    He could see the Box Office this weekend as the only leader Megamind Another hero triumph under the hood of 3D CGI animation. Ultimately, the last three years, two thirds of the animated comedy adventure gross at least $ 200 million dollars, and a production budget of a quarter of that amount.

    I was rooting for the steelers, and they won, does anybody know who won the game the Packers VS. The Bears?, This should prove to be a very interesting Super Bowl! It’s been quite awhile since the Bears have made it to the Super Bowl!

        Messy Husband

        A woman said to her friends, “I don’t know what to do. My husband is such a mess maker that you can’t imagine. He doesn’t put anything in its place, I’m always going around the house organizing things.”

        The friend says, ” Take a tip from me. The first we after we were married I told my husband firmly, ‘Every glass and plate that you take, wash when your done and put back in its place.”

        The first woman asked, “Did it help?”

        Her friend said, “I don’t know. I haven’t seen him since.”

          Bad Time For A Blond Joke

          A blind man enters a Ladies Bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a drink. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?

          The bar immediately falls absolutely quiet.

          In a very deep. husky voice, the woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, sir, you should know five things.

          1- The bartender is a blonde girl.

          2- The bouncer is a blonde gal.

          3- I’m 6-foot tall, 200-pound blonde woman with a black belt in Karate.

          4- The woman sitting next to me is blonde and is a professional weight lifter.

          5- The lady to your right is a blonde and is a professional wrestler.

          Now think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?”

          The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head, and declares. “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

          Application

          The Day I started my construction job, I was in the office filing out an employee form when I came to:

          Single__, Married___,Divorced___.

          I marked single. Glancing at the man next to me who was also filing out a form, I noticed he hadn’t marked any of the blanks.

          Instead he’d written, “Yes, in that order.”

            Rest Home

            Aunt Mary, a spinster of 92, had finally consented to go to a rest home, but strictly on a two-week trial basis. Consequently, she took a small overnight case with only the bare essentials.

            A couple of days later her niece was surprised to get a phone call from her demanding more clothes.

            “Please bring me that good black silk, my lavender print, the brown wool…” and she went on and on. Finally after a brief questioning from her niece, Aunt Mary expostulated:

            “There are MEN in this place!”

            The Bride

            The bride was anything but a tidy housekeeper. It didn’t bother her much until one evening when her husband called from the hall, somewhat dismayed: “Honey, what happened to the dust on this table? I had a phone number written on it.”

              Caller: I’m trying to reach nine eleven but my phone doesn’t have an eleven on it.

                  When we were together,

                    Now Time For The Bizarre News

                    The Illinois state legislature just approved a 66 percent increase in the state tax. It’s the latest symptom of the huge budget deficits the entire country is facing

                    Although what we’re going through in the United States is mild compared to some of the austerity measures they are implementing in parts of Europe.

                    Take Romania for example.

                    As part of their new budget Romania is imposing new taxes on witches. Like the broomstick and black cat kind of witches…which apparently a thriving minority in Romania.

                    The tax on witches went into effect as part of the government’s drive to crack down on tax evasion in a country that is in recession. Like any self-employed person, they will pay 16 percent income tax and make contributions to health and pension programs.

                    And they are not happy about it.

                    Angry witches from Romania’s eastern and western regions are planning to descend to the southern plains and the Danube River to threaten the government with spells and spirits.

                    The plan is to use cat excrement and dead dogs to cast spells on the president and government who are forcing them to pay taxes.

                    “This law is foolish. What is there to tax, when we hardly earn anything?” commented a witch named Alisa during a phone interview…probably because she was getting bad reception on her crystal ball.

                    “The lawmakers don’t look at themselves, at how much they make, their tricks; they steal and they come to us asking us to put spells on their enemies.”

                    Lawmakers are prepared however. The president and his aides are going to wear purple to ward off evil spirits.
                    Purple has a high vibration, it makes the wearer superior and wards off evil attacks.

                    Well, it’s cheaper than bodyguards.

                    Alcohol Blamed For Birds Deaths In Romania

                    BUCHAREST, Romania- Dozens of dead starlings found in Romania city were not victims of avian flu, as first feared, but were victims of alcohol poisoning, officials said. Residents found dead birds on the outskirts pf Constanta, BBC News reported this week.
                    Authorities were notified out of concern they might have died from avian flu. Romania has had outbreaks of avian flu in the past, including a March 2010 incident that resulted in some birds being culled. However, local veterinary officials said the starlings died after eating grape pulp left over from wine-making. Analysis of the starlings’ gizzards showed they died from alcohol poisoning, the head of the local sanitary and veterinary authority said.

          Bad Time For A Blond Joke

          A blind man enters a Ladies Bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a drink. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?

          The bar immediately falls absolutely quiet.

          In a very deep. husky voice, the woman next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, sir, you should know five things.

          1- The bartender is a blonde girl.

          2- The bouncer is a blonde gal.

          3- I’m 6-foot tall, 200-pound blonde woman with a black belt in Karate.

          4- The woman sitting next to me is blonde and is a professional weight lifter.

          5- The lady to your right is a blonde and is a professional wrestler.

          Now think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?”

          The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head, and declares. “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”

          Application

          The Day I started my construction job, I was in the office filing out an employee form when I came to:

          Single__, Married___,Divorced___.

          I marked single. Glancing at the man next to me who was also filing out a form, I noticed he hadn’t marked any of the blanks.

          Instead he’d written, “Yes, in that order.”

      Physical exercise is good for you. I know that I should do it daily but my body doesn’t want me to do too much, so I have worked out this program of strenuous activities that do not require physical exercise.You are invited to use my program without charge.

      1) Beating around the bush

      2) Jumping to conclusions

          Political Support

          It was election time and a politician decided to go out to the local reservation and try to get the Native American vote. They were all assembled in the Council Hall to hear the speech. The politician had worked up to his finale, and the crowd was getting more and more excited. “I promise better education opportunities for Native Americans!”

          The crowd went wild, shouting “Hoya! Hoya!”

          The politician was a bit puzzled by the native word, but was encouraged by their enthusiasm. “I promise gambling reforms to allow a Casino on the Reservations!”

          “Hoya! Hoya!” cried the crowd, stomping their feet.

          “I promise more social reforms and job opportunities for Native Americans!”

          The crowd reached a frenzied pitch yelling. “Hoya! Hoya! Hoya!”

          After the speech, the politician was touring the reservation, and saw a tremendous herd of cattle. Since he was raised on a ranch, and knew a bit about cattle, he asked the Chief if he could get closer to take a look ay the cattle.

          “Sure,” the Chief said, “But be careful not to step in the hoya.”

