These apparently arent the benefits of a classical education

Postby Ruu on Tue Sep 04, 2012 12:09 am

I have been cycling rather a lot recently, and have been thinking of forming my own cycling team. To be honest, this has become somewhat secondary to the quest to find something entertaining in latin to place upon a cycling Jersey (full disclosure - am not particularly adept at cycling, and have little interest in a cycling team beyond creating a jersey with cryptic ancient wisdom and wearing it in public).

Are there any latin scholars available to critique my somewhat dubious attempts at Latin before I commit my stream of consciousness to an article of clothing and parade my ignorance to the world in general?

Team Name:
In Volantis Inquisicio: The Flying Inqusition

Fun Latin Stuff to put on a Jersey:

In Vesco Veritas: feed the truth/eat the truth/in eating, truth

In triticis, veritas: In wheat, truth
Triturabis Haeretici: Thresh the Heretics

volantis triticeus veritas: wheaten flying Truth
triticeus veritas: Truth sown in wheat

To be honest, the "thresh the heretics" line is nice but means nothing without a wheat-based reference, but "In Vesco Veritas" is, I think, the best latin-based line I can possibly think up, assuming it really means "Eat the truth". Which it probably doesn't.

Discuss.

PS - yes, I really do think that 7 years is an appropriate length of time to sit and wait before posting a thread. Suck it newbies.

Great suggestions. Unfortunately, all the quotes i'd be able to suggest would come from Google. :haha:

I could post some of my particular favorites from Henry Beard's Latin for all Occasions or Latin for Even More Occasions but they are notty and banned. :haha:

My personal favorite is Semper Ubi Sub Ubi.

Always wear underwear.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.
-- Dr. Joy

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

I like it, but it isn't exactly the most grammatically correct Latin though (and I don't want to insult any latinos by messing up their language). "Veni, Vidi, Voro" (I came, I saw, I ate like a pig) is pretty close though...

But I've got a catty, Pieces!

"Veni, Vidi, Voro"


Voro is 1st person singular present tense. Should be voravi to match the other two.

Centurion: What's the Perfect of "vorare"? Come on, come on!
Brian: (uncertain) "voravi", sir.
Centurion: Goes like?
Brian: "amare" sir.
Centurion: Now write it down a hundred times.
Brian: Yes sir, thank you sir, hail Caesar, sir.
