Hagbardr: RoyFokker'sGhost: Xetal: CygnusDarius: Was this druid wielding a sword?.

No, they're only able to wield non-metallic weapons, I believe. Let me consult the rulebook.

No, they're cleared for sickles and scimitars. Basically, anything with a curved blade.

Did you see those Druids from Wales? They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords.


I used to be a druid like you.  Then I took a sickle in the knee.

You can't troll the Welsh on Fark. They're scared of the magic "electricity" so steer clear of the Internet.

BarryJV: To slightly deviate from the thread, as demonstrated by the article, the Welsh numbering system is the most rational I've encountered.

In English, we count to nineteen before we adopt a more rational "Twenty - one, Twenty - two" etc. even then we have different names for each multiple of ten, each has to be learned separately. Only when we reach one hundred do we adopt a rational system of multiples.

In Spanish, they count to fifteen before moving on to dieciseis (ten - six) and they still have different names for each multiple of ten.

In Welsh there is a decimal system of numbers with numbers zero to ten. Eleven is "ten - one", thirty seven is "three tens - seven".

So:
'pum-deg-wyth punt,
is five tens - eight pounds

chwedeg-dau'
six tens two.

£58.62
Easy.

Surprising that the cashier didn't know how to translate that into Welsh as the language is taught as standard up to the age of 11 in all schools in Wales.


'pum-deg-wyth punt, chwedeg-dau'
or
fifty eight sixty two


I'm beginning to see why the farking language died

This is the part that confuses me. If she spoke Welsh, then why didn't she just tell him the price in Welsh? This story is missing some details and I am left with the impression that the cashier should get he the most blame for this.
