What makes the biker drive all these tracks? Why is he fascinated with apples and flowers so much? What is he trying to achieve? Is it just a daily physical exercise for him? Is driving all he has in his life? Give me your theories.

Location: In a northern danish city beating YOUR record.
Because he wants to be the very best
Like no one ever was
To catch apples is his real test
To eat them is his cause
He will travel across the land
Searching far and wide
Touch flowers to understand
The power that is inside

Its him and you
He knows it's his destiny
Player, oh, he's your best friend
In a world he must defend
A stomach so hungry
His hunger will pull us through

You teach him and he'll teach you
Apples, gotta eat them all

Every challenge along the way
With courage he will face
He will battle every day
To claim his rightful place

Come with him, the time is right
There's no better team
Hand on keyboard, he'll play again
It's always been his dream

Yeah, I was thinking about a woman too. Maybe he wants to make a flower crown for his girl. But collecting flowers takes a while so he has to eat apples sometimes.

Btw can we tell for sure that he's a man?

He was out on his bike one night, stealing apples from his neighbours, but as he was making his getaway the wheel skidded on a flower, he crashed and suffered permanent brain damage. Now he is reliving his last memories again and again and again and again...






I had some serious difficulty translating the word "epleslang" for this story, it's a Norwegian word which involves going into somebody else's garden and taking apples from their apple tree. It's quite common here, almost expected even. Apparantly this never happens anywhere else in the world???

I think the rest of the world calls it "stealing" :)
edit: good story!

The bikers motivation is to be free, but he is a slave to computer programming and the commands we give through our fingers. It would be a very frustrating life.

Did a little more digging, apparantly the word "scrumping" is used for this in England, although in many places around the world it can also mean dry-humping or just plain ol' boning, so that's quite funny. Anyone else have a word for this? Polish? Russian? German? Danish? Czech? Hungarian? I'm intrigued now =P

I don't know a common word for this.
I know a word which I've learned from my grandfather, but I'm pretty sure it was a made-up word by him, because never heard it from anybody else, and even google can't find it: grajf.
Its meaning is similar: taking small amount of fruit, vegetables or crops from any unguarded area.

Oke, so I asked my mom and she came up with a couple of terms for when they went to orchards to pick fruit (illegally ofc) - "chodzić na pachtę/szaber". The words by themselves are not used anymore, after some digging I found that one of them (szaber, which probably comes from German) was initially used after WW2 to refer to poles going around German flats after they fleed and picking up stuff to sell. Later (our parents youth sort of time) it was used for grabbing fruit from orchards. Dunno the origin of the other, but apparently the two words are used depending on the region of Poland, so most people only used one and don't know the other, but some know both. I've never heard of them in my life tho, so I think pretty much dead words now. Fun topic to dig! :D

So szaber originally meant something like loot?

This is exciting =D There seems to be no record of this idea across languages in any translation sources that I can find, which is quite strange seeing as it's clearly an idea that has a presence in most places.

Cool "epleslang" topic. Spend some time at work googling for words that are untranslatable to other languages. This could have a topic on it's own, but there's several articles about that on the internet already.

20-awesomely-untranslatable-words

2 useless facts: we don't have a word for "stealing apples from another man's garden" in czech.

All those topics are only semi-correct (or maybe it would be better to say "outdated") about czech word "prozvonit". It does mean 1) to call someone just for a brief moment to let him know, that you want him or her to call you back. The first person does that, beacause he or she knows, that it will be cheaper or free for the other person to call him or her back. But nowadays it usually means 2) to ring someone's phone with your own phone, coz that person does not know where his phone is in the room / house.

Finnish has a special word for this too: "häläri". I'm not sure if it has taken the second meaning you mentioned here. Maybe?

There are lots of translations for "prozvonit" in the first sense, but lots of them are region-specific slang words which are not used anymore as no one does this anymore.

Give somebody a missed call / Call somebody and hang up (most common and understandable way of saying that)
Drop call somebody (USA)
Beep somebody (Africa)
Prank somebody (England and Australia)

In the second sense it's simply calling/ringing somebody. You don't hang up, so there's no need to use a different word.

There's no special word for this in Czech, but I've always heard people say "chodit na jablka" (= go apple picking) rather than "steal apples" in this context.
