Thanks!

Since I am on vacation right now and I don’t have much time for my blog, I thought this would be the right moment to post this. This video was a project that I began while I still was in the US but I never got to finish it because I had some issues with it… Anyway here it is for everybody who made this past year such a blast!

PS. I made this with a wall, a lot of post-it stickers, a digital camera and finally my MacBook to put all the pictures into a video…

10 stupid questions about the USA

homer

Okay, I promised an here it is. A list with 10 really stupid questions about the United States and my 100% ironic and sarcastic answer (Usually I told them how it really is afterwards ;) ).

1. Are all Americans fat?

Yes! Most people are like elephants.

2. Do Americans usually eat McDonalds?

Yes, they do. McDonald’s is probably the most important food in the United States.

3. Is an American Family like the Simpsons?

Exactly, they are all yellow and live in purple houses.

4. How many times did you actually go to McDonald’s?

For times a day: Breakfast, lunch, dinner and at Midnight cause I couldn’t wait till the next morning.

5. Is George W. Bush still President of the US?

No, not any more. Now is wife Laura Bush is the first female President.

6. Do the Americans always pray before they start school?

No, they just say the Pledge Allegiance. This because they like their flag so much.

7. Is it true that an average American watches about 10 hours TV a day?

Every person has their own little portable TV, so whenever they are bored, they can watch TV.

8. Do all African American play Basketball.

Of course. They are born with a Basketball.

9. Do all people in the States like Obama.

Yes, especially the ones who live in Texas.

10. Do all American speak English?

Do all Swiss people speak Swiss?
Again tell me your favorite and more if someone else asked you a stupid question about the States. ;)
PS. My next list will probably be about the stupid question you guys asked me during my year.

Teacher Quote of the Day: Americans Are Hypocrites??

Today in my English class for some reason we got to the subject how to say “I am going to the bathroom”. A friend of mine said he would say “I am going to take a number 2″ my teacher said it wouldn’t be very polite and “I am going on the toilet” would be to more proper way to say it. After that I shared a story: Once I asked an old lady where the toilet was. She totally shocked answered, that a young polite boy never ever asks for the toilet, he would ask for the bath- or restroom. After telling this, my teacher threw his hands in the air and says:

“All Americans are hypocrites!”

and he added America makes movies like American Pie but don’t say toilet. How ironic! =D You need to understand the sarcasm and irony of my teacher at this point. So don’t feel to offended. I would call it cultural difference ;)

PS: Let me know how you would say “I am going to the bathroom”! :)
