He could have bought 2 months of TotalFark and called Putin a pooty-head every day.

Hey, to show these guys that there are no hard feelings, I hear Putin invited them out for sushi.

Oh god, this is beautiful.  UTTERLY beautiful :D

(For those who are familiar with Russian and Ukranian insults--this is cognate with "Иди на хуй" (pronounced "idi na hui" with the "h" sounding like "ch" in "loch" or "ack" as in Bill the Cat coughing up a hairball), which is about the worst phrase you can say in the Russian language; it means literally "Sit on a dick", but in actual meaning it is rather closer to "fark you, fark your mother, fark your grandmother, fark your dog, and fark each and every member of your extended family and their pets even unto the seventh generation, and we'd tell you to bend over and take it but you'd probably like that".  It's one of those things that will get you stabbed/shot/poloniumed in record time even if used in impolite company.

(So "Putin huilo" would really mean literally "Putin (is a) dick" and more like "Putin is a goddamned cocksmith".  Rather a bit stronger than just saying he's a dick or a wanker.)

No. You did not name a star. You paid $10 to fund some guy's research project, giving benefit of doubt that there really is one, and got your name on his own personal list of people who have given him $10 and "adopted" a star, kind of like how you might adopt a wild rhinoceros or a blue whale. The lists maintained by this "Pale Blue Dot Project," the well-known "International Star Registry" and other outfits that let you "name" stars or other astronomical bodies in exchange for money, have no official validity beyond their own filing cabinets. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is the only body with the authority to name celestial objects, and they do not sell their services.

Oh, that's nothing compared to how far Russians and Ukranians can take cursing.  To say they've made profanity (not to mention "Your momma" insults) into a distinct art form in and of itself is not an exaggeration--read up some time on mat' or the fine art of Slavic profanity which can, at times, descend into a particularly interesting version of the George Carlin "History of the Word 'Fark' Sketch" :D  (And yes, variants of "khui/hui" are very, very frequent, even including essentially a direct analogue of the more distinctly Nordic members of Dethklok declaring something as "dildos".)  The whole "Putin is a dick/cocksmith" thing is just a rare example where it managed to transcend the language barrier :D

It takes about 5 seconds to realize nobody "named" a star for $10. They merely "adopted" a star, which is about as official as a police department donut budget.

I can't say I know the Russian language all that well...but at least I do know how to curse in Russian :D  (And that phrase is incredibly offensive because it means "Fark your mom" in a particularly rude way (essentially literally translated it means "My dick in your mom", with implications both of "I farked your mom" AND "and you're pretty much the bastard that resulted from my sperm donation").  Like I said...Russian (and most Slavic languages) really DO make "your momma" AND profanity into an art form :D)

And to give another example of just how the word for "cock" in Russian can in fact be put in every single word in a sentence (yes, one of the forms of humor in the language DOES pretty much involve essentially Using The Word Fark In Every Word In A Sentence--and there's at least fifteen distinct words in Russian with that level of pejorativeness):

As an ultimate joke in this series, the goal is to apply such substitution to as many words of a sentence as possible while keeping it meaningful. The following dialog at a construction site between a foreman and a worker retains a clear meaning even with all of its 14 words being derived from the single obscene word khuy. Russian language proficiency is needed to understand this. Word-by-word:

- Okhuyeli?! (Have [you] gone mad?!) Nakhuya (why) dokhuya (so much) khuyni (of stuff) nakhuyarili (you have loaded up)? Raskhuyarivay (unload [it]) nakhuy! (out of here)
- Khuli?! (What's the problem?) Nikhuya! (No way!) Nekhuy (No need) raskhuyarivat (to unload)! Nakhuyacheno ([It] got loaded) nekhuyovo! (quite well)! Pokhuyarili! (Let's go)

Possible, but incomplete translation:
- Farkheads, why the fark did you farking load so farking much of this shiat? Unfark it the fark out of here!
- What's the farking problem?! Fark no! No farking need to unfark! It got farked up farking well! Let's farking go!

(And yes, this is possible for the exact same reason that you can have German words the length of a small paragraph or how Inuit supposedly have their 47 words for snow (which are actually words with a single root for "snow" that have a lot of descriptives and translate to things like "fluffy snow", "pelletlike snow", "snow that is turning to ice", "snow that is yellow because the huskies have pissed in it", and so on).  By the same logic of "Inukitut and Inuvialtun have 47 words for snow", Russian has at least 482 distinct words for "fark" and roughly as many for "coont", "biatch", and so on...and yes, pretty much all the Russian naughties refer to farking or getting farked by someone :D)

/not as weird as cursing in Quebecois French
//Quebecois French cursing, you never quite know if someone's saying "fark your mother to another dimension" or reciting Mass because ALL the naughty words are references to Catholic liturgy

I've also seen it translated as "Your mother's coont" (again, with strong implication that "your mom is a cum-dumpster and I know this because I farked the shiat out of her") and apparently it's one of the pejoratives that's become a loan-word in Hebrew (where it's managed to mutate to the local equivalent of something being out in Bumfark, Egypt).  Pretty much all the translations boil down to "your mother is a cum-dumpster", though.

