Darnit. Another language I cannot seem to read. I can attempt to transliterate it into English though, but it might not turn out well, don't mind me...

Mozhchete V Imet eschchze Mnogo Let

I probably butchered it. I have no idea what it means, but I can *somewhat* pronounce it.

Spasibo moi bolshie druzya!



*blinks* Fun to say, considering that most English words are extremely bland in character. Still, the content flies over my head.

Since I don't know Russian, I can at least transliterate something...

жаппe бирtждae Arctic Fox!

Belated Happy Birthday if that's what this is all about. To think I've been avoiding this thread because I didn't expect to understand any of it! :rolleyes:

Arctic Fox - Пожалуйста!

Я не знал, что Вы - русский. Конечно, Мурманск, является ключом. Я несколько тускл.

Я говорю маленького русского или говорю немного по-русски. Также, я читаю и понимаю русского.

However, my grammar is weak since I am out of practice.

For those wondering, I was following up on Arctic Fox's request in the Tiki (post #385) - "Бармен, водки пожалуйста. Я праздную! "

Я спросил (I asked) - что Вы празднуете? (What are you celebrating?)

I studied a little Russian and Bulgarian for my work. They are both beautiful languages and there is some fantastic literature and history from both countries. :smile:

What kind of work were you doing, if you don't mind my asking?

Well, my 0.02 $: since any theoretical physicist should know German to read the great masters in original, i'd say that each Nuclear Engineer should know his share of Russian.
Bulgarian is beyond my power of understanding.

:rofl:

Actually, I learned German and some Spanish, and I read a little technical French. Russian and Bulgarian are similar, I had a reason to learn both. The Kozloduy plant in Bulgarian uses Russian VVER technology.

I have also consulted on the weapons grade (WG) Pu to MOX program in the US with a parallel, but dysfunctional, program in Russia. :rolleyes:

And hopefully, I will get back to my study of Romanian, and several other languages, when I can find the time.

Commie? Commie?! That's Pinko to you... :D

Thanks, great cake! Mind if I pass it around the Tiki Bar?

*nevermind - Tiki's fallen off the page already.*
