It has been a wonderful weekend of conversations.

From Royale with Cheese, through Zoya and Sharks, to Osama on Obama action, conversations meandered…

Oh, the humanity!”

America, fuck yeah!

“Hey man, is that Freedom Rock? … Well turn it up, man!”

Homer

 

Speaking of conversations, in case you were wondering…

We’re knee-deep developing PandaWhale, since 1/11/11:

We will ship as soon as we can.

PandaWhale, fuck yeah!

We’ve proudly proclaimed fuck yeah from PandaWhale’s start.

Naturally, we’ll build this affirmation into our coat of arms.

And an awesomesauce family crest is inked in Latin…

So how does “fuck yeah” translate into Latin?

To the Qloud!

A friend asked a friend who is trained in the classics.

There’s “SIC FUTUE” which translates to “THUSLY, FUCK!” as if it were a command.

Which doesn’t seem quite right.

Nor does “COITUM ITA” which translates to “SEX YES” as if it were a lifestyle choice.

Not quite right, either.

Which brings us to “CONFACIMUS” which is literally, “Fuck it!” but in the first person plural, kind of like a royal “We fuck it!”, or “LET US FUCK
IT!!
” …

AMERICA, CONFACIMUS!!” has a nice ring to it as it rolls off the tongue…

Let’s try confacimus on for size.

PandaWhale? Confacimus!

Mike Brown tweets? Confacimus!

My friend Scott’s son plays hard? Confacimus!

Confacimus

Fuck yeah, I could get used to confacimus in my vocabulary.

Let’s try a more intermediate use of the word.

“Confacimus Navegamus” could mean “Fuck it, let’s go sailing!

But isn’t “SAILING, FUCK YEAH!” significantly awesomesaucier?

Btw, I think the pronunciation is “con FACK i mus“.

I’ve checked with a few scholars familiar with “street Latin”. 😉

I do know there is a wonderful world between profound and gibberish.

So let’s try an advanced employment of confacimus.

Chalant and plussed and gruntled, cogito ergo confacimus.

Come to think of it, confacimus has myriad uses…

Conversations? Confacimus!

Hot Sauce Committee Part 2? Confacimus!

Barbie Computer Engineer? Confacimus!

Kittens in bowls? Confacimus!

Dreams that go to 11? Confacimus!!!

Pandawhale

I dream of organizing public conversations for 106 Miles.

I dream of PandaWhale.

Fuck yeah!

It’s the dream that we all share. It’s the hope for tomorrow…


 

Alpocalypse‘s “Perform This Way“? Confacimus!

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold? Confacimus!

Fear and Consumption? Confacimus!

Apple’s ToS is a PoS? Confacimus!

Enlightenment? Confacimus!

Happiness? Confacimus!

Love? Confacimus!

Marvelous. 😉

  1. Abram pointed out to me that Obama’s Osama-is-dead speech used the phrase "Pursuit of Prosperity."Not happiness.Hmmmm.Consumption is not built into the Declaration of Independence as far as I know.So we still have the Fear-Crave-Consume cycle.Just a little food for thought.

  6. Chris Smith saw Abrams’ comment and responded:Jefferson’s "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is based on Locke’s "life, liberty, and property." Just before the Declaration of Independence was created, George Mason connected life, liberty, property, and happiness in his own manifesto for Virginia. In a dizzying feat of circularity, Osama bin Laden is now celebrating in heaven with 72 Virginians.
