A: Want to join us?
A: 要不要一起來啊?
B: No, thanks. I don't know jack squat about how to play this game.

jack up 提高; 增加
A: Why do software companies make their software so expensive these days?
A: 為什麼現在的軟體公司把他們的軟體弄得這麼貴呢?
B: Because they fully expect people to pirate their material within days of its release. They need to jack up the prices and make their money before it becomes "freeware".
B: 因為他們完全預期到他們的東西出來後的幾天內就會有人去偷它。他們得把價錢飆高, 好在軟體成為「免費軟體」前賺點錢。
A: But, perhaps that is why people are so tempted to pirate software.
A: 但是, 也許那(高價)就是為什麼人們想去偷軟體的原因。

◆"pirate" 是「剽竊」的意思。pirate software 就是所謂的 illegal software, 盜版的電腦軟體。
