乌托邦 Dec 13, 2015

Steve,

我想,外国人一般不会去这“原乡美利坚”居住。对其感兴趣的恐怕是某些较富裕的中国人。这些人不懂英语也无妨。据说这个“原乡美利坚”已经出了北京延庆县地界,位于河北省境内。我原以为那里的空气会比较干净,但没想到它仍然难逃雾霾的魔掌!

不过,就算是乌托邦也难免会有不完美的地方。北京臭名昭著的雾霾经常会遮住原乡美利坚的山景

不光是 Jackson Hole 的动植物,还有很多更重要的东西是他们根本就无法“克隆”的。

Steve,

I am wondering why these people don't just immigrate to the United States since they love the American lifestyle so much.

大略地通读了一下《假装住在美国西部》(像是在过家家 icon_wink.gif),我怎么觉得通篇读起来味如嚼蜡。撇开一些很蹩脚的译文不说,把 “America represents wilderness and freedom” 翻译为“美国代表着狂野与自由”,IMO, 其中对 wilderness 的处理很不贴切。

加上 Vitality Air (100% Pure Rocky Mountain Air),就更能“引以为傲”了!

Oxygen Dec 15, 2015

Steve,

Thank you for introducing the Boost, which might be a necessity under certain circumstances. When I visited the summit of Pines Peak in Colorado in 2011, I truly felt that the "100% pure Rocky Mountain air" was not good enough for me although I could breathe as much as I wanted free of charge. Next time when I visit Pines Peak or any other 14ers, I will definitely take several bottles of the Boost with me. icon_biggrin.gifhttp://www.proz.com/post/1770427#1770427

Banff, Alberta Dec 15, 2015



  "据加拿大星网报道,阿尔伯塔省的两位创业者Paquette以及Moses Lam在开玩笑的时候,想出了这个点子,售卖阿尔伯塔省的新鲜空气。

  他们最初把阿尔伯塔省Banffe (sic) 的山野空气放进密封的塑料袋,在eBay上售卖,标价9毛9。此后,他们再次尝试进行销售,结果,第二袋新鲜空气卖出了168美元。"

Yueyin,

According to Wikipedia: "At an elevation of 1,400 m (4,600 ft) to 1,630 m (5,350 ft), Banff is the community with the second highest elevation in Alberta after Lake Louise."

But for $168 a pop, I'd go for the Boost (95% pure oxygen). icon_biggrin.gif

Steve,

Banff, Alberta 真是个美丽清净的好地方。不过,连那两位创业者自己都觉得出这个点子是开玩笑,竟然还有不少人愿意去买。可见,事情实在是到了令人无法忍受的地步。但是,雾霾不是一天两天的事情,袋装新鲜空气无异于杯水车薪。那些人钱再多,靠烧钱也不是解决问题的根本办法。
