My favorite Latin phrase

Recommended Posts

Guest

Deligo Piscim Cum Oculi Luminosis

I'm thinking of plastering it on one side of my boat. But if I do, then I think I kinda need another phrase to go on the other side. I've considered "Piscoro Ergo Existum". Anyone have any other ideas?

Clayton D,

Let's see how close I can get to translating what you mean.

Literal translation: No illigitmate boat.

What we would say in modern American English: There's no such thing as a bad boat.

My closest interpretation to your meaning: ANY BOAT IS A GOOD BOAT.

If this is close, then I really like "Non Piscim Illigitimi" i.e. "Any fish is a good fish".

How'd I do? I'm not a Latin expert, just enough of a novice to be dangerous.

After seeing your translation it does make sense. I made the mistake of taking "carbarundum" to be derived from "carabus" which is a boat. However, here is your translation.

Non is a negative term such as "no", In this case it works as the word "don't".

The illigitimi are obviously the illigitmate ones or the B--t-rds.

Okay the complex word "carbarundum":
Careo = deprive
Bar = savage (this is the base word for barbarian)
undum: implies this is an action toward you

So the literal translation would be: Don't let the b----rds savagely deprive you.

As you can see your translation works.

Okay back to what to put on the other side of my boat. How about "PISCATOR EXTRAORDINAIRE"?

Your Latin is a great deal better than mine. What I've given is a favorite saying from years past -- to wit: "Don't Let the Bast...s grind you down." Obviously a corruption from the original Latin.

Of course Lucius is where we get the English word "delicious". Esox Lucius must mean "Delicious only when Pickled" !!

I don't remember the Latin for it but the sign in the Lonesome Dove movie that said - "We don't rent pigs" Loved the movie!

Not sure, I made it up. "Carpe" from carpe dium, and the second is the latin word for a walleye. "Sieze the walleyes" sorry if I am wrong, never took any latin.

The Latin phrase from Lonesome Dove was:

Uva uvam vivendo varia fit

Which translated means: one grape causes another grape to ripen

WS, no you had it right, I just wanted to "sieze" the opportunity to equate walleyes with rough fish, you know, Carpe looks kinda like Carp. hehe

"Any fish is a good fish" just comes to close to disparaging the species which consumes my quest, and that's just soooo against my nature to disparage the beloved walleye. I may have to go with:

Being a Red Green fan as well as a fisherman, this one holds a lot of appeal.

    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.

    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.

    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮

    • leech and others, i actually thought the same exact thing, the whole screen is used up with "history", trust me, I loved my marcum flasher and did not want to give into the 2D sonar; but after swapping it out of the boat from the summer use then using it all winter, I'm sold. Like getanet posted, you can still have the flasher screen with the helix so you dont have to use the 2d sonar view. hence my argument, smartphone (with all of the gadgets, summer, winter, etc) vs flip phones (flasher only).   but I rarely use the flasher portion on my helix and opt to the 2d sonar (by the way with 2d you still get the flasher/rts window in real time) and it's history. you can adjust the size of your history and RTS window on the helix as well, and I've found to have the history useful at times as well, if you look away for instance and see a mark on the history screen, you can be fore-warned of a nearby fish, with a flasher, you get that quick flash and its gone.    it took me some coaxing just like when I didnt want to switch out of my reliable dependable flip phone to a fancy smartphone, but I'm a convert now, and I still bring my Marcum with
