Jumping on the non-English bandwagon [Nov. 30th, 2007|11:15 pm]
Doctor Who Cat Macros


[Tags|, , , , , , ]

Sadly, the vast majority of the conversations I've had in Russian class sounded exactly like this.

ETA: I forgot to mention this earlier, but I would like to express how enormously (and pleasantly) surprised I was to learn that roflbot supports cyrillic text in two or three of its fonts. Is for the win.

IT IS SO TRUE!! That's all the ever happens in Russian class, ever. Except when we have to explain our majors for the thousandth time.

Srsly, this is made of win.

So it's not just my class!

Srsly, I think all future conversations were instantly doomed the moment we figured out how to say "I am a cat."

From the moment I first saw Three, I knew it had to be done.

I don't know a bit of Russian, but it looks funny anyway. ;) I think it's Ten's expression at the end. I don't think that could ever NOT be funny.

(Though if anyone would like to post a translation, please do! :D)

Basically -
I don't understand!
O rly?
Ya rly.
No wai!

God, this cheers me up a bit about having so much Russian coursework to do...

Aargh, I know. Finals are in two weeks, and I can't even remember the verbs for eating anything other than breakfast. At least I'm getting some use out of it, y/y? Because macro-making is definitely a valid reason to learn an entire language. *shifty eyes*

Yeah, cosmic_llin's translation is right on (though the spelling is better in the actual macros because I didn't trust myself to be able to reproduce lolcats in Russian and still have it be comprehensible to anyone). Well, I guess it's not a literal translation, but it's what I meant.

Thanks! It was one of the first ones I did with full animation.

How's my translation? I've only had one semester of Russian class. I don't suppose it'd be very easy to screw up "o rly, ya rly, no wai", though.

LOL WIN. :D This comm has become pleasantly multi-lingual since I've last been here. I like it.

I'm glad the modpost jogged the comm into multi-lingual mode, or I might never have gotten around to doing this....

Woez, I guessed that without even being able to read Cyrillic stuff!

ihasatardis, teaching the ignorant masses foreign languages! I may become multilingual just from reading this comm! :)

Hahaha, brilliant! The little "I don't understand" really makes it for me. Perfect.

holy shit.
"да, правда!" is probably the best thing ever. i might have to go around saying it ALL THE TIME. like, really, i don't know why it's so amazing, it just jumps out as "hai guyz, this is funny!" well done!

ps- the extent of my russian knowledge is such that without knowing this was an "o rly?" macro, the "no wai!" part would have flown right over my head. reading? totally fine. speaking? um, not so much :/ should get on that (again).

I think my Russian teacher might have regretted teaching us "правда", because we quickly came to the conclusion that it was the only word we really needed to know. "правда?" "правда!" "не правда!" "правда!!"

We only just learned "не может быт" a week or two ago, but it's quickly come to be just as beloved as "правда." Anyway, I am, quite frankly, amazed at how much of a foreign language one can learn in just three or four months. College language courses are supposedly a lot harder than the ones in high school because they're so much faster, but honestly, high school Spanish bored me to tears precisely because we went over the same material so many times, and I just can't learn well when I'm bored. And now, of course, I can't even say one sentence in Spanish. I think I erased it from my brain out of spite.

Awww...I'm kind of worried that'll happen to me later on, even though I'm considering making it my second major now. I know my mom's lost almost all of her Spanish.
