@B.ClayShannon: You never hear "one eight-hundred..." in a TV/radio advertisement in English?

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.

comment Plurality of organizations
This is a good question. I believe the singular form is correct, but it may not be a hard and fast rule. For example, in American English, the singular form is usually used when referring to organizations (Codeacademy has...), but in British English the plural (Codeacademy have...).

comment Traducción: “America or burst”
Eso es correcto. "America or Burst" es un error intencional, en carácter con Balki, quien siempre dice las frases populares un poco incorrectas.

comment How to Quickly Determine if a Text is in Castilian or Latin-American Spanish
Calling European Spanish "Castillian" and Latin-American Spanish "Spanish" is incorrect. In fact, the main place where the name "Castilian" is standard, and "Spanish" is effectively rejected, is in certain South-American countries. In Spain, the terms are fairly interchangeable. See here.

comment How would you translate “Como en su día fueron…”
It's unclear to me what you're asking. Are you asking us to correct your Spanish translation? That's off-topic. Are you asking us to translate the Spanish phrase into English? That's also off-topic. If, on the other hand, you simply have a question about your translation into Spanish, that will be on topic, but you need to be more specific. What are your specific questions about the translation you attempted?

comment Cómo se dice en español “Women's Network”?
Are you talking about a network comprised of women? Or are you talking about a network owned by or used by women? They would take different translations. Or are you talking about a specific, proper noun? Once you clarify the question a bit, please flag for moderator attention to have the question re-opened.

comment Name of the “United States”
In English we almost always say "the United States", so maybe I just carried that habit over from my first language. Thanks for your answer!

This is the correct answer. Although «epiceno» refers to a related, but different concept.
