An Ingenious Love LetterThere once lived a lad who was deeply in love with a girl, but disliked by the girl’s father, who didn’t want to see any further development of their love. The lad was eager to write to the girl, yet he was quite sure that the father would it first. So he wrote such a letter to the girl:一个小伙子非常爱一位姑娘,但姑娘的父亲却不喜欢他,也不让他们的爱情发展下去。小伙子很想给姑娘写封情书,然而他知道姑娘的父亲会先看,于是他给姑娘写了这样一封信:My love for you I once expressed我对你表达过的爱no longer lasts, instead, my distaste for you已经消逝。我对你的厌恶is growing with each passing day. Next time I see you,与日俱增。当我看到你时I even won’t like that look yours.我甚至不喜欢你的那副样子。I’ll do nothing but我想做的一件事就是look away from you. You can never expect I’ll把目光移往别处,我永远不会marry you. The last chat we had和你结婚。我们的最近一次谈话was so dull and dry that you shouldn’t think itmade me eager to see you again.枯燥乏味,因此无法使我渴望再与你想见。If we get married, I firmly believe I’ll假如我们结婚,我深信我将live a hard life, I can never生活得非常艰难,我也无法live happily with you, I’ll devote myself愉快地和你生活在一起,我要把我的心but not奉献出来,但决不是to you. No one else is more奉献给你。没有人能比你更harsh and selfish and least苛求和自私,也没有人比你更solicitous and considerate than you.关心我帮助我。I sincerely want to let you know我真挚地要你明白,what I said is true. Please do me a favor by我讲的是真话,请你助我一臂之力ending our relations and refrain from结束我们之间的关系,别试图writing me a reply. Your letter is always full of答复此信,你的信充满着things which displease me. You have no使我兴趣索然的事情,怀有sincere care for me. So long! Please believe对我的真诚关心。再见,请相信I don’t love you any longer. Don’t think我并不喜欢你,请你不要以为I still have a love of you!我仍然爱着你!Having the letter, the father felt relieved and gave it to his daughter with a light heart. The girl also felt quite pleased after she it carefully, her lad still had a deep love for her. Do you know why? In fact, she felt very sad when she the letter for the first time. But she it for a few more times and , at last, she found the key – only every other line should be , that is the first line, the third, the fifth … and so on to the end.姑娘的父亲看了这封信以后,非常高兴地把信给了姑娘。姑娘看罢信也非常快乐,小伙子依然爱着她。你知道她为什么高兴吗?其实,她初读时非常忧伤,但她怎么也不相信那是他的真心话,于是她又默读了几遍,终于,她清楚了该怎样读法。只能一、三、五行如此类推,直到信的结尾. /200808/46485。

Helping Others 美国方式:帮助他人 Christmas in America means different things to different people. To some people, Christmas means brightly wrapped packages under a decorated tree. To others, it means family reunions and a wonderful meal together. To Christians, it means Jesus' birthday. Christmas also means lending a helping hand to people in need. Along with all the hubbub of shopping for presents and sending Christmas cards, many people in America take time to help others. 在美国,圣诞节对不同的人代表了不同的意义。对某些人而言,圣诞节的意义是在布置好的圣诞树底下那些包装得色鲜艳的礼物。对另外一些人而言,它的意义则是家人团圆以及共享美好的一餐。对基督徒来说,它代表了耶稣的诞生。圣诞节的意义也是向需要帮助的人伸出援手。在采购礼物及寄送圣诞卡片的一阵忙乱当中,很多美国人仍会拨出时间去帮助别人。 In America and around the world, Christmas offers many opportunities to sp "peace on earth, good will toward men." For example, Salvation Army bell ringers are a familiar sight to most Christmas shoppers. They stand outside malls and stores collecting money for the needy. Many churches and other organizations collect toys and clothes as Christmas gifts for poor families. Going caroling is another traditional way to bring cheer to neighbors--especially the elderly and people who can't get out much. The Christmas spirit encourages people to help each other in many large and small ways. 在美国及全世界各地,圣诞节提供了很多传扬「平安与世,善意与人」的机会。例如,救世军的摇铃者对大多数为圣诞节购物的人们而言,是一个熟悉的景象。他们通常会站在购物中心和商店外面,为有需要的人募钱。很多教会和其它的机构会收集玩具和衣,作为穷苦家庭的圣诞礼物。报佳音是另外一种能够将欢乐带给邻舍的传统方式,尤其是针对那些老人和无法常出门的人。圣诞节的精神鼓励人们在许多大大小小的事情上互相帮助。 /200803/32922。

汇集美国各大晚间脱口秀中一些搞笑Monologue, 时事性新闻性外加些美国幽默。March 26, 2009"I have a plan to end the war in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Here's what we do. We bring all our soldiers home.

