Carl Fox: He’s using you, kid[…] but you’re too blind to see it. 他在利用你[ …]但你眼盲看不到。

Bud Fox: No. What I see is a jealous old machinist who can’t stand the fact that his son has become more successful than he has! 不是這樣的,我看到的是一個老技工的妒忌,他受不了他的兒子比他更成功的事實。

Carl Fox: What you see is a guy who never measured a man’s success by the size of his WALLET! 你看到的是一個從來不會用金錢衡量一個人是否成功的人。

▲stake out a claim。stake out字面上的意思是「立樁標出地界」 。claim在這個片語當作名詞使用,指的是土地所有權。據說在1849年間美國擁進淘金者,他們抵達目的地做的第一件事便是佔有土地,在選中土地的四個角敲進木樁作為地界,然後向政府遞交一份claim,即要求土地所有權狀。這就是stake out a claim這個片語的由來。

 stake out [off] a claim:立界標表明(土地等的)所有權;堅持某物歸自己ðstake out something:to claim ownership of something

▲claim 可同時作為名詞[3]和動詞[4],有以下兩種解釋:1.要求(應得權利),認領,索取。2.主張,斷言,聲稱,自稱。

I personally tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public. As for love, I suppose we should rationalize affections. As to the meaning of life, it’s hard to pin down. I do believe there are different life courses for every individual. Regarding faith, I certainly believe that God is watching over us and trying hard to guiding us to the right path through consecutive unpredictable episodes in daily lives. The core spirit of capitalism disseminates a reward-oriented idea. What’s the fundamental bestiality of capitalism? What's the underlying causality of universal bullying phenomenon on the worldwide scale? Do the self-serving politicians gross over their wickedness by law or something? We have seen countless politicians who are talented at outwitting the crowds and working for their own advantages with flat-out lies. I would say, independent thinking might be the antidote. Set up a knowledge-oriented website is my very original core motive. I do hope this platform also provides entertaining and soul-healing articles. The best way to support the website is to help share the articles by Facebook, Line, Twitter or Instagram.
