The famous director of a big and expensive movie planned to film a beautiful sunset over the ocean, so that the audience could see his hero and heroine (男女英雄) in front of it at the end of the film as they said goodbye to each other forever. He sent his camera crew (摄制组) out one evening to film the sunset for him.
The next morning he said to the men, “Have you provided me with that sunset?”
“No, sir,” the man answered.
The director was angry. “Why not?” he asked.
“Well, sir,” one of the men answered, “we’re on the east coast here, and the sun sets in the west. We can get you a sunrise over the sea, if necessary, but not a sunset.”
“But I want a sunset!” the director shouted. “Go to the airport, take the next flight to the west coast, and get one.”
But then a young secretary had an idea. “Why don’t you photograph a sunrise,” she suggested, “and then play it backwards? Then it’ll look like a sunset.”
“That’s a good idea!” the director said. Then he turned to the camera crew and said, “Tomorrow morning I want you to get me a beautiful sunrise over the sea.”
The camera crew went out early the next morning and filmed a bright sunrise over the beach in the middle of a beautiful bay (海湾). Then at nine o’clock they took it to the director. “Here it is, sir,” they said, and gave it to him. He was very pleased.
They all went into the studio. “All right,” the director explained, “now our hero and heroine are going to say goodbye. Run the film backwards so that we can see the ‘sunset’ behind them.”
The “sunset” began, but after a quarter of minute, the director suddenly put his face in his hands and shouted to the camera to stop.

Will it matter if you don’t take your breakfast? Recently a test was given in the United States. Those tested included people of different ages, from 12 to 83. During the experiment, these people were given all kinds of breakfasts and sometimes they got no breakfast at all. Special tests were set up to see how well their bodies worked when they had eaten a certain kind of breakfast. The results sow that if a person eats a proper breakfast, he or she will work with better effect (影响) than if he or she has no breakfast. This fact appears to be especially true if a person works with his brains. If a student eats fruit, eggs, bread and milk before going to school, he will learn more quickly and listen with more attention in class. Contrary to (与……相反) what many people believe, if you don’t eat breakfast, you will not lose weight.

Once upon a time a pair of crows (乌鸦) were continually upset by a cobra. Every year the snake crawled into their nest to eat the young crows before they learned to fly. They asked their clever friend, the jackal (豺) for help, what to do.
“Do not despair (绝望),” he told them. “ We cannot stop the cobra by force, as we are not strong enough. We will have to use craft (计谋) to destroy that greedy (贪婪的) beast, just do what I tell you and you will be safe.”
The male crow flew obediently (驯从) off to the river where a princess (公主) was bathing, guarded by all her servants. He snatched up the most beautiful necklace left on the shore and flew away just out of reach of the angry servants. Once they were running straight for the cobra’s home, he dashed a head and settled at the window pretending to be lost.
The cobra attacked at once. “Stupid crow,” he thought. “He only just manage to escape, but dropped this valuable necklace in his haste. What will his wife say? Now I will be the most magnificent cobra in the world.” However, no sooner had he put it on than the servants appeared and killed him to take the precious thing back.
That year, the crow’s family grew up healthy and safe.
