Medical researchers don't know much about head lice because they don't much care. The reason that they don't much care is, paradoxically, that they know a lot. That is, they know one important thing: there is no evidence that head lice transmit disease.

医学研究人员对头虱了解不多,因为他们不太在意. 自相矛盾的是,他们了解很多,所以他们不太在意. 也就是说,他们知道一件重要的事情:没有证据表明头虱传播疾病.

Our regulatory bodies strive to create honest dealings, fair trades, and a situation in which no one has an advantage over anyone else. But human beings aren't honest. And all trades are made because one person thinks he's getting the better of the other, and the other person thinks the same.

我们的监管机构努力创造诚实的交易,公平的交易,并在这种情况下没有人比其他人具有优势. 但是人类并不诚实. 进行所有交易是因为一个人认为自己正在从另一个人中得到好处,而另一个人也是如此.
