So I was on the bus going home from work the other day, and overheard these 2 college-age girls behind me talking about Android & iPhone.
The dialogue went something like this:
girl 1: I think I’ve decided I’m gonna get an Android instead of an iPhone
girl 2: yeah? why?
girl 1: well it can do multitasking thingy
girl 2: I thought iPhone does that too?
(at this point I was thinking, wow, that’s pretty geekily specific for girls’ talk)
girl 1: well, sorta. Android’s kinda like girls’ multitasking. You know, it’s a real thing. iPhone is kinda like guys’ multitasking. It looks like it, but not really… you know what I mean?
girl 2: gotcha.
Whoa! I was like, wha…???
I don’t know if I should be more impressed with their geeky heads, or if I should be offended because I’m a guy? I… yeah… hmm…
So I’ve been following the news on how that volcano eruption in Iceland has clearly affected many travelers. Well, partly due to a selfish reason because my wife and I are planning to go to England next May.
Now I do realize this is a serious matter, but I can’t help but notice the volcano’s name: Eyjafjallajokull. Try say that 10 times really fast! I seriously feel bad for all those reporters (especially those from outside Europe) trying to pronounce that in front of the camera. Anyway, if that’s not challenging enough for you to utter, consider the following real places. No, I’m not kidding:
Have a great Friday!
