The script of this programme 本节目台词
Feifei: 大家好，欢迎收听《地道英语》。我是冯菲菲，我的搭档是 Harry。
Harry: Hello there! And the expression we are going to look at in this programme is 'mind-blowing', or, 'to blow your mind'.
Feifei: 我们在这期节目来学习如何使用 mind-blowing 或 to blow your mind 这个表达。So anyway, Harry, I've heard you really like travelling.
Harry: Me? Yeah, I love to travel, to be free. Yeah, I've travelled.
Harry: All over. Europe, South East Asia, North Africa, Central America.
Feifei: 你去过的地方还真多！Europe 欧洲，South East Asia 东南亚，North Africa 北非，Central America中美洲。最难忘的是哪儿？So which was the best trip?
Harry: Hard to say, they were all great in their own way, but I think my trip to Cambodia really stands out.
Harry: Well, it's got scenery, beaches, nice food and all that stuff, but the temples at Angkor Wat - well, they just blew my mind.
Feifei: 你去了柬埔寨的吴哥窟，你说吴哥窟 blew your mind？
Harry: Yeah, it's an amazing place. It's got incredible statues, roads, waterways all abandoned in the forest. Truly mind-blowing.
Feifei: 如果一样东西，一件事或一个人特别出色，好的让人难以置信，甚至可能会让你停下脚步，放下手里的一切去静静的欣赏它的时候，我们就可以说这个东西 mind-blowing 或 it blew our minds。就好像有时我们说“某某事冲击了我们大脑”，这里“冲击大脑”表达的意思是正面的、褒义的。So what else can be mind-blowing?
Harry: Anything amazing. A painting, a film, a story.
Feifei: 我们还可以用 mind-blowing 来形容 nature 大自然、the ocean 海洋、the planets 星球等等。
Harry: Yes, those things are all totally mind-blowing if you stop and think about them.
- The latest tablet computer has an incredible camera and loads of other mind-blowing features.
- One of the most mind-blowing things about the universe is the distance between the planets.
- The battle scenes in the film were amazing - they just blew my mind.
Harry: So, to finish off, I thought I'd give you a mind-blowing fact about space and the universe. Something that will really blow your mind.
Feifei: 一个冲击大脑的常识 - let's hear it.
Harry: Did you know that every hour, the universe expands by a billion miles in all directions?
Feifei: 宇宙以每小时10亿英里的速度在不断向外扩张！That is mind-blowing!
Harry: I know - just mind-blowing.
Harry: Cockroaches? Yuck! What is it?
Feifei: Cockroaches can live for several weeks without their head.
Harry: They can live without their heads?! Well, that's just blown my mind. Join us again for more mind-blowing English on Authentic Real English.
