South American prostitutes spend an enormous amount of time talking on the phone, with great animation.. My experience of South American prostitutes is rather limited, but they are frequently gathered outside 'bars', imnvariably gesticulating pointless at the person on the other end of the phone they have stuck to their ear. I did know a Venezuelan girl socially at one point, and she was exactly the same when she was with a customer. When she was just at a party with her boyfriend she didn't behave that way.
The first team to miss a penalty in the shoot-out goes on to win. This is unlikely to be a universal law, and it was easy to prove false, but as a tendency I believe it is real. Italy showed how it works last night. When Montolivo put it high, I knew we were in trouble. And so it turned out.
A bull that stops suddenly and quivers in the first stage of a bullfight will be brave and give good ‘juego’. It's a kind of convulsion that some bulls give when first confronted with a cape. It's not regarded as a good sign, but by the end it's been forgotten and no one bothers to correlate. Well I have done, over the years, and it is clearly a good sign. I can't recall a bull turning out bad when it's made that gesture.
The children of child psychologists/child psychiatrists/experts in children are invariably weird. For professional reasons I have known quite a lot of such people, and when I say they invariably have weird children, I meam I haven't come across an exception. I suspect that parenting is, in general, something best done naturally, by instinct. When you try to do it by the application of theories, based on unconfirmed and perhaps unconfirmable hypotheses, that were developed to deal with children with mental problems and in difficult circumstances, you create a problem that shouldn't have existed.
