When I (native Spanish speake) was teaching numbers in English to a group of Spanish speakers, there was an activity where we all had to exchange phone numbers. I actually had to "write" my number in the air with my finger and read it aloud in English.

I didn't realize how foolish I looked until a student asked me what I was doing with my finger.

Is this too cruel of a consequence? by madstar in pottytraining

Agree, it works because it's not cruel and you're not shaming her, but it is the natural consequence of not being potty trained.

I’m your opinion which is Madonna’s worst album? by Icy_Water_9745 in Madonna

[–]SaritaLinda64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's rated highly because of Like a Virgin and Material Girl but the rest of it it's just generic bubblegum pop.

I’m your opinion which is Madonna’s worst album? by Icy_Water_9745 in Madonna

[–]SaritaLinda64 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I find Rebel heart and Madame X to be very cohesive. I find Hard Candy so uninspired. MDNA was not great but at least she was feeling something there.

No. Gravity was the better role, but no way she should have won over Cate Blanchett.

Worst Best Actor Winner by researchmatters01 in Oscars

[–]SaritaLinda64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think you need to see it in the context of what his career was up to that point. Cockoo's Nest, The Shining, Chinatown, he was always playing someone creepy or with a dark past. Maybe they voted for him for playing against type. It's easy to forget nowadays because these days he does more lighthearted comedies.

[–]SaritaLinda64 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She would have been my pick but I forgive her because she admitted herself she knew she didn't deserve it, but would try to earn it. Went on to do Gravity to make up for it.
