Buenas Buenas Queridas y Queridos Viandantes.
Hoy en un nuevo lanzamiento de la Cátedra de Estudios Sociales, y como parte del programa de intercambio cultural y de profesores que realizamos en un convenio con la Universidad de Arizona State en Phoenix, llegó Kyle Black, docente de dicha casa a
colaborar con nosotros.
Aquí podrán ver La Segunda Ley de Equivalencias, pero en Inglés.
Para los que necesiten el repaso y/o la traducción, aquí está el texto en castellano sobre el que se basó el video.
Y la versión en inglés pasada en limpio para los que quieran imprimirla para llevársela a su teacher.
Second Equivalence Law: Who they tell you you are gonna meet and who you´ll actually meet.
Different than in most American movies, blind dates are really meetings that either one does or one is forced to do.
What usually happens is one of the following ways:
A friend comes up to you and says: “Hey, tonight I´m gonna go out with this girl and she´s gonna bring a friend. You wanna come?”.
At this point there are two possibilities. The first one and the best one is that your friend and this chick are together in which case you are not obligated to go.
But if by casualty your friend is trying to hook up with this girl and needs a wingman, there´s no possible way to refuse.
In this way your friend will tell you the truth when you ask him “How is she?”, and you´ll receive an honest answer.
Major problem occurs when a girl friend of yours invites you to meet one of her friends. This is when the whole game of equivalences opens.
The first question that one wants to ask is “How is she?” and according to the answer of your friend I´ll translate you my dear “viandantes”, according to what they´re saying and what they really mean by what they say.
1- “She´s very nice”
What really means she´s really fat and nice and the last time someone took her out to dance was probably on her fifteen birthday and it was her dad who took her out.
2- “She´s vey interesting”
Crazy. Absolutely crazy. She´s a nerd that spents all of her time studying at the library and in her bedroom she has G.I. Joe dolls to whom she speaks to every night before she goes to sleep. Talking to her for more than eight minutes can leave serious consequences for the rest of your life. Creepy.
3- “She has an exotic beauty”
This means she´s pretty much the mix between an amazon parrot and a crazy peacock.
4- “She has a strange beauty”
This is a mix between a white rhinocerous and a koala that has an ass face.
5- “She´s a firecracker”
Crazy. Another crazy. Different kind of crazy here. Talking to her for seven minutes and you wanna strangle her and after the ninth minute you want to leave the planet.
6- “She´s so sweet, she´s divine”
Sweet means she´s dumb. All of her friends take advantage of her, they use her, and then they trash talk about her behind her back.
7- “She´s such a good girl”
She´s kinda like an insect. A cockroach looking girl. She´s stuck to her friends and worst of all, she stucks to anyone who gives her a smile.
8- “I love her, I adore her”
Another kind of cockroach. But it´s better that you tell me that she´s pretty because if not I´ll kill you.
9- “She calls your attention”
She´s ridiculous. She likes to walk down the street dressed as a crashed taxicab.
10- “She has a huge personality”
She´s a crazy feminist. She´ll yell at you for anything that you attempt to say; and you go to the contrary, she´ll yell at you anyways.
After six minutes of talking to her you want to drown yourself in your soup and after ten minutes you pray that a piano falls from the ceiling on her head.
Aside from these options, there are a few more:
“She´s a good cook”, “She knows how to keep secrets” and “You can trust her”.
Dear viandants, this was the second equivalence law.
Como dato color, quería agradecer a la gente de Fernet 1882 quienes amablemente nos invitaron a su Loft en Urca a degustar y realizar una cata del mismo (Nobleza Obliga, es muy rico. Puede sentarse a mi mesa).
De paso, en el Loft hay mesa de pool, de poker, play station, una Wi (o Wii o Wiiiii, o algo así) y otras cosas para divertirse. Como lo analógico es lo mío, me retiré con un notable invicto de la mesa de billar, pero sólo pude lograr un mísero triunfo y de casualidad en los jueguitos, porque alguien entretenía a mi rival de turno.
Una foto para ilustrar.
Como notarán… la producción anda a full.
Antes de cerrar el año viene una nueva clase, y durante el verano, en mis vacaciones, seguiré fiel a mi estilo (Y fiel a todo como siempre) y actualizaré como corresponde.
Y un solo detalle… un par de fotos de la decoración navideña de mi nueva casa que comparto con Juli y Gabi…
Armamos el arbolito
Y también el pesebre
Saludos, Cariños, Besos y Abrazos
Greetings, Love, Kisses and Hugs
