I will support the North Korean invasion of the USA if they promise to ban football. I'll gladly spend years eating bark off trees just to see the melancholy in the faces of football fans.

Handegg or real football?

Handegg, but come to think of it, ban everything with a ball and force everyone to play badminton.

I can't stand badminton. It makes me dizzy. It isn't as bad as volleyball though.

Bite your toungue! Badminton and Volleyball are the greatest games ever invented. Of course, being a Malayalee might colour my judgement some.

Does that mean you are from Malaysia?

If so, I want to compliment you and your government for a recent action they took.

I've never heard "Malayalee" before.

I believe it refers to a speaker of Malayalam, which is one of the Indian languages. He's most likely from Kerala.

"From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!”  He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys." - 2 Kings 2:23-25 (NIV)

So guys, I just found out some horrible news.  Evidently, there is a very spiritual bear out there; he's joined a monastery; and my sins make him cry.
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

I'm like 90% sure there are canons expressly forbidding bears to go into monasteries. You should call up a bishop. I'm also pretty sure bears can't cry, unless you're talking about Chicago Bears or certain sorts of gay guys. And even then, I don't think they're supposed to.

Anyway, the new Man of Steel trailer is really really awesome and July 25 can't happen fast enough.

2- Man of Steel?  Are they making a superhero movie about Stalin?  Gangsta.

All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, those who in their own language are called Celts, in our Gauls, the third. All these differ from each other in language, customs and laws. The river Garonne separates the Gauls from the Aquitani; the Marne and the Seine separate them from the Belgae. Of all these, the Belgae are the bravest, because they are furthest from the civilization and refinement of [our] Province, and merchants least frequently resort to them, and import those things which tend to effeminate the mind; and they are the nearest to the Germans, who dwell beyond the Rhine , with whom they are continually waging war

Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. It's from Mark Anthony's speech.

The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones.
I remember having to memorize that speech in high school. What you quoted is about all I remember.

Surely you remember "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!"

Of course. "Friends, ________, and countrymen, etc." is a wonderful way of getting a large crowd's attention (if you are predisposed to start public speeches in outlandish ways).
Note : Many of my posts (especially the ones antedating late 2012) do not reflect charity, tact, or even views I presently hold. Please forgive me for any antagonism I have caused.

I probably should have known that, but you're the native English speaker and I'm not. Wait, wut?  :angel:

All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, those who in their own language are called Celts, in our Gauls, the third. All these differ from each other in language, customs and laws. The river Garonne separates the Gauls from the Aquitani; the Marne and the Seine separate them from the Belgae. Of all these, the Belgae are the bravest, because they are furthest from the civilization and refinement of [our] Province, and merchants least frequently resort to them, and import those things which tend to effeminate the mind; and they are the nearest to the Germans, who dwell beyond the Rhine , with whom they are continually waging war
Is this offered as a translation of something you posted in Latin earlier on this thread?

It is somewhat a Latin schoolboy's joke, if I understand correctly.  Sort of like mentioning "Dick and Jane" to those of a certain age in the US, depending on when they learned to read.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

This is a hilarious facebook page making fun of Dunglish (Dutch English). And yes, most Dutch people really do speak English like that. It's Dutch translated literally into English.
Unless things have radically changed over your lifetime (I was in the Netherlands last before you were born, and in Flanders when you were a mere babe), you sell yourselves short.  Most Dutch (and Flemish) spoke English fine, some without even an accent.

But maybe you are talking about those I spoke Dutch with.

Would you do me a favor, then? I'm asking this in green, so consider this the formal request of a moderator. If a moderator asks for you to provide an English translation of something you post in a foreign language, please connect the translation to the original--for instance, by providing both in the same post or stating clearly what you're translating. I couldn't tell for certain if you were actually providing a translation or merely adding something new to the thread. As it stands now, I still don't know which post you translated, if you translated only one, or what Latin statement you translated.
