晚上搭出租我也愿意坐女司机的车,比较有安全感。

《北京人在纽约》 Dec 30, 2009

老袁是不是当年看了这本电视剧才出国的呀?

打不出来她那个名字。

如果我在80年代来美前能有幸看到电视剧《北京人在纽约》,我也许就不出国了!:D 1993年,我已在加州定居。有一次我打电话给国内的亲戚,是我外甥女接的。她说,“我们正在看《北京人在纽约》,真惨!” 我说“是吗?”从此我就一直想看一看到底如何个惨法,但直到去年,才抽空看了该电视剧。

《北京人在纽约》中有一句台词:“如果你爱他,就把他送到纽约,因为那里是天堂;如果你恨他,就把他送到纽约,因为那里是地狱。” 我看问题就在于某些人把美国描写成天堂,而另一些人却把美国描写成地狱。我头几次到纽约时,也不怎么喜欢纽约,但我的一些住在纽约的朋友却很喜欢纽约。

下面再谈谈“蹲”和“蹲厕” Dec 30, 2009

jyuan_us wrote:

The thread is getting way too toilet-obssessed.

上个世纪,中国大陆的厕所绝大多数为“蹲厕”。那时我也天真地以为,“蹲”是与生俱来的一种本能,人皆会之。后来到了德国,有一次我带着几个德国小孩在家门口的一个公园玩,其中一个三岁多的女孩儿chaochao着让我带她回家上厕所。我说不用,你蹲在后面那棵树下就可以。那个小孩说:“我不会蹲!”她的回答很令我震惊,这世上还有不会蹲的人,难道“蹲”也要学吗?

当然要学. That's why at a certain age, babies get potty trained.

http://pottytrainingsolutions.com/article_info.php?articles_id=27

很多看起来是本能的东西其实都是后天学到的风俗习惯; 语言便是其中之一. 又拿吃饭来说吧, 中国汉族大多数人吃饭用筷子, 西方一般用刀叉, 还有些国家和民族的风俗是用手抓的.

Creatures of habit Dec 31, 2009

Bin,

看看这个 -- 也许可说是一些西方人在 toilet training 这个问题上发现世界一些其它地区的传统做法更合情理, 并予以效法 ...

http://www.bornpottytrained.com/

此文可能也间接地回答了你对那个小朋友连 "蹲" 都不会 "蹲" 的疑问 -- many things we know or do are knowledge or actions conditioned by customs and habits; and sometimes even natural instincts could be inhibited by repetitive, reinforced training. If you keep putting diapers on an infant, eventually the infant would go against its natural instinct and relieve itself in the diaper. If a kid has always been trained to use a toilet seat, of course he or she wouldn't know how to go to the bathroom any other way.

厕所文化 Dec 31, 2009

发达国家的外国人来到第三世界国家(不晓得中国现尚属此列否),看见那么脏的公共坐厕,怎样方便,确是一个问题。

世界上最‘牛’的厕所 Dec 31, 2009

重庆有一个出了不少‘闹剧’的地方——洋人街!那里有号称世界上最‘大’的厕所,其名字就叫最‘牛’的厕所,最牛的厕所位于重庆市南岸区,约有200多便槽与蹲位,可满足近千人“方便”。

祝各位新年快乐!身体健康!万事如意,五福吉祥!

As I remember, some of the public squat toilets also had flush mechanisms when I lived in Beijing; and that was a long time ago. So I don't think "flush toilet" is quite the right term for "座厕". IMO, "sitting toilet" might be more accurate.



The most common type of toilet in modern cities is the flush toilet, in which water takes away the waste through sewers to a waste treatment plant. In rural areas where sewers are not practical, septic tanks may be installed instead.

The most common design in western countries is the sitting toilet. Squat toilets are still used by the majority of the world's population.



Here's the wikipedia page where I got the above little blurb from. I believe it has everthing we ever want to know about toilets ...

再论“蹲” Jan 2, 2010

曾经不止一次听到去过中国的老外感叹:你们中国人怎么那么喜欢蹲,怎么那么能蹲?不论是街头巷尾,还是在其他的公共场所,蹲者几乎随处可见:有蹲着打牌的,蹲着抽烟的,蹲着等活的,更让他们感到费解的是,为什么有人蹲在地上吃饭,而且一蹲就是十几分钟?

经他们这么一说,我留意观察了以下,德国的确看不到有人蹲在外面。

很多年以前,那时我的孩子还小,有次我带她出去玩,回家的路上小孩子睡着了。我抱着她,还要走一段上坡路,很累。周围没有凳子,我就靠着一棵树蹲下,想歇歇再走。刚蹲下还没有半分钟,就有人停车下来问:“您是不是不舒服,要我帮忙吗?” 我说没有啊,我只是想休息一下。

可以去申请一下吉尼斯:全世界最大的“蹲厕”。千万别忘了附上照片,否则那个情形老外想象不出的。
