A most useful word: catatartarosis

So, I've been reading Apollodorus recently - sometimes useful when you're slogging your way through Hesiod - and I ran across a wonderful word.

katatartaro/w v.tr. to throw down into Tartarus

This could be useful in the scumbag spammer challenge:

katatartarw/qhti, w) kwlufista/!

Succurite O Sodales (S. O. S)

Hey you all,

I think the Frensh can use our help right now. In France they are planning to stop teaching Latin and Greek in high school! We all now that would be a shame and a sign of immorality. We are all believers in the advantages of Latin and Greek, so I think we all have the moral duty to sign the following petition to keep Latin and Greek in the High School system! ...

sentence translation

Hi, I need help translating this sentence:
"...quibus freti Romani urbem ab initiis parvis ad tantum imperium protulerant."
I know what all of the words mean but I'm not sure how "quibus freti" fits in or what it means... so I'm not sure how to piece it together.

Thanks

We Know Just About Nothing Again!

Over the past month, I had a thread going called Proof That We know Just About Nothing. I claimed that since anything was possible, no one could certainly know something (a fact). For example, my famous monkey living in the center of the earth controlling gravity. No one can know for certain that a monkey does not live in the earth controlling gravity no matter how hard they try and think. But recent posts have ...

Grrr

Today I was skipping some lessons because they were doing some pointless careers activity. Building Windchimes I hear. I was with 2 other boys also of the same opinion. Walking down the coridoor the seriously fat annoying arrogant teacher (it has some kind of special post as a head of some age group) came past us. "Why aren't you in your lessons?"
"What's that? Yeah...we're going now" continuing to walk past the pile of flab. ...

Arrian Anabasis Reader

Has anyone ever come across an Arrian Anabasis reader which was printed before 1923?

It would be fun to have some Greek about Alexander the Great available for reading - but I just can't find a copy anywhere.

the origin of the word apocalypse

Hi, how are you? Thanks for taking the time.

Is this word latin in origin?

If it is latin could you break it down in to its root words?

Sorry for bothering you guys with this but I've searched greek, latin, hebrew, and aramaic web sights and could not find a thing.

I believe in my own self... Credo in ??? ego

After reading "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco, I found that I enjoy the latin very much. It is a magical sounding language.

I understand that the Christians' Credo is "Credo in unum Deum", or "I believe in the one God." Now, I cannot state the same, since there's only one being or person in which I believe strongly -- and this is me, or more precisely: my ego, my own thinking self. ...
