I am just kind of interested in Latin, so that I could annoy my teachers. I dont really know from were I got those, I just kind of look through my word book or search the english word on the Internet until I find the correct one. Do not always trust the first result, cuz it could be wrong, so you should try at lest two websites to be sure that it is correct!

Consilium callidum est. -It is a clever plan.
Est tam callidum ut vinci bis. -It is too clever to fail twice.
Si caudatum, mustela sit. -It is so clever, you could slap a tail on it
and call it a weasel.
Hoc est consilium farcimen. -This is a weinie plan.


Te mortuo, heres tibi sim? -When you die, can I have your stuff?

Its alright....But couldn't someone just use a translator? Anyway onto the point im actually posting for, Doelago you might want to remove the N word from your list on the black translation, racism is not allowed afterall.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Um... Dark Angel, there's only one 'G' in the word above to which you are referring, pronounced "nee-GAIR" and has nothing to do with race or rascist speech, its the latin name for the color black (like the background color of this message board). The word you are thinking of has two G's and no other definition.


ETA-
As for translator software, you could, but it inevitably will not be right. There are conjugation issues that arise with Latin that are rarely built into such programs.
