    The funny thing… I got the book a week ago, but I have not gone through it, yet. I spent about 20 sec. and glanced at a couple pics. I got my school books at the same time and have spent all my book time with those. :idea: Actually, I think I will go get my book now.

  3. heaven here i come says:

    I like the pictures;you look fantastic, Marina, and they are superb outfits and positions!

    I ordered your book from Amazon UK a while ago but they sent me an e-mail a few days back to say there was a delay and they cannot now tell me when it will arrive (it was originally supposed to be next week). If you can fix whatever the problem is I’d be very grateful.

    Hugs and more hugs,

    Heaven here I come…

    [What is the connection between: the country Turkey, the bird turkey, the country India? I heard that in the Turkish language, the word India means the bird turkey, and the word turkey means the country India! There is a long discussion by linguists here: That discussion even brings in Russian: In Russian the turkey is called _indjuk_ (male), _indjushka/indejka_ (female). As food, the turkey is referred to by the term _indjushka_. In sum, it's the "bird of India," as in French. Russian has "ind'ejka" (sg.fem.n.) for "turkey," which is related to the word for "Indian." It's interesting to note, however, that seems to derive from "ind'ejec"/"ind'ejskij" which mean "Indian (sg.masc.n.)"/"Indian (sg.masc.adj.)" as in Native American, as opposed to "ind'ijec"/"ind'ijskij" "Indian (sg.masc.n)"/"Indian (sg.masc.adj)" as pertaining to the people of India. (Note: in the above transcriptions, c = ts, and ' indicates palatalization or softness. All five Russian words have stress on the second syllable.) ]

    1. A man comes into the ER and yells, ‘My wife’s going to have her baby in the cab!
    I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady’s dress, and began to take off her underwear.
    Suddenly, I noticed that there were several cabs — and I was in the wrong one.
    Submitted by Dr. Mark MacDonald, San Antonio , TX

    2. At the beginning of my shift, I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient’s anterior chest wall. “Big breaths,” I instructed..
    “Yes, they used to be”, replied the patient.
    Submitted by Dr. Richard Byrnes, Seattle , WA .

    3. One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct.
    Not more than five minutes later, I heard her reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a, ‘massive internal fart.’
    Submitted by Dr. Susan Steinberg

    4. During a patient’s two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications. “Which one,” I asked?
    “The patch. The nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours, and now I’m running out of places to put it!”
    I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn’t see.
    Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body!
    Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.
    Submitted by Dr. Rebecca St. Clair, Norfolk , VA.

    5. While acquainting myself with a new elderly patient, I asked “How long have you been bedridden?”
    After a look of complete confusion, she answered….”Why, not for about twenty years — when my husband was alive.”
    Submitted by Dr. Steven Swanson, Corvallis , OR

    6. I was caring for a woman and asked, “So, how’s your breakfast this morning?”
    “It’s very good, except for the Kentucky Jelly. I can’t seem to get used to the taste,” the patient replied.
    I then asked to see the jelly, and the woman produced a foil packet labeled ‘KY Jelly.’
    Submitted by Dr. Leonard Kransdorf, Detroit , MI

    7. A nurse was on duty in the emergency room when a young woman entered, sporting purple hair styled into a punk rocker mohawk, a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing.
    It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for immediate surgery.
    When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read, ‘Keep off the grass.’
    Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient’s dressing, which said, ‘Sorry, had to mow the lawn.’
    Submitted by RN, no name.


    8. As a new, young MD doing his residency in OB , I was quite embarrassed when performing female pelvic exams. To cover my embarrassment, I had unconsciously formed a habit of whistling softly.
    The middle-aged lady upon whom I was performing this exam suddenly burst out laughing and further embarrassing me.
    I looked up from my work and sheepishly said, “I’m sorry.. Was I tickling you?”
    She replied, “No doctor, but the song you were whistling was, ‘I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener’.”
    Doctor wouldn’t submit his name (Can’t blame him!)

    i saw olgakay asking what means the phrase [that hit the spot] when people are eating . For more details check out with the video “Baby, HIT THE SPOT!!!”

  16. nirvanaboy321 says:

    How about the word [pussy]. Both the cat and the other one. It just seems like such a random word.

  17. pokesimful says:

    Can I request the word [Mermaid] :?: :razz:

    • Captain Jack says:

      Ok I’ll second your request for the word [Mermaid], though I already know the answer. Maybe I can get that mermaid outfit from my friend and mail it to Marina to wear for a video lesson? It’s really cool looking. The dress splits in the back so she can walk. There is little neodymium magnets that help it close back up when she’s not walking. She went topless but she added hair extensions that covered everything up well and for a back up she had pasties.

  18. nighteye says:

    Looks great, Marina. Especially that last look, librarianesque. Maybe you could do some videos in that outfit? :mrgreen:

  19. jcr says:

    P.S. I’m definitely buying the book!