            Getting Snow?

            A diary of one person’s love of snow…

            December 8: 6:00 PM. It started to snow. The first snow of the season: we took out cocktails and sat for hours by the window. watching the huge soft flakes drift down. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print: so romantic, we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow.

            December 9: Woke to a blanket of crystal white snow covering the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Moving here was the best idea I’ve ever had. Shoveled for the 1st time in years & felt like a boy again. What a perfect life.

            December 12: Sun melted all the lovely snow but good neighbor said we’d have a white Christmas. Then commented that by the end of Winter, I’d never want to see snow again.

            December 14: Snow, Lovely snow! 8″ last night and cold, too.
            Wind took my breath away but warmed up shoveling. This is the life! Later a snowplow came back, again, but I’m getting in better shape. Just wish I didn’t huff & puff so much.

            December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold the van and bought a 4×4; snow tires for the wife’s car & 2 extra. Shoveled , then stocked the freezer. Wife wants a wood stove in case the power goes off. I think that’s silly- we aren’t in Alaska…

            December 16: Ice storm this morning. Landed on my butt trying to salt the driveway. Hurt real bad. Wife laughed for an hour. (I think that was very cruel.)

            December 17: Too cold and icy to go anywhere. Power was off for 5 hours. Piled on the blankets to stay warm with nothing to do but stare at the wife & try not to upset her. Can’t believe I’m freezing to death in my own living room. (Won’t admit that I should have bought that wood stove: hate it when she’s right.)

            December 20: Power’s back on and had another 14″ of the stuff. Shoveled all day. Snowplow came by twice. Kids too busy playing hockey to help. Hardware store sold out. Next shipment of snow blowers due in March. Neighbor says I have to shovel or city will have it done and bill me. ( Think he’s lying…)

            December 22: White Christmas!!! 13″ more of white stuff & it’s so cold. it won’t melt ’till August. Tried to shovel-just too tired. Tried to get help from neighbor who has a snow plow on his truck but he said he was too busy (Think she’s lying.)

            December 23; Only 2″ of snow today and had warmed up to 0.
            Wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house. What is she nuts!!! What didn’t she tell me to do that a month ago?
            Says she did. (Think she’s lying.)

            December 24: 6″. Snow packed so hard by snowplow. I broke the shovel. I’m gonna get that snow plow driver. ( I know he waits around the corner to see if I’m finished, then roars by at a 100, sending snow flying all over.) Wife wanted me to sing carols with her & open our presents, but I was busy watching for the darn snow plow.

            December 25: Merry Christmas. Another 20″ of the slop. Snowed in again & the idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. I hate snow! Then the Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation. I wanted to hit him over the head with my shovel. Wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she’s an idiot and if I have to watch “It’s a Wonderful life” one more time, I’ll throw her into the snowbank.

            December 26: Still snowed in.

            December 27: Temperature dropped another 30 degrees and the pipes froze.

            December 28: Warmed up to -25. Still snowed in and the wife is making me crazy!!!!!!

            December 29: Another 10″ & neighbor says I have to shovel the roof before it caves in. That’s the silliest thing I ever heard.
            How dumb does he think I’m?

            December 30: Roof caved in. Another 9″ in forecast.

            December 31: Set fire to what’s left of the house: no more shoveling.

            January 8: I feel sooooo good. I just love those little white pills they kept giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?

              Election Win The politician was sitting at his campaign headquaters when the phone rang. He listened intently, and after a moment his face brightened. When he hung up, he immediately phoned his mother to tell her the good news.

              “Honestly?”

                  New Mattress

                  Our mom needed a new mattress for her antique bed, so my brother, Josh, and I decided to buy her one as a gift. The problem was we weren’t sure what to get, because it was an odd size. Fortunately, my brother happened to be visiting my mother one day when I called home.

                  “Measure the bed frame before you leave, ” I told him.

                  “I don’t have a tape measure.”

                  ‘You can use a dollar bill, ” I suggested, ” each one is six inches long.”

                  “Can’t, ” he replied after digging through his wallet, “I only have a ten.”

                  Traffic Court

                  A New York man was forced to take a day off from work to appear for a minor traffic summons. He grew increasingly restless as he waited hour after endless hour for his case to be heard.

                  When his name was called late in the afternoon, he stood before the judge, only to hear that court would be adjourned for the next day and he would have to return the next day.

                  “What for?” he snapped at the judge.

                  His honor, equally irked by a tedious day and sharp query roared, “Twenty dollars contempt of court. That’s why!”

                  Then noticing the man checking his wallet, the judge relented. “That’s all right. You don’t have to pay now.”

                  The young man replied, ” I’m just seeing if I have enough for two more words.”

    Congratulations Marina! Especially I like the thing about giving special care to autistic child. For this we should all love you. It doesn’t hurt that you’re pretty. But if you can give special care to the autistic child, not to mention your philology, you deserve great welcome here in USA!

    Did you ever wonder if maybe your philology is a little bit of, or close to, Asperger Syndrome? All things of this type being on a spectrum. Where do we draw a line of division between “autism” and “gifted”?

    This guy obviously have heard something about the autism spectrum, but nothing about philology. Does he think that philology is a disorder?

          Is gotten correct grammar?(another hotforwords inspiration brought to me from a fellow student)

          … info.-sourced from= http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_gotten_correct_grammar
          ***Although the British stopped using the past participle gotten about three hundred years ago, the American colonists and their descendants–especially in New England–still tend to use it.

          Some English teachers have tried to ban its usage to make American English conform to British English, especially during the nineteenth and early twentieth century when there was a movement to purify English. Others are just not used to its use because it is not used in their region and hear it as an error.

          Ultimately, language is convention. If you are writing for a formal audience outside of New England, you might want to use the simple past form got instead. It is like the dictum to never end a sentence with a preposition because that is something some people just will not put–ummm–up with which some people just will not put!

          Yes.

          For example: “Since I last saw you, you have gotten big!”

          Gotten is correct, and very old. In England many people wrongly assume that gotten is a modern Americanism, but the truth is the English more-or-less stopped using it, and have forgotten (!) that they used to use it.

          That said, “gotten” isn’t good English. In most cases other, more precise and meaningful words should be used in its place.

          While “have got” sounds wrong to American ears, “have gotten” can usually be replaced by “have become”, and “have been able to” or “have had the chance/opportunity to” would make better sense in other situations.

          “You would have got along with him” is proper English.

