>Pick up trash in waterways

划船游欧洲顺便捡垃圾

To bring awareness to the problem of water pollution, Greenkayak, a Denmark-based environmental group, is letting travelers kayak for free on a number of Europe's rivers and lakes - as long as they pick up any garbage they find along the way.

为提高人们对水污染问题的认识,总部位于丹麦的环保组织"绿色皮艇"让游客们在欧洲的一些河流和湖泊中免费划皮艇,只需他们在沿途捡捡垃圾。

Greenkayakers are provided with the basics: a life-vest, a paddle, a trash picker, a bucket for the garbage, and two hours of free kayak-time.

"绿色皮艇"提供了基本的装备:一件救生衣、一只桨、垃圾捡拾器、垃圾桶和两个小时的免费皮划艇时间。

You don't need to be an experienced kayaker or an avid swimmer, as you won't need to make direct physical contact with the water.

因为不需要与水进行直接的身体接触,你不需要是经验丰富的皮划艇运动员或狂热的游泳爱好者。

Since the program began in April 2017,Greenkayakers have collected nearly 24,000 pounds of trash - including plastic bags, bottles,lighters, shoes, and tote bags - from European waterways.

自2017年4月该项目启动以来,参与者已经从欧洲水域收集了近2.4万磅的垃圾,包括塑料袋、瓶子、打火机、鞋子和大手提袋。



Super Macho T

>Shirt gives you buff physique

神奇T恤让你秒变肌肉男

Skinny Japanese men looking to get that coveted "slim and macho" look without putting in the work and breaking a sweat at the gym now achieve their goal pretty much instantly. All they have to do is put on the Super Macho T, a special undershirt that instantly gives them a buff physique.

想要"又瘦又壮"的日本纸片男不必在健身房挥汗如雨了,他们的目标分分钟就能实现,只需穿上特制的汗衫"超级壮汉T恤"就可以立刻"拥有"健美体格。

Developed by a Japanese company named "His Company Group", the Super Macho T features inflatable air bags that go into small pockets located around the chest and upper arm areas and visually enhance the wearer's chest, biceps and triceps.

"超级壮汉T恤"由一家名为"他公司集团"的日本企业研发,这款汗衫的前胸后背和上臂部位的小口袋都有可充气的气垫,可以从视觉上增大穿着者的胸肌、肱二头肌和肱三头肌。

The cool thing about this system is that you can inflate the air bags as much as you want, allowing you to go for an inconspicuous moderately toned look,or an absolute gym addict.

这个机关的妙处在于你可以随心所欲地往气垫里充气,你可以选择让自己看起来稍微有点肌肉,也可以把自己打造成健身狂人。

It's currently being sold on Amazon, for 7,980 yen.It's not the cheapest undershirt, but it beats going to the gym, right?

目前这款T恤在亚马逊上有售,价格为7980日元(约合505元人民币)。这个价格不算便宜,但总比健身强吧?
