「Hindsight」を含む文の意味

Q: hindsight is anything but 20/20 とはどういう意味ですか?
A: There is a common phrase that says "hindsight is 20/20". 20/20 is the perfect vision that human eyes can have. Hindsight means looking back at the past. The phrase means that when you look back at the past, there are always things you wish you could've done better since you now know more than you did back then.

"Hindsight is anything but 20/20" means that this person disagrees with the above phrase.
Q: hindsight is always 20/20 とはどういう意味ですか?
A: Hindsight is 20/20 is a proverb that refers to having a good understanding of what they should have done for a past event only AFTER it has happened. It's usually used when a person makes a decision they later regret because of the consequences.

Hindsight = Looking back
20/20 = perfect vision

It does not mean predicting the future.

e.g.
A: "I shouldn't have cheated on the math test! My teacher called my parents and I'm stuck with detention for 2 weeks."
B: "Hindsight's always 20/20. Don't do it again next time."

其實基本意思大概就是說,人只有在事情發生後才明白應該怎麼處理/解決一件事。因為事情發生前人沒有能力看透一切嘛,事情發生後才知道哪裡做對,哪裡做錯。希望這個解釋對你有幫助!
