地震发生之后,台湾同胞充分表现出爱心,慷慨解囊,及时伸出援助之手,确实令人十分感动。

不和谐的声音总还是存在的,那是正常现象。不过,“沉舟侧畔千帆过,病树前头万木春”。
