       A man was walking along the coast and found a crystal bottle. He looked around and didn’t see anyone, so, he opened it.

       一名男子沿着海滨散步的时候发现了一个水晶瓶。他看四周无人,就把瓶子打开了。
       A ghost appeared and gratefully thanked the man for letting him out of the container. The ghost guaranteed, “For your kindness I will grant you a with, but only one.” 
       一个魔鬼从瓶子出来,对他非常感谢,因为他把他从瓶子里放出来了。魔鬼承诺:“为了感谢你的好意,我要满足你一个愿望,但只有一个。”
       The man thought for a minute and said, “well, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. I hear the landscape there is very spectacular. But I have never been able to because I’m afraid of flying, and cruises make me dizzy. I wish for a bridge to be spanned over the ocean, so I can drive there for wonderful sightseeing.”
       这男子想了一会说:“好,我总想去夏威夷。我听说那儿的风景很漂亮,但我从来没去过,因为我害怕坐飞机,邮轮又让我晕眩。我希望有座桥能架在海面上,这样我就可以开车去那观光了。”
        The ghost was taken aback a bit, but a after some thought said, “No, I can’t grant you this wish; think about the pilings needed to hold up the highway, and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the steel and concrete that would be needed. I’m sorry, you will have to choose another wish.”
       魔鬼后退了一步,过了一会说:“不,我无法满足你这个愿望。想一想要打多少个桩才能撑想这条高速路,桩要多长才能到那么深的海底。想想要多少钢筋和水泥。对不起,你还是选个别的愿望吧.”
       The man thought for a minute and then told the giant, “There is one other thing that I’m anxious to know. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why do they get upset at us so easily, what are their true desires and needs?”
这男子想了一会,对这个巨大的魔鬼说:“有另一件事我也很想知道,我想知道怎么理解女人。什么能使她们笑,使她们哭?为什么她们这么容易对我们生气?她们真正有愿望和需求是什么?“
       The ghost stared at him blinked a couple times, “So, do you want two lanes or four?”
       魔鬼盯着这男子,眨了两下眼说:“那,你想要两车道还是四车道的高速路?”
