Good, because a Grammar Nazi would have written "Boni Amici, Boni Libri, et Conscientia Somnolenta".

You're right, it is pretty funny that they have such high opinions of their work. It's just I can't listen to that song without cringing.

Why did the communist only use lowercase letters?
Because he was opposed to capitalism.

Since my slogan seems to be grammaticly incorrect in Latin, can some one translate my national slogan to "correct" latin? It's in english on my profile... but for now, I'll go with the english version of my flag.

I feel like I'm getting worse.

Not that it wasn't to be expected. My diet has roughly consisted of meat and energy drinks, with the occasional bag of chips. And I work nights, getting roughly 5 hours of sleep per night on average.

I'll probably die by 30 at this rate, but that's how it goes.

Oh, gosh.
Now I'm having flashbacks to when The Rich Port had the "Latin" (note the quotation marks) for "Fuck yeah, Sea King!" in his sig and it constantly drove me crazy; there's no way to translate "Fuck yeah" into Latin, so I just had to grin and bear it since I couldn't tell him and offer a better translation.

That's what I get for eating something our puppy licked.
A young merc terminally ill with cancer, I signed on for a government "human weapon" program: Weapon X. They got rid of the cancer like they promised...sorta...by melding an advanced healing factor to it. The gruesome experiments left me physically and mentally scarred, so they put me in a mental ward where the guards held a dead pool. I escaped and rose to infamy, partly a hero.

For falling in love with a physical avatar of Death, I was cursed with life. I pissed off a divine power so that I could be with her again, but it failed. After I got struck down by some powerful lighting, I came back to life...as a breathing corpse. Fuck.