  20. jcr says:

    Wow. Personally, I prefer you to Denise Richards – as does my son :grin: (Just a guess, but I think you are nicer)

  21. Captain Jack says:

    Trivial quiz: What does Denise Richards and I have in common?

    Clue: It’s two names.

    • Capman911 says:

      Ok I’ll guess. your name is Jack Dennis Richards?

    • neuroway says:

      I am clueless cap’n. Proceed. Tell us about you and Denise Richards. But first, who is Denise Richards?

      Why, oh why am I answering this post? I am really clueless about this, and this goes well beyond my understanding of logic. I think it’s because I need a cap’n Crunch whistle. Do you know where I can buy one by any chance?

      • Captain Jack says:

        Hey Noob,

        Well I guess you never heard of Wiki or Google then? I thought my clues where enough. :mrgreen:

        Yeah, you’re you young to know who she is. Maybe it’s best you don’t. You might dampen your pants. Whatever you do, don’t watch the movie “Wild Things”. :shock:

        I don’t know why you are answering this post. You are reminding me of that movie ‘Clueless’. :roll:

        No, I will not tell you (a Noob) where to buy a CC whistle. You have no clue what 2600 is anyways. Btw, it won’t do you any good now days. They turned off that function. :cry:


        • neuroway says:

          Cap’n, you watch too much movies. Give a shot at Kant’s Critic of Practical Reason next time you’re looking for some entertainment. It’ll spin your cap’n cap around like a flamenco dancer. And remember: you have absolutely no clues about the clues others have.

          Let me guess… 2,600 is a little more than 2,599, but a little less than 2,601?

          • Captain Jack says:

            I use to watch a lot of movies but in recent years most of them are crap. Writers have gotten LAZY! :x Many of them are doing what they did in high school and college. Take someone else’s work and rewrite it. The have not one creative bone in their body. This has upset my sister so much it’s driven her to write her own screen play. :grin: It’s pretty good for what I have read. I would pay to watch it and I would even buy the bluray disc of it.

            Did you see Marina’s last lesson? She briefly covered the 2600 club (phone phreaks and hackzors). It’s a mini magazine you can buy at book stores. 2600 club got it’s name from the Captain Crunch whistle you speak of. This whistle when blown produces a near perfect 2600 Khz sound that you can blow into a POTS (plain old telephone system) payphone and get a dial tone. Those whistles are quite valuable today because of the magazine. :cool:

            If you want to get a good grade in this class you better start doing your home work young man. :mrgreen:

          • neuroway says:

            @Cap’n J,

            Cap’n J, in the past, I used 2600 to mark the sheep that comes after the 2599th one, and before the 2601st one, when my brain is idle before sleep and it starts counting for no reason.

            Gracias to you, El Cap’n, I now know better. 2600 is a club magazine and not a sheep, and it produces some bad evil vibes when you blow it on top of that.

            Forsooth, Cap’n, I have decided to skip the 2600th sheep in my sheep counting. I’ll go straight from 2599 to 2601 from now on. How does that sound? That shouldn’t be a big deal anyways. 1/2600 is not a big difference in the flock anyways. The bad dangerous one, the 2600th, will be intellectually flushed. Pfffffuiiiiiiitttttt!!!! Gone!!! And don’t read the pfuit like a whistle blow.

  22. cufan71 says:

    :grin: AWESOME :!: I love the book too :!: :cool:

  23. Captain Jack says:

    Wow! You really are a model. You are a lady of many talents. I loved the video! Who shot the video? Good Job! That’s a great example on how to shoot an entertaining video. I liked the white wig you wore. You looked like you where from that time period. When I flipped through your book and seen that photo, I didn’t believe it was you at first.
    Keep up the great work Marina. Your awesome!

    • I like that civil war error look in Marina to Captain. I only wish I lived in the Colonial period and Marina was my girl. I would have been a fucken king. I think when I do the photo shoot for Playboy with Marina this is the look I am going for. Whether it was the colonial period or she was trying to be a saloon girl in the late 1800′s I don’t care I love her ass. :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

      Lady of many talents, check out Stephanie :smile:

      ps the violin is her as well

  24. Evan Owen says:

    Wonder how much the photographer paid to work with Marina? :razz:

    • Captain Jack says:

      LOL, yeah he should have. Speaking of which I wonder how much a shoot like that would cost? Sears cost an arm and a leg just for 4 shots. $525 bucks I was quoted. So I opted for just the $20 dollar passport photo. I lost the photos the very next day. Apparently that’s cheap for I heard senior photo shoots from professionals costing around $2,000. Some studios are charging at least $10,000 per day for model type shoots like what Marina did. I know one guy gets $40K a day from shooting semi famous people for magazine shots. :shock: So I would venture to guess from looking at Derek Caballero website of his examples he would have to be charging no less $10K a day. Which seems fair for how often does someone stop in to drop $10k for a shoot? The guy has to pay his lease, equipment upgrades, maintenance and most of all save some to eat. But then it’s Hollywood! :roll:

    • HotForWords says:

      Cost me loads! But SOOO worth it! Photographer like him sees way hotter girls than me all day long!

