Bookstores

First off, my apologies to those people to whom I got a little out of hand earlier in another thread. I get a little excitable sometimes, especially regarding politics. I'm also used to more... aggressive?... forums, and am not completely used to the laidback style here.

Anywho.....

I was in a little hole-in-the-wall used bookstore this weekend, and was perusing the language section, when what to my wandering eyes did appear but.... a 1912 edition ...

A site very extensive in its contents of sacred as well as non sacred texts of different cultures. The Kalaevala, Ramayana, the epos of Gilgamesh, next to things such as text about neopaganism.

Miss World?! What a rip.

First of all there are probably about 100,000 girls in the world hotter than the winner here. She was just a classic blonde person and not really attractive just that stereotypical thing. Anyhow Ireland (the country of the winner) has nothing compared to the beauty of say Finland, and look how badly Finland is represented. I was disappointed with the Phillipines, as the girls there are simply fine, however Thailand, although bearing many females finer ...

Catullus

yet another latin translator..

http://www.levity.com/alchemy/latin/latintrans.html

This is more like one of the dictionaries, but it does it on the whole lump of words in the sentence. Could be also useful for checking one's own latin compsition and spelling. How accurate is it? I'm a total novice in latin and in no situation to judge. ;) Found this while looking for another latin dictionary site to ...

Quo iratus fio

Cur omnes in hoc foro non saepe nunc loquuntur? Quam ob rem forum hoc fit tardius? Antea amabam omnia verba e Populo textkitis venientia; nunc tamen est nihil amandum.

Fiat forum simile foro aliorum dierum acriusque. Si non ita faciatis, Deus me hortetur ut omnibus hic mulieribus quibusque hominibusque unam columbam sugentem mittam. Cognosco vos non amavisse fabulam illam in Agora dictam. Saevior sum.