The guy won ,500. Bernard Madoff, of course, is in prison for luring money from rich people in a giant scam that promised to make them richer. But don't confuse him with the state lottery, which lures money away from poor people in a giant scam that promises to make them richer." --Jay Leno“纽约皇后区的一名建筑工人,用伯纳德·麦道夫监狱号码,买票中了奖。这个家伙中了1500美元。当然,伯纳德·麦道夫被关在监狱里,是因为他用‘保赚钱’的巨大骗局,来吸走富人的钱。但是,请不要将他和州政府票所混淆。州政府票那是用保赚钱的巨大骗局,来吸走穷人的钱。” ——杰·雷诺March 25, 2009"How many watched the President's news conference last night?

So, yet another reversal of the Bush policies." --Jay Leno“这里有多少人观看了昨晚总统的新闻发布会?当他被问到‘为什么等了三天他才大声疾呼表示反对AIG的奖金计划’的时候,你知道,他昨晚有点儿不高兴,奥巴马总统说,他喜欢在说话之前知道自己要说的是什么。所以,这又一是一项与布什的政策完全相反的奥巴马政策。”——杰·雷诺"No, President Obama also unveiled his new border policy to fight the Mexican drug wars. Interesting. It consists of the feds buying up to 80 percent of all the Mexican cartels. You see, we're going to get all the toxic drugs out of the system. We're going to buy them up. We will be owners of the drug cartels. I'm trying to get something with that joke and it's going nowhere." --Jay Leno“ 不,奥巴马总统还推出了新的边境政策,以打击墨西哥的毒品交易。有趣的是。新的政策是:由联邦政府收购所有墨西哥毒品垄断集团多达百分之八十的股份。看,我们将把所有的有毒资产——毒品从系统中清除掉。我们将把它们全部买进。我们将成为毒品集团的所有者。我试图从中找些笑话,可我实在找不到。” ——杰·雷诺 "Many people are complaining, though, that Obama is becoming too scripted. Last night, he was having an intimate moment with Michelle, and she said, 'Wait, are you ing the teleprompter?'" --Jimmy Fallon“许多人都在抱怨,说奥巴马正在变得过于照本宣科了。昨晚,他正在和老婆米歇尔亲密的时候,老婆突然说,‘等等,你是不是正在用电子提词机啊?’” -吉米·法伦"Did you hear about this? Nickelodeon's asking all children to unplug electronic devices for one minute on Earth Day to teach the importance of respecting the environment. I think it's a great idea, unless the kids are visiting their grandmother in a nursing home. Then that one minute is pretty rough. 'SpongeBob killed Nana. What happened?'" --Jimmy Fallon“你听说了吗?Nickelodeon儿童电视频道呼吁,所有的小孩在地球日那天拔掉家里电子设备的电源线一分钟,以教育他们尊重环境的重要性。我认为这是一个很好的主意,除非孩子们那天正在探访疗养院里的祖母。那样的话那断电的一分钟会是相当难受的。海棉宝宝谋杀祖母,怎么回事啊?” ——吉米·法伦 March 24, 2009"The market rallied yesterday after the Treasury said it was going to help banks sell off their toxic assets. That's the big problem, banks can't sell toxic assets. Well, duh. I mean, I'm no economist, but maybe you should stop calling them toxic assets. Huh? Isn't that like KFC advertising salmonella chicken?" --Jay Leno“昨天股场反弹了,之前美国财政部表示,将帮助出售其有毒资产。这是个大问题,跟本不可能出售有毒资产。嗨,笨瓜。我的意思是,我可不是经济学家,但也许应该立即停止称呼那些为有毒资产。对吗?这难道不就是像肯德基做广告说,要卖沙门氏菌鸡吗?”——杰·雷诺"Mexico's government just offered a million bounty on its top drug lords, which is different from what we do here in America.