Modern Hebrew, of note, has...an interesting history re profanity in that language.  As many folks know, it was a liturgical language from shortly before the time of Christ onwards, and when it was revived as a non-liturgical language profanity had to essentially be invented for it--unlike Latin, there apparently ARE no naughty phrases preserved in ancient Hebrew that would be understandable in modern context--and as a result pretty much all the profanity in Modern Hebrew are loanwords from Russian, Yiddish, or Arabic.

Which is pretty impressive and pretty amusing at the same time--the whole situation with revitalising a language and having to essentially invent an entire perjorative class of words, that is :D

Nogale: Oh, do you know Russian? Can you explain the phrase "kibinimat" and why it's so offensive?


I know Russian (being ethnically Russian myself) and I have no emotional problems explaining anything. The problem is the phrase is not easily translatable.

It's actually 3 words - "k" (to, towards), "ebeni/ibini" (a form of "farked") and "mat" (mother). It's a collocation popular since 18th century at least, may be earlier, and it's has its own meaning at this point, not directly derived from the words composing it.

"kibinimat",used as one word, is very popular in Israel, where it was brought by Russian jews and became the part of general language.

Generally, it means either a destination "as far away as possible and beyond" or an intent to finish some business, something or someone completely and utterly (as in "I will burn your house kibinimat" or something like that.)

It can be used as for others "Go k ibini mat  from here, you bastards!" as for yourself: "I'm tired of this! I'm going  k ibini mat  from here!"

There is a historical anecdote that "k ibini mat" was a favorite resolution of the Catherine the Great on any document, petition or proposition she didn't like. There is not much, if any, actual evidence in support of this, but a lot of people believe it. It certainly corresponds to Catherine's character. :)

I wouldn't say that it's particularly terrible offensive in Russian, but it's usually a sign of serious emotional disturbance - serves as a kind of the sign that the person is put to the very edge of his nerves and patience and is dead serious about the matter.

Great Porn Dragon: Nogale: Great Porn Dragon: Nogale: Great Porn Dragon: Oh god, this is beautiful.  UTTERLY beautiful :D

(For those who are familiar with Russian and Ukranian insults--this is cognate with "Иди на хуй" (pronounced "idi na hui" with the "h" sounding like "ch" in "loch" or "ack" as in Bill the Cat coughing up a hairball), which is about the worst phrase you can say in the Russian language; it means literally "Sit on a dick", but in actual meaning it is rather closer to "fark you, fark your mother, fark your grandmother, fark your dog, and fark each and every member of your extended family and their pets even unto the seventh generation, and we'd tell you to bend over and take it but you'd probably like that".  It's one of those things that will get you stabbed/shot/poloniumed in record time even if used in impolite company.

(So "Putin huilo" would really mean literally "Putin (is a) dick" and more like "Putin is a goddamned cocksmith".  Rather a bit stronger than just saying he's a dick or a wanker.)

Oh, do you know Russian? Can you explain the phrase "kibinimat" and why it's so offensive?

I can't say I know the Russian language all that well...but at least I do know how to curse in Russian :D  (And that phrase is incredibly offensive because it means "Fark your mom" in a particularly rude way (essentially literally translated it means "My dick in your mom", with implications both of "I farked your mom" AND "and you're pretty much the bastard that resulted from my sperm donation").  Like I said...Russian (and most Slavic languages) really DO make "your momma" AND profanity into an art form :D)

I see. No Russian speaker I know has been willing to explain it to me.

I've also seen it translated as "Your mother's coont" (again, with strong implication that "your mom is a cum-dumpster and I know this because I farked the shiat out of her") and apparently it's one of the pejoratives that's become a loan-word in Hebrew (where it's managed to mutate to the local equivalen ...


Thanks for the exegesis.... I'm actually Israeli, which is how I know the phrase "kibinimat." But the people who use it here aren't the Russians, and no one seems to know what it actually means. In fact, a lot of people think it's Arabic.

I apologize for my previous reply, which was snippier than I intended. You were very nice and I was irritated about something unrelated.

FWIW I had you favorited in a lovely bright pink even before this thread.

Clockwork Kumquat: No. You did not name a star. You paid $10 to fund some guy's research project, giving benefit of doubt that there really is one, and got your name on his own personal list of people who have given him $10 and "adopted" a star, kind of like how you might adopt a wild rhinoceros or a blue whale. The lists maintained by this "Pale Blue Dot Project," the well-known "International Star Registry" and other outfits that let you "name" stars or other astronomical bodies in exchange for money, have no official validity beyond their own filing cabinets. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is the only body with the authority to name celestial objects, and they do not sell their services.

Sorry, if any of you have purchased stars as romantic gifts, thoughtful memorials for departed loved ones, etc., but that's how it is.

True, but it's probably worth 10 bucks to issue a formal insult. Might be the only reasonable use of the "star-naming" sites.

It's cool to be able to point to 'your' star with your kid

/Mrs. Brainsick and I 'adopted' one of the stars in Orion and have the coordinates inscribed inside our wedding bands


The thought is indeed what counts, with these things. And of course the IAU has no say in the reality of what's engraved on your wedding bands.

My beef with these registries is that their business is generally couched in language that would appear intended to lead the buyer to believe that their purchase will secure, along with the symbolic expression, the actual entry of their star's new name in the official scientific literature.

Yeah, I know... Among my rotating set of hobbies I was into astronomy in a moderately heavy way for a stretch of years, and this is just a peeve of mine.

It was only $5 to name the star, but he slipped them an extra $5 to ensure it was a red dwarf.
