technobabel 寫:All the happy singles knows that time is not on their side.
Like all the airplanes waiting for the control tower's instruction to land.
All landings need to be perfect or nearly perfect. Otherwise you might as while stay afloat forever.
That is the resounding attitude.
But, sooner or later both altitude and attitude will have to take a nose dive.


In my words , it would sound like this:

We're all kites flying free in the sky.
Some lose control of themselves,
so they tumble mumble all the way up,
all the way down, flipping.

Some tangle like a tango,
with another one all the time, or
with one another some other time, which
is exciting while sometimes their strangle
led to such tremendous crash.

Still, some others, struggle
with all their strength while
there's nothing after them.

Some find the wind beneath their wings.
Some choke on the smoke soaring into the blues
from the chimney of a cozy cottage or a man's cigarette.

When the time comes,

Hope the kite may glide itself gently down to the solid land,
without fear.

We're still here.

Your kite flying experience is too traumatic for me to make the metaphoric connection. :wink:
The moral of your story seems to be that one just need a better kite and a steady wind condition.

But, I am sure a blackbird would know exactly what you are talking about.

ummm......I didn't say all those different types of flying were
the reflection of mine la ..... they're mostly stories I've
seen and heard about heehee....

Is it that you actually drench yourself in YouTube every day?
This makes me start smelling the possibility that you might be one of their
stockholders.....ha....

My attempt to use songs in Youtube as "conversation stimulator" hasn't been very well received here. My uneasiness grows with every Youtube post. Songs do have their funny ways of staying in your head. Youtube provides an easy access to those songs that you can never forget.

Once there was a movie called "High Fidelity"
The main character is a record store owner, he knows his materials inside out. Despite that fact, he isn't the most dynamic/well-rounded person when comes to relationships of romantic kind.

Honestly, you've done a great job, I mean it.
The reason you think of the "conversation stimulating" not
working as expected, which I doubt so, could be a result of
people's feeling a little discouraged, too shy, or perhaps just
nervous to make a feedback towards your posts, since they're
all in English, not to mention the brilliant ways of expression
plus bigger words you chose.

Although the conversation stimulating part isn't quite active yet,
I'm sure there's a lot of "thoughts stimulating" going on, but that
we aren't aware of. It's all good. Just keep up the good work, we
love it, and that's for real!~

Speaking of YouTube's providing us the access to songs, TV
shows, movies...etc., I began searching for some old MVs on
YouTube, and guess what I found. Tons of old treasure! Thanks
to you ~

Oh, BTW, I haven't seen that movie (High Fidelity) before, but hey,
John Cusack, Jack Black..I recognize these two! But here's my
question: why does Jack Black nearly always take the filthy dirty
characters in most of his films? Look at him dance... I can't watch... haha...

My seemingly inexhaustible resourcefulness to elicit what is on Youtube shouldn't impress anybody. It is not a very rewarding skill and it's no rocket science to say the least. I just happened to know what I know. By doing so, hopefully somebody in Yoyo managed to learn a thing or two with my posts, but only time will tell.

How do you say "only time will tell" in Chinese?



Youre leaving now
Its in your eyes
Theres no disguising it
It really comes as no surprise
To find that you planned it all along

I see it now
Becomes so clear
Your insincerity
And me all starrey-eyed
To think that I would have know by now

{chorus}
Now, sure as the sun will cross the sky
This lie is over
Lost, like the tears that used to tide me over

{only time will tell}
One thing is sure
That time will tell
{only time will tell}
If you were wrong
The brightest ring around the moon
Will darken when I die

{chorus}

{repeat first verse}
{repeat second verse}
{chorus}

{only time will tell}
Youre on your own
Inside your room
{only time will tell}
Youre claiming victory
You were just using me
And there is no one you can use now

{only time will tell}
One thing is sure
That time will tell...

Kooper 寫:確實, 真正的擇偶條件是很難將之條列化的, 往往具有某一項優點就同時代表者另一項缺點的存在.
例如"膽大"與"心細"其實就是兩個相衝突的條件, 很少人能夠兩者兼具.
我的感覺是,抉擇的藝術其實就是在權衡輕重吧, 所以其實是無法列出任何general selection guideline的, 只能
就特定的對象, case by case的分析, 決定他整體是否可以讓你接受吧.


其實我一直很想問,「膽大」和「心細」這兩者為什麼會是衝突對立的特質啊?
膽大的衝突不是懦弱嗎?....
心細的衝突不是粗枝大葉嗎?.....@@
另外,你說「具有某一項優點就同時代表者另一項缺點的存在」,是不是像,
如果「膽大」是一個優點,但是如刃的雙鋒,也可能成為缺點?...
你這幾句話,困擾我很久了~~呼呼

這裡的膽大應是指大膽地作出具冒險性地決定, 心細的人, 雖然比較不容易遺漏犯錯, 但容易因為考慮太多而猶豫不決, 或因為擔心風險而作出次佳的選擇.

"具有某一項優點就同時代表者另一項缺點的存在"的例子:

1. 伴侶雖然常常花時間陪伴妳, 可能同時也沒什麼事業心, 或錢賺的少. 反之亦然.
2. 另一伴很重視生活情趣, 生性浪漫, 可能同時不善理財, 不善處理家務. 反之亦然.

膽大 -bold, audacious, risk-taking
心細 -micro-manage, attention to details, fussy, unforgiving

Strategically one can be 膽大, but 心細 during its planning and execution.
No conflicts there.
