Air Crash vs Car Accident
I was told that there are much more car accidents on land than air crashes in the sky. This is true, but people often survive in car accidents, and seldom survive in air crash. One air crash for a person is enough. He is forever gone. If he is involved in several car accidents, he may still be alive and enjoy his life. So there is no comparability between the two.
I always think how we can reduce death rate in air crash. I suddenly think of the parachute. We can't provide every passenger with a parachute and train them how to use it before boarding. However, why can't we install three huge parachutes in the airplane, one in the front part, one in the middle and another in the tail part? The parachutes can automatically open in air crash just like the airbag in the car, which will hinder the pull of the gravity. Can anyone who reads this article spread my idea to the experts that they can make the invention? Thanks for saving life.

“What a miracle!” exclaimed Frank, “I revive in another body.”
The most he enjoyed was not dainties to eat, not games to play, not merry-making, but he had senses that he could sense the outside world, and had brain to think, to control his actions. If one cannot sense the outside world, he is dead. What he liked most was reading. He loved to know everything and to to widen his storage of knowledge, as much as possible. So his brain could be full of wisdom. He always thought that when he was dying, he could donate his brain to a young person so that he could revive in a young body and live another life. It was because his memory, his knowledge worked in that body. The brain in the original body no longer existed. It was replaced by his brain. His brain commanded every action, including thinking, speaking, etc., in this young body.
He was now over seventy, and one day he was found to suffer from gall blander cancer and he would not live long. In the same hospital he stayed, there was a young man who had an accident and died. He paid a lot of money to have his brain transplanted in the skull of the deceased. The operation was a great success. So he got another life.
Now he could learn more new things to make him more knowledgeable. He became the most learned person in the world as he had two lives added up. He was proud of it. If he could revive over and over again in this way, he might be able to live till the end of the world. But he forgot to reckon that his brain cells could not live forever.

名詞 farm 前習慣用介詞 on﹐如He works on a farm﹐不說 in a farm。
還有﹕at night﹐ in the night。要注意的是用at 時﹐night前面沒冠詞﹐有了冠
詞及其他修飾詞﹐就用in。同樣﹐at school﹐ in the school。
He sits on a chair (in an armchair) in the corner of the room. 用in表示在
屋角內﹐在房子裡面。 He stands at the corner of the street. 用at表示位置﹐
站在路角上。如果路角上有幢房子﹐他是在房子外面。The house is on the corner
of the street. 房子座落在路角上。
還有﹕in the street﹐ on the road﹐ on the way to somewhere﹐這都表示在路
上﹐街上。因為street指兩邊有建築物的街道﹐所以用in. 至於in a way 這裡的way跟
路沒關係了﹐指方式方法。 He lives on this street.這表示他大致住在這條路上。
He lives at 15 Main Street. 表示確切地點。至於介詞of用法更多。如﹕the Japanese
invasion of China﹐是of的賓格用法﹐表示動詞invasion後面的China是邏輯賓語﹐
動作的承受者。而the invasion of Japan into China﹐則是of的主格用法﹐表示
如The beauty of spring charms everyone.另有一個用法﹐He is a devil of a
以代替其他介詞﹐如He comes out of the house.按語義來講﹐從房子裡出來﹐應
該說out from the house﹐這裡的of是代替了from。這裡的of還可以省掉﹐即out
有些動詞後面用介詞與不用介詞﹐意思不一樣。如 He shoots the bird. 他射中或
射死了那鳥。如果說He shoots at the bird.意思是他對著那鳥射擊。至於有沒射
麼為目標”。再如The police search the person.警察搜這人的身。搜的動作到達
那人身上﹐因為person直接作了動詞search的賓語。而The police search for the

这话正好做主帖的注脚。I was told that there are “much” more car accidents on land than air crashes in the sky. This is true, but people often survive in car accidents, and seldom survive “in air crash”.“越细微，越有深度。”much more cad accidents不对，应该说many more car accidents；in air crash不对，应该说in an air crash。还是复习一下基础英语再写吧。