Michelle Obama is planting a vegetable garden on the White House lawn. You know the economy's bad when the Obamas are afraid of running out of food." --Jimmy Fallon“昨晚你们看到‘60分钟’电视节目中这个消息吗?米歇尔·奥巴马开始在白宫草坪上开辟一处小菜园子了。当奥巴马一家担心食物不够的时候,你们就应该知道经济有多糟糕了。”——吉米·法伦 /200904/66229。

Actor Nicolas Cage may want to brush up on his accounting skills. The IRS is going after the 45-year-old actor for .2 million, according to the Daily Mail. The problems stem from 2007, a year in which he made four films, including "National Treasure" and "Ghost Rider."   演员尼古拉斯·凯奇可能是想重新复习下他的财会技能了。美国国税局追缴这位45岁的男演员的时候,搞到620万美元的税收款,据《每日邮报》报道。漏税时间要从2007年开始算起,他当年接拍了4部影片,包括《国家宝藏》、《鬼骑士》。 /200909/84169。

That little "a" with a circle curling around it that is found in email addresses is most commonly referred to as the "at" symbol。  小写字母“a”外加个圆圈,这一符号常出现在email(电子邮件)地址中,通常是作为“at”(在)的标记。  Surprisingly though, there is no official, universal name for this sign. There are dozens of strange terms to describe the @ symbol。然而令人感到惊奇的是,这一标记居然没有官方的,通用的名称。有几十个奇怪的术语用来描绘@这一符号。  Before it became the standard symbol for electronic mail, the @ symbol was used to represent the cost or weight of something. For instance, if you purchased 6 apples, you might write it as 6 apples @ .10 each。  @这一符号在成为电子邮件的标准符号之前,曾被用来表示物品的单价或质量。例如,你买6只苹果。就可以写成:六只苹果,每只@.10,表示每只苹果1.10美元。  With the introduction of e-mail came the popularity of the @ symbol. The @ symbol or the "at sign" separates a person's online user name from his mail server address. For instance,joe@uselessknowledge.com. Its widesp use on the Internet made it necessary to put this symbol on keyboards in other countries that have never seen or used the symbol before. As a result, there is really no official name for this symbol。  随着电子邮件的使用,@这一符号越来越普及了。符号@或“at”标记将上网用户的姓名与其邮件的务器地址分开。例如:joe@uselessknowledge.com。这一符号在因特网上的广泛使用使得许多以前从未见过或使用过它的国家必须在它们的电脑键盘上加上这一符号键,结果造成这一符号并没有真正的官方名称。  The actual origin of the @ symbol remains an enigma。  @符号的确切起源仍然是谜。  History tells us that the @ symbol stemmed from the tired hands of the medieval monks. During the Middle Ages before the invention of printing presses, every letter of a word had to be painstakingly transcribed by hand for each copy of a published book. The monks that performed these long, tedious copying duties looked for ways to reduce the number of individual strokes per word for common words. Although the word "at" is quite short to begin with, it was a common enough word in texts and documents that medieval monks thought it would be quicker and easier to shorten the word "at" even more. As a result, the monks looped the "t" around the "a" and created it into a circle-eliminating two strokes of the pen。  历史告诉我们,@这一符号起源于中世纪僧侣疲劳的双手。中世纪时印刷机尚未发明,要出版一本书,每一个单词的每一个字母都得用手工辛苦的刻出来。从事这项长时间辛苦誊写刻画的僧侣们就开始寻找减少每一个常用字笔画数的方法。虽然“at”这一单词开始写起来很短,但它在文本和文件中频繁出现。中世纪的僧侣们就想到如果能进一步简化它,就可以写起来更快更容易。结果,僧侣们就在“a”四周画了一个圈,从而省却了字母“t”的两个笔划。 /201003/99715。

很多人都知道,在西方国家13是个不吉利的数字。有很多楼层、门牌号都会直接跳过13,12之后直接是14,或是用12A代替13。那么,为什么13是个不吉利的数字呢?原因有很多种:  1. 最后的晚餐中的13门徒  Some Christian traditions have it that at the Last Supper, Judas, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th to sit at the table.  传说耶稣遇难前和弟子们共进了一次晚餐。参加晚餐的第13个人是耶稣的弟子犹大。就是这个犹大为了30块银元,把耶稣出卖给犹太教当局,致使耶稣受尽折磨。而且参加最后晚餐的是13个人,晚餐的日期恰逢13日,“13”给耶稣带来苦难和不幸。从此,“13”被认为是不幸的象征,也成为背叛和出卖的同义词。 /201004/102763。

