You're lucky you've got a dad that understands it somewhat. My dad simply doesn't get it at all. No matter how much I try and explain it. He still wants his house to go up.

My dad thinks I'm a loser because I didn't buy. I think he wishes I had bought in, just like my brother in law. (who's on an interest only mortgage by the way, and on the verge of negative equity)

Does he mean the housing market is "f**ked" because 1. they are going down, or

2. they are overpriced

Sounds very similar to my dad, in both awareness and style of language.

How about translating the quote into Latin and using it as our motto on a shield depicting a house leaning into an abyss as the foundations crumble beneath it?

Seconded

@p.p.:

perfututum.

Fututum = f*cked (passive past participle of futuere)

'Per-' as a prefix denotes 'throughout' as in permeate.

So perfututum = f*cked right through; f*cked real good; f*cked six ways till Wednesday; etc

;)

What does "Coito" then? Or perhaps my brother was having a laugh when he said "Coito ergo sum" meant "I f**k, therefore I am"?

That's not Latin. Where's the Romans and the pesky Belgians?

amo amas amat amamus amatus amant

amabo amabis amabit amabimus amabitus amabunt

amabam amabas amabat amabamus amabatus amabant

amavero amaveris amerverit amaverimus amaveritus amaverunt

Feck me, at last, I have forgotten the last two - after 47 years the indoctrination is beginning to fade.

Ahhh... Kennedy's Latin Primer

Amavi etc

Amaveram etc

out of curiosity, and in a different language, did you learn

Mauvais, mechante, villain, beau

Petit, haute, vieux, joli, gros

nouveau, gentile, jeune et bon

Grand et meilleur, vaste et longe

when state not motion 'tis they mean (I think)

Amazing how things stick for decades even when they are never used

It's all still in my head too

My latin master had a big stick called his ATT (Aid To Teaching)

If you didn't learn the reams of verbs and subjunctive tenses, he used to jab you in the stomach with it saying 'Non satis, worm'

Happy days! :blink:
