" He's not dead, he's just Electroencepholographically challenged" "Cogito Eggo Sum" (I think I am a Waffle in Latin) "We are a paranoid Schizophrenic and we outnumber you two to one!" "If everything is coming towards you, you're in the wrong lane" By the way... sorry for all the separate posts

Just out of curiosity, what is the correct translation? (I heard it second hand from the son of a Latin professor)

I'm not too good, but I can translate what you wrote to: (think) (me) (am) Ego has been corrupted, probably to infer 'waffle' - for which there isn't a classical Latin word. I'm sure the forms of the words are also grammatically incorrect, but I was hoping for someone who knew Latin better to explain... L

in the sentence just eggo is wrong... its a quoth from rené descartes 'cogito ergo sum' means 'i think, thus i am'

oops, I guess I got it wrong, it's apparently "Ego reputo sum Eggo" I don't know how I got Cogito Eggo sum from that... Thanks for noticing by the way

Does it seem strange to you that the prefix "poly" means many, and ticks are tiny bloodsucking insects, and when you combine them you get "politics"? If the opposite of "pro" is "con", then what is the opposite of "progress? I used to be sane, but I got better If life gives you llamas, make llamanade Isn't it disconcerting that what Doctors do is called "practice"?

No such as thing as "a bit 80's"! Any way to get money is a good way to get money my friend! Especially in this economy! Lol saying that's 80's is like saying: An optimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half full". A pessimist sees half a pint of milk, he says "it is half empty" I see a half a pint of milk, I say, "That's so 80s!"