He's gentle, unworldly, highly attentive and charmingly old-fashioned. The catch? The very things that make Keith so attractive to Sarah are symptoms of Asperger's. Anna Moore meets the couples living with this surprisingly common conditionSarah Hendrickx and Keith Newton sit tilted towards one other, laughing a lot and disappearing down the occasional alley of in-jokes, as couples do when they're still in that early, besotted stage.Sarah Hendrickx and Keith Newton at Sarah’s home in Hove. 'He's so gorgeous he could have anyone - but not for long,' she says.Keith has just arrived at Sarah's home in Hove and they're clearly delighted by the prospect of the next few days together. As always, Keith has switched off his mobile phone because, as he puts it, 'my time here is with Sarah'. They won't see anyone else - Keith has no friends of his own and doesn't feel comfortable socialising - but plan to eat lots of chocolate, walk and watch television. 'We spend a lot of time feeling smug,' says Sarah, 'because we see other couples who don't look very happy.'In a few days, though, Keith will drive back to Wickham, Hampshire, 50 miles away, where he lives alone and works as a computer programmer. This will always be the case. Despite meeting five years ago, they won't 'progress' as other couples do. They'll neither live together nor have children. Although there's only a year between them, at 39 Keith is so gangly, gawky, boyish and cute that he could be ten years younger than he is.Yet Sarah - who had a child at 19 and has two marriages behind her - is confident that few women could put up with him. 'God, he's so gorgeous he could have anyone - but not for long,' she says, laughing. 'Three or four months max… then, when the conversation turns to homes and babies and bank accounts, he'd be gone!' The two burst into laughter.It wasn't always like this. The couple met through internet dating and the first stage of their relationship was fiery and fraught. To Sarah, Keith was 'a puzzle'. He'd plainly state that their blissful weekends were enough for him, that he'd never live with her or even move nearer. Sarah frequently found him selfish, cold and distant. Keith found Sarah hard work, demanding and 'screechy'.advertisementUltimately, only one thing allowed them to start again from scratch - they uncovered the reason for Keith's 'insensitivity', his aloofness, the fact that he could see no future with Sarah nor seemed to want one: Keith has Asperger's syndrome (AS).Such a late diagnosis is not uncommon. Asperger's - a developmental condition that falls within the autism spectrum - was identified more than 60 years ago but became a standard diagnosis only in 1992 when it entered the World Health Organisation's diagnostic manual. As a result, the majority of adults with the syndrome almost certainly grew up without knowing they had it.Estimates vary enormously as to the prevalence, but one in 100 people is thought to be on the autism spectrum, and it is more common in males by a ratio of nine to one. People with AS normally have above-average intelligence but great difficulties with empathy, communication and social interaction.People with AS struggle to understand the unwritten social rules that help most of us act and speak appropriately. They find it hard to decipher figures of speech, facial expressions and tones of voice, and are frequently (but unintentionally) concise and literal to the point of rudeness. Since the 'real world' becomes an extremely stressful place, many retreat into their own safe haven of routine, solitude and obsessive special interests.Today AS is likely to be recognised in a child, and his school will be told he needs special support. Twenty years ago, however, he'd be the 'geek' who didn't quite fit but was left to get on with it. And that struggle has continued into adulthood. For someone with AS, the minefield of relationships, marriage and parenthood can be the hardest part of all.Louise Corbett manages the National Autistic Society (NAS) helpline and confirms that more calls are coming from couples who have recognised Asperger's in their relationship.'When I started six years ago most of our calls were made by parents about their children,' she says. 