‘Hoy se bebe!’

Ayera nochi, bo sa kiko mi a bebe? Djus! Ora mi ta den un evento sosial (si mi bai),  bo sa kiko mi ta bebe? Djus tambe. Karnaval, Pasku, aña nobo, i tur sobra momento, mi sa keda bebe djus. Pero awe mi ta bai hasi un eksepshon. Awe mi ke lubida doló i tristesa, pesei awe sí—aparte di hopi awa— lo mi bai bebe djus tambe. Mi no tin bergwensa di bisa ku mi no sa bebe alkohòl—nunka. Pero mi sa mi ta diferente na hopi otro hende, ku pa deseo di pertenesé na e grupo mas grandi, ku orguyo lo bisa ku nan si ta bebe—bebe te bira fuma!

Djaluna anochi tabata basta drùk den kaya, i den riffort mi a mira un grupo di hóben ku tabata konsisti di tres dama i dos kabayero. E damanan tabata tin kada un 2 bòter di serbes den nan man, i nan tabata mustra fuma. E kabayeronan tabata hasi loke nan ke ku nan. Mi no sa kiko nan ta di otro, ni mi no sa si e damanan tabata ke pa e gainan mishi ku nan. Tur loke mi sa, ta ku e promé slòk di alkohòl, e damanan a hasié konsientemente.

Alkohòl un simpel molekül, pero ku efektonan kompleho riba nos seleber i kurpa. Pa kuminsá, alkohòl ta un droga, ku na momentu ku e drenta bo kurpa, e ta puru venenu. Nos kurpa por prosesá solamente un kantidat limitá (20 mililiter) di alkohòl pa ora. Tur loke bo bebe riba esaki, lo bai dirèkt den bo sanger i kuminsá hasi daño na bo kurpa.

Den bo seleber alkohòl tin efektonan kompleho, kual den kuminsamentu ta pone bo sinti bon, redusí strès. Den un ambiente festivo, e ta stimulá euforia. Mas bo bebe, mas bo ta mira ku bo kurpa i mente no por prosesá esaki. Na momentu ku bo ta bou di efekto di alkohòl (‘tipsy’ òf fuma), bo kurpa ta intoksiká!

Ta keda un misterio pa mi si, kon bin nos ta papia di ‘bebement’i alkohòl’ manera ta algu sumamente positivo, heroiko i fasinante e ta. Ta manera kos ku ta un orguyo hende ta sinti pa por bisa, “Ombu, ayera mi a bebe fuma fuma.” Si, mi sa ku e ta algu legal, i sosialmente aseptá. Pió ku sosialmente aseptá, el a bira un ingrediente pa krea ambiente den nos bida sosial. Si bo ta den un grupo di hende ku ta bebe, lo bo no keda aseptá pa e grupo, si abo keda sin bebe. Pues hopi bes hende ta kuminsá bebe—intoksiká nan kurpa—pa komplasé otro hende. Pues pa hende aseptá mi den nan sirkulo, mi mester hode mi kurpa meskos ku nan ta hode di nan. Ta e kaso ku pa hopi hende, alkohòl  bira nan remedi diario pa temporalmente silensiá nan mente un ratu i pa asina nan por sinti bon ku nan mes pa un ratu.

Mi sa tende hende bisa, ku nan gusta e echo ku alkohòl ta pone nan lòs, pa asina nan por hinka nan mes mas den un ambiente. Pero mi ke bo pensa un tiki kiko esaki ta nifiká. Kiko esei ta bisa bo? Ami lo puntra bo mas bien ta ki miedu bo tin ku bo no por ta bo mes, manera bo ke, den ambiente di hende, sin yudansa di un droga? Pasó alkohòl ta un droga ku ta lansa GABA, Glutamate, i Opiods den bo seleber, kual ta un tim di neurokímiko ku segun tempu lo krea un mònster den bo kurpa ku aweró lo bo no sa kon pa libra di dje. Si, mi sa—‘Hoy se bebe!’ Pero defakto, no ta nada ‘great’, nada saludabel, i nada ehemplar den e kos ei!


Den mi bukinan ‘Kibra Hacha‘ i ‘Niun Pátaka‘ mi a papia mas di e efektonan di alkohòl i tokante e manera kon nos ta uza e supstansianan aki pa dil ku nos emoshonnan i dikon nos tin miedu di enfrentánan na un manera sobrio!

Awor mi tin problema ku Gobièrnu, Polis i tambe Ministerio Públiko.

Promé ku tur kos, mi ke bisa ku mi tin mas miedu di Bankonan, Gobièrnu, Polis i Ministerio Públiko, ku mi tin miedu di un atrakadó. Ami por suerte, te ainda mi no a yega di wòrdu atraká nunka. Te ainda, nunka un kriminal a yega di kita algu di sumo balor fo’i (‘afkloppen’). Lamentablemente mi no por bisa meskos di banko, gobièrnu, polis ni Ministerio Públiko.

Here is why your friend’s travel pictures irritate you!

Let’s be honest, we know how people want us to feel happy for their success, and most of us genuinely do. But we also can’t help to feel a little envy or jealousy too, especially when we think that everybody else around us is doing better than us. The reason we feel this is because aside from enjoying deep social connections with our peers, we are quite socially competitive too. We like to know how we are doing in life compared to others and if you are honest you will accept that we like to show off to some extent too. When we see others “showing off”, when we have nothing to brag about, we feel a little bit envious!

