..:: ¿surfear? ::..

¿A quién se le ocurrió acuñar la expresión "surf the net" para definir la acción de entrar y salir de páginas web y empezar en a y terminar en b pasando por d, f, t, y, z, o?

¿Por qué no "swim the web" o "dive in the net" o "ski the net" o "play the net" o "cook the net"?

Acciones más descriptivas de lo que uno hace leyendo sobre "El hombre árbol" –un hombre indonesio con una rara enfermedad de la piel conocida como candylomatosis– a las seis de la mañana en un domingo: nadar, bucear, jugar, cocinar.

(El hombre árbol, no sé si me la crea o no. Es como lo de los gatos bonsai o el "Sigue a la morsa" que terminó siendo Goddess Bunny. Pero soy campo fértil para el escándalo.)

(Leo después una nota sobre un hombre con una enfermedad similar en Europa del Este:

A missionary in Eastern Europe recently reported an extremely rare (condylomatosis) skin condition. This disease is called Lewandowsky-Lutz dysplasia. This missionary wrote:

I found this man, and other than his hands and feet, he looked and seemed in good health. As best as I could gather these growths began when he was 14 years old, and began in the area of his wrists. The skin on his wrists and the back of his hands resembles that of a hedgehog - hundreds of spike like growths. The problem is much more severe on his palms and fingers where the growths resemble very much that of nails infected with a fungus. The growths have that same texture, smell and feel. I cut a number of the largest growths off, most of witch did not bleed. Some of the smaller growths did bleed a small amount and he seemed much more sensitive to the cutting of the smaller growths.

It has grown slowly but steadily but has not spread to other parts of his body, just a bit below his knees on his legs. He has other skin growth (many would be skin tags) on his face, and some moles on his chest. The growths are not as bad on his feet but I was told that more than 10 years ago many we cauterized off his feet, and they did not return. I think with repeated soaking and cutting most could be removed but other parts will I think need to be burned away in some form.”

He has 15 skin tags on his face, and a wart in one ear.

Pobre hombre. En verdad pobre hombre. La crueldad de la gente es increíble, hombre arbol... que pocamadre.

En fin, ahora seré yo el que no pueda quitarme estas imágenes de la mente durante mucho tiempo.