'Now we get more adult-related calls than child-related.' As Asperger's seems to run in families, many women identify it in their husbands - or their husbands see it in themselves - only after their child has been diagnosed and they've the literature. 'They call in absolute shock,' says Corbett. 'Often they've been experiencing difficulties for years without knowing why. There's no way around it: Asperger's can be very hard to live with.'Maxine Aston, the author of Aspergers in Love (Jessica Kingsley, pound;14.95), is one of the few counsellors to work specifically with couples affected by AS. Her surveys and questionnaires from the past decade suggest that 75 per cent of such couples seek counselling. 'I'd almost say AS was a "relationship disorder",' she says. 'It affects communication, interaction and the ability to empathise. Any research will tell you they're the key ingredients for a successful relationship.' In Aston's experience - and desperate clients come from as far as Japan, New Zealand and Canada - Asperger's relationships follow a common pattern.'A huge number seem to meet on dating websites,' she says. 'For someone with AS it's the perfect route.' Where once many people with AS were effectively barred from the dating game, the internet now provides the perfect point of entry (it has, as Aston puts it 'opened the floodgates').Bypassing the enormous challenges involved in chatting someone up, it allows you to make a checklist and then select according to criteria. Although many people with AS are unemployed or underemployed, others are at the top of their profession. 'On paper they look amazing,' says Aston. 'Doctors, IT consultants, engineers, solicitors… They could be in their forties but have never married - so no baggage. The internet also allows them to build a rapport by email,' she continues. 'When they meet, women are often very charmed by this polite, gentle man with an old-fashioned appeal.'This was certainly true for Sarah who found Keith completely different to anyone she had known. 'At the end of our first date he kissed my cheek and shook my hand,' she recalls. 'So different to all the guys that ply you with rioja. Keith seemed so untouched by needless fashion and peer pressure - I thought he was a Buddhist!'advertisementHowever, in Aston's experience, this appeal can wear thin. 'Women fall in love and want to nurture this unworldly, slightly vulnerable man and help him grow up. As the relationship settles, though, they often find their own emotional needs aren't being met.'Someone with AS probably has good intentions,' she goes on. 'He wants to make her happy but can't the signs. At the beginning of the courtship the woman could become his obsession and she has probably never experienced such attention. Five years down the line, when he has focussed on something else and returns from work, yet again forgets to say hello and goes to the garage to take the car apart, things are very different. Women often say to me, "He's either got Asperger's or he's the most selfish man on the planet."'Another problem can be the isolation. People with AS frequently have sensory difficulties - loud noise, strong smells and bright lights can be almost painful. This, coupled with difficulties in social interaction, means that parties, family gatherings and big birthdays drop off the radar.'I once saw a couple in their eighties who, after 50 years of marriage, realised what the problem was,' says Aston. 'They decided to stay together, but she bought a cottage up the road and he visited for meals. She could have friends and family over and he had space for his routine and interests. Quite a few couples decide to stay together but live apart.'Penny Jones, an accountant from Oxford, tried this, following the diagnosis of her husband Chris, an IT consultant, six years ago. Chris learnt about AS through a television programme while he was off work with stress. He subsequently saw a specialist who placed him high on the Asperger's scale.'We got together in 1995 and he'd always been very unusual,' says Penny. 