Making conversation with a stranger

与陌生人交谈
You’re at a café, you look over to the stranger next toyou and see that they’re reading the book you justfinished last week. Do you: A) Ask them how they’reliking it or B) Have a mild panic attack and go backto scrolling on your phone? It's okay, if it's fate, you’lleventually run into the stranger through somemutual friends on Facebook.
你坐在一家咖啡馆看向旁边的陌生人,发现他/她正在看你上周刚看完的书。你会:A)问他们喜不喜欢这本书;B)会轻微惊慌,然后继续玩手机?没关系,如果这是命运,说不定你最终会在脸书上通过一些共同的朋友认识他/她。
Walking down the street
顺着街道漫步
Whether you’re on a city street or a quiet suburban running path, without fail, you will end updoing some sort of awkward two-step to get around a slow-moving zombie walking whiletexting. Ugh, it is so irritating. Hold on, we need to stop in this crosswalk to check amessage.
不管你是漫步在城市的街道还是安静的郊区跑道,你必定会尴尬的绕过一个边发短信边缓慢行走的“僵尸”。额,太刺激了。等一等,我们需要在人行横道停下来看短信。
Living life without consequence
不计后果的生活
To all those that didn’t have to come of age with an advanced, internet-connected camerapointed at them during their most embarrassing and most inebriated moments, you can let outa big sigh. You made it! The rest of us will never be able to hold office because someone has apicture of us passed out next to a beer bong with inappropriate Sharpie drawings on our face.
对于那些没有被一台先进的、与互联网连接的摄像头拍摄过最尴尬、最苦恼时刻的人来说,你可以长吐一口气了。你成功了!我们其他人永远都做不到这一点,因为总会有人有我们的糗照:在一瓶啤酒旁喝的烂醉如泥,脸上还有用Sharpie笔画的丑图。

Our handwriting

我们的字迹
If you’re like us, you’re able to transfer thoughts into written words faster by typing thanputting pen to paper — and your penmanship shows it. Since we’re never without a laptop orsmartphone, it makes sense that kids don’t even need to know cursive anymore. But let’s bereal — handwriting has a certain romance to it. Which is more thrilling: A handwritten love noteaffixed to a bouquet of roses, or that same letter transcribed in size 12 Arial font in your Gmailinbox? And we still haven’t come across a font that dots its i’s with hearts.
如果你和我们一样,那你将想法打成文字的速度一定比手写要快——而你的书法也表明了这一点。因为我们的生活中从不缺少电脑或智能手机,所以孩子们不需要知道草书也说的过去。但现实一点——手写是具有浪漫情怀的。哪一个更让人兴奋呢?是一束附有一张手写的、表达爱意纸条的玫瑰花?还是在Gmail邮箱中收到用Arial字体打出来的同一封信件呢?而且目前为止还没有哪种字体能画出心型符号。
Dating
约会
In the olden times, couples used to meet through friends, family, or even on the street. Wewouldn’t dare chance talking to a random person during our work commute. But we’ll stick tofinding love on a phone app. No one would have the nerve to swipe left on us!
以前,情侣们都是通过朋友、家人介绍认识的;甚至有的是在大街上认识的。现在在上班通勤的路上,我们是不敢随意搭讪的。但我们仍会坚持在手机软件上寻找真爱。没有人敢不喜欢我们!
