Delling's Thread
« on: September 23, 2010, 12:16:16 PM »
How do you not already have a thread in the new forums, my multi-lingual friend?  ???

This thread is all yours.  I know you're going to have 4,936,947,512 pictures to share with us from living in Ireland, so I made a place for you. ;D

You're awesome, Delling!  So glad you're here!

I haven't seen Delling around in a while. I wonder if he knows about this thread yet?

Just wanted to make it known that Delling is awesome  ;) Especially the grammar and multiple languages. I really respect anyone with that much linguistic know-how  :D

Yeah, I was on the forum VERY briefly in the middle of doing other things. *has been on vacation and then has been busy with grad work and (ongoing) immigration bureaucracy*

How do you not already have a thread in the new forums, my multi-lingual friend?  ???

This thread is all yours.  I know you're going to have 4,936,947,512 pictures to share with us from living in Ireland, so I made a place for you. ;D

Gracias Haids! :D

*feels the love* Oh... that's the sunlight from the window. :P Well, it still feels awesome. XB Also, is that an invitation to post a bajillion pictures I see in there? :D I think I'll just link to the albums on Facebook when they're done. :P

Yaaaaaaaay, Return of the Delling!  Welcome back!

Of course!  This is your thread, Delling, and we all want to see your Ireland pictures!  (At least, I do! :))

oh do you now? :evil:  :suffer: MWAHAHAHAHA :suffer: :devil: ahem... I mean, I'll have to get Rome finished up soon then. *makes a note to do that when he gets back from Taekwondo* :)

(Posted on: September 27, 2010, 01:45:01 PM)


*literally and physically made that note... and then didn't do it*

*needs space to grouse about something*

I have been going through a bunch of Linux help threads around the internet and this one rather helpful guy (he posts A LOT) has this in his siggie:

"Mundus vult decepi, ego non "

I hate it when people try to be cute or clever and get things terribly wrong!

That is not Latin! That is gibberish! I thought I'd gone insane when I first saw it! (which is why I hate it when people do this... I end up having to roll SAN checks).

What he meant was: "Mundus vult decipi, ego non" which means "The world wishes to be deceived, not I." What he said was: "The world wishes **blank** I have deceived **blank**, not I" (with these massive blanks left for the complements of the verbs).

There are TWO independent verb forms in the sentence (Can a sentence have TWO verbs with neither a conjunction (to mark a compound verb or sentence) nor some form of subordination?)? No, it can't).

Please, if you're going to say something in Latin and you aren't consciously trying to make Dog Latin, PLEASE get someone who actually KNOWS Latin to check out what you're going to say.

Now that I've had my little tirade, I would like to ask about everyone else's pet peeves. :P

People who put shoes on their bed!  Ugh.  It's almost as bad as sitting on a pillow you sleep with...:X

Oh, and side note: Delling, how do you say "caring" in Latin?

Well, it depends. The most basic way to translate it would be "curans". It depends on how you're going to use it in a sentence too (matters of case and all that).

Gah... I hate both of those too!!

My bed is not the floor and my head goes on that, thank you very much!

Thanks!  How would you pronnounce it?

TOTALLY!  It completely grosses me out when I see someone with their shoes on the bed.  I have to change my sheets if someone does it on my bed!

And the pillow thing...ugh.  It reminds me of on Knocked Up when they all get pink eye from...such an event (sort of. :no: )

koo-rans oo as in boot and the a is pronounced between the a in apple and the a in father (just treat it like a schwa ;P)

If you'd like to know more about pronouncing vowels, there's always this chart (just search "vowel" on wikipedia):



(The u and the a in curans are pronounced as the u and the a on the chart.)

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Haha!  Thanks, Delling.  I appreciate it. :)

And as to another pet peeve--when people sing the abc's to toddlers, and they don't separate "l, m, n, o, p" and say them as "lmnop."  Are you kidding?!  Tods can't follow that!  (I work directly with toddlers, so that gets on my nerves more than it does with normal people. :P)

Nooooo!  He confuses my kids and makes them mumble that part of the alphabet! :devil: Poor kids.  And when you try to do the abc's in sign language, it's even more confusing for them 'cause they think that Elimenopi is one letter.  :no:
