comment Is the resemblance between the words “churir” and “churros” more than coincidence?
@rsanchez, you should make this comment an answer, because it seems the right one (to me, at least)

comment ¿Qué es “inventar el hilo negro”?
Otra expresión que he oído yo en España es Descubrir el Mediterráneo (lo cual tiene bastante sentido para un español, porque descubrir el mar que rodea casi el 90% del territorio es bastante... absurdo) :D

comment Difference between vegetales and verduras?
Maybe is just my... mindset, but I also tend to think that "verduras" is something that you tend to cook (boil, mainly) before eating. I would never say that lechuga (lettuce) is a verdura... But maybe is just because of the way my mom used to call it... I totally agree with Jose J. Fernández, answer, though.

comment Translation: más famoso del cine
I'm not a native English speaker, but wouldn't it be slightly more correct: either spy's with licence to kill charms or has fallen for the charms of the most famous spy with license to kill in the movie industry ? (just asking)

comment ¿Es correcto usar 'amarizar' o 'amartizar' para aterrizar en Marte?
Esta pregunta me ha hecho echarle un ojete a lo que dice la RAE de "amarizar": lema.rae.es/drae/?val=amarizar Una de las acepciones es ovejas echando un huete (más o menos)... Qué poco tecnológico queda eso... Pero me ha hecho gracia...

comment “cursive” and “printed” writing
Just a small addition... In Spain I'd say that we wouldn't understand "Manuscrita" as "Cursive". For us, "Manuscrita" is "hand-written" (without specifying any kind of style). Besides that, the usage is the same as Sergio said. (Cursive = Cursiva, Printed = Molde o De Imprenta)

comment What would be a good translation of “to go well with”?
Yet another one! (which I use specially with drinks): "mezcla bien" (literally, "mixes well")

comment Which language do I use to address Spanish speaker in America?
Yep... that's what I do... Also, sometimes, if I have to be the one starting the conversation, I may greet in both languages and let the other person choose... "Good morning, hola" :)
