  All my life, I’ve been called nice… I’ve been called other things, but always nice and it never sat right with me.
  在我的生活中,我总是被人称为“好人”,虽然也叫我其他的,但几乎都是好人。但,这并不是我。
  sit right with 和某人(观点)一致
  eg.Something about Ms. William's claims doesn't  sit right with me.
  威廉姆斯女士宣称的有些事情和我的想法不太一样。
  “He was nice…。”
  “他是个好人…”
  See! Why does the word “nice” rub me the wrong way? Why don’t people want to date the nice guy? What’s so wrong with nice?
  看!为什么nice这个词会让我生气呢?为什么人们不想和好人约会呢?nice这个词有什么问题吗?
  rub the wrong way  激怒,惹怒
  eg.Anyone who’s telling you what to do is liable to rub you the wrong way.
  那些告诉你要怎么做的人是有惹怒你的倾向的。
  Well, I recently found out nice used to be a negative------derived from the Latin word “nescius”, meaning “ignorant”。 And in the 14th century, it was used to refer to a stupid, ignorant, or foolish person。
  最近,我发现nice曾经是一个负面的词,他来源于拉丁语中的“nescius”,意思是“无知的”。在14世纪,他指的是愚蠢的,无知的人。
  derived from 来源于
  eg。So if we have a concept of causation , it must be derived from experience 。
  因此,如果我们有一个因果关系的概念,它必须源于经验。
  OK, so you really didn’t want to be the nice guy back then。 However, by the 15th century, it started to refer to a person who was finely dressed, shy or reserved, or precise。 Kind of vague, but maybe nice was getting nicer?
  好吧,你真的不会想做那个时候的好人。但是,到了15世纪,nice开始指衣着考究,害羞,矜持或严谨的人。有些模糊,但是nice的含义或许正在改善?
  Is that the reason why people don’t want to date the nice guy? Because it started out describing stupid idiots and then it was used for plain people that nobody remembers。 And because of that, I don’t think I’m a nice guy anymore and I’m OK with that。 But… that doesn’t make me mean。
  或许这就是人们不想和好人约会的原因?因为他一开始形容的是愚蠢的傻瓜,后来被用来描述那些没有人记得的普通人。正因如此,我不再认为我是一个好人,这我倒是无所谓。但这并不意味着我会变得刻薄。