            Can’t leave such good company. Think I’ll stay. BTW I use “gotten” quite a lot. I’m a real laugh riot to listen to (in which to listen?). Thanks to my mixed heritage, in casual conversation I have a bit of a Virginia drawl, use some Pennsylvania Dutch and Scot’s terminology, and have been told that I have an “Indiana accent,” whatever the hell that is. Speaking formally, tho, I come across much mo’ betta.

            I once had an employee who was a real stickler for not ending sentences with prepositions. I walked into our office once and asked her, “Where’s Alan at?”
            She hollered, “Why must you ALWAYS end a sentence with a preposition!!”
            To which I replied, “Oh, I’m sorry, Marilyn! Where’s Alan at, bitch!”

    I don’t think I ever got an answer to the question, “Will we get back the comment numbering that we had before DISQUS?”

    Is it my imagination, or is the site now slow to load and scroll pages?

    • PaparazziKid says:

      It’s a plugin that Marina has to go and physically add to the site. Which will never happen because Disqus isn’t the default comments for the site, therefore making the numbering not work.

      Notice how your comment count suddenly stopped when she put disqus on? It’s because the filter isn’t set to the new comment system for the custom plugin.

      • BigBhd95 says:

        HOW do you even know about that -shit- er stuff???

      • Camp Kohler - Sacramento CA says:

        Does anyone know definitively if there is no plugin for comment numbering using DISQUS?

        BTW, I just saw that over a hundred items loaded in the page. There is too much crap and it takes wayyyyyy to long to load. Maybe the doodads like Recent Comments, Recently Active Members and so forth—anything other than the comments (and ads of course)—could be disabled for the session by the user with one button at the top of the page in order to speed things up.

        • PaparazziKid says:

          If there was a plugin for this, it would most likely be developed by disqus, and It’s way to in the back of our minds to develop it, because disqus is not used wordpress-wide.

          I would imagine If I had the time that I could write the hack for disqus numbering… I am sure it wouldn’t be that hard, but it would require marina to go into the core files of disqus because it’s a custom code to add. (which is a huge hassle)

          How do I know this? I’m a wordpress and wordpress plugin developer. Also buddypress.

        • If you are just talking about a regular number on every comment so you can access it or put it in a link… they have that already.
          It is in the time stamp on every comment header.

          Is that what you mean?

          • Camp Kohler - Sacramento CA says:

            Not exactly. There were links that could be used in the same manner as you have explained, but we used to have visible comment numbers for human consumption. For example—I hope I remember this correctly—the first-level comments in a blog were 1, 2, 3 and so forth. The replies at the next level down (or as it appears on the page, the next indented to the right) would be 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 or 2,1, 2.2, 2.3 and so forth. The replies to those would be 1.1.1, 1.1.2 and so forth. In that way, not only was there a number that one could site in the text if desired, but the location of the comment was easily comprehended.

    How come this forum isn’t about language anymore? What happened to all the users discussing about linguistics and/or philology? What aLx wrote a year ago is even more relevant now:

    yeah, a good way of putting it if you can’t tell linguistics from philology. plus, there are no real linguistic discussions in here. not anymore. people state something without giving any reason, any support for their claim. then, if you ask and argue against it, you don’t get a fucking answer. or, people feel like this is not the place for discussing things that actually are related to linguistics.

    so, no. no linguistics here. there were better times. serious discussions, good discussions. long gone.
    maybe chuanlee is right, though. maybe this isn’t the place for discussions like that anymore. i don’t know. buzzword is not really here anymore. that should tell people something. others are more or less gone, too. i’d never thought i’d say that and i’ll regret it as soon as i submit this comment, but, p11 unfortunately seems to be gone as well. people don’t get involved in debates about aspects of language anymore. i don’t know about you, but it seemed to me that this _should_ be a place where things like that do take place.

    instead — well, whatcha got on here? people talking about … yeah, what _are_ they talking about? the ain’t talking about language, that’s for sure. and they don’t get encouraged to do so. i don’t know, maybe i’m still here cause i think that there will be some sort of … language-related thread.

      ~the string thingy threaded a new form of dictationargh / aargh / aaargh / aaaargh / aaarrgh / aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrgh (etc) – exclamation, usually ironic or humorous (in this sense usually written and rarely verbal) – Argh, or more dramatically Aaaaaaaaaargh, is an exclamation – a written scream. Aaaarrrgh (there are hundreds of popular different spelling variants) typically expresses a scream or cry of ironic or humorous frustration. There seems no doubt that Aaargh is flourishing in its various forms due to the immediacy and popularity of internet communications (blogs, emails, etc), although actually it has existed in the English language as an exclamation of strong emotion (surprise, horror, anguish according to the OED) since the late 1700s. The OED prefers the spelling Aargh, but obviously the longer the version, then the longer the scream. In this respect it’s a very peculiar and unusual word – since it offers such amazing versatility for the user. Spelling varies most commonly in the number of ‘A’s, and to a lesser extent in the number of ‘R’s. Repetition of ‘G’s and ‘H’s is far less prevalent. If you are wondering what Aaaaaarrrrgh and variants actually sound like, then consider the many types of outrageous screams which traditionally feature in fight/death/falling scenes in TV/cinema. Notable and fascinating among these is the stock sound effect known as the Wilhelm Scream. Incidentally (apparently) the term Wilhelm Scream was coined by Star Wars sound designer Ben Burtt, so-called because it was used for the character Private Wilhelm in a 1953 film The Charge at Yellow River. The sound effect was (again apparently) originally titled ‘man being eaten by an alligator’. Please note that this screen version did not directly imply or suggest the modern written usage of Aaaarrrgh as an expression of shock – it’s merely a point of related interest. The frustration signified by Aaargh can be meant in pure fun or in some situations (in blogs for example) with a degree of real vexation. The powerful nature of the expression is such that it is now used widely as a heading for many articles and postings dealing with frustration, annoyance, etc. The main usage however seems to be as a quick response in fun, as an ironic death scream, which is similar to more obvious expressions like ‘you’re killing me,’ or ‘I could scream’. To some Aaaaargh suggests the ironic idea of throwing oneself out of a towerblock window to escape whatever has prompted the irritation. AAAAAARRRRGH (capitals tends to increase the volume..) is therefore a very flexible and somewhat instinctual expression: many who write it in emails and blogs would not easily be able to articulate its exact meaning, and certainly it is difficult to interpret a precise meaning for an individual case without seeing the particular exchange and what prompted the Aaargh response. That said, broadly speaking, we can infer the degree of emotion from the length of the version used. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgh clearly has a touch more desperation than Aaarrgh. The use of Aaaaargh is definitely increasing in the 21st century, and in different ways. Often the meaning includes an inward element like Homer Simpson’s ‘doh’, or an incredulous aspect like Victor Meldrew’s ‘I don’t believe it’, and perhaps in time different spellings will come to mean different things. Interestingly the web makes it possible to measure the popularity of the the different spelling versions of Aargh, and at some stage the web will make it possible to correlate spelling and context and meaning. For now, googling the different spellings will show you their relative popularity, albeit it skewed according to the use of the term on the web. I suspect that given the speed of the phone text medium, usage in texting is even more concentrated towards the shorter versions. See Oliver Steele’s fascinating Aargh webpage, (he gives also Hmmm the same treatment..) showing the spellings and their Google counts as at 2005. Interestingly the (April) 2008 Google count for Argh has now trebled to 9.3 million, and is no doubt still growing fast along with its many variations.

