@Anti-Matter No, she said "Voilà!". It's French. I can understand why you think it was Walaa, because it does sound like that, but it's not how you write it. So, there you go: you learned something new. You're welcome.

@rjejr " Do you know WHY American college students visited Amsterdam in the 90's? "
The universal appeal of speed skating?

@JackEatsSparrows Boxy was best. At least there was some character to it versus the "we've carefully designed this to not have any shape or recognizable feature" of pretty much all design and architecture of the 21st century.

Plus they were made of metal back then. Metal is better than plastic.

@ThanosReXXX Heck mine was only bruised, not broken (I think...never got it checked, but since the pain wasn't as excruciating, I presume,) and it took about 2 months. And really 10 months or so before applying pressure in the wrong spot didn't twinge a bit.

Hey, at least I can lay on the floor at all

Guess who just narrowly avoided being in the middle of a 4 car pile up?

Got a feeling I wouldn't have walked away from that one without some bad injuries.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

@ThanosReXXX I'm not sure sarcasm actually translates to Asia well. Not sure about @anti-matter in Indonesia, but in Japan, sarcasm/irony as a concept doesn't really exist. There's a word for it. They're aware of it as a concept. But they don't really have it, don't really use it, and don't really get it when used. It's just contextually non-existent there. And it would get pretty blank stares if used. I believe the same is true of China.

Of course I'm sarcastic as heck so that's a bad time....

@NEStalgia I loved my 2000 Cherokee because it was a boxy tank. My current '98 Dakota is great, but I'd love an old F-100 or Chevy Cheyenne

To be fair saying "That's a cautionary tale" when being shown a picture the winner of a big beauty pageant is kind of ironic. It's totally fitting to remind the person she won the constest. Sarcasm or not.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Delibheel Yah, I meant the humorous picture of the gentlefolk showing how large the hands on her waist was in comparison. As in, be cautious not to squeeze tightly.
Do beauty pageants still have all the other scoring categories besides beauty? or is that just those 'Miss' pageants.

I don’t really know much about beauty pageants. I think the stereotype is that they have talent shows.

I’m a father of 4 and I would never want anyone one of my children watching these shows especially my daughters.

@NEStalgia There isn't much difference between a broken or a bruised rib, pain-wise. Except of course if the broken rib went inside and is poking into your lung. Mine is almost completely broken, but still hanging on some filaments of muscle, tissue or whatever, so that and the other ribs are more or less holding it in place, for now. So, provided I don't get smashed into something else before it heals, I'm good.

As for our Asian friend and the concept of sarcasm: in his case, it's more than just that, of course. Besides his not quite perfect English language skills (which in and of itself already make word jokes all but impossible), he of course also has to deal with his autism, and that's already a big deal having to cope with in your own language, let alone trying to understand cryptic and/or sarcastic remarks in another language...

@ReaderRagfihs Well, I guess that in that case, you might just have potentially escaped also having a broken rib or two, so must have been an angel on your shoulder...

@Delibheel I interpreted the cautionary tale bit more as in: "wow, that girl is WAY too skinny", and in fact she is. It's no small wonder that a lot of people get into trouble with their own weight, because they think that they should also have a "perfect" fashion model body...

Yes. That’s part of the irony.

“She is too skinny, that’s not healthy” -> “she actually won the beauty contest”.

A motive of concern becomes a desirable trait in the limited scope of the story.
