Of all the forums I go on (that's a lot) this one has to be the best. Best behaved members, no power-happy mods, no spammers, no 4chan memes (save the cat incident), etc.

Good job Crowley!

Yea well your close but to say first of all thats not russian, thats kindof a stereotype since russian is more known than Ukrainian, which it actually is. It means Ukraine has not died yet (which is the beginning of the national anthem) and long live the potato for us spudfiles members and all spudgunners out there. So if this doesnt point out the obvious, i am ukrainian, but i live in the U.S. But sorry to get off topic. This is a great thing that we can now refer to. Nice job :)

Yea that is true but the thing is that most current online translators will not give you a accurate translation therefore you dont know what they maybe saying. Also there is alot of slang that countries use as thier vernacular language so a translator would not be able to translate that. For example, i know in Ukraine that they call the bathroom "toilet" (except in a more eastern european accent) but the real word for it is loznichky, if you could say that. So it wouldnt really matter because i think that if you dont really know what it means, it shouldnt really bother you. If they would really like to make you mad that person would say it in english so you understand. Nice though i have heard that phrase b4 but its nothing that can be translated in a online translator.

EDIT: what you said is reflexive in eastern european countries so other eastern europeans can understand it. Also that font is 1.5. I checked it in microsoft word.

That's quite ironic if you're reading it as an English speaker... says something of what cabbage soup is like.
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

Well i guess i can mention this since its educational.
You cannot translate a sentence by using each seperate word. You have to translate it by the whole sentence. Also Ще is pronounced shche with the "e" sounding the same as the "e" in men. The meaning of the word can be reflexive depending how you use it in a sentence.

To prove what i was saying about online translators, try translating english to Russian what cabbage soup is. You will see that it says суп капусты while you think it would say Ще. What "суп капусты" means in direct translation is "soup cabbage".

Ah guys, this isn't language school here.

Going a bit off-topic is alright, as long as you turn it back around.