Ku un amigu manera MCB, mi no mester di enemigu!

Hopi hende ta kategorisá kosnan ku mi skibi riba mi página komo ‘fake’. En realidat no ta asina. De bes en kuando, mi sa haña ideanan pa krea un historia rondó di akontesimentunan ku a sosodé den komunidat òf ku mi persona. E ideanan aki ta kai mas bien bou di sátira. Ta ideanan ku mayoria bia ta basá riba algu ku a sosodé di bèrdat, i sea mi a pone algu aserka pa eksager’é òf pa dòrn’é ku un tiki ‘dark humor’. Ta ami su stail. Bo no mester gusta ni aprobá esei.

Sátira pa esnan ku no sa, ta e uzo di humor, ironia òf eksagerashon pa ekspresá un pensamentu. Tin hende ta hasié pa ridikulisá òf krítika un persona òf instansia. Partikularmente polítikonan ta resultá víktima di sátira pa motibu di nan komportashon hipókrita.     

Na Kòrsou aki, ta parse mi ku nos no konosé esaki, i pa motibu di flohera i ignoransia, hopi hende ta sea tuma e sátira komo e realidat, òf (pa nan ta ‘safe’) nan ta kere ku tur kos ku mi skibi ta falsu, pa motibu ku pa nan, e ta difísil pa diferenshá kiko ta real for di kiko no. Esaki ta algu ku ami lo tin ku bai kambia, pa evita konfushon.

Loke mi ta bai skibi aki, mi por bisa bo ku e no ta kai bou di ni ‘fake news’ ni sátiro. Mi ta bai konta presis loke a sosodé, na e manera ku ami a eksperensi’é.

Four questions that will help you find your purpose in life!

My psychologist once told me the reason most people come in for therapy is that they don’t know what the fuck they want. (He said “fuck”, not me.) That might be true because living life without a purpose might make you feel kind of blue, therefore feeling pretty unhappy. Luckily for you, there is something that can help.

Here’s the reason why men hate using condoms!

First of all, having this discussion with women is pointless. I will more likely win an argument with my dog about him peeing on my car tires than convincing women why wearing condoms for men are effective but pretty undesirable.

This is how Chinese men are the simple solution to our “lack of men” problem!

The world’s population has been over seven billion people for seven years already, which according to many people—and I 100% agree with them— is more than what the planet can sustain. China alone is putting a lot more pressure on that. China’s population is at almost 1.5 billion people. This overpopulation caused them to apply a ‘one child per family’ policy which was introduced in 1979. Families who fail to comply with this rule would face huge fines and have to undergo abortions. Sterilization was also forced on the Chinese people.

I’m sorry but I have to confess this to you.

You know, I had no idea I was subscribed to so many websites. I’ve come to realize this when I was continuously receiving e-mails about a so called ‘Privacy Policy and Data Protection update’. For the past few days many companies have been telling me that they have updated their privacy policies. That’s because the European Union recently passed a new law about privacy and data protection that affects all companies operating in the European Zone. It’s called the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation, effective as of May 25, 2018), which contains significant changes in data protection regulation in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA), and it replaces the former legal framework Data Protective Directive. This is not the confession, but here it comes.

The voice behind the ‘Yanny or Laurel’ debate finally reveals what he actually said!

It became such a heated debate on Internet, Television, Radio shows, and pretty much all other media channels. It seemed to me like another “what color is the dress?” viral thingie. When I heard the clip I clearly heard what the voice said, but many people heard something completely different which led me to believe that many people have a hearing problem.

So what is the voice really saying?
Actor Jay Aubrey Jones told the NBC in an interview that he barely recognized his own voice in the recording. “I’m completely and utterly floored by this, I’m really amused…every so often I’m laughing”, he said.

Listen to the clip one more time before we reveal the truth…listen to it carefully:

What Jones actually said was—hold tight, for you’re not going to believe this—‘Hink’é aden’, which is my latest book that’s coming out this Sunday May 27th. For only 50 bucks you can get yours. Just come by at Hotel Trupial Inn between 2 and 5 PM and I’ll give you the best humor book ever written!

I know, I was just as shocked by you to realize that my book’s name has been going around all over the internet for the past few days. I just realized that I’m famous. I am so going to be a millionaire. After I cash in all my money I’m going to buy a big house on a deserted island far away from everyone, four sport cars and helicopter.

Okay, let me come back to earth…..555

What the actor Jay Aubrey said during the clip, and Jones confirmed this during the interview, was the word “Laurel”. He explained that the clip was from a 10 year old recording for Vocabulary.com which is a website to help students in learning new words. I don’t know why they should learn the word “Laurel”, or who the hell is Laurel, but that’s how it is.

Experts explain that people may hear two different words due to the frequency of the sound which is captured differently by our brains. Even President of the United States was caught up in this debate. What a way to waste presidential time, isn’t it. I wonder if he would grab Laurel by the pussy too if he knew her. Hmmm

Anyway, there you have it. Those who were convinced that the word was Yannie, y’all should change your brain frequency. It’s capturing the wrong signals. LOL

But hey, ‘Hink’é aden’ (Put it in) is still pretty close to Laurel too, so…yeah. I’m going with ‘HInk’é aden.
