Seconds including the hundredths and thousandths. Please. The above means literally nothing to me. You might as well have been writing it in Arabic code mixed with morse code mixed with un morse (walrus) to the power of 7 x Chinese food. :evil:

Edit: It's not that difficult! :x

:? I signed up on the 1st of January at one minute after midnight Greenwich Mean Time for Korean. :? Isn't that what you're asking for?


Clearly you don't understand the rules. I direct you to paragraph 92 dash Z to the power if six donkeys. There shall ye-eth be throned whilst king. Clear enough?

Ohhhh.. So it is like:
There was a Master come unto the earth, born in the holy land of Indiana, raised in the mystical hills east of Fort Wayne. The Master learned of this world in the public schools of Indiana, and as he grew, in his trade as a mechanic of automobiles. But the Master had learnings from other lands and other schools, from other lives that he had lived. He remembered these, and remembering became wise and strong, so that others saw his strength and came to him for counsel.

You might be getting somewhere. However, I'd lean more towards:
On n'établit pas une dictature pour sauvegarder une révolution. On fait une révolution pour établir une dictature.


traduit du livre 1984, par George Orwell. Oh, qu'ils sont si nombreuses, les coïncidences, croyez-vous pas ?

Translation:
George:
One doesn't establish a dictatorship to safeguard a revolution. One creates a revolution to establish a dictatorship.

Me:
Oh, there are so many coincidences, don't you think?

Thanks Elsa. I assumed as such, but your message when you started said Jan 2nd for me at my end due to my time zone, so I just needed to clarify. Hope your studies are going well!
