文冤阁大学士:另类的《大学文科新生指南》

朱绩崧是复旦大学英文系教师,常以“文冤阁大学士”为名在网络间对英语学习及本科教育提出臧否建议。最近,他撰写了一份《大学文科新生指南》,虽然语气不乏嘲讽的地方,但的确以过来人的经历对文科生的本科阶段提出了中肯建议。

精致利己主义的根本原则:三种事不做。

一、不能增长知识、开阔眼界的事。
二、不能锻炼体魄、益寿延年的事。
三、不能合法赚钱的事。

Once-in-a-lifetime Hiking:环勃朗峰(Tour de Mont Blanc)路书 -PART 1
必须指出,环勃朗峰不适合徒步新手。装备和大部分长线徒步一样,但因沿途硬件良好,无需帐篷、睡袋、地垫等扎营设备(2000米以下禁止扎营,此外当然也有不少年轻人体力好愿意一路扎营),所以最重要的几样装备是:一个好的背包、两根登山杖(我的是Black Diamond折叠Z杖,适于托运)、一双好鞋(高帮硬底防水这些就不必说了)、水袋和水壶(两个都要,一个是徒步中喝水方便,一个是机动灵活使用)、雨衣、睡袋内胆(越轻越好,很多Refuge是大通铺,被褥不怎么换)。膝关节不好如我者,建议采购保尔芬护膝,篮球运动员常用,穿上后有类似风火轮的作用。其他如肠胃药、防晒霜、遮阳帽、头灯、转换插头、充电宝什么的就不说了。实际上,很多装备都可以在夏穆尼和库马耶采购,但是鞋还是练一练再上路,不磨脚。

Trekking the tour of Mont Blanc: Complete two-way trekking guide (by 功德无量Kev Reynolds)

公认最权威的TMB徒步指南。由于纸质书不便、路上实际极少掏出来看(主要靠路标),但Day One迷路困惑时靠它指明了方向(救命!),做行程、订住宿、了解次日路程详情(尤其是路线选择、海拔变化、亮点难点)、临时改变计划等等都靠这本书。在夏穆尼和库马耶的书店都可以买到,当然最好还是早早就买上一本读懂读透。

Baby User Manual: 2017 Edition - The New Yorker

Never underestimate Baby. Baby knows your weaknesses and your darkest fears. In an effort to challenge you, Baby will constantly attempt self-harm. It is your job to thwart these efforts and keep Baby alive. Baby will not thank you for this. In fact, Baby will likely be very angry.

As soon as Baby is capable of operating Adult’s iPhone or other mobile device (typically at four to six weeks), Baby shall be given priority in using it for entertainment purposes. It will be Baby’s decision whether to destroy it, cover it in mashed potatoes, or delete all photos on the device.

Baby shall be offered access to all of the same fashions as Adult. Just because he grows out of anything you buy him within weeks doesn’t mean Baby shouldn’t have skinny jeans and the latest Air Jordans.

When Baby enters the subway car, all Adults shall humbly offer their seats. Baby has likely been napping, eating, and playing for several hours, and is exhausted.

If Adult dies during this process, another nearby Adult will take over. As they say, It takes a village.

Lunch with M.

Conceived in France at the beginning of the last century, the Michelin guide today has editions in twenty-three countries and is one of the best-selling restaurant guides in the world. It operates on the principle that only reviews by anonymous, professionally trained experts can be trusted for accurate assessments of a restaurant’s food and service.

Only twenty-six three-star restaurants exist in France, and only eighty-one in the world.

Since coming to America, Michelin has learned that its brand of Gallic opacity and unapologetic gastronomic élitism has been a tougher sell here than it was in Europe or Asia.

I asked Maxime how she chooses what to order.

You’re looking for something that really tests a number of quality ingredients and then something that’s a little complex, because you want to see what the kitchen can do, she said. We would never order something like a salad. We rarely order soup.

Automobiles were still a rarity on roads in France. The brothers had the idea that a guidebook to hotels in the French countryside would encourage people to climb into a car (equipped with Michelin tires) and hit the open road.

the star system for ranking food, with one star denoting a very good restaurant in its class; two stars excellent cooking, worth a detour; and three stars exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.

The French chef Paul Bocuse, who helped create nouvelle cuisine in the nineteen-sixties, and whose restaurant near Lyons has held a three-star Michelin ranking for a record forty-five years, has said, Michelin is the only guide that counts.

criticisms often levelled against Michelin: that its approach to restaurants and food is too wedded to an ideal of formal, technical accuracy that is not applicable to restaurants outside France.

For a restaurant like Jean Georges, filling out the reports would take two to three hours. A Chinese restaurant might take an hour.

The Comfort Principle: Spend Money Where You Spend Your Time
Say the typical mediocre Office Depot chair costs $100, and a really good chair—a spine-conforming, back-supporting, muscle-relaxing specimen—costs $800. If you spread your $700 over the course of 2600 hours, that comes out to about 25 cents an hour. Would you pay a quarter an hour to be comfortable? My guess is yes. The numbers look even better when you realize you won't switch chairs every year. Even at five years—which is short for a quality chair—you're down to 5 cents per hour.

Tasting Tokyo, Guided by a Chef
Tokyo, a city Mr. Kinch first visited in 1989 and returns to regularly, is, he said, “the greatest eating city in the world.”

“It’s pretty hard to top the quality of food and the amount of restaurants and the diversity of styles that goes on there,” he said.

“It’s really hard to find bad food there,” he added.
