Mennyi is az annyi? – szókincs, érdekességek

A következő rövid leckében 20 példát láthattok arra, hogyan is magyarázták meg a 2 méteres távolságot a social distancing kapcsán feliratokban.

A következő rövid leckében 20 példát láthattok arra, hogyan is magyarázták meg a 2 méteres távolságot a social distancing kapcsán feliratokban. Nem mindenki kedveli a metrikus rendszert, így sokkal ‘látványosabb’ módon oldották meg a 2 méteres távolságra utalást Amerikában. Becsempésztünk néhány érdekes utalást bútorok vagy épp kátyúk mérete kapcsán is.


Probably the most distinctive feature that sets apart America from the rest of the world is its measurement system, aka The Imperial System. While it’s an okay system to them, it proves inefficient compared to the metric system, which you will never see Americans use. Ironically, they would use the first thing that comes to their minds as a measurement (e.g. washing machine, hamburger, etc).

  1. No measuring tape? No problem, your body will do. Approx. 6’2” long.
  2. A sinkhole roughly the size of six to seven washing machines has closed the northbound lanes of State Line Road near 100th Street in Kansas City, Missouri.
  3. Did you know? The world’s smallest mammal is the Bumble Bee Bat. It weighs less than a coin.
  4. Shop with space, give everyone 4 hangers of distance. I wish I had that extra closet space.
  5. Adult deer are as tall as a bicycle. They weigh as much as 800 hamburgers.
  6. How much is 6 feet? 3 clarinets, 1 trombone (slide fully extended), 1 flag pole, 1 marimba, 3 trumpets or 1 trumpet player (leave room for ego). Maintain social distance!
  7. Let’s explore Georgia safely! Please stay one deer apart! (Fun fact: the white-tailed deer is the official mammal of the state of Georgia) Stay 6 Feet Apart!
  8. 6-Drawer Dresser. About 6-feet wide and as tall as a stretched out
  9. Please keep at least a bathtub’s length from the nearest person!
  10. Please allow six feet between you and others. (That’s 2 Great Danes, 4 Cats or 16 hamsters)
  11. Help us stay open. Please stay two bushes apart and wear a mask!
  12. Physical distancing. Keep one alligator!
  13. Your social guide to social distancing six feet St. Louis style! 36 toasted ravs lined up end-to-end; 6 gooey butter cakes; 2 Stanley Cups
  14. Please respect one another’s personal bubble! Stay happily apart! Keep your distance! Please respect the distance: 1,5m – 2m. That’s 15 pint glasses apart!!
  15. Please stand 46 timbits apart!
  16. Are you one rhino’s length away from the next group? Please practice social distancing!
  17. Maintain social distancing! Keep one cow apart! At least six feet! Protect against infection!
  18. A “doggy-sized” pothole patched on North Side
  19. A truck-sized asteroid is headed toward Earth in November, NASA said.
  20. Give each other space and stay safe! 2 meters is approximately 2 lions tall.

(Trous de Beigne)

Timbits are bite-sized doughnut holes made from leftover doughnut dough, fried in vegetable oil and available in a number of varieties such as yeast, cake, apple fritter, honey dip, old fashion plain, chocolate glazed, blueberry, strawberry, lemon, and filled timbits.

They are sold in North American fast-food chains such as Tim Hortons and Dunkin’ Donuts. The bit in Timbit is an acronym for Big in Taste, which is an original campaign slogan from the 1970s. In Quebec, people prefer to use the generic term doughnut holes or trous de beigne instead of timbits.

These tiny doughnut holes are so popular in Canada that people even bake them at home.
Timbits are also known as munchkins.

Toasted Ravs (toasted raviolis)

Toasted ravioli is breaded deep-fried ravioli, usually served as an appetizer. It was created and popularized in St. Louis, Missouri at two restaurants, Mama Campisi’s and Charlie Gitto’s. Both are located in an Italian-American neighborhood, “The Hill”.

Stanley Cup
a trophy emblematic since 1926 of the championship of the National Hockey League, composed of Canadian and U.S. professional teams.
