comment Idiomatic translation of “elevator pitch”
I thought I'd test your theory that "elevator pitch" is more common, but neither "elevator pitch" nor "discurso del ascensor" has any hits in Google ngrams viewer for Spanish. :/

comment How to translate “for dummies” to something more polite than “para tontos”?
How about "idiotas?" Would "Windows para Idiotas" have a similar ring as the English title? ("for Idiots" is another popular English brand, spun off of the popularity of the For Dummies books)

IMHO, "for Dummies" is pretty harsh in English, too. But I think that's part of why it works; it's so harsh so as to be sarcastic, and some people find the humor appealing.

comment Am I the only who thinks “longitud” is a weird word for “length”?
Can you edit your question (and the title, especially) to not look like a "poll"/rant question, and focus on the objective part of your question?

comment Origin of the name “Jesucristo”
This is exactly the type of answer I'm looking for! I wonder if you can add some sources, especially for the second to last paragraph, about the origin of the two Spanish words.
