Why British postmen like to wear shorts in winter

   In the UK, postmen wearing only shorts has become the default rule in the industry. Whether it's the summer when sweat is soaking in the crotch or the winter when the snow is knee-high, wearing shorts is their distinctive label as a postman. They practiced steel and iron bones during the daily trip of more than ten kilometers, and also used shorts to ensure that they would not be soaked in sweat and snow. Many British netizens received the express in shock. The shorts fluttering under the postman's crotch made them think they were still alive in the summer. They were more punctual than Santa Claus, but they were far less tightly bound than him.

  Most people think this is just a silly and brave game popular among postmen: "Their calves are usually hot, you can imagine them running on the road." "I saw them dressed in the snow more than once. Postmen in shorts, their lower body is always more conspicuous than the red vest."

  There is no doubt that being a postman in the UK is a job that requires willpower. However, within the postman, only shorts can be called a professional. Every newcomer who has just received the postman’s vest will be told to forget the trousers and overalls, but they will always put on the trousers and go out on the first day, and then think of it in the snow. The predecessor's advice and the pity of his colleagues before going out. In many cases, the postman cannot park the car directly in front of the customer's door. They need to walk hundreds of meters on the snow-covered road to put the courier under the customer's doormat. This means that the trousers will remain attached to the skin of the calf after being soaked in snow.

  "Imagine that when the cold wind blows through the damp or even stiff trouser legs, your skin will look like dead pork that has been in the cold storage for a year, pale and lose its elasticity." Martin, a postman who has been in the business for many years, said, "You can see. Until every postman’s calf is red, a lot of exercise will keep their muscles hot.”

  Martin has only worn shorts during his work for the past ten years, including winter. "So far, the record I have kept is octaves below zero. Our muscles have hardened and I have not caught a cold for two years." Martin said, "Of course, not everyone has such courage. Older postmen will do. Equipped with waterproof trousers, they will endure the noise from the friction of the water release material."

  When the British Post provided uniforms for postmen, it was not just shorts. In the Victorian era, postmen were required to wear uniform trousers at work. On the contrary, postmen wearing shorts would be despised for lack of money. But after the winter trek, almost all postmen showed strong calves.

  In fact, as early as 2013, the Wenquan Town Post Office issued a ban on shorts after a postman fell and scratched his leg, but this safety measure was jointly boycotted by all local postmen, who preferred to wear shorts all day. To maintain the freedom of the legs: "In the agreement between the Royal Mail and the trade union, no one mentions that shorts are prohibited." It can even become the easiest topic between us and our customers.”

  Royal Mail spokesperson Adrian Booth said: “Our priority is to maintain the health and safety of our employees, and don’t underestimate frostbite and dry skin.”

  About shorts The controversy continued throughout the winter, until the temperature returned to warmer and ceased implementation. During this period, no postman actually changed into trousers. So far, only wearing shorts is still an unspoken rule among British postmen.

  In order to keep the temperature of their legs in the cold wind, they will always run on the road of delivery, just like to save the lost love, you will also bend your knees. Like every British girl who shows her thighs in winter, this is just their way of keeping their charm.

Moroccan football team: "The most familiar stranger"

   When I was still in college ten years ago, I led a sightseeing group of more than 30 Moroccan students. Before meeting them, my general impression of the Moroccans was that they are from North Africa but closer to the Arab world. They have religious beliefs, are used to worship, and are inextricably linked with France.   When I saw the real person, I realized that the North Africans in front of me were actually a group of children playing with each other and having fun in time. They were about the same age as me at the time. I have all kinds of nicknames and nicknames. During the process of taking them to Badaling, the Summer Palace and Houhai, two classmates and I, together with more than 30 Moroccan students, realized "cultural integration" and "world unity" in the small group to some extent.   During the World Cup in Qatar, I was surprised to find that the little-known Morocco team, which was eliminated in the group stage of the last World Cup, after miraculou

Zeigarnik effect

  As a freelancer, you have to fight procrastination every day. "I've made up my mind many times, but I just can't change it. Is it because I'm slow or slow?". In fact, many procrastinations are irrational. Many obstructions are imagined by myself. So distract, postpone, avoid confrontation. It's cool to procrastinate, and it's cool to procrastinate all the time, so I can't do it. Concentration is also related to physical strength. When the physical strength is exhausted, it is even more difficult to concentrate. You’ll tell yourself: I’m too tired to do this—okay, another perfect procrastination.   In 1927, Bruma Zeigarnik's senior research found that people are more likely to care about unfinished and interrupted work than completed work. This is the Zeigarnik effect. For example, we often don't care much about what we have got, but we will especially cherish what we have worked hard but haven't got. Therefore, the TV series will tell you
