Latin for all occasions
« on: October 29, 2008, 04:09:38 PM »
A very lovely, funny Web site:

http://www.columbia.edu/cu/augustine/arch/omnibus.html

I particularly like Purgamentum init, exit purgamentum; Atque memento, nulli adsunt Romanorum qui locutionem tuam corrigant; Cum homine de cane debeo congredi; and of course Die dulci fruimini.

Nice stuff.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov

And now I'm jealous that you know and teach latin. LOL

Oh, I know how to deal with Internet trolls! If I see a next nasty posting of a troll, I'll reply, "Heus, modo itera omnia quae mihi nunc nuper narravisti, sed nunc Anglice?" And if he shows signs of being at a loss, I'll add, "Vah! Denuone Latine loquebar?"  ;D ;D ;D