    When you stand a row of dominoes on end and tip them over, you know where the last domino will fall. However in life, when you start tipping over dominoes the end result is rarely what you expect.

    Take the blizzard in New York a couple of weeks ago. It dumped over twenty inches of snow on the City. Then streets and sanitation crews took the opportunity to stage a work slow down in order to protest budget cuts. Because of the resulting impassible streets, trash wasn’t collected for weeks.

    The mountain of garbage piled in the street would have meant a lot less to one man if it weren’t for the fact that one such mountain was piled right underneath his ninth floor apartment window…the window he jumped out of in an attempt to commit suicide!

    Authorities say the man was saved by the heap of trash bags.

    The 26-year-old was taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan after the attempt where was listed in critical condition.

    His aunt said it was lucky the city had the snow and hadn’t cleared the garbage.

      Bradenton, Fla. – Florida police said they arrested a bank robbery suspect after his wife recognized his face in a surveillance photo on the news and reported him. The Manatee County Sherrif’s Office said Troy Sandifar, 45, allegedly robbed a First Bank Branch of an unspecified amount of money at about 10:50 a.m. from Afra Sandifar, who recognized her husband’s face from a surveillance camera video broadcast on the evening news, the Bradenton (Fla.) Herald reported Thursday. Deputies said Troy Sandifar fled the apartment with the cash from the robbery and his vehicle was stopped by authorities. However, he refused commands to exit the vehicle and was spotted swallowing what appeared to be a large amount of rock cocaine. Sandifar was arrested after a brief struggle and taken to the Manatee Memorial Hospital where he was treated for ingestion of drugs. Deputies said he made a full confession while being interviewed at the hospital. The suspect was transferred to the Manatee County Jail and held without bond, Deputies said.

    Sport Joke

    After Florida coach Steve Spurrior passes away and enters the Pearly Gates, God takes him on a tour. He shows Steve A little 2-bedroom house with a faded UF banner hanging from the front porch. “This is your home, Coach. Most people don’t get their own house up here,” God exclaims.

    Little Steve looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one setting on the top of the hill. It’s a huge two-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all of the windows. LSU flags line both sides of the sidewalk with a huge purple and gold LSU banner hanging between the marble columns.

    “Thanks for the home, God, but let me ask you a question. I get this little 2 bedroom house with a faded Florida banner, and Nick Saban gets a mansion with new LSU banners and flags all over the place. Why is that?

    Going Camping?

    Some tips on better camping:

    –When using a public campground, a tuba placed on your picnic table will keep the campsites on either side vacant.

    –Get even with a bear who raided your food bag by kicking his favorite stump apart and eating all the ants.

    –Old socks can be made into high fiber beef jerky by smoking them over an open fire.

    –When smoking a fish, never inhale,

    –A hot rock placed in your sleeping bag will keep your feet warm. A hot enchilada works almost as well, but the cheese sticks between your toes.

    –While the Swiss Army Knife has been popular for years, the Swiss Navy Knife has remained largely unheralded. Its single blade functions as a tiny canoe paddle.

    –Lint from your navel makes a handy fire starter. Warning: Remove lint from navel before applying the match.

    –You can compress the diameter of your rolled up sleeping bag by running over it with your car.

    A One-Wish Genie

    A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a bottle. She picked it up and rubbed it, and lo-and-behold ‘a genie’ appeared! The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes.

    The genie said, “Nope, sorry, three-wish genies are a storybook myth. I’m a one-wish genie. So…What’ll it be?

    The woman did not hesitate. She said,” I want peace in the middle east. See this map? Iwant these countries to stop fighting with each other and I want all the Arabs to love the Jews and Americans and vice-versa. It will bring about the world peace and harmony.”

    The genie looked at the map and exclaimed,”Lady, be reasonable. These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m out of shape after being in a bottle for five hundred years.
    I’m good but not THAT good! I don’t think it can be done. Make another wish and please be reasonable.”

    The woman thought for a minute and said, ” Well, I’ve never been able to find the right man. You know, one that’s considerate and fun, likes to cook and help with the house cleaning, gets along with my family, doesn’t watch sports all the time and is faithful. That’s what I wish for…a good man.”

    The genie let out a sigh and said, “Let me see that map again…”

    Close my eyes, hide in the dark
    It’s a curtain call, come on come all
    All I do is try to make it simple
    The ones that make it complicated
    Never get congratulated
    I’m somethin different in all aspects
    Don’t want a woman just to love her assets
    I Still wife her up even with her flat chest
    The type to get hurt
    But that’s the past tense

    Hey There! How you all doing? What’s up today in class? Just another cold day here. It is Elvis Presley’s birthday, I love Elvis, He was often referred to as the King Of Rock’N'Roll I don’t doubt that for a second, On of the most talented artists/singers of our time. I was real big in Karate for a few years, and the name/style I was in was Kenpo, or is also pronounced Kempo Karate, which through being in the class and doing some study, this is the same exact form of Karate that I was part of. He mostly took lessons from Ed Parker the father and founder, that started this style, he formed it from other styles, the best he though , that would be affective in today’s standards, a lot of circular motions with the hands block, punching, Karate Chop, I just thought this may have a interest being his birth day and all. He got his Black Belt in Kenpo. He had a knife signed by Ed Parker and a lot of times carried the symbol of The Kenpo Karates Crest of symbols, that make up the crest, that Ed Parker, and with the help of somebody else they formed this crest that stands for Kenpo, then and still today, Elvis would put this symbol of his guitar, this is how he stayed and got himself better in shape later in life, for a certain phase at least. Happy Birthday Elvis, You are sorely missed, may you R.I.P. thanks for letting me know about that gravity boy, Elvis was a multi- style artist he did country, Rock’N'Roll of may kinds, he sand Gospel songs, also Christmas songs, songs about being in the military, many different themed songs! And he was in films, many though or say he can’t act, but he damn sure could sign! He sang many cover songs, and songs wrote by other people, I’m not sure how much Elvis was actually was involved with the writing of the lyrics, the reason, I didn’t want to close this already underway post! I wrote it up above gravity boy was that after I had already gotten into my post when after a while just happened to look down and see it. See you soon I will post some more hoe anyone if they are interested! Later!

