I see, thanks for explaining.

From the one or two phrases that I learned by heart during stays there, I remember "Niye panimayush" (I don´t understand) as reply to anything


Not sure if you are aware, but what you were replying has a bit more of a darker possibility - it actually means "You don't understand" - could have gotten you into some trouble

You should have been saying "Nye panimayu".

[No, I am not Russian, I just understand Russian]

Err ...no I was not aware of it.

And as you mention it, it almost appears to me as if in fact there had been some surprised looking faces, back then.
Embarrasing ... so many years later ... hehe

Estevan,

Through my brother I used to know some Hispanics, Spanish and Greeks who had attented a Russian boarding school, thus were fluently capable of Russian language and writing.
(One of them by the name Antonio -a talented guitarist- I think later on opened a bar in Madrid -or was it Barcelona-, which as I heard was running very well.)

You are not one of those kids by chance?


Haha, no, not like that. Just an English guy in Canada who plays some guitar and is interested in languages. I learned some Russian in university long ago in the past century. I was puzzled why Piwin would post a picture of a word that sounds like "Puyet". So I searched for it and it wasn't what he meant.

Also, I was going to say what kitarist has already told you. I'm sure it was funny if you went around Russia telling other people "You don't understand" - but also true!

Oh sorry, I thought you were just pointing out that it made no sense in Russian. If you were genuinely puzzled, the answer is just that it's not written in Cyrillic! You'll find "nyet" written sometimes in English as slang, a sound-alike for нет.

It must have been really funny to say the least.
Imagine, there coming a guy incapable of speaking a single word, and in the same time telling folks that they wouldn´t understand. Ouch! |O]

-Darn, what a little "sh" at the end of a word can do.

Yes of course - I did suspect that, but the type face threw me off as the first letter is much more like a Cyrillic 'p' (it is one) than a Latin 'n' (it's not one).

But that's cats for you. Effin bird-killers, no good at writing.

Imagine is a song by John Lennon.
It must be familiar to you, as it's pretty much what you do on the internet everyday.

Don´get angry on such wonderful creatures.
And note that their damages to bird population have been found to not be like what people think.
Corvidae are much more impacting than cats, and most of all are human effects on living space and on resource. Lately especially through insect killing with pesticides that left birds starving.

Indeed, that must be what I do.
But the funny thing is that you are getting caught with pants down all the time.

Ought to be either the fate of a just in an upside-down world, or the one of a wannabe-wisdomed trend follower.


What you do all the time, is proving that it makes you flaming mad when coming over information that you havn´t heard of before.

Can you point out a single post of all the years that you are hanging out on the forum, where you would had said to anyone something to the extent of: "I see", "I didn´t know that" or even "thanks for the information"?

It has not happened even once, and indicates your unfortunate characteristics. Because without the inferiority complex and all the wannabe fiddlesticks you could be a seeker.

Where at all do you have the competence from to judge my posts?
And if you have it, why havn´t you been able to point out my unbased being even just once without at trial disgracing yourself before everyone who´d either be informed on a matter in question or be focused enough to see your incongruence and displacement activity in the debate.


Now go and relax, maybe by trendy admiring a Gerhard Richter as the most famous and expensive contemporary German hoax who´s never even proved of being capable of an eye or an aimed stroke, while in a wake of the Emperor´s New Clothes in the same time being ignorant and dismissive of artistic capacities like Sebastian Schrader. And don´t forget the black clothing and the scarf as the true insignia of the gifted and abstractly comprehending!

No, no I can't. That's one of the problems with having Conde Derangement Syndrome- You should take pity on me for my disease. The diagnosis of CDS very often boosts the inability to be empathetic and carry on rational programmes.

Very lucky for me my team of doctors enrolled me into a therapy situation where I work out my disease making guitars. Good work for the hands, you know idle hands are the workshop of the great satan.

I would not wish CRS on anyone.

Ah, CRS!

I thought it was successfully treated long since already, isn´t it?
