    Default Phrases

    Over the last few years, I have noticed a plethora of people who speak other languages, whether or not those languages are of their native tongue or not.

    So, speak other languages? I think it would be great for you guys to post random or not random phrases from a language you know. Feel free to put it in it's original alphabet, but it is still appreciated if you make it so I and others can actually read it.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    I worked with this Russian woman, and she'd throw out some phrases from the homeland occasionally. The one I remember most was, "Everybody mastrubates their own way."

    german: "da könnt ja jeder furtz kommen und stinken!" - if some request is uncalled for, if someone wants something without having permission, right or propper authority you might say: [no way, if that was grantet, then] any fart may come around and stink as he pleases to.

    What a great first phrase to be given! Because I studied German, this will definitely stick.
