Thanks for your reaction to my writing first!
I think we are allowed to have different view on the same issue that may be right or wrong! Sometime just for your laughing!   For an example:
One english word ‘pest’ sounds  like Chinese saying ‘拍死它(pai-si-ta)’(Pat it to death!)----------Yes, Harmful worms are worth your such dealing!
Let's make or take life as simple as possible! That would save you a lot of unnecessary troubles. ---------------It is precious experience that I have learned from Mom.

师 minus one stroke is 帅 which means 'commander‘ or 'handsome’!

In the modern era, we call military troop as '部队’---------How to understand 部?
立(standing), 口(mouth or man)and the third part of 部 is ear.  So 部 is a group of people standing over there whose ears are ready for listening to your order!

It is interesting for that in Chinese there is another word so similar to it! ---------陪(accompany) emphasizes ear while 部 mainly refers to man!
Let's make or take life as simple as possible! That would save you a lot of unnecessary troubles. ---------------It is precious experience that I have learned from Mom.
