\together.

With great effort, I said calmly, \

Look at me, an ingenious student, a tremendous intellectual, a man with an assured future.

“错误类比,”波莉立即回应。

“你的前提是约会就如同吃东西。可你不是蛋糕,你是个男孩。”

我又笑了笑,不过不觉得那么有趣了,同时还不能表露出我害怕她学得太好了。 再错几步我可就无法挽回了。我决定改变策略,转而尝试奉承她的办法。 “波莉,我爱你。请答应做我的女朋友,没有你我什么也不是。” “文不对题,”她说。

“你还真是能在遇到逻辑谬误时一一辨别它们了,”我说,心里的希望已经开始动摇。

“不过不要对它们太死板,我是说这都是些学术的东西。你知道,学校里学的东西和实际生活根本没有什么联系。”

“绝对判断,”她说道,“而且,你自己教的东西应该自己身体力行。” 我一下跳了起来,怒火中烧,“你到底愿不愿意做我的女朋友?” “我不愿意,”她答道。

“为什么?”我追问道。“我对另一位求爱者更感兴趣――罗伯和我重归于好了。” 我极力地保持着平静,说道:“你怎么会甩了我而选择罗伯?

看看我,一个聪明过人的学生,一个不同凡响的学者,一个前途无量的人。

42 我极力地保持着平静,说道:“你怎么会甩了我而选择罗伯?看看我,一个聪明过人的学生,一个不同凡响的学者,一个前途无量的人。再看看罗伯,一个肌肉发达的蠢材,一个有了上顿没下顿的家伙。你是否能给我一个充足的理由,为什么要选择跟他?”

43 “喔,这是什么假设啊!为了让像你这样聪明的人能够明白,我这么说吧,”波莉反驳道,声音里充满了讽刺,“事情的真相是——我喜欢罗伯穿皮衣。是我让他同意你们的协议的,这样他就能拥有你的夹克!”

Unit 2

The confusing pursuit of beauty

If you're a man, at some point a woman will ask you how she looks.

You must be careful how you answer this question. The best technique is to form an honest yet sensitive response, then promptly excuse yourself for some kind of emergency. Trust me, this is the easiest way out. No amount of rehearsal will help you come up with the right answer.

The problem is that men do not think of their looks in the same way women do. Most men form an opinion of themselves in seventh grade and stick to it for the rest of their lives. Some men think they're irresistibly desirable, and they refuse to change this opinion even when they grow bald and their faces visibly wrinkle as they age. Most men, I believe, are not arrogant about their looks. If the transient thought passes through their minds at all, they like to think of themselves as average-looking. Being average doesn't bother them; average is fine. They don't affix much value to their looks, or think of them in terms of aesthetics. Their primary form of beauty care is to shave themselves, which is essentially the same care they give to their lawns. If, at the end of his four-minute allotment of time for grooming, a man has managed to wipe most of the shaving cream out of the strands of his hair and isn't bleeding too badly, he feels he's done all he can.

Women do not look at themselves this way. If I had to guess what most women think about their appearance, it would be: \woman may be, her perception of herself is eclipsed by the beauty industry. She has trouble thinking I'm beautiful, She magnifies the smallest imperfections in her body and imagines them as glaring flaws the whole world will notice and ridicule. 令人困惑的对美的追求

如果你是一位男士,肯定在某个时候会有女士问你她看起来怎么样。

对于如何应对这个问题,你一定得小心。最好的对策就是给一个诚实但又谨慎的回答,然后借口有急事马上脱身。相信我,这是最简单的方法。对于她的这一问题,无论你事先练习多少次,都不会找到正确答案。
