    so to keep your mind actice your meant to learn one new thing every day. after a discussion in chat about the discovery of uranus i figured we should all learn something new each day.

    This prob wont catch on and ill just look like a fool (no change there then) but ill post in it!!

    ok so today was the day uranus was discovered. it was by a british astonomer called Frederick William Herschel. this was in 1781.

    (thank you BBC) :tongue:

    anyone else learn anything today

    Today I learnt that making Cosplay kits are no walk in the park.
    Anyone else here do cosplay at all?
  5. I learned the origins of the concept of/the word "Hell", and it has nothing valid at all to do with some who condemnn others to it, predicting they will go there. It was a mis-translation. It's got quite the history...

    *is totally innocent and never uses such bad language*

    *tuts at joe for teaching her such filthy words - in 2 different languages!*
  15. My pesonal fave is schweinhundt (few other words in any language match that one! Though the literal translation does it no justice whatsoever)

    And ya, I also found this great thread today! :smile:

    And I learned how to say "You're Welcome" in Irish Gaelic (literally, "a hundred thousand welcomes to you/before you")

    Céad míle fáilte romhat!

    As native German speaker I must protest against the misuse of the German language. :D
  17. Not misuse - Educational! (I swear - and it rolls off my tongue - in English, German, Italian, French, and a few choice words in Egyptian and Arabic - very therapeutic). Und du? Nur auf Deutsch?
