quote Футбол глазами иномирянина. Автору — зачот!

"Так вот. Расселись. Телевизор что-то говорит. Я, понятно, ничего не понимаю. А потом началось странное. Около двух десятков мужиков, одетых в трусы и майки, начали бегать по большому зелёному полю, с непонятной целью гоняясь за мячом. А вокруг этого поля воздвигнут огромный амфитеатр, где сидит совершенно невообразимое количество человек. Десятки тысяч. И все эти тысячи орут, свистят, дуют в большие дудки, бьют в барабаны.    Сначала я удивился, где могли набрать такое огромное количество скорбных на голову. И раз уж нашли, то зачем их всех привели и посадили смотреть на тех слабоумных, которые без устали пинали ногами мяч по всему полю. А потом я услышал звук дудки у себя за спиной. Оглянулся и обомлел. Я сидел в окружении таких же безумцев. Взоры всех без исключения были прикованы к телевизору, а на лицах выражение крайней заинтересованности. "

Pratchett quote "They were aristocrats,you see?
Aristocrats don’t notice philosophical conundra. They just ignore them. Philosophy includes
contemplating the possibility that you might be wrong, sir, and a real aristocrat knows that he isalways
right. It’s not vanity, you understand, it’s built-in absolute certainty. They may sometimes be as mad as a
hatful of spoons, but they are always definitely and certainly mad.’"
quote Retief “Hardly, my dear Retief,” Magnan said blandly. “The implication is mightier than the affidavit. You should study the records of the giants of Galactic diplomacy: Crodfoller, Wormwell, Spradley, Nitworth, Sternwheeler, Barnshingle; the roll-call of those names rings like the majestic tread of . . . of . . .”

“Dinosaurs?” Retief suggested.

“An apt simile,” Magnan nodded. “Those mighty figures, those armored hides—”

“Those tiny brains . . .”
quote LOL "The Fustians are a long-lived people," Magnan snapped.
"These matters are relative. At seventy-five, a male Fustian is at a trying age."
"That's right; he'll try anything in the hope it will maim somebody."

чортов феникс заставляет меня использовать конструкции которых я в своей ерчи отродясь не замечал >_<
quote LOL freaks sankaku "But since my interests cater to a lot of different genres of ero-art and hentai sub-genres (Kemono, Kemono-mimi, etc, and all it's sub-genres are included), I learned to just "fap first, sort out feelings later" when it comes to things like the above..."
quote Bulwer-Lytton As his small boat scudded before a brisk breeze under a sapphire sky dappled with cerulean clouds with indigo bases, through cobalt seas that deepened to navy nearer the boat and faded to azure at the horizon, Ian was at a loss as to why he felt blue.
quote Bulwer-Lytton epic Wearily approaching the murder scene of Jeannie and Quentin Rose and needing to determine if this was the handiwork of the Scented Strangler--who had a twisted affinity for spraying his victims with his signature raspberry cologne--or that of a copycat, burnt-out insomniac detective Sonny Kirkland was sure of one thing: he’d have to stop and smell the Roses.

:))))))))))))))))))) у меня нет слов
quote Bulwer-Lytton WTF Sensing somehow a scudding lay in the offing, Skipper Bob tallied his tasks:  reef the mains'l, mizzen, and jib, strike and brail the fores'l, mizzen stays'l and baggywrinkles, bowse the halyards, mainsheets, jacklines and vangs, turtle and belay fast the small cock, flemish the taffrail warps, batten the booby hatch, lay by his sou'wester, and find the bailing bucket. 
Ощущается острая нехватка известных мне слов... подозреваю что известных типичному англичанину — тоже :)
