Hola,



Hope this is of use:

Take good care and HAPPY FRIDAY



JL



Use with care. Translation (English structure) is mediocre but names of the screws, bolts, etc. seem OK.

¡Gracias, JL! Sep 27, 2002

El sitio es muy útil.

Incluso, encontré el tornillo que me faltaba (en mi cabeza). Era un tornillo \'Alien\'.

Saludos.

Just a pun about having a screw loose and having an \'Alien\' monster inside one\'s head.



BTW: In Argentina is quite usual to make puns, jokes, sarcastic remarks, etc. very seriously, without any emphasis or laughing. (And in the case of written jokes, omitting any smiling \'emoticon\'). I love that style. Is it the same in other countries? I would like to know it.



Congratulations in your day! You have a long and impressive career. All you miss is to speak \'Saturnian\' or something like that ...

Yes, I realized that eventually Sep 30, 2002

I originally wrote in more detail about Allen screws and keys, but then I looked at your posting again and saw you had said \"en la cabeza\", so I realized it must be a joke. I then tried to delete the whole thing but the heading somehow got left behind.



This style of humour, which we call \"dead-pan\", is very common in English too and I like it very much myself. You have to be careful how you use it on this site, though, because people might take it seriously and be offended by it.



No, I don\'t speak Saturnian, but your comment reminds me of a poem I wrote when I was at BBC Monitoring. A guy named Andrew Struve, as an excuse for a party, proclaimed November 8th (the day after the anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution in the Soviet Union, an occasion when we worked very hard) to be International Monitors\' Day. I wrote a lyric in Russian to the tune of the Soviet National Anthem, and then produced an English version, as follows:



ANTHEM FOR INTERNATIONAL MONITORS’ DAY



A union of linguists extremely distinguished

Was built by our glorious leader, John Rae.

Sing loud acclamation for Struve’s creation,

The Great International Monitors’ Day!

We’ll provide you a translation,

However difficult it be,

From Italian, Romanian, from French or Albanian,

From Serbo-Croat or from Russian,

Lunese, Venusian or Martian,

Such keen and industrious people are we!

Jack Doughty 1975.
