@Cerberus Salve amice! Or should I say, Salve canis!?
@SebastianKoppehel I can't judge the skills of your Latin but I'm sure your English was better than you thought. As a native English speaker I can speak from experience that there are plenty of native speakers who don't speak it well. :P
 
@Adam I could be both!
@SebastianKoppehel Optima Latinitate donatus es!

@Adam: Trump is now trying to persuade people to rebel against state-governors who will not obey his orders; which, he has no right (Constitution) to give. Responding to the call, people (loonies) brandishing weapons, demonstrating. What if the police/ national guard open fire? In the military, officers who go crazy can be relieved of command (a high-risk strategy by those who attempt it) what about a President who goes nuts?
 
2:51 PM
@tony I don't think it'll get to that point - people will show up armed but most of them are not going to be the type that really want to get into an actual armed conflict with someone. There isn't a good mechanism in the constitution to remove a president unless he's actually incapacitated. I think the founding fathers made an assumption that someone like trump would never actually get elected and even if they did, the checks and balances of congress would prevent them from abusing power.
Unfortunately, Republicans are not holding up their sworn duty.

@JoonasIlmavirta Puto populum Finnicum similis existimare, alioqui (mea sententia) non inventisset sedere in conclavi ligneo calido, scopis se flagellans, denique se versare in nivem!
 
8:47 PM
@SebastianKoppehel Haud toti populo placet. Equidem raro in sauna balneo (seu simplicius sauno) et numquam postea in nive vertor. At vero multis placet, numerosioribus quam ex ulla grege peregrina.
Fere aeque numerantur Finni et saunae eorum, credo.
 
@SebastianKoppehel Puto Latinam tuam optimam esse. Solum verbum inventisset nescio. Estne invenisset?
 
@SebastianKoppehel Esne ipse usus sauna Finnica?
 
@JoonasIlmavirta Saunae Finnis Batavis bicycli sunt?
Cuius habemus plus quam sumus.
 
Quonam modo illam sententiam Latine optime reddamus? "Firmat nisi caedit"?
 
Bene videtur.
Bene aut bonum?
 
8:56 PM
@Cerberus Quasi omnes nostrum quoque birotam habent.
@Cerberus Nescio. Utro usus est Plautus? Certo talia scripsit.
Visne istud in situ nostro rogare? Mea interest.
 
@Cerberus Mira frequentia!
Ipse quoque birotam habeo sed rare adhibeo. Ambulare malo, et Granivici facile est.

@Cerberus Quot habes?
Unam et dimidiam?
 
Unam.
Sed aliam in cella conservo amico.
@JoonasIlmavirta Fortasse faciam!
 
9:06 PM
Mi iam dormitum eundum est. Valetote!
 
@JoonasIlmavirta Vale!

Q: Is it "bene videtur" or "bonum videtur"? Adjective or adverb with verbs/copulae meaning "seem"

CerberusWith verbs like "seem, appear", one sometimes uses an adverb to express how something appears ("she looked well"), at other times an adjective ("he seemed angry"). How did the Romans do it, specifically with the verb videri? I was trying to say, "it seems good (to me)", in this site's chat, refe...

Quaesivi.
 
@Cerberus Recte, scriberem invenisset (et in nive).
 
> versabat se in utramque partem, non solum mente, verum etiam corpore, Cic. Verr. 2, 2, 30, 74.
Utrumque casum possibilem esse puto!
In locum aut in loco.
 
9:26 PM
@Cerberus Ita, sed suspicor verbum "pars" significare "direction" in hoc exemplo.
 
@SebastianKoppehel Id ipsum significat.
At ut in partem nos versare possumus, ita in nivem.
An non?
 
9:44 PM
Certe, sed post saunam cum homines versant, suum locum non mutant. Nisi fallor, hoc factum usum ablativi postulat.
 
10:13 PM
(O, modo legi, me verbum valet quoque posse scribere pro verbum significat.)
 
Ita est.
Sed est motus ex sauna se versandi in nivem.
 
10:31 PM
@Cerberus Video. Id est quod dixi, non id quod dicere volui.
 
Intellego.
