Can you catch a notebook with your butt?


----------------

Are you amused or disturbed by this video? Color me a little of both. Very little. But I have to hand it to the guy (or just throw it at his butt) — it’s definitely something I can’t do. Nor am I planning to invest the time into acquiring this skill. How about you?

Thanks to Jeff for the link.

  1. Not sure this is something you should really be advertising…? It's just a tad odd. 10 seconds was enough for me, after awhile it's just silly and you wonder what these kids do other than kegels. On second thought, I don't even want to know.

    • Bad translation: It was known that people who have MSI return of the trick in bottom

      Do I go to French websites where everyone posts & comments in French and comment in English? No.

      Also if memory serves, most French people nowadays know how to speak English. They just choose not to. So Nic, do you know how to say what you wanted to say in English and decided to be annoying, or did you actually find your way to an English site and thought you'd drop a comment?

      • For the record, this is an international site. French is even Kiltak's first language. The site is published in English only because English has become the lingua franca (irony alert) of the web. We English-speaking people could stand to expand our vocabularies to other languages rather than insisting that everyone speak our way.

        • What makes it an international site? That it can be accessed from multiple countries?

          I've learned a touch of Japanese, Spanish, German, and Korean. What I've found is (probably due to the emphasis in their education systems) people from each of those countries have an easier go speaking to me in English than I do of speaking to them in their tongue. I agree we could do a better job in the US of language education at a younger age. I think due to recent immigration trends, some areas have made Spanish a requirement. Of course you could spend 10 years learning the ins and outs of Spanish and still be lost in the shuffle in the majority of Europe, all of Asia, and half the states.

          As you say, English is one of the most accepted languages everywhere. My comments are not inaccurate, they just sounded meaner than I meant them to be. For that I apologize. But as the de facto language for this site and the vast majority of its visitors/commentors, it would have helped Nic's comment if he'd typed it in English.

        • Apology accepted — and I acknowledge that more readers would appreciate Nicholas' comment if it had been written in English — but translation is not always so easy, as you suggested. "On savait" doesn't really have an accurate equivalent in English — about the closest we could come is "Everyone knows", but that's not really the sense of it either. We'd like to think that "anything you can say, you can say in English" but really, English isn't all that expressive as a language.

          Should we restrict comments to things that the majority of readers will "get"? That's lowest-common-denominator thinking.

  3. I think this ties in with that joke about the guy that paid with divorce settlement. I think it was handed to his wife with his butt.

    They should start handing out diplomas like that. First the guy catches it with his butt, and drops it into your hand before wish good luck in the world.
