To: (email address)
From: Wesley Lee
Subject: Thank you for your inquiry!
Regarding your inquiry about the borrowing the work of Chou Wei-xing, we are happy to lend you the work of the artist. To our knowledge,this would be the first exhibition concerning Chou’s work prior to 1970.
However, we are not able to lend you the “autumn xxx” work because we have another exhibition in our museum, which overlaps your exhibition period.
We have another Chou’s painting, “water buffalo”, which is a 1960 work of Chou’s.
We are sure it’s also an icon of Chou’s early style.
Let me know if it’s ok for you.

ET Jason就記得的細節 跟找到的相關資料 跟大家分享
QS, as seen in the movies, can be very scary. In the movies, QS pulls whatever is unlucky enough to fall into it down into a bottomless pit. Then the unlucky victim disappears and is assumed to have drowned. In reality, the movies do not portray QS exactly as it really reacts. QS is made up of sand clay, and water. If a person suddenly finds himself or herself in QS, the first thing they should remember is to not panic. If the person who has just fallen into the quick sand will just relax, e they will probably float to the top. Being able to float in QS is due to the differences in the densities of QS, water and the human body. QS has a density of about 125 pounds per cubic foot and the human body has a density of 62.4 pounds per cubic foot. The differences between these densities enable the human body to float while in QS. If floating is not working due to the buoyancy of the QS, do not panic; just make slow, easy movements to free yourself. If you find yourself only in QS up to your waist, you will experience a vacuum when trying to remove your leg from the QS. Remember, quick movements will make the situation worse. A person who finds himself or herself in this predicament should remember not to panic and allow him or herself to float by getting on their back. In this position, they can paddle to safety using slow motions. The most important thing to remember is to remain calm and not begin flailing around, causing the sand particles to engulf them.
