    Of course, no doubt the thing that makes a great dancer is his character and passion and determination. Why a should a good dancer be any particular type of person.

    I'm afraid there is nothing here but the similar sound of huevo and nuevo. Oh and yes he cancelled the Feb workshop too. But then, he's a genius.

    Hmm liked that. And, and, and.. he echos my views entirely when he says:

    "Because giving classes you teach and you learn. You learn because each person is different and is a constant elaboration that enriches you a lot, a very direct contact..."

    As teachers we are mere students.

    Who knows, 6000 years ago God gave us a size significantly smaller than his/hers but today there is this genetically-modified food that turns a newborn chick into a 5-pound chicken in less than 10 days, if a human makes it his/her diet then he/she might become quite big.

    whassat? you can't put two scientists in a building without a standard error function...

    on size: we could probably get wider but our hearts conk out if we get any taller, can't deal with the pressure of lifting the blood.

    OTOH, we could start walking on all fours in which case we could end up as big as a hippo or so. Hows that for an evolutionary development?

    PS disclaimer: none of the above is true, except two things

    Milongerwock

    "Beware the Milongerwock, my son!
    The mordidas that bite, the cifs that catch!
    Beware the Darcos heel, and shun
    The boloeus Bandersnatch!"

    He took his Veronal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought --
    So rested he by the Cafeteria Ideal,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Milongerwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the Urquiza wood,
    And sacada-ed as it came!

    Uno, dos, uno, dos! And through and through
    The veronal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went colgading back.

    "And, has thou slain the Milongerwock?
    Come to my arms, my barrioish boy!
    O firulete day! Callooh! Callay!'
    He cortéd in his joy.

    :notworth: Great!

    And with that inspiration :

    There was an old man of Buenos Aires
    Who often received ladies' stair-es
    He sometimes appeared
    With a cat in his beard
    That peculiar old man of Buenos Aires

    (why a cat? why not?)

    Fantastic - I've nicked that :)

    - put it in "Poet's corner" rather than humour, for obvious reasons.

    Anyone fancy taking a crack at the Terminator Guide To Tango? Seems an obvious one, really...

    Couple of obvious ones:
    - "I'll be back... sacada-ing"
    - "Dance with me if you want to live"
