今年是閏年(閏日intercalary year or bissextile year))啊...
Once every four years, people born on Feb. 29 actually get to celebrate their birthday. That's right, Monday is leap day, the extra day added every fourth year to help fix the problem that while our calendar year is 365 days, the solar year — the amount of time it takes the Earth to circle the sun — is 365.24219 days.

February 29, also known as leap day or leap year day, is a date added to most years that are divisible by 4, such as 2016, 2020, and 2024. A leap day is added in various solar calendars (calendars based on the Earth's revolution around the Sun), including the Gregorian calendar standard in most of the world. Lunisolar calendars (whose months are based on the phases of the Moon) instead add a leap or intercalary month.[1]

In the Gregorian calendar, years that are divisible by 100, but not by 400, do not contain a leap day. Thus, 1700, 1800, and 1900 did not contain a leap day; neither will 2100, 2200, and 2300. Conversely, 1600 and 2000 did and 2400 will. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. Years not containing a leap day are called common years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year with 306 days remaining until the end of the year. In the Chinese calendar, this day will only occur in years of the monkey, dragon, and rat.

A leap day is observed because the Earth's period of orbital revolution around the Sun takes approximately six hours longer than 365 whole days. A leap day compensates for this lag, realigning the calendar with the Earth's position in the Solar System; otherwise, seasons would occur later than intended in the calendar year. The Julian calendar used in Christendom until the 16th century added a leap day every four years; but this rule adds too many days (roughly three every 400 years), making the equinoxes and solstices shift gradually to earlier dates. By the 16th century the vernal equinox had drifted to March 11, and the Gregorian calendar was introduced both to shift it back by omitting several days, and to reduce the number of leap years via the aforementioned century rule to keep the equinoxes more or less fixed and the date of Easter consistently close to the vernal equinox.[1][2]

穿衣服總有無法避免的小狀況,像出來見客的衣服標籤。或是一時忘記拉的拉鏈,面對超糗情況聽不懂就更尷尬啦!

拉鏈沒拉 = fly is down / open

穿褲子最普遍的糗事應該就是拉鏈沒拉(或是肥肉導致拉鏈崩開)吧!雖然大家熟悉的拉鏈說法可能是 zipper ,但 fly 除了我們熟悉的飛、蒼蠅之外,也可以當作拉鏈!所以當有人跟你說 your fly is open 的時候就是說你拉鏈是開的。而另一個說法 barn door is open 是英文中的委婉用法 (euphemism),也是一樣的意思噢!

Your fly is down! Do it up, you don’t want to go on a date like that, do you?
你的拉鏈沒拉!把它拉起來,你不會想那樣去約會的,對吧?

衣服穿反 = inside out / backwards

這兩個詞雖然都是穿反,但是反的方式是不一樣的!inside out 指的是裡外穿反(縫線會全部露出來的那種),而 backwards 是前後穿反,如果褲子穿起來時拉鏈在後面就要說 backwards ! 順帶一提,近期上映的皮克斯動畫電影「腦筋急轉彎」的原文名字就是 Inside Out!

Annie, your T-shirt is inside out! Put it on properly!
Annie,你的 T-shirt 穿反了!把它穿好!

穿錯腳 = on the wrong foot

”四捨五入” 的說法是用 round 這個動詞

這種行為則叫 rounding

要叫人家把一個數字四捨五入的話, 就是用 round it / round the number 這樣的說法

如果要指定把一個數字四捨五入為十位數或百位數

叫做 round it / round the number to the nearest ten / hundred

比如 123 如果是十位數為基礎則四捨五入後會是 120

但若以百位數為基礎則會是 100

把一個含有小數的數字四捨五入到整數, 叫 round it to the nearest whole number

到小數點後一位則是 round it to the nearest tenth

後兩位則是 round it to the nearest hundredth, 以此類推

一個單詞包含對立意思,那你到底是幾個意思嘛?!!
小明給長官送紅包時,兩人的對話頗有意思。

長官:「你這是什麼意思?」

小明:「沒什麼意思,意思意思。」

長官:「你這就不夠意思了。」

小明:「小意思,小意思。」

長官:「你這人真有意思。」

小明:「其實也沒有別的意思。」

長官:「那我就不好意思了。」

小明:「是我不好意思。」

泰戈爾 
               1                    
   夏天的飛鳥,飛到我的窗前唱歌,又飛去了。             
   秋天的黃葉,它們沒有什麼可唱,只歎息一聲,飛落在那裏。      
  stray birds of summer come to my window to sing and fly away. 
  and yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall 
  there with a sign. 
               2                    
   世界上的一隊小小的漂泊者呀,請留下你們的足印在我的文字裏。    
  o troupe of little vagrants of the world, leave your footprints in my words.
