    Non-English words you like

    schadenfreude

    Main Entry: scha·den·freu·de
    Pronunciation: \ˈshä-dən-ˌfrȯi-də\
    Function: noun
    Usage: often capitalized
    Etymology: German, from Schaden damage + Freude joy
    Date: 1895
    : enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others

    I like how it sounds, plus the Germans have got to have all kinds of crazy going on to come up with one word that encapsulates "cracking up when someone drops a stack of dishes".

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Bon Jour

    After I had dutifully followed the family into the Sephora store in Paris, I was constantly approached by model-class young ladies with samples all saying Bon Jour. It was a good day.

    pgoat, can you explain your tattoo? my chinese is very elementary.

    it looks like these are the characters: 馬恋男

    ma lian nan - what does that mean? hopefully there's a better meaning than the literal translation of each character: horse love man?

    Also, why is written in traditional characters but is written in it's simplified form ()?

    I like the word 朋友 (pengyou, pronounced: pung-yo).
    It means friend. I often mix the word into English and refer to my friends as "my pengyou's."

    Ex1: Hey, pengyou, how are you doing?
    Ex2: Honey, I'll be home late tonight. I'm meeting up with some pengyou's after work.

    Actually, I think there is a user on these forums with "pengyou" for a screen name.

    Someone needed to state the obvious, even if it's more than a few "hunnert" years old.

    pgoat - does that mean "meow"?

    I like the word meow. Cats all meow in the same language. They're gonna take over the world someday.