        Hello leoNard I had what I would call a cool thought provoking, my thoughts belief etc, and more on Elvis ans Kenpo karate Ed parker and some others being slolely in the kenpo family and others that have influenced me and movies as well I like, I may have exceed the word count it was starting to go way up there anyhow, I didn’ see my window restart thing, and I had something I had to do so when I get back to add a few finishing touches on my big compilation, and the damn computer restarted, and I lost it all. I have you in mind, thanks so much for the cool video with Marina, and sexy, if ya know what I mean, I loved that footage of Elvis, and his Kenpo sparring, and goofing around, he seemed to enjoy this art a lot, I had more video’s website with info, and more all lined up, I have been dueling with my thoughts , motions feelings, my opinions, my beliefs, What I see as truth, and religion and much to say about it, the last couple of days I fought myself to not attempt such a thing, so I debated, phyched myself up, tried to motivate myself, but with no luck, these were very open and straight forward, in your face type of stuff, I was following my feelings, or some force that drives me to do so. The fear of what people would say or think, or label me, or judge me for just bring my everything that had had flowing, and this strange feeling I can’t describe it, but it seems to take over myself, like another force of so type or another being take iver the controls, with everything I was thinking, uncensored strait out the way I feel see and believe things, I know my views maybe unpopular or different from most, I was on a rooller coast ride without end. the first day I went over the word limit for sure, but then and other feelings came about, and it was like a very tough conflict, of where to attempt to send them in segments, but them, I felt I would offend, get someone mad avoid me, just plain hate me for the views I was thinking of sharing, but in the end all that time effort, and all the energy, or forces that drove me, was all for not, maybe that was a good thing I chopped it so far down, that it resembled nothing that I work so hard for, it has been putting behind on replies, and posting in the lesson pages, and the metal forum, except my long goings on that passed through there, was a bit like what else I don’t want t o but I di it or something does it, without a thought, just type and type without thought, or concern of what others thought, but when the typing very strong forces urges stopped, and so did the works, of questionable subjects, and I just sent it out the whole brutal truth, and many things, that people might have not cared for. I never intended what so ever to do such a thing, but I couldn’t contain these feelings etc, they become to strong and begged to come out. Well the second day today, I had all the replies, and what I thought to be some good interesting entertaining facts , that I did a lot of research to find, about Kenpo, Elvis, Ed Parker, and some others that had interesting facts or videos about them. I had all this compiled and that unknown feeling over again, I tyoped and typed and typed, until it had grown into a monster a huge post, that I’m pretty sure was over the word limit, then like I said, the computer restarted itself before I had a chance to cancel it from doing so, I kind of felt relief and a little relieved that some of things straight just type out what the feeling was dictating, and my fingers, they seemed to have taken on their own tone,I can’t describe it, with going over the same ways I attempted to explain, and try to make so kind of sense of it, or maybe it was lost or erased, when I tried to do this, I can’r remember what I posted and what I didn’t anymore, I tripped into a big war of the bands and who was the first, and who created or started black metal heavy metal, if become a very big task trying to find the answer that I sought, I was afraid to post my findings, as to maybe stir some people up that I didn’t mean to, I was only think of posts my research and findings regardless whether I believed the content or not, I have been trying to diversify my field, but I like the extreme, and over the top, face melting hardcore, deathcore, or aggressive thrash, I was attempting at times to post the bands that where more talked about, and more popular with the likes of Sabbath, Venom, Kreator, Bathory became a big issue in this black metal thing, they did start as black metal, but then changed back and forth mostly viking metal, but they had some other views at least for a bit, them and Venom was both fight for the original or true black metal band, then some bands I never heard of, and some weird goings on in Norway, was saying they started the real black metal, they killed over the right to be a true black band, yes real murders, or so the info that I seen claimed, they may have been metaphoric term to express on band murdering their career, or the bands hope of being successful, It was some weird stuff, The their was a band to claim they started it as black magic, or black metal they claimed to be true satanist or haters of god christians, and they perform real and true rituals and ceremonies one stage, they claimed they were the true ones, and real, They actually did the song about come to the sabbat, and they originated it, I know Merciful Fate, had the same song. Well to many people claiming too many things, but it gave me some ideas what to post that was different, or at least not as well known bands, to try and make a wider selection, or black metal and other genres, it had me all freaked out once I thought I found the answers, then someone else comes on and makes the same claims, Be real doesn’t mean original, it is true that al ot of the bands now a days are just actors, or performers, and use these themes to go along with their song, that’s what Bathory claimed he just used the satantinic, and viking metal as a theme, and form the songs they made based on these themes as a guide. I know the music sure has become more harsher more etrteme, mixing styles, changing up their styles of singing in just one song, then it seemed to change itself, into a fusion of metal styles, and even the singing styles to back them up, I love hardcore or straight edge, but straight seems to be really hard to find much from this genre, I like it all old new in between, A lot of the bands now are extreme, but the signing too much anymore has turned into growling, and even worse pig squeals , which I find very annoying, but I did the music just fine. The roads are many, which way do I go Which way Do I go, I’m ending transmission, this is your best friend Neo! Peace, I will try and find some of the same thing I had in the original post, but not quite sure , if I can find or remember what all I was using, or if you would even like going over these subjects in different ways, views, adding onto what may have been said, well I figure I would answer your posts, I need to reply to you in the forum as well, and I need to get a reply to my man VenomRock before I call it a day, I need to concentrate more on my what i feel to be good posts, I try to add different things, pictures jokes, and some other subjects, I spend a lot of time into most anything I post, and get back to myself more, as in the metal forum I was tearing it up, and posting a lot, but with little strange feelings and such it has set me way behind, I must crack gown and get to some serious postings, no one seems to like to hear my personal outlook on things, expect maybe you ,and VenomRock. Well I got to end this getting late and getting mighty tired, just wanted to make sure that you didn’t think I forgot about, like Elvis would have sang , You were always on my mind, in a good brotherly love kind of way though. I’m gone see you later on, I will eventually hopefully get back into the groove that I enjoy, and at least for a few it seemed to have some kind of impact, am I losing myself, the edge if ever had one, am I just being pushed aside or ignored, or just plain don’t take the time to enjoy a brothers topics, and ideas, and such, because I’m different, but what do they think they are, We all are different in ways, and who wants to be the exactly the same as some one else anyhow. I very much appreciate your caring, and understanding, and putting up with what I’m, your a true friends! Cheers to you! Later!

