Station-2

there’s something about even’s little nod in this scene 

because even knows. he’s not oblivious, he notices the way isak reacts to his presence, to him. he’s been noticing him for weeks, weeks before they first met. he saw the way isak was when he came over to his place the previous week, he saw the look in his eyes, the light in his eyes, he saw the way he smiled and laughed, he noticed the changes in his voice. he probably memorized his facial expressions and the things he said last friday. kept replaying them in his mind every single day, in class, before going to bed, when he was with other people 

earlier in that episode, when he came to give isak his snapback, in a matter of seconds, he understood that isak hadn’t told his friends he had gone to his place, he understood that he didn’t want them to know. because he sees and understands. he remembered the cardamom on the cheese toasties five weeks later, how they were sitting on the floor of his room as they ate them, he remembered isak saying he had a drop of water in his throat, he remembered isak talking about parallel universes. because he pays such close attention to isak and the way he looks and moves and speaks and all the things he says

do you think that even, who saw this boy on the first day of school, who was probably looking forward to seeing him even when it was just at school, in public, in rooms and hallways with other students, would not notice how isak was acting? notice the way he’s been looking at him the moment he showed up at his place for the pregame? the way he starred at him when he kissed sonja and looked at him straight in the eyes? how tensed he was as he told him about sonja and how they’d been together for years? the intonation of his voice as he said his okay’s (been together since we were 15. okay. can’t dump her. okay). do you think that even who’s been desperately trying to spend time alone with this boy he was falling for would not notice the smile that spread all over isak’s face when he realized that even was messing with him, the smile he was trying to stop it, in vain? do you think he would not sense his attraction to him? the vulnerability?

of course even notices. and since he came to see isak in his kitchen, he’s only been kidding, pretending not to be serious. but with that little nod, he grows more serious. with that little nod, it’s like he’s saying i see you, i see it, i’ve seen you for a while. it’s reassuring. it’s okay. it’s understanding. i know, isak. i know. me too

“this guy…” x  x

The Incan relay system could transport news 150 miles per day. The runners, stationed every 2 miles, would run at top speeds and blow a conch shell to tell the next runner they were arriving. The next runner would fall into step beside them, hear and memorize the message, and then run at top speed to the next messenger. The system was so fast they could carry fresh fish from the Pacific Ocean to the Incan king in the Andes valley of Cuzco – without the fish spoiling.

A little series of photos showing Tiangong 2, the Chinese space station. It is one of two space stations currently in space, the other being the ISS.
It had it’s first astronaut visit last month but is currently unmanned.

Looking south of the Freeman Street Station on the Nos. 2 and 5 Lines.

Polish swear words #1

See the introduction to Polish swear words HERE

PIERDOLIĆ (impf.)

1. Pierdolić + dative (komu? czemu?) - to talk to sb/sth in an annoying way
Seba pierdolił Danielowi o bójce przy komisariacie.
Seba was talking to Daniel about the brawl near the police station.

2. Pierdolić + accusative (kogo?) - to fuck sb; to have sex with sb

Staszek has been fucking boss’ wife for half a year, can you imagine that?

3. Pierdolić + accusative (co?) - to talk bullshit
Usually this phrase is connected with words głupoty, farmazony, trzy po trzy (all of them mean bullshit)
Marta pierdoli farmazony, nie mogę z nią wytrzymać!
Marta is talking bullshit, I can’t stand her!

4. Pierdolić + accusative (co?) - to screw sth up
Graża pierdoli każde zadanie. Nie możecie na niej polegać!
Graża screws up every task. You can’t rely on her!

5. Pierdolić + accusative (kogo? co?) - to fuck sth (not to care about sth anymore); to ignore sb
Pierdolę ten esej, później go napiszę.
Fuck this essay, I’ll write it later.

6. Pierdolić + accusative (o co?) - to hit on sth

Stop hitting on the wall with a hammer!

7. Pierdolić + instrumental (czym?) - to hit continuously with sth

8. Pierdolić + locative (o kim? o czym?) - to talk about sb/sth in an annoying way
Możesz przestać pierdolić o swoim byłym?
Can you stop talking about your ex?

You can also use pharses:

  • Pierdolisz? / No nie pierdol! - What are you talking about? (sth shocking)
  • Pierdolę to! - I don’t care anymore! I give up! (typical “fuck this, fuck that”)
  • Ja pierdolę! - Oh fuck!
  • Weź nie pierdol! - Stop talking bullshit!
  • Pierdolenie o Chopinie / Szopenie - bull shitting (literally: annoying talking about Chopin)
  • Pierdolenie kotka za pomocą / przy pomocy młotka - doing sth for a very long time; doing sth pointless (literally: hitting a kitten with a hammer)

Notes:
If you see for instance “accusative (kogo?)” and there is no question for inanimate / animate objects, don’t think that’s a mistake - we simply don’t use it (or we use it very, very rarely) in some phrases. Look at point nr 2 and ask yourself if you want to have a sex with a kettle or with a living person.
