There's this guy Lex from Russia posting photos he colorized in the photo section of the site. These pictures look awesome, the guy is really an artist. Haven't got a clue how it works...

Very good idea, but no one is allowed to spell words from his native language.

First russian I learned was something my grandfather told me: Руки высоко! (ruky werch or so) meaning "hands up". It was the first he learned in Russia in 1941...

This is actually the ''Руки вверх"/Rukie v verch -(hands up) .
Our soldiers also were studing the GErmans right in front, many learned from Germans pows.
The one of the first needed phrace for russians were sounding something like "Hendehoh" (Hands up) or "Shnell" ( be quick).
The civils of occuped cities have learned well the famous "Rusish shwaine"( russian pig)
In the 1944-45 the new phrases have comed for to use- "Hitler Kaput", "Urr" ( Watch)and Froulen/Frau( madam)

I know some swear words!

In any case, I was speaking of natives that cannot spell their OWN languages, including myself...

You guys are way too uptight...

And I know just enough German that I might be able to learn it if I were immersed in Germany for a few months...

I think to know that the russians adopted the german word "Butterbrot" (something like a sandwich) in their common vocabulary.
You're right, these were the common words of the germans to learn firstly back then: Rukie v verch, Idi ssuda!, karasho, dawai!, raboti!, Russki Soldat? Never mind the spelling though (-:

It's "Hande hoch", with an umlaut or diaeresis (= .. ) above the a in Hande.

Spell it?

You're struggling to speak it. :D

Then again, what can we expect of a nation which broke away from the mother tongue because of the price of tea and has drunk cawfee ever since in protest, and has produced such nonsense as trunk where correct English is boot; hood for bonnet; train station for railway station; negatory for no; 'at this point in time' for now; and has county, city and state police competing for the same work which in primitive countries like England and Australia are done by one police force. :D ;)

As for spelling, what idiot calls a spelling competition a spelling bee?

You don't hear of a Miss Universe competition being called a beauty bee or even a tit bee or a beaver bee, do you? No. Even if they should be. Or bee. :D

Which leads me to the whole point of my carefully considered and highly informative post, which is that we should have a beauty competition, entitled the Beaver Tit Bee.

This will, for the first time in the history of beauty competitions, be open to beavers as well as tits (a type of bird), and bees.

By adding beavers to the birds and the bees, we shall help children better to understand awkward explanations beginning with the phrase 'When a man loves a woman very much ... ' :D

Sorry we drink coffee in the morning instead of beer like the good folk of Melbourne. Well, actually, now you've done it! The combination of it being Friday, me eating salty corn chips, and just finishing a 3 mile run has now given me an extreme hankering for an Aussie beer like Coopers (which I can't find unless I go boutique pub downtown).


and has produced such nonsense as trunk where correct English is boot;

Well then, do you wear trunks on your feet?


hood for bonnet;

Do you call your gansta's bonnets then? I thought they were the Chavs pdf is always running from!


train station for railway station;

No one takes those things anymore anyways. Actually, that's not true. Amtrak is now inundated with riders because we're now getting the Euro gas prices...


negatory for no; 'at this point in time' for now;

I can't say I hear that all that often...


and has county, city and state police competing for the same work which in primitive countries like England and Australia are done by one police force. :D ;)

LOL My town has two police forces (one for the "village," the other for the whole town). This in addition to the county, state, and occasional federal police in the vicinity...

Yes, it is madness...

Well, apparently our beauty contestants would be more aptly called beaver-bees. Check out the denoued Ms. Nevada:

The British do have superior beauty queens, er, beaver bee cadets, or whatever though:

That's about the best English Americans speak.

Although, in your case, I think a slightly less-glass-cutting-than-Hepburn voice might help. :D

There are no good folk in Melbourne

It's full of Australians, fer Chrissake! :D

Try Coopers Pale Ale, Cascade Pale Ale, James Squires' anything ... or have we had this discussion before?

No.

Over my foot.

Well, it's only six inches, but I like to tell people it's a foot. ;)

Trunks are Speedos are bathers are togs are what covers our foot, or six inches. Here's me wearing mine when I was slightly younger, and less ripped. :D

Not to mention campus police in universities, which adds an intellectual layer to your many layers of policing. :D

Police generally keep out of universities here, in case they run into better educated people who are often dumber than most of our police. And that's only the academics. (Or 'faculty' in American English. ;) ) :D

She'd change her orientation if she walked a mile in my boots.

Or just tried going a foot in my trunks. :D

We had Porters rather than Police where I was at uni (http://www.pet.cam.ac.uk). One of them retired at the same time as I left - he'd been in the 8th Army at Alamein/through Italy (I can't remember which). This was only 4 years ago too - don't mess with Vic!
Having said that, the Head Porter when I started was ex-police and still referred to them as his "colleagues". We didn't really like him and were pretty happy when he was replaced by Gerald (ex-Tankie).

Used to be a bit the same here when I was at uni in the seventies, but only in the residential colleges.

Although I was never in a residential college, I remember a very calm but also very disconserting - he was calm to the extent that he was frightening - Jock porter who drank in our pub (he could drink a keg of beer without any apparent change in demeanour) and who had been in something like the Black Watch in WWII who, after discovering that I was unusual in that era in having military service, instructed me in the fine art of applying Vaseline to the face before shaving to get a shave which took the whiskers off below the skin. :D

Then again, the Catholic colleges were different. I know, because my wife was in one and we were courting then. I'd rather deal with a drunken psychotic Commando than a feral nun out to defend the virginity of every girl in sight and carefully monitoring curfew. At least Commandos had to sleep some time.

The rest of the uni just got on with things, without thinking about security or police etc in daily affairs.

Now we have limited security people, but nothing like the US situation where in many unis they have campus police running around booking people for drinking under age (as American livers apparently develop slower than those of normal human beings so they can't be trusted with grog until they're 21 :D, although apparently they have superior fine motor skills so they can drive cars - automobiles in the US where a short word is never used where a longer one will do :D - from about 16 where the rest of the world waits a bit longer :confused:)

Alas, we've also had some intended mass murders by nutcases which have altered the attitude of university managements, but it's still a very low key security situation here. As it should be.

I also do a great Bogart and can recite entire dialogue from "The African Queen"...

I think we have. Probably in a thread having nothing to do with beer. In any case, I'll have to find it first...

Although they do serve Coopers at a pseudo-Australian themed restaurant mall chain of "Outback Steakhouse."

Along with reasonably, consistently good steaks. Though unspectacular ones...

Oi! Americans have many problems today for geographical impairment to not being able to answer basic trivia on embarrassing foreign TV shows to electing stupid pResidents repeatedly...

But one thing I am proud of is that we do indeed wear real swim trunks to the beach and never Speedos (which are referred to as "banana hammocks") unless a man is in some sort of competition.

Besides, these are the new Speedos:

http://www.official-merchandise.net/productimages/3152med.jpg

Which have sort of become the equivalent of drugs in cycling since they give modern swimmers and unfair advantage and that is why every other day a new record is broken...

I went to school at a time when they transitioned from essentially "rent-a-cops" that maybe were armed with mace (a weapon far too potent for their level of competence) to actual Glock pistols which made everyone pretty nervous...

In any case, in New York state at least, the university police are now regulated by the State Police...