'There are lots of positives about Asperger's. I like its straightforwardness. There's no game-playing. Chris was the first person I had met who just let people be themselves. Most men want you to be a bit more like this or more like that. Chris just accepts you. He's also very intelligent - he has an IQ of over 150 - and very funny.'However, AS was hard to live with. 'He did lock himself in the room with the computer,' she says. 'We were under the same roof but not together. Rarely did we share the preparation and clearing away of meals because Chris couldn't stand the noise of cutlery and crockery.'When their children were born - Luke is nine and Beth is seven - Chris found the chaos of family life even more difficult. 'It wasn't predictable and calm enough. Family holidays we gave up on,' she says. 'He would try his best but by day three, without his familiarity, his routine, his computer, you could see all his systems shutting down. Then he'd spend each day with a large crate of beer in front of the television while I took the children out. Chris drank vast quantities to cope with Asperger's - that was another problem.'When Chris moved out, the plan had been that they would remain a couple, but in the end this didn't work out. 'He drank far less and was clearly so much happier in his own space,' says Penny. 'He would spend a few hours with us, then go home to his bolthole and not talk to anyone for 24 hours. In the end, I couldn't cope with the massive periods of time alone.' The couple divorced last year.Conventional counselling isn't recommended for AS couples - in fact, it frequently makes things worse. 'Counselling works on empathy,' says Maxine Aston, 'helping you understand each other's point of view. That won't happen if you have AS. You might be told to spend ten minutes a day talking about your emotions. Someone with AS can't do it, feels pressurised and disappointment sets in.' For this reason, the NAS has a (small) database of couples counsellors who specialise in AS - of which Aston is one.There are many strategies that can help. One is to write things down instead of saying them. Another is for the non-Asperger's half in the relationship to spell things out in no uncertain terms. ('I am feeling sad and would like a hug'), rather than hope their partner will the cues. However, the key is understanding the Asperger's label, accepting its limitations and adjusting expectations. 'It's almost like blaming it on the Asperger's,' says Aston.The diagnosis that saved Keith and Sarah almost happened by accident - Sarah got a job working with ASpire, a charity that supports adults with Asperger's. The more she learnt, the more she recognised in Keith. 'At first, I thought it was just a mad, crazy Sarah idea,' he says. 'But as I researched it, the similarities became too great to ignore.'advertisementLearning about AS, he says, was 'life-changing'. Suddenly what Sarah describes as his 'isolated, biscuit-eating life' made sense. Keith had been bullied at school and gone through university with no friends at all. He'd had only two jobs in his life doing the same thing and two very short-lived relationships (the first at 31). 'From an early age you try to join the world, but gradually, with rejection and not being able to understand social situations, it becomes too taxing,' he says. 