Here again

Well, here again. Today i ride again my bike after few years…
But… these forums changed too much! Too much persons... Times before these forums look like a “café”. Now it is like a football stadium: Too much noise, problems with the big fat boy that sat beside you... Problems with the seat numbers… Your friends lose in the crowd…
Where is Gardner? Where is every body?
Well, I’m back (ac/dc: Back in black).
You open to much forums but I don’t see anyone in Spanish or Spanglish. What a pity.

Hello gringos

Hola Amigo.....I just read through your 2002 threads.....muy bien.....I particularly liked the pic of your BikeForums rock art.....Wonder if it's still there?.....What will an archaeologist in 2505 think of it?....muy strange....


In 2002 you thought your government would change....What's it like now?....Has it drifted left-ward like some other South American countries?....Here in the US, the mass-media mostly only mentions other countries when we get into a war with them....


Hasta la vista....baby!.....I mean.....Amigo....

translation: Wassup, dawg? I speak Spanish. I'm a drunk hoodlum from North Carolina, and I travel by bike everyday. F***it!

If the stones are still there (and i doubt it) in 2505 an archeologist could build the theory that in one time an itelligent tribe lived in South America circa XXI century.
JAJAJAJAJAJAJA (HAHAHAHAHA)

“drifted - leftward”: don’t make me laugh, they (the latinos politicians) sing by leftward, but play by rightward. You know… they talks about the poor people, but they live in big mansions. They wanna die for the poor people but they don’t wanna live with them.

“countries in war”: you are reading too much newspapers. (mmmmmmmmmmm Talking seriously: like it to us or not, it is something that we must eradicate by all together (and when i said all, i mean all, not only USA, not only EUROPE). Not only the “richest” but the “poorest” too.

Hasta la vista viejo, que todo marche sobre ruedas.

Jack, buena onda viejo, yo ando en una GT fs, es bueno saber que alguien habla tu idioma. Un día fui a New York y en el aeropuerto, en el autobus, en el hotel, en las calles, todos hablaban español, entonces me acerqué a una empleada del hotel, una chica alta y rubia y le dije: I come from Argentina and i want practice my english... y la chica me miró se sonrió y me dijo en español "Bienvenido a la tierra del latino"

Jack, good wave man, i ride a GT fs, it is good know that others speak your own language. One day i go to New York, in the airport, in the bus, in the hotel, in the streets, everybody talked spanish, then i approached to a blond woman that worked in the hotel, and i said to her: I come from Argentina to practice my english... the woman smile and said in spanish: "welcome to latino's land"

amigo, you should change your user title from Senior Member to Señor Member!

Concuerdo con usted, viejo. Español es el único idioma que es divertido para hablar.
- especialmente cuándo borracho.

I agree with you, man. Spanish is the only language which is fun to speak.
- especially when drunk.

As with any slightly derogatory word, it can also be used a term of endearment.

Sr. Chicharrón. soy de Argentina, de la povincia de Jujuy, de la ciudad de San Salvador de Jujuy. Soltero y sin apuro che. He tenido algunos contactos con gente de México, hace poco me hice madar via México unos libros que necesitaba, como siempre los mexicanos estuvieron muy atentos y amables, es gente muy cordial y querida por acá. (Salvo cuando nos ganan partidos de futbol) (chiste).
Tengo ganas de hacer un viaje en mi bica o bici por lo que retomé la bicicleta, vamos a ver si para el invierno argentino (mes de julio) estoy en forma.
Que hacen Ustedes con sus bicis ¿Mountain Bike?
Saludos ¡Viva México!

Ofofby i don't know who told you that "gringo" is a derogative word, on the contrary. We say "gringo" to the people that we appreciate, to the people we don't aprpeciate we have other words.

MERTON
"Gringo" means: tall blond man who don't speak spanish.

Amigo, bienvenido. Hablo un poco de espanol. He estudiado espanol en espana, pero quiero viajar a Argentina. Uno de mis profesores de los anos pasados viajaba a Argentina muchas veces y nos dijeron muchas cuentas de su pais.

Soy un alumno y vivo en Maryland, EEUU, muy cerca de Washington, DC. ?Esta bien el ciclismo en Argentina? ?Argentina tiene montanas en el oeste, verdad? ?Hay muchas ciclistas en Argentina? Lo siento, pero mi computadora no me permite usar puntuacio'n correcta- acentos y tildes.

About some of the linguistics:
Words like cabr*n are considered heavy language by most Spanish speakers. If I were to say it to a stranger or as an insult, it would not be taken lightly; however, it can be used as asign of affection among friends in sort of a buddy-buddy joking around sense.

It also depends on the localities as the language is different in every country. I know that in Argentina they have a number of linguistic traditions, that while not endorsed exactly by the Real Academia Española de la Lengua, are considered a-OK and used all the time. I've talked with teachers and been told that in Mexico the word pendejo can be, and commonly is, used as a word of endearment. The literal meaning of pendejo is pubic hair. Just the intricacies of the language. Spanish is a beautiful and very useful language and definitely something that I would recommend studying.
