Wink The you know ;) thread

Time for a new thread...

And no, it's not about what some might think , sorry!



Considering Kim's interviews, and especially her latest one, I thought it might be a good idea to dedicate a thread with a huge: to Kim's particular interview style, you know.


So, let's see what we can collect in here for this year.

I'll give it a little kick off :


Kim's "record" in IW 05:

- QF interview: at least about 40 This might just be her best achievement so far. (Anyone who could find better in Kim's IW interviews so far?)

- 4th round interview: I thought to have seen something like 20...

- Please complete

Who of our calculus wizards or anyone looking for a new hobby is willing to have a good look into this you know and report the findings in here?


in advance! I think it will be a lot of

Ah hah, that's where it came from! The only place I ever heard it before was from one of the characters in "The Vicar of Dibley" which is a British comedy series starring Dawn French (probably a lot of you dont know it!).

I have the bad habit of saying no, no... or yes, yes...

also quite typical for Flemish people, I've been told.

I bet you use it a lot when someone asks you if you want another of those luscious Belgian beers: "no, no, oh go on then, who am I kidding!, YES, YES!"

you know me

actually, seriously, I'm not going "no, yes,..." it's "no, no" OR "yes, yes"... I was told one day that it's considered as not polite in the US if you reply like that for me, it's just a habit of doubling a confirmation or a negation

It's okay to say "no, no" or "yes, yes" in the US. It just sounds redundant.

But saying "Yeah, no" sounds funny and confusing.
People would think which is it, Yes or No?

it say "yeah, yeah" a lot, which is not really good, coz with certain intonation it sounds more less like: "kiss my ass" lots of ppl told me that already
