有没有那一瞬间你觉得生活就是个巨大的阴谋?(上)

2018-11-22    澳门银河网上娱乐boardpanda    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

Have you ever bought a train ticket or paid extra to park at a hotel, and thought to yourself 'hmm, it seems like they are ripping me off." Well, according to these Reddit users, you are right. One user under the name eggaboy has asked people to name "the biggest everyday scam that people put up with", and some of the answers are truly eye-opening. From lottery tickets to extremely expensive water bottles, this list proves that all of us live in a world where everything is a scam. 

你有没有试过在买火车票或者住酒店还要付停车费的时候在心里想,“呃......我怎么感觉我被坑了。”好吧,你不是唯一一个有这种感觉的人。Reddit上有一名叫eggaboy的用户在上面让大家谈谈“生活中最大的阴谋”,有些回答真的让人大开眼界。从买彩票到超级贵的矿泉水,这些回答证明了,我们生活的这个世界充满了各种阴谋。
 
The price of feminine hygiene products. Even from a dude's perspective, they are ludicrously priced for a necessary item.
女性卫生用品。即使从男性的角度来看,这些日用品的价格也很离谱。


Traffic. 
交通。

Why the hell do I have to come into the office every day? Most of my job can be done remotely, sitting at home. I don't need to burn gas, waste my time, and get aggravated every day shuttling back and forth. 
我为什么要每天去办公室上班?明明这些工作我都可以在家远程完成。这样我就可以节省事件和汽油,也不用来来回回地跑了。
 
Built-in obsolescence.
故意生产有缺陷的产品。

Consumers spend good money to buy products that are designed to fail or become obsolete in order to stimulate further sales. Not only that, but replacement parts become unavailable or are so expensive to buy and install that consumers end up replacing the item completely, even though it should have much more useful life.
消费者花了很多钱买的产品其实本身在设计的时候就有缺陷,这样就会缩短使用寿命,从而刺激消费。不仅如此,商家会把这些产品做成不可更换零部件的,或者提高安装零件的费用,这样一来,消费者只能再买新的,虽然本来商品的使用寿命不应该这么短。
 
Black Friday sales. The thing that made me realize how f**ked it all is was working in a furniture store. We were selling these small storage ottomans for Black Friday. Regular price: $39.99, Sale price: $19.99. You know how much we paid for them? A f**king dollar. 
黑色星期五大促销。在家具店工作才让我意识到黑五促销是多么扯淡。我们当时在黑色星期五卖这些小沙发椅。原价:$39.99。促销价:$19.99。你知道我们多少钱买的吗?只要一美元!
 
Every now and then I come across a video where some pastor magically "heals/cures" a person in church by saying some lines and touching the person's head. In one of th videos, the pastor was suggesting to the person that if they bought his DVD, then they would heal faster. I find it ridiculous that people use religion and faith to instill fear and then scam innocent people.
我时不时会看到这种视频:一个牧师在教堂里说几句台词和抚摸这个人的头,就能神奇地“治好”这个人。在其中一段视频里,一位牧师向人们建议,如果他们买了他的DVD,他们就会愈合得更快。我觉得可笑,人们利用宗教信仰来灌输恐惧,然后欺骗无辜的人。


 
My favorite is the "FAT FREE FOOD" on a bag of Twizzlers. Thank god this high-calorie compressed sugar gel doesn't have any fat in it. My diet is secure!
我觉得最搞笑的是,一袋扭扭糖的袋子上写着“不含脂肪”。感谢上帝,这么个高热量的压缩糖果里面居然没有脂肪,真是感人。我可以放心的吃了!


Listing prices as $xx.99 to make them seem cheaper.
把价格标称$xx.99,让它看起来更便宜

It's a psychology trick. It works. We see 199.99 and think "That is less than 200." But it's exploiting human security vulnerabilities. And worst of all, we could have all these beautiful, round numbers. But instead we end up with a bunch of nines everywhere. 
这是一个利用人类心理的诡计。而且确实很管用。我们看到199.99时就会觉得,“连200都不到。”但实际上,这是在利用人类的一个弱点。最可怕的是,本来我们可以看到这些简单好看的整数,而现在,到处都是各种9。
