Seven reasons to never get up early
七个绝不早起的原因/ 早起七宗罪(不知道后面的可以不可以
As US academics find that early risers are less ethical late at night, here’s why you should stay in bed.
美国学者研究发现早起的人到了晚上更爱耍流氓,这就是为什么你该呆在床上。
This morning, like every morning, I woke up at 6am. I immediately regretted it.
今天早晨,像平时一样,我6点钟起床。但是立马就后悔了。
As a natural night-owl who enjoys the evenings, I spend most of the day feeling bleary and disorientated before discovering all manner of fascinating books, television shows and phone conversations at 10pm, the time when I should be falling asleep. Life goes on in perpetual state of jetlag and, as US academics discover that early risers are more likely to behave dishonestly and cheat during night time hours, I heartily support the implied conclusion that waking before sunrise is a terrible idea.

作为热爱夜晚生活的夜猫子,我白天大多时候都睡眼惺忪,晕头转向,这一状态会持续到晚上十点。这时我开始找到自己的生活节奏——读些有趣的书,看电视剧以及煲电话粥,凡此种种。而这个时间点按照正常人的生活习惯我应该去会周公。我的日子过得好像一直在倒时差,而既然美国学者发现早起的人更容易在晚上撒谎、不守规矩,我真心地支持他们的结论——天亮之前起床是个糟糕的主意。

The early bird may catch the worm but really, what kind of reward is a worm? Here are a few reasons why it’s better to stay under the duvet.
早起的鸟儿有虫吃,但是,说真的,一只虫代表了什么样的奖赏?以下几点理由告诉你为什么赖床是有好处的
Sunset is far nicer than sunrise
日落远比日出漂亮
Early morning is a terrible time, filled with last night’s grime and stale mess that has yet to be cleared up. Forgotten rubbish litters the streets, which are otherwise empty and forlorn, and a dull layer of dirt covers every surface. Larks may enjoy early mornings, but we should leave them to it—seeing the sunrise every day is an experience we can afford to miss.
大清早是令人讨厌的时辰,到处是前夜留下的污浊和未清理的杂乱。先不说街上随处可见的垃圾,街上也让人觉得空旷凄凉,感觉到处都蒙着一层灰鸟儿们或许能享受清晨的时光,那么我们应该把这些留给它们享受---对我们来说,舍弃每日看日出是轻而易举的。
