Meet Your Ancestors (All of Them)

by Tim Urban

上期我们追溯到了我们的[曾x 220,000]祖父,第一个直立行走的人。

下文一共三段,第二段直接是汉语。练习是翻译第一段和第三段。

挺有意思的,懒得写可以写大意。


(能不能看到这个图片看命吧,,,我尽力了。。。)

Your great550,000 grandfather [我们的[x 550,000]祖父] was a very important monkey. Not only is he the ancestor of every living human, he’s the ancestor of every living chimpanzee[黑猩猩] as well. This is the last time in history we shared an ancestor with chimps[黑猩猩,类人猿]—scientists believe 6 million years ago is about the time the Hominini tribe【人类部落】 split into two branches that would eventually result in humans and chimps. This means that around that time, there existed one monkey—who had one child that went on to become the ancestor of all humans and another child that went on to become the ancestor of all chimps.


我们的[x 1千5百万]祖父跟我们长得很不像。他生活在一个不太幸运的年代,他需要和比他大很多的恐龙们一同生存。那个时候,哺乳动物属于个头很小的二等公民,而且大多必须生活在树上。直到大约六千六百万年前,大量的小行星撞击地球,最终导致恐龙灭绝了(耶~)。于是这个不爱出风头的家伙存活了下来,变成了现在所有灵长类动物的祖先


I want you to take a moment and absorb the fact that your great55,000,000 grandfather was a rodent 【啮齿类】. More specifically, he was a Eutherian【真哺乳亚纲动物】—the first placental mammal. So if there’s a whale out there with a similar blog who plans on writing an article like this one, tracing his father’s father and so on, he’s on his own up to this point, but from here forward he can just plagiarize this article and it’ll apply perfectly for whales too.