        Hello leoNard finally getting back to you on The Kenpo Kare issues, and people that are involved, more popular, in even is in the movies, and I’m stretching across a mass of style, and the more famous, most in movies, or very well known for their outstanding achievments. I will fufill my promise on this! The Kenpo Crest And It’s True Meaning
        The Belts/Colors explained, but this was the only such video I could find on it is of very low quality,Well let try to explain, the belt, most mean the rank or status that you have earned or attained through yourself hard work and training, It starts out White, Advanced White, Yellow, advanced Yellow, Orange, Advanced orange, Purple, Advanced Purple,Blue Belt,Advanced Blue, Green Belt, Advanced Green Belt, Three Degrees in Brown 10 Degrees in Black Belt, that the ranks as best as I can remember the advanced means yout half way or better on your way to the next rank or degrees, the advanced is shown by using a strip of tape that is the same as the color that you are working toward in the system,Say if your yellow belt, you have to get an advanced status, for the normal or average person, by achieving advanaced yellow belt then you would receive a stripe it is colored tape, on both sides of the belt, the from advanced you got to a completely new color, which in this example, would be your Orange Belt. This holds true for all the lower levels, which you notice at first you just get the Brown Or Plain Black Belt, from there you may progress to a degree, this is for the higher ranks in the system.

      Rock ‘N’ Roll Neo, It’s all electric. —>Megadeth w/ Sean Harris of Diamond Head.

      Alice might have been too blunt in this song about Elvis’s demise, but Elvis was his rock ‘n’ roll idol. It’s true that Alice was a big fan of Elvis. People of course said Cooper’s song was disrespecting the one who was the “King of Rock ‘N’ Roll” but all he did was tell some harsh truths about what happened to his idol. It could refer to ANYONE who lets the excess of fame and fortune lead them down the path to “DragonTown”

      ….I’ll agree with Gravityboy, Elvis would be pleased with your song selections. Right On Neo m/

            Hey there V how you doing, what’s up some more cool selections in music and videos, ha Les thought it was way to loud, and felt he didn’t fit into the band Metallica, which I think he was right, he had his own thing anyhow! Oh well what can you do! It is so great to hear from you. It’s getting anymore I can’t remember what I posted and what I didn’t. It seems to be a hard time to articulate, and then have the guts to print it, one time the computer restarted it self I think it was do to a windows update,thing. I had some ideas for my metal posts but they lead me in so many directions, that I got all tangled up, and not sure what I should chose anymore. When I post the Music I become accustomed to most people don’t seem to like or care for it, I go back in time I fell like I’m coming back home. But it seems so outdated and some of it seems to kind of lack, the extreme, over the top, hardcore, black metal metal and heavy metal issues that contradict each other, it leaves me not sure where to go. Where come on back ya hear, this is Shepard errr ahh I mean Neo signing off on this post, I still got one post in the metal forum that leoNard made , and need to respond to that for sure, later dude!

When I post the Music I become accustomed to most people don’t seem to like or care for it, I go back in time I fell like I’m coming back home. But it seems so outdated and some of it seems to kind of lack, the extreme, over the top, hardcore, black metal metal and heavy metal issues that contradict each other, it leaves me not sure where to go. Where come on back ya hear, this is Shepard errr ahh I mean Neo signing off on this post, I still got one post in the metal forum that leoNard made , and need to respond to that for sure, later dude! Peace!

    ***What’s he raving about now?***

    Hi guys! Here’s a challenge: make sense of these statements!

    1) Ox house: a set of symbols used for writing.

    2) Celtic languages: mind your Ps and Qs!

    Anyone want to explain? :razz:

    • Anonymous says:

      The second statement must be related to P-celtic and Q-celtic languages, the two branches of the Celtic languages – there was a consonant in Proto-Celtic that evolved into “p” in the one type of Celtic languages and into “q” in the other type.

      In the whole Indo-European family of languages there was a similar bifurcation into Centum and Satem languages.

      • Evan Owen says:

        Bingo! (That’s American for “Exactly right!”)

        Your “Centum-Satem” article will take some serious reading to grasp fully, but for now let’s do a ***word request: {labial fricative}*** :grin:

          ‘Ridiculous
          Lawsuits’ Are No Laughing Matter

          A Florida doctor was hospitalized with severe abdominal pains after eating an
          entire grilled artichoke at a restaurant, then sued the restaurant for not
          telling him he wasn’t supposed to eat the outer leaves.

          That’s just number five on a list of the “Most Ridiculous Lawsuits of 2010″
          compiled by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), an affiliate of
          the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.


          “While many of these lawsuits are humorous and others quite troubling, the
          damage inflicted by abusive litigation is very real,” said ILR President Lisa
          Rickard.

          “More litigation is something we can ill afford in this troubled
          economy that desperately needs more jobs, not more lawsuits.”

          Topping the list of the “Most Ridiculous” is the suit filed by a West Virginia
          woman against Oprah Winfrey, George W. Bush, Laura Bush, and three doctors. She
          claimed the physicians implanted a 3-D camera and a wire sensor inside her
          during surgery, and the defendants were monitoring her 24 hours a day through
          the camera.

          Number two is the suit filed by a Montana girl who tried to commit
          suicide by driving into oncoming traffic. The resulting crash killed a
          four-months-pregnant woman and her 13-year-old son. The suit, filed
          against the pregnant victim’s estate, alleged that the woman inflicted mental
          pain
          and suffering by causing the crash.

          Though the
          shelves are usually fertile, if anoxic conditions in the sedimentary deposits
          prevail, the shelves may in geologic time become sources of fossil fuels.

           Economic significance
          Number three was filed by an incarcerated killer after a Massachusetts judge
          rejected his request for electrolysis as part of a state-funded sex change.

          Number four was filed by a Wisconsin teacher who pleaded guilty
          to having sex with a 13-year-old boy in her home, then sued the boy’s parents
          for failing to protect the child from her.

          Her claim “represents convoluted reasoning reminiscent of Lewis Carroll,”
          a court declared. “We will not follow down the rabbit hole and open the door for
          a child molester to sue the victim’s parents for their failure to lock their
          child away or for their ineffectiveness in trying to stop the child from being
          sexually abused.”
          (hot words for 

          U)ha-humamore….

          Another lawsuit cited by the ILR was filed by an Oregon man who
          claimed police destroyed the mystical powers of his medicine bag when they
          opened it during his drunk driving arrest.

