I always have difficulty in buying birthday presents. My idea never seems to go farther than ties, pens or cards. But, strangely enough, it did not take me long to decide on Tom's birthday present. For the first time in life, I had a good idea. I would buy him a bottle of champagne (香檳酒). Before the party began,Tom suggested that I should open the bottle. I put it between my knees and began to pull, but it remained unmoved. Soon a lot of people gathered round to watch the fight between me and the bottle. I could hear all kinds of "helpful" suggestions from them like "Break the top off" ," Use your teeth", etc. But I was losing the fight. We were fighting on the floor together, when all of a sudden there was a loud:" pop" and the cork (塞子)shot up into the air, while the angry bottle showered (淋) everybody with champagne.

The man had had a drink, smoked several of Tom's cigarettes--and had read his story. The visitor left Tom a note:

Around the world more and more people are taking part in dangerous sports and activities. Of course, there have always been people who have looked for adventure--those who have climbed the highest mountains,explored (探險)unknown parts of the world or sailed in small boats across the greatest oceans. Now, however, there are people who seek(尋找) an immediate thrill( 令人激動的事情) from a risky activity which may only last a few minutes or even seconds.
I would consider bungee (蹦極)jumping to be a good example of such an activity. You jump from a high place ( perhaps a bridge or a hot air balloon) 200 metres above the ground with an elas- tic( 彈性的)rope tied to your ankles. You fall at up to 150 kilometres an hour until the rope stops you from hitting the ground. It is estimated that 2 million people around the world have now tried bungee jumping. Other activities which most people would say are as risky as bungee jumping involve (包括) jumping from tall buildings and diving into the sea from the top of high cliffs.
Why do people take part in such activities as these? Some psychologists (心理學家)suggest that it is because life in modern societies has become safe and boring. Not very long ago, people's lives were constantly under threat. They had to go out and hunt for food, diseases could not easily be cured, and life was a continuous battle for survival.
Nowadays, according to many people, life offers little excitement. They live and work in comparatively safe environments;they buy food in shops;and there are doctors and hospitals to look after them if they become ill. The answer for some of these people is to seek danger in activities such as bungee jumping.
