Mimi's Own Nightly Open Thread - Because I Need One

I just could curse against everything. If you have an urge to curse about something, you can do it here. Every Night.

In German: Ich fühle mich verarscht. Von der Technologie.

So, translate that. Is it 'I feel ripped through/by the technology'?

Mutti, Omi, I want my old technology back. An answering machine with a tape in it. I want a smart phone with no smart ghosts in pants (for sure) messing around and offering all the crap and nonsense like an erupting volcano on my telephone's display.

Yeah, I got a new phone and I hate it. I can't give it back. It is a disaster. Not only am I enslaved by this fucking technology, I am driven insane too. I can't even shut off that darn thing. And it makes bad noises.

So tonight I enjoy fucking all techs and insulting all of them, aside the ones who reside on C99p.

Ich habe gescprochen, sagte Winnetou.

So curse away, I wanna know all the bad words you use when cursing.

So help me God.

the expletives come rolling out like a volcano spewing
the guts of hell -- ugly

It's somehow purging the psyche of constipated emotions
why hold it in?

smart phones are not smart
they make people dumb

Borrow teenager for an hour. Get them to change the sounds you hate and then show you how to do what you need to do on the phone. There must be some living nearby.

Dang! Gosh darn it! Jeebus! Sheet! Mother zucker! Dagnabit! Sonuvabeach!

My wife makes up for it, though. She curses like a sailor.

Tends to be a side effect of blue dream haze.

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

My advice would be to sell your new phone on the German equivalent of Craig’s List if you don't need it, and the old one is still functioning, Or as Granma suggested find someone to show you how you can keep it simple.

My favourite swear word has always been ‘fuck’ or ’shit’! ’Scheisse’ might have been the first German word I learned ; ).

so you can well imagine what my normal speech is like. I have been known to peel the paint off the walls on occasion...

If I attempt to learn a new language, the first thing I always learn is that language's collections of obscenities. Interestingly, I also find that the obscenities are usually the last things I forget as I *forget* the rest of the new language (I am, after all, an American). I guess language really is about usage: if you don't use the words, you lose 'em.

Aw, дерьмо.

I have one language that I really do want to look into in detail. One time back in the early 80s, I worked with a Hungarian engineer named Janos Sczmylk (not a typo). He smoked like a chimney and pounded the keyboard, muttering to himself continuously in very agitated Hungarian. And damned if *every word* in that language didn't at least sound like an obscenity, to my delicate ears...

My kinda language! Sign me up! At least then I could finally go to Budapest (and even, perhaps, by blimp)...

And on edit: a hat-tip to Monty Python for the Hungarian-English phrasebook sketch, which predated my meeting good ol' Janos by a decade.