'I wanted relationships with women but didn't have the confidence, the tools or the means.'In Sarah, Keith has found the perfect partner. She works with AS adults for a living and now understands his thought processes and almost speaks his language. She can foresee stressful situations, accepts his frequent need to be alone and rarely asks for more than Keith can give.In return, she has a charming, quirky, logical and attentive partner who is still touchingly old-fashioned - he always opens doors for her, carries her shopping and whips off her glasses to clean them if he sees they are dirty. Most importantly, the two clearly love each other's company, share the same sense of humour - and have co-written a book, Asperger Syndrome - A Love Story (Jessica Kingsley, pound;12.99), to show that happy endings are possible, even if they're not quite the endings originally envisaged.There are no plans of marriage or moving in, and Keith certainly doesn't think he could cope with children. But they seem like soul mates. 'With Sarah, I get acceptance and understanding,' says Keith. 'I don't necessarily want to join the rest of the world - but I'd like someone to join me in mine. I'd like to know at the end of my life that there's been one person who got me. That's what Sarah does for me.' /200809/47533。

One out of three men in the ed States is under 5 feet 8 inches tall. You'd never guess the magnitude of the demographic from menswear.在美国,每三位男士当中就有一位身高低于5英尺8英寸(约1米72)。男装市场的统计资料绝对远远出乎你的意料。'They have stores for big and tall men, so why not for shorter men?' asks Josh Lefkowitz, who describes his height as 'five-foot-three and a half.' A New York public-relations executive, Mr. Lefkowitz likes to buy a jacket in size 36 short and take it to a tailor. To make a size seven shoe fit, he buys inserts to fill out the extra space.乔希·莱夫寇维兹(Josh Lefkowitz)是纽约一位高级公关主管,他说自己的身高是“5英尺3.5英寸”(约1米61)。他提出了这样一个疑问:“既然有针对身材高大男士的装店,怎么就没有专门面向矮个男士的呢?” 莱夫寇维兹喜欢买短36码外套,再拿到裁缝那儿修改。他买7码的鞋子,不过还得买点填充物塞进去之后才合脚。Yet when standard-size clothes are altered for a man like Mr. Lefkowitz, the final proportions can come out all wrong. Simply shortening a suit's hems and sleeves can leave the collar too broad, the pockets oversized, the armholes gargantuan, the elbow curves too low and the rear droopy.不过,如果把标准尺寸的装根据莱夫寇维兹的身材加以修改,最后出来的比例也许完全不对头。仅仅修短衣的下摆和袖子是远远不够的,领口、口袋、袖孔都还是太大,肘弯处太低,后摆也是耷拉着的。All this can make a small man look even smaller. 'Taller men can get away with having things look a little baggy,' says Mr. Lefkowitz. But the wrong fit 'can make us look schlumpy.'这样的改动只会让一个原本矮小的人更显矮小。莱夫寇维兹说:“个高的人穿件稍微宽松的衣,看着也还过得去。“而不合身的衣”穿在我们身上只会显得人很邋遢。”Height, for a man, is the ultimate power marker. An added inch of height is equivalent to an extra ,000 year of salary, on average, when it comes to attracting a mate, says Andrew Trees, author of 'Decoding Love,' a book about the science of attraction. Height also affects earnings -- though less dramatically: Each inch earns you about 0 more per year in salary after controlling for variables like education, he says.对于男性来说,身高是最具影响力的一项体貌特征。《解密爱情》('Decoding Love')一书探讨了有关两性吸引的科学,该书作者安德鲁·特里斯(Andrew Trees)说,身高增加一英寸,对异性的吸引力等同于年薪增加3万美元。他说,身高同时也会影响到一个人的收入,尽管作用没有那么明显:在不考虑诸如学历等因素的前提下,身高每增加一英寸,意味着你的年收入能增加600美元。Yet there is one thing that supersedes height: The perception of height. Men who got early growth spurts but wound up short are often perceived to be taller than they are, says Mr. Trees, suggesting that the reason lies in their carriage. The reverse is also true: Men who became tall later on are often perceived as shorter than they are -- possibly because they learned early to think of themselves as short.不过有另外一个因素可以取身高而代之,那就是:预期身高。特里斯先生说,那些小时候个子长得很快、成年后其实并不高的人通常会被认为比实际上要高,这可能与他们举手投足等仪态有关。反之亦然:那些长个比较晚的人通常会被看矮了──可能是因为他们早就认为自己个矮。This suggests that short men can seem taller or shorter, depending on how they present themselves. A key element is wearing clothes with the right proportions. A small man wearing oversized clothes risks looking like he's dressing up in Dad's clothes -- emphasizing his diminutive stature.这表明,个矮男士的打扮会使他们比实际身高显得高些或矮些。其中一个关键因素就是要穿比例协调的衣。小个子穿的衣尺码过大,很可能给人感觉是儿子穿了老爸的衣──只能愈发凸显身材的矮小。 /200903/65232。
