The Off-Topic Topic Thread

Recommended Posts

LOL, I guess in comparison to the way some languages express things, German can seem, well... Abrasive to the untrained ear at times. :)

I'm American, but when I see this:

It makes me giggle :D

This too, just trying to say it is rough for me, but fun to try:

But I know it's a specialty shop that sells ornaments for the hair in English.

But as bad as it can seem sometimes German has got nothing on the Russian language when it comes to abrasive lol :debile2:

Actually, when I think of it, are there any English or American words that make you guys laugh because of the translation in your native tongue?

Maybe add the Hungarian and Finnish names as well, just for some balance?

No pun intended against german ;) and yeah some of the hungarian stuff is even more off course so to say.

Hey Tactical Bat.

Looks like the Kraken needs to put in some overtime, I count 4 language based posts there.

*Affects an official type voice*

I'm pretty sure the guy with the torch was an engineer attempting to repair your tank, I think you were killed by someone else... :) In BF, all kinds of damage can be fixed in seconds with a blow torch... :heu:

However, your decision to leave the game is understandable, these kinds of boring, repetitive arcade games gets very boring, very fast.

Not a light torch, but a blow torch of course

and he was definitly enemy guy

-|> you destroy enemy tank with blow torch

-|> you repair ally tank with blow torch

makes perfect sense!

Ok, I didn't know that you could damage vehicles with the torch too. I have never seen that happen during my very limited experience with that game.

I once cored & destroyed an Apache Gunship "hovering/flying slowly" at 250-300ft with a Carl Gustav RR.

Went straight through, under and hit the underside right behind where the main mast is.

SB Gunnery paid off, I was quite proud of that. :)

This was back when BFBC was all the rage.

(BFBC = Battle Field Bad Company)
