And Also, For Why Would You Want To Jump Over A Shark?

Gunther is confused:

This reminds me of an aquaintance telling about the Russian Soviet exchange student who they hosted in the late 1980s….her husband was trying to explain the whys, hows, and wherefores of baseball, only to discover it’s a lot more complicated than we give credit for when you’re trying to explain it to someone who knows absolutely nothing about it.

    I went out with a lovely young woman from Krakow for a year and a half, and developed a knack for the quick synopsis.

    Football- you have four chances to move the ball about ten meters- if you succeed, you get four more chances. If you move the ball about 100 meters, you score.

    Baseball- you hit the ball, and have to move to the “base” before it is stopped by the opposition. The other players move with you.

    Nothing is that complicated when you break it down.

      Can you do that for lacrosse penalties? Because I’m lost out here in the ‘burbs watching these boys whack each other with sticks.

    Dude’s mixing his idioms. He clearly needs a nap. A sense of humor might help, too.

      He’s a GERMAN, FFS. They don’t really DO humor. At least not the kind that anyone else gets.

      That to me is the funniest thing about it…it starts with him telling someone he wants to make “good techno music” which is, let’s face it, usually if not always an oxymoron, and the dude responds – I’m guessing sarcastically – with “how hard could that be?”
