  1. Tony: I can help you with the translation... But,...you first should tell me what's the meaning of pin-head!
  2. Muchas gracias Carmen! Después voy a chequear bien este foro, muy interesante! El pasado raspberriano de Miguel Bosé? Qué fue eso? Después lo voy a ver bien. Saludos desde Buenos Aires. Andrea
  3. No, this is too much… Again, CAN'T..STOP...LAUGHING!!! Of course this is better than Benny Hill, Mr.Bean, Monty Python…
  4. Hi Wendy! I admire you. You don’t know how much your “International Translation†is helping me with my very poor English ( or my Spanglish…) Now I can see much more clearly some American expressions like: Pompous F*%#ing Wankers, bollocks – bullsh*t, etc ( I actually studied British, my diction is pretty British, I think…). So, MUCHAS GRACIAS Wendy! I’m your FAN, indeed!
  5. Oh God, you're so Funny, CAN'T..STOP...LAUGHING!!! I must say now…American Humor is BETTER than British Humor, of course!
  6. Hi hollies: Ok, we;'e changing the subject here... I see you've been in paradise there in Greece! Naxos Island is actually the place where I'd like to live... Have a nice day!
  7. I visited the Sweet board, I had never heard about them, But I do remember Milli Vanilli... This threads are the funniest things I've read. I must admit American and English Humor is one of my favorites! Hey Panasonicq: are you from England? Do you like Football ? If so, Do you remember Diego Maradona and the Hand of God goal? Cheers from Argentina! A.(argentinian Carmen/Raspberries fan)
  8. I love when a man uses this "contradictio in terminis", the Oxymoron! Mr. Carmen, you're a Poet, you're a Genius, you're the Man...
  9. You're a Genius James the Thiker! PS: Marisa Tomei LOOKS FANTASTIC - as a "stripper" in The Wrestler! PS1: I'm still trying to translate to Spanish the terms/expressions: -Pin-head -EricCardboard -Milli Vanilli (Puppets?) -Panasonicq (?) -Peanut
  10. Iraq's Shocking Human Toll: About 1 Million Killed, 4.5 Million Displaced, 1-2 Million Widows, 5 Million Orphans... The United Nations estimates that there are about 4.5 million displaced Iraqis -- more than half of them refugees -- or about one in every six citizens. Only 5 percent have chosen to return to their homes over the past year, a period of reduced violence from the high levels of 2005-07. The availability of healthcare, clean water, functioning schools, jobs and so forth remains elusive. According to Unicef, many provinces report that less than 40 percent of households have access to clean water. More than 40 percent of children in Basra, and more than 70 percent in Baghdad, cannot attend school... Oh, it doesn't matter at all! things are going to be much better in Iraq, they can vote now!
  11. I’m reading about Senator Paul Wellstone case, And (as always) I’d say… you goes straight to the point! Right now, I’m reading these lines: “It should be remembered that Wellstone also was the chairman of the new securities reform committee. And it was Wellstone who was attempting to block the nomination of the notorious William Webster, former CIA and FBI head and the Best Friend of Big Business and the Big Accounting Firms, to be the new chairman of the SEC/ Accounting "Oversight" Commission. If the Republicans wanted to take anybody out, this was THE guy.â€
  12. Hi hollies! I saw this movie a few weeks ago. I've always loved Mickey Rourke (a man who was prettier than Kim Bassinger in Nine 1/2 weeks, that was too much!) I've always found him terribly sweet! he's also sweet in this movie, I loved his performance and I also loved Marisa Tomei, she was great and really beautiful. The last scene was a bit awful, I think. Ok, I just don't agree with Mickey's political views..., but he's so Cute and tender. And he's gonna win the Oscar, Isn't he?
  13. Eric, young ladies love you too!

    You’re brave boys!! I love you all! I whish I had such lucid thinkers and great orators in these lands… My sincere admiration, A.
  15. As Eric says I was not promoting Argentina as a bastion of prison reform and civility. Of course I know and look at my own prisons. In fact, I'm against the current prison System, which seems to increase violence and crime, where mostly of the time, innocents are being punished for crimes they have not committed. But, since this thread was about Gitmo, I was just expressing my thoughts about Guantanamo Center and the positive step in closing it. That was just my point as a "folk living elsewhere". If the thread had been about Argentina instead of Gitmo, I would have mentioned the concentration camps in Argentina, all over the country ( in the 70's ), its tortures and the worst aberrations commited ever in history; any of them even more perverse than in Auszwitz!. I was not discussing about conditions in Prison. I was referring to a “Camp†which has pretty different features.
  16. Eric, where you like "Lost in Translation" in 1979?
  17. Oh, well, I’d say…they’re almost the same described above: “Six religious conforming meals a day...Air conditioning...2 hrs exercise...prayer rugs†…and one TV Entertainment News or a Disney movie, once a week…
  18. SOOO SWEET!!! "Up on the Roof" and now... You TOOK my breath away! I want it back again I don't know what to say I don't know how to feel You knocked my headlights out So turn them on again I can't see where I'm going I can't tell where I've been I don't know how to feel This hasn't been my day Seems like I've lost a wheel You took my breath away You took my breath away... Thank you Bernie!! Andrea
  19. Hollies: I may apologize for using the terms “concentration campâ€, which may sound terrible and disturbing.I understand your point, and I didn’t mean to disturb you. It’s just the term I use when I refer to any detention Center ( any part of the world ) where the prisoners are being held in legal limbo—charged with no crime yet regularly interrogated, unable to talk with lawyers. Being there, "indefinitely...without access to family, friends, or legal counsel, and with no opportunity to establish their innocence." These camps are outside the rules of Criminal Law and Prison Law. That’s why I don’t call them “Prisonâ€. Some historians(in some History books)refer to the term “Concentration Camp†like this: "Whoever was in the Camp moved into an area of indistinctness between interior and exterior, except and rule, licit and illicit, in which any legal protection is minimized. Actually defines a space in which the normal order is in fact suspended, and in which foreigners may be held in the waiting area before the intervention of juridical authority." Yes, I should read more History books, you’re right. Why not. This is always a good advice. I do appreciate it!. Andrea
  20. How convenient! The day after Obama signs a few pieces of paper changing things, you get this news? All I know is…if Bush Administration had not disgracefully violated the Geneva Convention and allowed the abuse of prisoners to be carried on, elected president Obama wouldn’t now have to face such a drastic decision like this. Guantanamo Bay, one of the few concentration camps publicly recognized by a democratic government, being completely “outside†of the Judicial System, having enabled the use of torture and human rights violations against detainees. And it is known that “Torture doesn't stop terror. Torture is terror.†So, it seems to be (a drastic), but also an Intelligent Obama’s first step ordering to end torture and close Gitmo.
  21. I'm happy for you Barbara! I’ve always loved “Ready to Take a Chance Againâ€â€¦
