MISTRESS OF SCIENCE! Mwah ha ha ha.
(Actually now with PhD, but Doctor of Philosophy just doesn't have the same evil ring, does it?)
I REALLY needed to read something like this today - thank you. My favourite has always been 'pulla delenda est' (the chicken must be destroyed).
Wait a minute -- did you get that from me, or did you just _happen_ to find it within the same 12-hour period that I did????
I _thought_ I just found it...is it on your blog? Did I follow a link of yours and completely forget that I did?
I love the Internets! Centurion: What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house? Brian: It says, "Romans go home." Centurion: No, it doesn't! What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on ! Brian: Er, "Romanus"! Centurion: Goes like? Brian: Annus. Centurion: Vocative plural of "Annus" is? Brian: Er, er, annus, anni, anno, annum, anno, anni... "Romani"! Centurion: [writes "Romani" over Brian's graffiti] "Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go" ! Brian:Er, "Ire".Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt". Centurion: So, "eunt" is... ? Brian Third person plural present indicative, "they go". Centurion: But, "Romans go home" is an order. So you must use... ? [twists Brian's ear] Brian: Aaagh! The imperative! Centurion; Which is...? Brian: Which is...? Brian: Aaaaagh! Er, er... "i"! Centurion: How many Romans? Brian: Aaaaagh! Plural, plural... er, "ite"! Centurion: [writes "ite" on wall] "Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion toward, isn't it? Brian: Dative! [Centurion holds a sword at Brian's throat] Aaagh! Not the dative, not the dative! Er, er... accusative, "ad domum"! Centurion: But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...? Brian: Er... "Domum"! Centurion: [writes "Domum" on wall] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times. Brian: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir. Hail Caesar, sir. Centurion: Hail Caesar! And if it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off.
I'm pretty sure I found the phrase on some unknown (to me) site, and then looked it up to see what it meant, which led to the site I linked to.
As you can see on my del.icio.us page, I just bookmarked this on the 11th.
No, it looks unfamiliar...I arrived at it by another route.That is SO weird!Next you'll be eating black licorice, or I, red.
Are you using StumbleUpon? I probably have it there, too.
Nope. I have pretty much stayed away from it entirely, as I already have plenty of triggers to go web-surfing when I should be working as it stands now.
