Butterflies or something......

Thought I'd start a new post on something that isn't loaded with political/partisan/moral/theological strife.......

I like butterflies......
I have a garden in the summer (although this year I was a bit too lazy) and I love watching the butterflies flutter through it. My dog likes butterflies too....she always tries to "catch" them....snap!! So far she hasn't been lucky.....she also tries to catch flies around the house, and hornets (ouch!)....it's pretty hilarious....she runs around jumping up ...

Lucky Break

I have gone to a few used-book stores that claim to have a good classics section.
I was disappointed by the selection and the price.
Yesterday I was at a discount store browsing through the books, not looking for any book in particular and I found a good copy of First Greek Book by JWW. $0.31.
This little blurp may be meaningless to you, but I wanted to tell someone.

Stem-cell research?

Now I know this is a very difficult subject to discuss as I imagine some people's emotions might be very strong on this subject, but it's also very interesting and relevant for the world we live in today. Many countries have approved stem-cell research and are already looking to cure many diseases.
This raises many questions I think. No only if it is morally correct, although that is of fundamental importance too, but also if ...

I have an idea: Why don't the Blue states join Canada?


I think this would be a win-win situation for all parties concerned, including the Red states. Here me out...

The Blue states in becoming Canadian provinces would receive free healthcare from cradle-to-grave, affordable college education, and NO MORE WARS, among the many benefits.

Canada, in turn, will have acces to a warm year-round climate (i.e.,California -- Hi, Jeff!), an educated, liberal populace, and many other goodies which fail to come to mind as I ...

Wordbase for learning greek vocabulary and grammar


There is a great program specially designed for learning greek vocabulary and grammar. Is uses beta code, and allows to create own dictionaries.

After choosing (producing your own) dictionary, you can test yourself or play hangman :D . I found it very useful for acquairing quite a big numbers of words for tests during my studies (ca. 500-800 words each time).

Hey, Noam Chomsky is on HBO tonight.


When was the last time the brilliant scholar and political activist Noam Chomsky was on an American TV channel (I know -- it's HBO, not TV)? Exactly, a very, very long time ago.

Well, he's on tonight at 11 pm eastern time on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. It should be interesting.

Gerunds and supines

How would I say "I have come to kill you" with a gerund or a 'um'-supine? Te necatum veni sound quite odd to me, so does Te necandi causa veni. You could of course say Veni ut te necem, but I'd like to know how to say it differently.

I need another translation...benissimus? hehe

this is kinda like a paragraph.

"My love for you is unconditional and undying. I would wish nothing about you to be changed, as you are perfect in my eyes. I would do anything for you, even run through the gates of hell itself. Would you spend the rest of your life with me?"

any help would be fine...her textbook says benissimus is a pro latin-translator, so i guess i'm looking to him moreso. thanks! ...
