The oddest line I ever searched on the internet

…and found is “mummy, oh daddy, let’s all play kabbadi“. It’s a line from one of my favourite TV series, SPACED, created by Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson, and I also just learned what Kabbadi – actually Kabaddi is: A field game that’s played in particular in the Punjab. Here’s an excerpt from Spaced, not about Kabaddi, but about Paintball:

But Kabaddi seems to be an odd game! I would like to see a game of that. Here is how Wikipeda describes the rules:

The teams take turns sending a “raider” across to the opposite team’s half, where the goal is to tag or wrestle (“capture”) members of the opposite team before returning to the home half. Tagged members are “out” and are sent off the field. Traditionally, the raider was not allowed to take a breath during the raid, and had to prove this by constantly chanting (called ‘cant’ or ‘dak’) during the raid. The chant-word is kabaddi in India and Pakistan, hađuđu in Bangladesh, do-do in Nepal, guddu in Sri Lanka, chado-guddo in Malaysia, Zoo in Iran, and techib in Indonesia.

Cool, ha? And that is what it looks like – athletic young men in their underwear wrestling with each other – I’d prefer that to a cat fight any time! Couldn’t this be the new beach volleyball?

A little post in the middle of everything

So they’ve got internet here in Berlin! 20 minutes in the hotel cost 1 Euro, but I couldn’t resist. The opening event yesterday was both interesting, kind of what I expected and kind of bette than what I feared. Marlene Streeruwitz gave a smart opening lecture, whilst at the same time sounding quite frustrated – not a surprise to see that happend to some feminists. The text that won the first prize… would have never received my first prize, a gothic tale about a man with one normal abled arm and a hook on the other one (question of realism – that is just not done anymore, certainly not in German speaking countries) who jerks off sitting by the pool, watching his daughter and a girl-friend coming to visit…. complete with tiny ‘continuity errors’ such as “he folded his hands above his stomach” – how is he supposed to do that if one hand is an iron hook?

Other than that, the quality of my spam is going up:
