The 35-60 rule
There are some things you’re not allowed to do between the ages of 35 and 60. Under 35 is fine (young and good looking and still experimenting), as is over 60 (veteran, young at heart, ‘what I want to be when I grow up’), but in-between is a bit sad and menopausal.
1. Dance at a gig in the middle at the front on your own. Maybe a few rows back, or at the side or wait til others dance too. (see also http://2types.tumblr.com/post/33075817173/the-golden-rule );
2. Get your first tat or your first piercing (ok if you’re just adding to earlier ones of course, just not the first one);
3. Get your first motorbike (again, ok if it’s not your first);
More to come.
You can’t interrupt a Turk
Think about it. If they’re not going to tell you the verb until the end of the sentence, you don’t know enough about what they will have said until they’ve finished. Cunning!
(OK this is just an edit of my earlier paragraph about the German language: http://2types.tumblr.com/post/38312965441/you-cant-interrupt-a-german )
