aaaahhh It's good to be home! I saw lots of nice euro-spec Bimmers, and the worst that happened because of my being an american was some dirty looks. On Saturday, we were driving to the airport and we ended up mising the check in time by about 4 minutes because of traffic and we went to the wrong terminal. We ended up driving to a nice hotel about an hour away. In the driveway, there was an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage, Two Porsches, a couple of Mercedes and Lots of hot BMWs. After Dinner we went out for a walk, and there in the middle of the parking lot was a Bentley Arnage and a Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge Stradale. I nearly Pi$$ed my pants. I took some pics, so when they get developed I'll find a scanner and post them. One day I saw a TVR, that was exciting. I didn't see any Elises, which was kinda sad.
"Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam"
I don't know much latin, but I'm gonna have a shot at this: I live to throw. If you will not give all to me, I will throw you towards (????????).
"I have a catapult. If you don't give me all your money, I will throw a rock at you."
It's a rough translation. I found it online somewhere. It came about when my friend and I tried to build a trebuchet. Would have worked, but I had to work, so we never got around to finishing it. Someday, though....Someday.
I always hated Latin class more than anything, but I like that. For the three years I took it, there was always something called 'Classics day', in which there was a trebouchet competition. Those things can throw stuff so far. If you do a search on google for "how to build a trebouchet' I'm sure lots of things will come up.
