毕业典礼

Commencement这个词很多人应该都知道 — 毕业典礼。

但刚刚在查看Java里scheduleWithFixedDelay这个API的文档的时候,读到这么一句:

Creates and executes a periodic action that becomes enabled first after the given initial delay, and subsequently with the given delay between the termination of one execution and the commencement of the next.
 
于是查了一下,发现Commencement (noun)/Commence (verb)确实是beginning/to begin, starting/to start的意思。

也许这确实代表西方对学校教育的看法吧,你毕业的那天,其实是真正生活的开始。

不过现实的情况却是,大多数刚刚毕业的大学生都只能用老江的一句经典来形容:too simple, sometimes naive.
