Pio tico is sweet and beautiful.


Iversen's summary of June wrote:
Jar-Ptitsa (DU): suggests that Fasulye should find an ergotherapeut, that can suggest some suitable job alternatives. Sometbody somewhere in an unknown place has mentioned the menial job of "vietsbode" (bike courier or messenger), but for Fasulye it might be better to become a language teacher - teachers can move around as much as they wish while teaching. Btw. the spellingchecker doesn't accept "vietsbode".

Fasulye (DU): Is seriously thinking over the suggestion to become a language teacher, but you need a diploma for that. The word "Vietsbode" doesn't exist, - use "bote" or "kourier" (with a 'k' ?)


it's not somewhere in an unkown place who mentioned "vietsbode" but it was Fasule (but she had editted it v-->f :



edit : deleted the screenshot

OK, I'll change the information about the biking maniac profession right away, - and here is a toucan called 'Pio tico' in Central America where it lives. But the photo is from Amnéville Aquarium in France:

Here is a Youtube clip with some "bike couriers", and here a whole Wikipedia article about that noble profession.


IT: Questo toucano e un uccello bellissimo!!! Probabilmente Iversen ha visto questo ucello nella natura esotica o nel zoo. Grazie per gli infomazioni dei corrieri della bicicletta. Vorrei informarmi...qui nel log. Oggi ho ricevuto il mio licienziamento, por eso il mio lavoro finira fra due settimani. Vorrei parlare con l'ufficio del lavoro dei miei problemi della salute per poter cercare qualcosa di differente di un "lavoro sedante" come nel callcenter. Si verra...

Quote from Wikipedia:

The job is poorly paid relative to the risk and effort required. In 2002, a Harvard Medical School study of injury rates amongst Boston bicycle messengers determined that the rate of injury requiring time off work amongst the sample group was more than 13 times the U.S. average, and more than three times higher than the next highest group, workers in the meat-packing industry.[17] At least one bicycle messenger is killed while working every year in the U.S.[18][19][20] Eight bicycle messengers are known to have been killed while working in London between 1989 and 2003.[21] Because payment is made at piece rates, and cycle couriers often fail to file accurate tax returns, it is hard to get reliable figures for messenger income. A study published in 2006 stated that the average daily wage of London bicycle messengers was £65 a day, and that of bicycle messenger in Cardiff was £45.[22] The UK legal minimum wage at that time was £5.52 an hour.[23]

Iversen, as I see, these are not really good working conditions. Low payment and high risk.

Fasulye,

you better think about a different job. bicycle messenger's too dangerous, and anyway you're too old: those people are about 25 and they're men. I wanted to find my list for give some suggestions, but I've lost it, unfortunately.

Maybe you can work in a garden centre? It would be very nice i think. have you hayfever? This would be a problem with all the flowers. But, language teacher's the best for you, in my opinion, because you love languages, know them, and you have some students already.

I would like selling goods in a shop, if I can identify myself with the merchandise. Unfortunately bookshops(!!!) only hire people with a professional qualification as "Buchhändler". What a pity.

PORT: Tenho visto tucanes ao vivo na America Central e no Parque Nacional de Iguaçú, mas o pássaro na foto ao lado é uma seriema. Tem um excelente Parque das Aves perto da entrada do Parque Nacional, e na cidade de Foz de Iguaçú tem um Jardim Zoológico mais modesto. A seriema da foto vivía no zoológico de Foz quando eu visitei as cataratas no ano 2002. Houve efectivamente quatro seriemas numa gaiola, e quando fui olhar para eles, uma delas correu á grada para cravar-me. Outra num ramo proferé isto: "Ah .. AH .. AHH .. AAAaaaaaaAAAAAHHHHHHH". Depois silencio, enquanto julgava o efeito. E novamente: "Ah .. AH .. AHH .. ARHH... AAAaaaaaaAAAAAHHHRRHHHH". Então uma das outras sentiu que ele tambem dever interferir: "Ah .. AH .. AHH .. AAAaaaaaa-AAAAA-HHHHHHHHH-AH-AH". A terça: "Aha .. AHa .. AHHaHAA .. AAAaaaaaa-AAAAA-HHHHHHHHH-AH-AH". A quarta - sentada no fundo da gaiola e probablement a mais baixa na hierarquia, parecia agora que de tambem querer dizer alguma coisa. Foi "Ah .. AH .. AHH .. AAAaaaaaaAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH-AH-AH HHHH". As outras tres fitarão-a - já foi suficiente quando a clase baixa também interferiu! E assim terminou o concerto.



GER: Arme Fasulye, jetzt wieder auf Stellungssuche..

Dear Jar-Ptitsa: because of the very broad screendump with Fasulye's original words this whole page has become almost impossible to read. Could you please either delete or make that graphic smaller?

-------

I visited the Foz de Iguaçu Zoo in 2002, and there I saw a cage with four seriemas (a distant relative of storks). When I got closer to the cage one of the birds immediately ran towards me to have a closer look, and in the same another - who was sitting on a branch - started to scream. And seriemas can really scream! The rest of the text just describes how they continued to scream until even the one at the bottom of the pecking order joined in, - then it distinctly looked as if the other three unanimously decided that that the concert had to stop.

Von der Ausbildung „Buchhändler“ habe ich nie gehört; würde es ein schweres Studium sein? Ich erinnere mich jetzt, dass Bibliothekmitarbeiterin auf meiner Liste stand, aber es klingt langweilig, oder? Es gab viele anderen, keine die ein Uni Studium braucht.

Wow!!! deine Beschreibung ist aber GANZ toll!!!!!! hahahaha!!! ☺ Arme Vögel, in einem Käfig zu wohnen ☹ Das mögen Vögel meistens nicht, oder vielleicht war’s sehr geräumig.
