Trying to find something funny from the Internets... Tom Send a noteboard - 28/10/2019 01:19:04 AM

There was this hilarious article that explained how French is not the language of love because there aren't any words that mean what they're supposed to. Aimer means "to like" as well as "to love", and of course baiser...

It was a hypothetical situation and it made fun of how almost every word that could be used has other meanings that have become more commonplace.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius

Ummaka qinnassa nīk!

I always figured it was self-billing... - 29/10/2019 12:05:08 AM 13 Views
Latin is the language of love, it's what Romance means *NM* - 29/10/2019 02:28:12 AM 6 Views