  25. ThisGuyDoug says:

    I would like to request the word [unicorn] and find out why it’s not [unihorn].

    • Evan Owen says:

      “Hard-c” sounds in Latin and the earlier Proto-Indoeuropean changed to “h” or “wh” as they passed into the Germanic languages (including English.)

      The Latin root “corn-” became “horn” in English. Words referring to circles like “collar” and “corral” have an Anglo-Saxon parallel in “wheel.” And words related to love, with the root word “car-,” (caritas, querer (Spanish), charity, care, etc.) correspond to the English (blush) “whore.”

      “Unicorn” is the Latin version of “one-horn.” :lol:

  26. Rijk says:

    Listening to the video (while driving, what other excuse is there not to watch it?), I must say that’s a pretty nice tune, what’s it called?

  27. firep0w3r says:

    I enjoyed your website much, much, more before your quest for dollars became
    obsessive. “Buy my book” — “Join Go Daddy” — “Make me more famous” —
    “look at me mmmmmm…money”, oops, I mean mmmm I love you people, help me be number one! Send dollars to:

    Use to be nice just watching the unique way you presented answers to linguistics, but now, with every word, I expect a plea for money & fame all for the phantom teacher.

    • Rijk says:

      Here is my thoughts on the matter:

      HotForWords is not a person, it’s a company.
      First thing it had to do was brand building.
      I think it was started as an idea for a company, but I could be wrong, so let’s for argument sake say after the first million views it transformed into the company. And it became Marina’s job.
      As al company’s it needs to generate cash to pay its employer(s). Only in the beginning it was only the ads in the video, so not that obvious. As the brand name grew, it started to attract company’s / advertisers. And that’s what we see now in the video’s / the site.
      The site can be seen as a store. Once your inside the ad-revenue starts running. So the more students there are the bigger the volume the bigger the revenue. Now she has shifted attention to twitter. Twitter is used to guide more people to the website. She might lose a couple of students by not being on the site, but this is more than compensated by the twitter-thing.
      Seeing promoting her book as an ad is debatable. You could also say she is very enthusiastic and proud of making that book and want the world to know it.

      For me the video’s are still worth seeing despite of the ads. Without the ads she couldn’t make them. So just look past the ads in the video’s. If she overdoes the ads thing she will lose viewers / subscriber and that’s bad for business so she won’t let it come to that. ;-)

      • Rijk says:

        Ps would those two apples you always see in the left corner have something to do with the mac she uses? :mrgreen:

        ( I know I am on radar-lock, just can’t help it ) ;)

    Hey Marina! Its David!! Soo its been a while since I asked for a word request, but I was one of your teacher’s pets way back in the day. Anyways I was thinking why does the word Lush mean a drunkard.. I have heard the word in a few taking back sunday songs.. They say “your a lush, and I hate it” Soo I was thinking you could explain this word if ya want. Oh and give me a shout out. that would be awesome!! :mrgreen: anyways see ya later.

  33. preter-dexterity says:

    Dearest Professor Orlova,
    I have the book, and the photos reveal alot of additional facets of your personality and self-depreciating good humor.
    You’re helping alot of Americans rediscover their “mother tongue”, which is a good thing as Dr. Henry Higgins once observed that, regarding our language, though the English needed to “…learn to speak..”, by the same reference decried the fact that “…Americans hadn’t spoken it in years…”
    Maybe now we’ll have the needed impetous to get it right.
    Warmest Regards,

  34. kjohn50083 says:

    you are the sexiest woman in the history of the planet. Thank you for coming to America and thank Bill O’Reily for letting us know you are here.

  38. seesixcm6 says:

    Dear Marina,
    I already bought your book; three copies, in fact. I’ve read the first one, and I’m confident the other two books are similar in quality. I hope you got enough photographs on file for another book or even two. This way, you can assure your publisher that the next books wil also be as successful and profitable for them! (And for you, too!) :razz:

  42. MCLIJazz says:

    As of now, I’m up to page 52.

  43. pedanticKarl says:

    Marina, thank you for sharing that video of the photo shoot.
    Great footage of you and Derek at work.
    The photos in the book are amazing and he captured
    you exquisitely. I noticed that he does photo shoots
    of Ed Hardy collections. An artist capturing the work
    of another artist.

    Now, what we need is for Derek, the photographer artist,
    to capture the art of Don Ed Hardy worn by a terrific
    word video artist Marina Orlova. What an album that
    would make.
