大家好, 好耐都沒有寫文章了…只是與大家分享一些圖片和影片…原因不用多說, 就是一個字 "懶" 之過. 但今年突然想同大家一起想想一個問題 "你, 我, 他/她 的 86,400 元 的 Account . . ."
每天銀行都會存入 $ 86,400 到你的戶口. 你可以用那 $ 86,400 買你喜歡的事物, 做你喜歡做的事, 但是你不可能把那 $ 86,400 留下明天用. 因為每晚 12 時, 銀行就會把你餘下的金額全數消除.
因此, 不論你用/不用, 你每天只有 $ 86,400 .
最後, 銀行有權在任何時候, 更改 / 結束這個允諾. 你會如何用那 $ 86,400 ?
你會把所有錢買下名牌嗎? 食盡天下美食嗎? 定係, 用來旅行呢? 大家好好想想吧…!!
人, 每天都只有 86,400 秒的時間, 不論你用來買盡天下名牌, 食盡天下美食; 定係, 什麼都不做…!!
那 86,400 秒每天都會從你的人生帳戶中扣除.
到第二天, 仍然給你 86,400 秒…
你無法把那 86,400 秒留待明天用.
現在, 你又會如何用你生命帳戶中的 86,400 秒?

"Every morning, a bank would open an account in his name containing 86,400 dollars. There were only two rules: "The first rule is that everything you fail to spend is taken from you that night. You can't cheat, you cant' switch the unspent money to another account: you can only spend it. But when you wake next morning, and every morning after that, the bank opens a new account for you, always eighty-six thousand, four hundred dollars, for the day. Rule number two is that the bank can break off the game without warning. It can tell you at any time that it's over, that it's closing the account and there won't be another one. Now, what would you do?"
"We all have that magic bank account: it's time! A big account, filled with fleeting seconds. Every morning when we wake up, our account for the day is credited with eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds, and when we go to sleep every night, there's no carryover into the next day. What hasn't been lived during the day is lost; yesterday has vanished. Every morning the magic begins again, with a new line of credit of eighty-six hundred seconds. And don't forget rule nuumber two: the bank can close our account at any time and without any warning. At any moment, life can end. So what do we do with our daily ration of eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds? Aren't seonds of life more important than dollars?"
