Re: Anybody ever made a YouTube video in Latin?

Well done for starting a youtube Latin channel. I am not going to engage with your arguments but perhaps it would be helpful next time you record something to include the text at the bottom of the video. Also perhaps you need to show more than just your head it looks a bit odd with all that ceiling...

Re: An Essay about Vegetarianism

What do you think is the best way of saying "in their intestines"? I've tried "in suis lactibus", however, I am not sure if that's unambiguous ("lactibus" could also be ablative plural of "lac", to mean "in the milks", right?).

I guess it is understood as "affairs." Many say vigiles for police . You may find these pages helpful.
