pleasure derived from others' troubles.
although "schadenfreude" seems widely known I've never heard it being used in casual conversation.

Probably it's more the problem of not knowing how to pronounce it. I've heard "skäidenfruhd," for instance :)

word with quite similar meaning as terms like „lolita“ or „nymphet“, describing a sexually attractive girl with both, childlike and feminine attributes in terms of body and behavior.

used in modern Latin-American youth-cult’s language, which often adapts English expressions particularly in the lyrics of their songs (especially Spanish HipHop & Reggaeton)

from my sprachgefühl, "shorty" is not put into context with pedophilia as much as "Lolita" or "nymphet"

But as this term frequently gets interpreted as a dismissive and crude adjective, I'd never use it to define a girl's looking or personality.
As mentioned above, you'll find "shorty" in certain kinds of music where use is made of vulgar language.

Part of the lyrics taken from the song “Shorty” by “Los Leones”:

(In this song a boy/man basically sings about a girl he finds himself attracted to not being able to get with her because she is too young)

...Hey Shorty, dime la verdad, ¿cuál es tu edad?...

(Hey Shorty, tell me the truth, how old are you?)

…ella dice que es grande ya pero es una niña / ella es una shorty, pa', de corta edad…

(she says that she is a big girl (meaning adult) but she is a girl / she is a Shorty of young age)

as you can see, here "shorty" is used in a provocative, appetent way

please don’t overvalue this translation as I did it myself without being familiar with the Spanish language ;)

Do you know these situations when you’re just really bored and all you can think of doing is going into the kitchen searching for something tasty to at although you aren’t hungry at all?

These situations often cause people to do a spoon-lap. A spoon-lap is a quick round through the whole kitchen (or any other place you store food) where you just eat bits of various foods which don’t need preparation in a random order not paying attention to whether it is sweet, salty or sour or whatever flavour…

These situations mostly occur when you’re home alone or your TV-program is on commercial.

It’s called spoon-lap because most of the popular things you just grab or eat/drink out of their can/jar/bag/carton are consumed best with a spoon.

Popular spoon-lap foods: peanut butter yoghurts, Nutella, lasagne and other noodle-dishes, leftovers in general, granola, canned fruits, milk, pie, preserves and pickled stuff…

You of course don’t clean your spoon between dumping it in to different food stuff…
a Is Jake home?
b You gotta look for him upstairs - he’s about to complete his third spoon-lap

I just did a great spoon lap! I had a pickle, some of my favourite yoghurt, a bit of the macaroni-with-cheese-left-over from today’s lunch, some cereals and then I scoped out the freezer…man, I didn’t know that we had this delicious raspberry ice cream!!!
