bighairyguy: How do you say "total dick" in Welsh?
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.
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 poundschwedeg-dau'six tens two.£58.62Easy.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.

People_are_Idiots: Wizard Drongo: bighairyguy: How do you say "total dick" in Welsh?"English"Cashier spoke to him in welsh the whole conversation, and then totalled in english (probably not a native speaker, and just read the numbers, automatically). An 83 year old guy in west wales might well even now not speak much english, or even any, so when he asked fr in in welsh and she refused, she was being a complete biatch.Though the real fail is reserved for the english wankers on the Daily Mail site, whining "but this is the UK, we all speak English", not realising that Gaelic Gaelige is spoken in NI & Scotland, Scots Gaelic in Scotland, Ulster Scots in NI, and Welsh in Wales. The English think they run/own everything, but they do get stroppy when you remind them they don't./ Sassenach bastardsFTFY :)
