"Kid, you fell in the milk."

Who says rock music can't teach you anything? During my Thanksgiving visit to Arizona State University, I was recently regifted a CD by California accouti-rockers the Mountain Goats called Zopilote Machine and on the back of the case was printed the curious phrase, "Kid you fell in the milk". Classical attribution anyone? In the liner notes for this album (as with the band's other releases) comes a mixture of Latin and English, including this… Continue

Fable of the Day: De vitula et bove (Barlow)

Mollis et lasciva Vitula, cum Bovem agricolae aculeo agitatum et arantem cerneret, contempsit. Sed cum immolationis dies affuit, Bos, a iugo liberatus, per pascua vagabatur. Vitula vero, ut immolaretur, retenta est. Quod cum Bos conspicatur, subridens ait, "Heus Vitula, ideo non laborabas: ut immolareris!"

Fable of the Day: De cicada et formica (Barlow)

Dum per aestatem Cicada cantat, Formica suam exercet messem, trahendo in antra grana et in hiemem reponendo. Saeviente autem bruma, famelica Cicada venit ad Formicam et mendicat victum; renuebat autem Formica, dictitans sese laborasse, dum illa cantabat.

Luna collucente (aka Au clair de la lune)

Luna collucente

Quidam clamitat:

"Stilum ad scribendum

Quisnam mihi dat?

Exstincta candela

Lumen deest mi;

Pro amore Dei,

Portam aperi!"



Luna collucente

Hoc responsum fit:

"Aperire nolo

Nox cum atra sit.

Vigilat vicina,

Ab illa quaeras

Calamum ut scribas

Tuas litteras."



Luna collucente

Ad vicinam it

Lumen rogaturus,

Portamque ferit.

"Quis es tu qui pulsas

Extra ianuas?"

"Pro amoris deo,

Rubric for assessing historical scenario-building for Civilization

One of the things that always amazes me about playing Civilization IV (or indeed, just about any game you’d care to name) is what might be called the

‘metagame’ - the discussions on the forums, the fansites, the

user-created mods. It seems to me that this is one of the most

important aspects of the educational use of commercial games. On

Civfanatics, there is a discussion entitled ‘…

Fable of the Day: De leone, asino et gallo (Barlow)

Gallus aliquando cum Asino pascebatur, Leone autem aggresso Asinum, Gallus exclamavit, et Leo, qui Galli vocem timet, fugere incipit. Asinus, ratus propter se fugere, aggressus est Leonem; ut vero procul a gallicinio persecutus est, conversus Leo Asinum devoravit, qui moriens clamabat, "Iusta passus sum, ex pugnacibus enim non natus parentibus, quamobrem in aciem irrui?"

Fable of the Day: De cornice et urna (Barlow)

Sitibunda Cornix reperit urnam aqua plenam, sed erat urna profundior quam ut exhauri a Cornice possit. Conatur igitur vano molimine aquam effundere, sed non valet. Lectos igitur ex arena lapillulos iniectat. Hoc modo aqua levatur et Cornix bibit.

Fable of the Day: De leone et urso (Barlow)

Leo et Ursus, simul magnum adepti Hinnulum, de eo concertabant. Graviter autem a se ipsis affecti, ut ex multa pugna etiam vertigine corriperentur, defatigati iacebant. Vulpes interea, circumcirca eundo ubi prostratos eos vidit et Hinnulum in medio iacentem, hunc, per utrosque percurrendo, rapuit fugiensque abivit. At illi videbant quidem furacem Vulpem sed, quia non potuerunt surgere, "Eheu, nos miseros," dicebant, "quia Vulpi laboravimus."

Fable of the Day: De anu et ancillis (Barlow)

Anus quaedam domi habebat complures Ancillas, quas quotidie, antequam lucesceret, ad Galli gallinacei, quem domi alebat, cantum excitabat ad opus. Ancillae tandem, quotidiani negotii commotae taedio, Gallum obtruncant, sperantes iam, necato illo, sese in medios dormituras dies. Sed haec spes miseras frustrata est. Hera enim, ut interemptum Gallum rescivit, Ancillas intempesta nocte surgere deinceps iubet.

Roman and US history

I am trully fascinated by some simularities between the 'Fall of Rome' (Rome and its culture are still very much alive (I just got back from there!) and the present state of the US. I have researching the topic extensively and the more I know, the more I am amazed by the samenessess. Any thoughts or common bonds?
