The drunkest city in the U.S.

A CDC study shows that an estimated 18% of American adults drink excessively.

Excessive alcohol consumption includes binge drinking.

binge drinking的意思是“狂饮”,英文也叫heavy episodic drinking,这种喝酒方式和行为的唯一目的就是在短时间内喝醉(become intoxicated over a short period of time)。It is a style of drinking that is popular in several countries worldwide. 英语百科全书没点名哪些国家流行这种喝酒方式,但我猜俄国和中国肯定是。

binge这个词的意思是”放纵、狂饮作乐、大吃大喝“。

binge drinking仅译作”狂饮“我觉得没能把这个英语说法的画面表达出来,我觉得可以根据binge的发音译为”并急“,意义是”急吼吼地火并式喝酒的方式“。

这篇文章选出了美国各大州的the drunkest cities,其中,阿拉斯加州的费尔班克斯(Fairbanks)是该州的冠军。

Of the two metropolitan areas in Alaska -- Fairbanks and Anchorage -- Fairbanks has the largest share of adults WHO report excessive drinking. Some 22.7% of Fairbanks adults binge or drink heavily, the largest share in Alaska and one of the largest shares of any U.S. metro area.

想起去年三月去Fairbanks旅行时,到处冰天雪地,当时就和胖鹿说,这地方这天气这气氛,每天真不知道除了喝酒还能干什么。Fairbanks很小,但超市不少,很多超市里还有丰富的亚洲食物,当然更多的是触目惊心的大个儿甜甜圈,一大兜一大兜地摆在货架上,看着心惊。
