It's clearly OK to impose your religious views on people. So... where's my obsidian knife?

Well, somebody has to ensure the sun will rise!

L'Esprit D'escalier: And we'll finally find out if Newt has one.

I presume the "escalier" in question is the one leading to the top of our holy pyramid?

As for the second part of your statement, if I may quote an ancient proverb:

"A Newt heart is hard to find"

The spirit of the stairwell is the one that whispers into your ear the perfect comeback you SHOULD have said when you were in the room.

Another of the sayings English should kidnap adopt as its own.

Have you seen This list?

I knew what it meant -- French is one of my languages, but since we were talking sacrificial blades of obsidian, etc...

I was surprised to think you didn't! Great word, eh? Need to do something with this. What's YOUR favourite foreign word, then?
Mar. 1st, 2012 09:25 am (UTC)
That will require considerable thought...

Somehow, this conversation seems to have suffered a train wreck!

Oh, and I did see the list before. Was it you who linked to it last time? Griefbacon seems to be everybody's favorite :)

My suggestions from the Irish language would be:
ceall -- it means "because of a lack of" and saves a lot of time
suaimhneas -- happy relaxed contentment. What's good about this word is that its pronunciation echoes its meaning very well indeed. Approximately: soo-eev-ness

...I blame tachyons. How do you say that in Irish?

na taceóní? *flees off into the future*

or, we could be really cool about it and make up a word that might mean, "little futurers": na todhachaíní

I like that idea. Something self-determined. And tiny. Sort of like Leeuwenhoek's "wee creatures", only they perform the function of creating the future. Just like those little fairies that assemble the world around me as I walk through it, creating the illusion that there's a massive universe out there...

We work, hard, I tell you. Just down turn around too fast or you'll catch us out...

And all this time, I never knew you were a card-carrying member of the union of res-artificers and context-shufflers (local#158).
