B: guess what! I know something you don't know!
  L: what's that?
  B: how many planets are there in the solar system?
  L: that's easy. Everyone knows that there are nice.
  B: not anymore! Can you believe it? They've decided that Pluto is not a planet anymore!
  L: nice try. I wasn't born yesterday, you know.
  B: I'm dead serious. They've decided that it's too small to be a planet, but actually they haven't yet agreed on how big something has to be in order to be a planet anymore.
  L: that sounds crazy. They can't just change their mind about things like that.
  B: yes, they can. If you remember correctly, people used to believe that the world was flat.
  L: I suppose you're right. They also used to think that they were so important that the sun revolved around them, not the other way around.
  B: we actually know relatively little about space and the cosmos.
  L: do you think that we'll one day be able to travel to another planet for a vacation?
  B: I suppose we could actually live on a planet outside of the milky way.
  L: do you think we'll ever get to meet an alien from outer space?
  B: I hope not. I think they would be a threat to those of us that lived on Earth.
  L: you're so old-fashioned. That's what people used to think about people from another country!
  B: point taken. Hopefully one day, we'll live in an interplanetary society.
  你猜怎么找?我知道壹些你不知道的事!
  什么事?
  你知道太阳系有多少行星吗?
  很简单,大家都知道有九大行星.
  现在可不是啦!你相信吗?他们决定取消冥星的行星资格了.
  想得美.别哄我了,我又不是三岁小孩.
  我是认真的.他们认为冥星太小了,不够做行星的资格,不过他们尚未对行星的体积究竟该有多大达成壹致的意见.
  这听起来简直是疯了!他们不能对这种事情随便乱改主意.
  是的,他们可以.如果你还记得的话,以前人们曾经以为地球是平的.
  我觉得你说得有道理.他们过去还认为人类是特别重要的,以至于太阳都是围绕着我们转的,不存在其他运行的方式.
  可能我们队空间和宇宙的了解只是非常有限的壹点点.
  你觉得未来我们有可能去其他星球度假吗?
  我想我们可以居住在银河系以外的其他星球上.
  你觉得咱们会在外太空遇到外星人吗?
  我希望不会.我觉得他们可能对生活地球上的人类是壹种威胁.
  你的思想可太老派了.这就好像人们以前对外人的看法壹样!
  知道啦.希望未来有壹天,我们能生活在壹个行星际的社会里.
  Nice Try
  表面上好像是在夸别人"做得好、干的漂亮",而多数情况下意思是"想得美、得了吧",是壹种反讽.
  另外,当别人很努力做某事却失败的时候,你也可以拍拍肩膀对他说Nice try,这时就有鼓励、安慰的意思了.所以大家要把握好说话的语境.
  Nice try. I wasn't born yesterday, you know.
  想得美.我又不是三岁小孩儿.
  Nice try, but do you think I would believe that?
  得了吧,你觉得我会相信吗?
  point taken: used to say that you accept that somebody else is right when they have disagreed with you or criticized you (接受相反的意见)同意,好吧,算你有理
  Point taken. Let's drop the subject. 好吧.咱们就抛开这个话题吧.
  revolve around/round something: to move around something in a circle 绕...旋转(或做圆周运动)
  The earth revolves around the sun. 地球绕太阳公转.
  revolve around/round somebody/something: to have somebody/something as the main interest or subject 围绕;以...为中心;将...作为主要兴趣(或主题)
  His whole life revolves around surfing. 他壹生都在做冲浪运动.
  She thinks that the world revolves around her. 她以为整个世界都以她为中心.
  The discussion revolved around the question of changing the club's name. 讨论的中心问题是改变俱乐的名称.
