While we prefer to let sleeping dogs lie, please notice that no one came unglued, threatened anyone, shouted wild epitaphs at other Forums, posted insulting graphics or made childish insinuations. If you have questions, search around but if you don't find the answers, query away. No one is going to get upset. Dammit, it's just how we roll. :cheers:

I've communicated privately to Hiram about it; sorry if I offended anyone.

Seriously, I'm delighted you have joined in. Your posts have been reasonable, honest and productive both here and at FV. I hope you continue being active on the Forums.

I find that knowing who you guys are in real life gives me a deeper sense of investment and involvement here. It also makes you think ( a dwindling concept online these days) before I type.

This way, even the fun sarcastic pokes are friendly, appropriate or not, and friendships are made that
otherwise may be even adversarial!

If we meet at events, we already know each other...kinda cool.

See you later assholes!

I tried to find a definition for abrutis in the Urband Dictionary Urban Dictionary but there is no such entry.....

the dictionary shows the closest expression .....

it is :

abrutis isn't defined yet, but these are close:

permalink: Share on Send to a friend your email: their email: comment: send me the word of the day (it's free) 1. voggle
Derivated from the french expression "Vos gueules" (=Shut up (plural))

Hard to overstate the importance of meeting folks, especially ones you regularly "forum" with. Not that I'm trying to make a new verb or anything. ;)

And the Noun-as-Verb thing. Oh Gawd, that makes me crazy. Hearing people do that is like watching people buff the wrinkles out of their own brain.

Well, actually I was trying to come up with the French equivalent of "assholes" (this being an absinthe forum and all)...I think "abrutis" means "idiots." Of course, my French is terrible, so no guarantees.

In France, they would probably use the word "connard", but it pretty much means idiot anyway.

Thank you. How strong an epithet is "connard," if I may ask?

asshole. shithead. not up to the animosity level of Fuck You, more like what you'd yell at a bad driver or annoying drunk at the next table.......

although from my experience the skill is never in the epithet itself, but how much of a reaction one can get from it's proper use.

I take your point. I generally never swear in any language other than English, for that very reason.

I asked a friend in France.... he just replied to me :

Well, I would say that the translation is "connard" (don't pronounce the "d" at the end) and "connasse" for a female. But this is very strong and probably not easy to make a joke with this word in french. With a friend I would use "enfoiré". A last thing, the direct translation for "asshole" would be "trou du cul"

this came directly from Paris....

cheers,

Since this thread eventually became a joke, there you have a contribution :

LEARN MANY LANGUAGES, IT CAN SAVE LIFES !
SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING A SECOND (OR THIRD) LANGUAGE.

São Paulo has the most number of japanese people in the world after Japan.... So, Japanese can be considered an important language there........

I went to the Hospital, to visit my neighbour Sakura, a japanese fellow, who was involved in a bad car accident.

He was all tubed and piped, closed eyes, totally still in his bed.I was standing on the side of his bed, and seeing him in that situation I made a silent pray.

Then, he woke up, opened his eyes wide, and screamed to me :

SAKARO AOTA NAKAMY ANYOBA, SUSHI MASHUTA!
.......then he had his last breath and died.

The last words of my friend were in my head all the time !

During his funeral I approached Sakura's mother to express my sentiments to her, and I told her:

- Mrs Fumiko, I feel obliged to tell you that Sakura, just before his death, told me the following japanese words :

SAKARO AOTA NAKAMY ANYOBA, SUSHI MASHUTA!

- What does that mean ?

Sakura's mother, Mrs. Fumiko, looked at me with a surprise in his face, and translated :

- TAKE YOUR FOOT OUT OF THE OXYGEN HOSE YOU S__ OF B___ !
