comment Translating the Jive dialogue
+1 great question! IMHO this is one of the best comedy scenes of all time. "Oh, stewardess? I speak jive." LMAO!

comment What was the purpose of Candie's handshake in Django Unchained?
I would guess the "grabbing it in a certain spot" is a reaction to Candie's grabbing it "full fisted." In other words, Schultz was so disgusted by Candie that he minimized his contact with the pen Candie just man-handled.

comment What would be the equivalent of the carnivorous island?
Here's author Martel's explanation: island served the sole purpose of making the “animal” version of the story harder and harder to believe. “Many readers assume it is something deeply symbolic they just don’t get, or it’s an hallucination –they need a reason to prop up the fiction.” But “religion goes beyond the confines of the reasonable”. from paula-greatstories.blogspot.com/2008/09/…

comment “Life of Pi” Final Insurance Report
no, I think you got the line right... just saying my interpretation of the meaning was different. I'd say the guy Pi was telling the story to didn't all of a sudden start believing in God... he just had a new understanding for why believing in God might be appealing.
