Нахуй ипотеку

Kyle MacDonald made his first trade, a red paper clip for a fish-shaped pen, on July 14, 2005. He reached his goal of trading up to a house with the fourteenth transaction, trading a movie role for a house. This is the list of all transactions MacDonald made:


  1. On July 14, 2005, he went to Vancouver and traded the paperclip for a fish-shaped pen.

  2. He then traded the pen the same day for a hand-sculpted doorknob from Seattle, Washington, which he nicknamed "Knob-T".

  3. On July 25, 2005, he travelled to Amherst, Massachusetts, with a friend to trade Knob-T for a Coleman camp stove (with fuel).

  4. On September 24, 2005, he went to California, and traded the camp stove for a Honda generator.

  5. On November 16, 2005, he made a second (and successful) attempt (after having the generator confiscated by the New York City Fire Department) in Maspeth, Queens, to trade the generator for an "instant party": an empty keg, an IOU for filling the keg with the beer of the holder's choice, and a neon Budweiser sign.

  6. On December 8, 2005, he traded the "instant party" to Quebec comedian and radio personality Michel Barrette for one Ski-doo snowmobile.

  7. Within a week of that, he traded the snowmobile for a two-person trip to Yahk, British Columbia, in February 2006.

  8. On or about January 7, 2006, he traded the second spot on the Yahk trip for a cube van.

  9. On or about February 22, 2006, he traded the cube van for a recording contract with Metalworks in Mississauga, Ontario.

  10. On or about April 11, 2006, he traded the recording contract to Jody Gnant for a year's rent in Phoenix, Arizona.

  11. On or about April 26, 2006, he traded the one year's rent in Phoenix, Arizona, for one afternoon with Alice Cooper.

  12. On or about May 26, 2006, he traded the one afternoon with Alice Cooper for a KISS motorized snow globe.

  13. On or about June 2, 2006, he traded the KISS motorized snow globe to Corbin Bernsen for a role in the film Donna on Demand.[3]

  14. On or about July 5, 2006, he traded the movie role for a two-story farmhouse in Kipling, Saskatchewan.

Запах дождя

Ребята языковеды! А есть ли аналог слову, описанному ниже, но в русском языке? Хорошее ведь слово, а!

Petrichor (pronounced /ˈpɛtrɨkər/; from Greek petra "stone" + ichor the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology) is the name of the scent of rain on dry earth.

The term was coined in 1964 by two Australian researchers, Bear and Thomas, for an article in the journal Nature. In the article, the authors describe how the smell derives from an oil exuded by certain plants during dry periods, whereupon it is absorbed by clay-based soils and rocks. During rain, the oil is released into the air along with another compound, geosmin, producing the distinctive scent. In a follow-up paper, Bear and Thomas (1965) showed that the oil retards seed germination and early plant growth.

Голландская духовка

Голландская духовка (жаргон) - термин означающий действие, заключающееся в натягивании одеяла на чью-либо голову, сопровождающееся выделением большого количества пищеварительных газов. Как следствие, находящийся под одеялом чувствует острый запах. Может быть совершено как преднамеренно, так и случайно.

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

A dutch oven is a slang term for pulling a cover over someone's head while in bed and flatulating, thereby creating an area of foul-odored air in an enclosed space that must be inhaled. This is done as a prank or by accident to one's sleeping partner.
A connection between relationships and performing a Dutch oven has been discussed in two undergraduate student newspaper articles and in actress Diane Farr's relationships/humor book The Girl Code.
The book The Alphabet of Manliness discusses the Dutch oven and a phenomenon it refers to as the "Dutch oven surprise", that "happens if you force it too hard". The Illustrated Dictionary of Sex refers to this as a Dutch treat.

Расширяем лексикон

Люблю пошариццо но всяким словарям/энциклопедиям.

Mamihlapinatapai (иногда пишут mamihlapinatapei) — слово из яганского языка Племя Яган, (Огненная Земля), указано в книге рекордов Гиннесса в качестве «наиболее сжатого слова» и считается одним из самых трудных для перевода слов. Оно означает «Взгляд между двумя людьми, в котором выражается желание каждого в том, что другой станет инициатором того, чего хотят оба, но ни один не хочет быть первым».
Слово состоит из рефлексивного / пассивного префикса ма-(MAM-перед гласным), корень ihlapi (произносится [iɬapi]), что значит быть в недоумении, как то, что делать дальше, то stative суффикса-н, достижение Суффикс-ate, и двойной суффикс-apai, который в составе с рефлексивным mam- есть взаимные чувства.
