A bottle of water thrown away on the street, is it littering?
A bucket of water poured on the street, is it littering?

A cube of ice left on the street, is it littering?

Life is subject to social norms, even ideological restrictions, so we don’t dare to think about it.

倒一桶水在街上,是亂拋垃圾嗎?
放一塊冰在街上,是亂拋垃圾嗎?

生活受着社會規範,甚至形成思想限制,讓我們都不敢去想。
