You Know You are Hungarian When...

Címer.huAvagy honnan tudhatod, hogy magyar vagy?
  1. When you use sour cream more than ketchup.
  2. When your parents come to visit for 3 weeks and you all stay in a one bedroom apartment.
  3. When feeding your guests is your main priority even if they claim they're not hungry and in which case you get slightly offended/upset that they don't want your hospitality.
  4. When someone says that Hungarian "is like Russian and all those other Slavic languages," and then you have to go into great detail about the origins of Hungarian with a scolding history lesson.
  5. When Paprika & Erős Pista are just as important as salt & pepper on the table & in food.
  6. When you know what Unicum is and prefer it over Jägermeister.
  7. When you know how to open a bottle of wine with only a screw and a pair of pliers.
  8. When you tell someone that you are Hungarian, they ask "Are you hungry?" Then you congratulate them on being the millionth person to say that to you.
  9. When you've heard, "If you're hungry, why not go to Turkey?" at least once in your life.
  10. When you have a relative who's named Attila, Géza, József, János or László.

The Day The Routers Died…


a long long time ago
i can still remember
when my laptop could connect elsewhere

and i tell you all there was a day
the network card i threw away
had a purpose - and worked for you and me….

But 18 years completely wasted
with each address we’ve aggregated
the tables overflowing
the traffic just stopped flowing….
