1.If the pigeons have mangled feet, you are entering a bad neighborhood. Context: urban pigeons lose toes when they try to make nests out of debris on the ground. Dangerous neighborhoods are dirty, have debris and thus pigeons with missing toes.
1.如果鴿子的爪尖壞了,那你進入的地方臟亂差。原因:城市里的鴿子用地上的雜物筑巢時會把爪尖磨掉。危險的地區都很臟,到處是雜物,所以鴿子的爪尖都沒了。

2.If you want to make friends with a new group of people, talk to the guys. If you approach the girls, the guys will get jealous.
2.如果你想要和新認識的一群人交朋友,就跟男孩聊天。如果你接近女孩,男孩們會吃醋。

3.Homeless people (usually) are using your cash for drugs. (edit: offer support through other means)
3.無家可歸的人(通常)會用你給的錢去買毒品。(附:給他們別的幫助)

4.If you realize someone is stalking you, don’t run, act like you don’t see them. Walk somewhere public. Most kidnappers will act quick if they think their target is onto them.
4.如果你感覺有人跟蹤你,不要跑,要假裝沒看見他們,往人多的地方走。大多數綁匪覺得被目標發現了會快速采取行動。

5.If there is a riot, run with the crowd or you will get trampled like a pancake.
5.如果發生暴亂,要跟著人群一起跑,否則你會被人踩成煎餅。

6.Moss mostly grows on the north side of the tree.
6.苔蘚主要長在樹北面。

7.Public libraries have free computers.

1. Never show fear. No matter how scared you are ALWAYS act as if everything is fine. Most importantly relax your EYES.
1.永遠不要表現出恐懼。無論你有多害怕,永遠要表現得像沒事一樣,最重要的是要讓你的眼睛放松。

2. Practice dead eyes! This goes along with not being afraid. The first things predators look for is weakness and fear is weakness.
2.練習冰冷的眼神。這代表你不害怕。壞人首要尋找的就是弱點,而恐懼就是弱點。

3. Walk with your head up. Not only does it allow you to observe better what is going on around you but it shows you have confidence. Walking with your head down looks WEAK and unconfident PLUS unaware.
3.走路要昂首。這不僅能讓你更好地觀察周圍發生的事,而且顯得你很自信。低頭走路讓你看起來很弱小,不自信,而且不易察覺。

4. Choose your battles wisely. Fight only the fights you can win
4.明智地選擇戰斗。只有在能贏的時候才打架。

5. Practice strong body language. Talk with your hands. Use open gestures. Use facial expressions to provide context to your words.
5.練習強壯的肢體語言。說話時用手,使用開放的手勢,利用面部表情幫你表達。

6. LEARN TO LIE! Lies are powerful on the street. Why you ask? Because it allows you to shape PERCEPTION! If someone thinks your dad is CRAZY they'll be hesitant to mess with you.
6.學會說謊!謊言在社會上很有用。你想問為什么?因為謊言會幫你建立一種看法。如果有人認為你爸爸很瘋狂,他們想惹你時就會先想想。
