dopekitty74: cptjeff: i upped my meds-up yours: Dedmon: Tricky Chicken: So, my strategy is when I become a cardinal, I will decide what my pope name will be and register it just in case I become pope. I'll probably need to pick a couple alternates in case I don't get elected at the first opportunity. I'll probably need to learn to navigate church politics too. I should also think about seminary (tee hee) school and getting ordained. I should probably become a catholic too. I should probably start about twenty years ago.

You would probably have a cool story, bro.

Tricky Chicken in Latin is Gallus Astutus, which has kind of a ring to it.

Say anything in latin, and it sounds sophisticated.

\Mordere mea crus metallum asinus.

Don't really know much latin, but pretty sure that says Bite my shiny metal ass!

/i love Bender :)


Well, that's what google says the latin translation is, anyway.

The Church can get it easily by using WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization. Part of the UN. Check out the WIPO website and the decisions database. It's like a DB of durp for low life domain squatters.

Rent it out and charge interest.  It's not like Catholics use the Bible anyways.

cptjeff: TheManofPA: But what is the Pope's new twitter handle

I NEED TO KNOW!

Same one as the old pope, @pontifex. It's controlled by the office, not by the individual guy. It was actually kind of funny- they apparently turned it inactive when Benedict officially left office and reactivated it when they got white smoke. To think that there's a guy at the Vatican responsible for reactivating the papal twitter handle immediately after the conclave chooses someone is kind of funny. Soon it'll be just as traditional an element of the ceremony as the tolling of the bells.



Anderson Cooper interviewed two of the people in charge of the Vatican Twitter feed (among other social media duties). Apparently they have interns doing this. The two interns AC interviewed were Americans who looked to be in their early 20s. Makes sense when you think about it, I can't imagine some old fart in a cassock sitting in front of a computer updating social media sites all day.

It's incorrect.

No wonder BBC was scrambling to find a good translator.

Lets see..
There doesn't really seem to be an adjective for metallum like "ligneus" (wooden) is for lignum (wood) or ferreus for ferrum (iron).
Hmmm..maybe something like

"Morde(te) ex metallo splendido factum cullum meum !"

=

"Bite my ass made from shiny metal!"
