I worked at one place where pens vanished instantly.
One day out of office: chair gone.
Two days: "good keyboard" and working cables.
One week: Computer, and probably desk (if any good)
Two weeks: Cubicle now inhabited by new employee...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
The Rabbi: The unlucky are nothing more than a frame of reference for the lucky. You are unlucky, so I may know that I am not. Unfortunately the lucky never realizes they are lucky until it's too late. Take yourself for instance; yesterday you were better off than you are off today but it took today for you to realize it. But today has arrived and it's too late. You see? People are never happy with what they have. They want what they had, or what someone else has.
from Lucky Number Slevin. That movie has superb dialogue. Can anyone think of a quote that beats this.
What's this, then? "Romanes eunt domus"? People called Romanes, they go, the house?
It says, "Romans go home."
No it doesn't. What's the latin for "Roman"? Come on, come on.
Vocative plural of "Romanus" is?
Er, er, "Romani".
"Eunt"? What is "eunt"? Conjugate the verb, "to go".
Er, "Ire". Er, "eo", "is", "it", "imus", "itis", "eunt".
So, "eunt" is...?
Third person plural present indicative, "they go".
But, "Romans, go home" is an order. So you must use...?
Aaagh. The imperative.
Aaaagh. Er, er, "i".
How many Romans?
Aaaaagh. Plural, plural, er, "ite".
"Domus"? Nominative? "Go home" is motion towards, isn't it?
Aaagh. Not the dative, not the dative. Er, er, accusative, "Domum".
But "Domus" takes the locative, which is...?
Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.
