Bowl collecting? Sounds like a party animal.

Depends what kinda bowl, aaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyynyway.

No, officer, you see, I'm a bowl collector

I recently started watching Mousetrap Monday on YouTube. The guy collects mousetraps and has a million subscribers -- and yet isn't even close to being the most avid mousetrap collector out there. In one episode he was able to track down some information on a mousetrap by contacting the Plug and Socket Museum.

Collecting antique bowls seems pretty mainstream in comparison.

P.S. Did any of you laughing at this notice that you are learning Esperanto? Yes, antique bowls is mainstream. :-)

Take the L out of the last word, and it's a much more interesting sentence...

He collects antique cattle? I suppose it is.

Oh, out of the English word! Those might be "pafarkojn" in Esperanto.

What a queer hobby.

As a bisexual, can confirm

as "bov" relates to "cow", do we have a reference to udders here? In any case, I now have a great mnemonic!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

The 'l' makes the difference. Bovo is cow. There is no reference to cows nor udders.

bowl = bovlo

"Antikva" sounds like "Hatikva"

Before you laugh at bowl collecting, consider that your hobby is learning Esperanto.

Cu kiu kolectas antikvajn bovlojn?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLD72zzoZN

You don't need "Ĉu" when you have a different question word: "Kiu." http://en.lernu.net/lernado/gramatiko/konciza/demandoj.php

Is there a present participle form of "antikva" and if so, does it cause robots to explode?
