Noobers Dwarven Hammer / Are they true?
« on: March 01, 2007, 12:02:50 PM »
Our English teacher gave us some really strange paper with even more strangelaws in foreign countries and told us that we have to discuss them with our classmates. They're really strange. And I still don't know if they are true or not  :( Here they are:

1. In China, when you use chopsticks you shoouldn't leave them upright in the bowl. It brings bad luck.
(espeacially when you fall asleep on that bowl. ouch!)

2. In Sweden, if you drink and drive, you have to go to prison for six months.
(I didn't quite understand this - if I drink anything, will they send me into prison?)

3. In Argentina, when you got on a train you should shake hands with all the other people in the carriage.
(when you do this, your hands must be really sore, don't they?)

4. In France, you are not allowed to call a pig 'Napoleon'.
(heh, I guess this similar to calling a pig 'Jan Amos Komenský' or 'Tomáš Garigue Masaryk'  ;D /anyone know them?/)

5. In Scotland, boys have to wear a kilt to school.
(do they have to wear underwear? ;D I've heard that the true Scottish men don't wear it  ???)

6. In Brazil, you should never make the 'OK' sign with your thumb. It's very rude.

7. In Germany, every office must have a view of the sky.

8. In the Middle East, you shouldn't admire anything in your hosts' home. They will feel that they have to give it to you.

9. In Singapore, you mustn't eat chewing-gum. It's against the law.
(quite useful law; they don't have to unstick all that used bubble gum from the side-walks)

10. In India, you shouldn't thank your hosts at the end of the meal. It is an insult.

11. In Japan, women mustn't wear trousers to the work.

12. In the UK, parent's don't have to send their children to school. They can teach them at home if they prefer.
(well, although I don't like early rising because of school, I prefer teaching by teacher than teaching by my mother  :D)

13. In Russia, men should take off their gloves to shake somebody's hand.
(can be problem if you're right in the Siberia)

14. In Iceland, you mustn't take dogs into the city centre.
(uhm, there can live dogs? ::))

15. In Thailand, you shouldn't touch a person's head (even of a child). The head is sacred.

16. In Australia, women mustn't sit on the top of a bus, only downstairs.

17. In Samoa, it is against the law for a man to forget his wife's birthday.

18. In Switzerland, you aren't allowed to clean your car or cut the grass on a Sunday.

19. In the USA, you shouldn't tip taxi drivers. It is considered an insult.

20. In Italy, if you give flowers you should give them in odd numbers, e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9. It is bad luck to give, for example, two flowers.

Well, I know that number 4 and 7 are true. But the others? Anyone knows the right answer?

Noobers Dwarven Hammer / Would you understand?
« on: January 24, 2007, 10:49:47 AM »
In one of our English lessons teacher gave us this. After reading I almost fell from my chair.  It's verbatim translation from Czech, so called Czenglish. Read and find out!

- Good day, Mr. professor.

- Hello, John. How have you yourself?

- Well, thank you. Nothing much, but it goes. Tomorrow I do an exam from English.

- Really? So break your neck! - But you look very tiredly, John. Are you in order?

- Yes, is to me well, only to me hurts head. We had yesterday a little steamer and I drank much beers and greens.

- For God! Do you go to home now?

- No, to the cinema. They give the new Arnold Schwarzenegger.

- Likes he to you?

- Yes, my friend eats him.

- And what your brother? Long I him didn't see.

- Peter? He sits home and rolls his hams. But in Monday he goes to work. Then he will have after birds. - Oh, goes to me eighteen. Good-bye!

- Hello! and much luck!

So, would you understand?  ;D

Why did you called this mod "The Undying" ? I know, silly question, but I can't help myself :oops: . If you don't like this topic, just rub it out ;-) I won't be angry ;-)

Tsujatha Melalor Romance / Will be some translantions?
« on: October 31, 2005, 06:47:03 AM »
You know, Sillara, I have some friends, who don't  learn english and I'm quite sure, they want play BG with Tsujatha, too. So, if you want and if you send me materials to translation, I would try translate it. (and I mean it seriously, don't let confuse  yourself, with my computer AND with open dictionary I'm quite able :D )