Working on my dream has been ongoing. Finally caught a break, using my experience as a vector bender and captain of industry (lol) to help a young fella start up his own business. Doing work that I enjoy and can do even if physically decrepit in the future. And only a 2 mile commute, compared to 55 miles w/my last gig. And it’s looking like success is on the

    I just think happiness is what makes people pretty.. Happy people are beautiful!

    I think the opposite is also true – pretty people have more reasons to be happy and get more positive reinforcements from others than unpretty people. And yes, being happy facilitates good look even at the physiological level through the hormonal system.

    In the systems theory such interaction is called feedforward, as the opposite of feedback.

    {Smokeless tobacco}

    Confusingly, the English word snuff is translated to snus in Swedish and the word snuff is, often incorrectly and outside Sweden, used to refer to both the inhaled form and the placed under the lip form of snus/snuff.

    However, snuff intended to be inhaled through the nose is referred to as torrsnus (dry snus) or more correctly as luktsnus (smelling-snus) in Swedish. The moist form of snuff placed under the upper lip is just called snus in Swedish, and the correct word for referring to this form would be snus in English as well.

    Moreover, what may add to the confusion is that the word snuff may also refer to dipping tobacco (also known as moist snuff which may confuse even more), which is applied to the lower lip and the gums rather than inhaled or placed under the upper lip. Thus all three forms are different products.

    Snus is a form of snuff that is used in a manner similar to American dipping tobacco, but typically does not result in the need for spitting. Snus is also unique in that it is steam-pasteurized rather than fire-cured, is not fermented and contains no added sugar…source wikipedia…. <a href="

        Thirteen days after Western Christmas, on January 7th, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates its Christmas, in accordance with the old Julian calendar. It’s a day of both solemn ritual and joyous celebration

        After the 1917 Revolution, Christmas was banned throughout Russia, along with other religious celebrations. It wasn’t until 75 years later, in 1992, that the holiday was openly observed. Today, it’s once again celebrated in grand fashion, with the faithful participating in an all-night Mass in incense-filled Cathedrals amidst the company of the painted icons of Saints. …__sourced from… http://russian-crafts.com/customs/christmas.html

    Marina, if you are thinking about the second part of the personal vlog in the future, I have such an idea: maybe that time instead of objective facts you would present your subjective point of view about what shocked or amazed or surprised you after coming to the USA, what was different in the US than you had expected, what was completely new for you, what was better and what worse than in Russia, how long it took you to get used to the different culture, whether or not the contact with the real informal spoken English was difficult for you (supposing you had been accustomed mainly to “academic” English before going to the US), and so on.

There is a lot of interesting things to read also. She could set it up to run and pay for itself and quit it (not close it) if she wanted.

    Dear Marina,
    It was fun to see you as a cartoon, but of course no cartoon can surpass the real thing. Imagine how hot the scene in the strip club would have been with many real women!
    Many of my dreams have come true, because I worked and studied hard to make them possible. I studied electronics engineering and military science so I could get valuable work experience with the Army Signal Corps and the US Navy in military electronics. This got me a great career at the right time in Silicon Valley, during the computer and Internet era. So things have been even better than some of my dreams. I’m not as wealthy as you are, but you are in a completely different lifestyle. Of course, it’s still possible to dream of future good things: Imagine how frightening it would be to travel all the way to Russia and meet your parents so I can ask them for permission: Я женюсь ваша дочь, да?

    Sorry to hear you had difficulty with your first boss. Something that I have heard time and time again is that women absolutely dislike working with other women. Is this a phenomenon that transcends national boundaries? I wanted to say to everyone “put your thoughts in the comments below” but its not for me to say that. Anyway, in your case, the cloud developed into a silver lining. I have one or two examples where that occurred with me but I am too shy to share them.

I know the depiction was planned to be humorous and exaggerated but some people might believe that was true (some Americans know little about other countries). It provoked Youtube comments about “extreme poverty”, “people dying of starvation in Russia” etc.

    Most towns in Russia has district heating systems (the concept rather unknown in American towns), also natural gas was cheap, so really few people were “freezing in their rooms”.

  86. Maybe there was a release of gas deep in the Earth and it came up in different spots…

    Life for an actual canary in a coal mine could be described in three words – short but meaningful. Early coal mines did not feature ventilation systems, so miners would routinely bring a caged canary into new coal seams. Canaries are especially sensitive to methane and carbon monoxide, which made them ideal for detecting any dangerous gas build-ups. As long as the canary in a coal mine kept singing, the miners knew their air supply was safe. A dead canary in a coal mine signalled an immediate evacuation.

    And don’t forget what just happened there around that area not too long ago, a massive release of oil. That might have caused a shift and the gas channeled up in different spots.

    I did have massive headaches for the past couple of days and I am near there also.

    Dear fellow students. My secret dream is going to California, put a smurf hat on my head with little pigeon feathers glued to it here and there, paint my face in blue, and drink a full bottle of Wiskey while exhibiting myself smoking a marijuana cigar on the turret of a fully loaded T-34 tank on Rodeo Drive, striking bodybuilding poses, all this with absolutely no clothes covering my body except my favourite underwear, at the sound of detonating fireworks and military ballads and marches. Shhhhhhh… Hush hush, lads! Don’t tell anyone about this, all right? It’s a secret okay?

      In “Golly-wood,” you would probably not be given a second glance, except your spelling of “favourite” would give you away as a foreigner. :razz:

      • neuroway says:

        Damn! That’s because of the T-34 assault tank, right? Yes, yes, I know it is the weakest point of my plan, I know I should replace it by a trusty limo, but I feel slightly insecure inside these slow and ugly stretched cars, you know? I know limos are trusty. But are they checked by a competent state security authority? Do they have appropriate seatbelts? Are their top adapted to break dancing, or can they collapse after the first dance move? Are their bodies framed to sustain the forces of detonating fireworks? What if they are hit by a falling meteorite? Are they really secure? And what about the chauffeurs? Do they possess all the required permits, insurances and papers delivered by a competent State-Chauffering-Examination-Bureau? Have they been drug and alcohol tested? Who the hell knows? Do they have the adequate sensorimotor coordination to face an emergency and potentially dangerous situation down Rodeo Drive?

        I suppose he’s Canadian. He is a native speaker, uses the British spelling, mixed “American-British” vocabulary (I don’t know how to name it without offending Canadians) and knows French well.

