  段子:

  每个女人都梦想着收到一颗闪闪发光的、价值连城的大钻石。现在科学家们发现了宇宙中最大的钻石。但是这颗钻石是绝大多数热恋中的男人怎么也够不着的——精确的说距离有50光年。宇宙科学家们透露他们发现了一块重达10的46次方克拉的宝石。这块石头直径达2500英里,重5× 10的42次方磅,藏在人马座中一颗白矮星的中心,是在情人节那天被发现的。

  [译文]Every woman dreams of receiving a huge, sparkling and priceless diamond. Now scientists have discovered the largest diamond in the universe. But it's well beyond the reach of the most lovestruck men - 50 light years to be precise. Space scientists revealed that they had discovered a ten billion trillion trillion carat gem. Measuring 2,500 miles across and weighing five million trillion trillion pounds, the rock was found on Valentine's Day buried in the core of a white dwarf star in the constellation Centaurus.