        But what should be the standards for International English (or so-called offshore English) like? This is an American forum so I try to stick to the American norms. On British sites I try to use the British rules. But what to do out of context of any English-speaking countries, when describing things to other non-native speakers? When I discuss e.g. with a Dutchman about e.g. the infrastructure in Germany or France, what terms should I use? Sidewalks or pavements? Railways or railroads? Switches or points (in railroad tracks)? Flyovers or overpasses? Why to use the 12h time format, when the discussants from both countries use the 24h clock? Etc., etc. The problems are breeding like rabbits.

    Dear Marina, please don’t use any more animation. We want to see you. Hearing your narration is always sweet (a blind man can enjoy your lessons), but I don’t understand the whole avatar thing. Anima is so boring! Your cartoon ‘hotforwords investigates’ lead-in to some of your older vids is cute, but this doesn’t do you justice. On the other hand, it is clear from this experiment that you should be doing voice-overs in Disney-type movies! That could really be some fun!

    • Anonymous says:

      I agree, she looks zillions times better as the real person. This animated figure barely resembles the real Marina and looks little bit like a boy. I know they did it for free, but they didn’t do a really good advertisement of themselves that way.

      Plus real Marina’s facial expression and gestures are priceless. Impossible to animate without motion capture.

      • Samuel says:

        Absolutely. Marina as Marina is priceless.

          Maybe we exaggerate the compliments sometimes, but at least our comments counterbalance the comments of Youtube haters. Is this site a kind of mutual admiration society? Perhaps it is, but that’s OK. It’s better to pay compliments than spread hate.

    Marina, nice job on the animation. Do I understand you correctly? Are there really 9,999 other women like you in Russia who want to come to America? I want a nanny! ;)

    I never believed in the rumor that Marina might have been any kind of stripper or pole dancer. I’ve always seen she is a bit “clumsy” when she moves, she simply has not as great sensorimotor coordination as people who were involved in dancing or another similar activity. Her patterns of movement, especially when she started her vlog, resembled rather those of teenage girls, not of the former workers of the adult entertainment industry. In the case of Marina it was her asset, because her very feminine way of dressing came together with the behavior subliminally associated with innocent and young girls, what the viewers liked much.

    On the other hand, Marina is extremely photogenic – she looks good in the photos in any pose she strikes.

    In the very first videos we can notice that Marina was a bit shy.That was also not the personality trait typical of former strippers. She wasn’t good at acting so her behavior seemed to be very authentic. She simply wouldn’t be able to work in such an industry like they tried to accuse her of. We can see in the videos how she was changing and developing through the years. She grew real and strong self-confidence.

    Even if she sometimes acts like a femme fatale, it’s easy to spot this is only a role play when she tries to follow the show convention, but behind the acting we can easily see she is a “girl next door” type of person.

    Coming to America:
    The first of my immigrant ancestors arrived in America in 1639. The trip over was more difficult then, and nobody had dreamed of Hollywood yet.

    One of my distant cousins, Madog “Mad Dog” Owain sailed over from Wales in 1171 and landed in Mobile Bay, Alabama, but that’s another story.

    ***Homework: Accomplishing a dream***

    I got asked that question in a radio interview yesterday morning, about how I compiled my anthology, Wisdom of Our Mothers.

    I Googled writers’ groups around the world, sent out a call for stories about what the writers learned from their mothers, and received several hundred replies, which I narrowed down to 88. I edited, formatted, created a PDF file of it, then got CreateSpace to print it for me on-demand.

    Now I just have to get people to buy it!

    Hi Marina,
    With all this chatter about your legal status in the USA, maybe you could tell us how close you are to becoming a citizen. You must have been here nearly five years now…

    “Через год, когда срок контракта истек, 24-летняя Марина продлила вид на жительство и отправилась покорять Голливуд.”

  98. Anonymous says:

    Hmm. So I’m guessing that Marina had some type of employment visa to enter the USA. Under the terms of her employment, upon the termination of her job, Marina should have left the USA – although perhaps she found another job that was able to sponsor her. If Marina did not get that new job within the proper time period, then she became a de facto visa overstay illegal alien.

    I can see why the now mature (i.e., > 30 y.o.) Marina wants to find an American husband (via the Anastasia agency) so that she can legally stay in the USA.

    • Anonymous says:

      If she was an illegal alien, she wouldn’t be able to travel to Europe and Mexico and be allowed into the USA while returning from the trips. You can see she travels abroad a lot, so she must be in the USA legally. Even people who overstayed their visas several days are not allowed to the States anymore.

      • Anonymous says:

        Since she has traveled out of and returned to the USA, yes, you are correct that she must still be in good immigration status. She must have gotten another job and stayed in status. She probably works officially as a model, leaving herself plenty of time to devote to HotForWords. But officially, until she applies of permanent residence, she will run out of time, be forced to leave the USA, or overstay and become an illegal alien. Perhaps she could use her HotForWords enterprise as a reason to get permanent residence. Perhaps she has already been in the USA a long enough time to be able to apply for permanent residence.

    Marina, I think I like the real you better, even if you can’t fly.

    I just came upon this Web site where it looks like you wrote the page for them. Did you, or did (as the URL implies) they fake it? (All ten words are from existing lessons.)

    Hello Marina, and all my fellow students, how are doing lately? What’s up with you? Such a great animated video you use to tell your coming to America story? You were a Nanny like the comedy on TV, just joking. Was that a satisfying to you to do for a couple of years. The husband, I’m not saying that it’s ok, but it is a very hard thing not to notice your beauty. I greatly enjoyed your tell, from Russia, to San Fransisco, to Hollywood. And I’m grateful for you making the journey, and eventually form this awesome website, virtual classroom kind of I think it as. You are one of the most gifted, and talented, very funny wit, intelligent, caring, sharing, Just an all around very grate person, and you are very attractive, and have much beauty, just can’t miss it, it sticks out like a sore thumb! You are what I call a total package, you got it all girl. Sad that stripper rumor had to start, they should know better, you said you couldn’t dance, and don’t seem to be the type to try it anyhow. I guess that’s a personal choice, and i think you made the right one. How is Gorby doing lately, haven’t seen the little guy as of late, whatever happened to the bunny you had, if you don’t mind me asking, and did you mention something about turtles, if I recall right! Peace to you Marina, Gorby, and your whole family, and I never will forget my family here at Hot For Words, you all have been so great to me, and to many other peoples lives. Thank you. See you soon!

    Good to know your story, but I am hoping there will be a part 2. how you survived between nanny job, and the lessons being profitable would be interesting as well.

      She actually talked about it in several interviews. She had saved some money that allowed her to survive before the online business started to bring in a profits. She probably tried also to involve herself in a side job as a photographic model, as she has shown us many photos from those times.

    Since you have your own wings now, can I have your old private jet???

    Loved the story.
