So yeah it’s rough… but carl sagan be damned it’s easy to mix it up… Apparently it’s a huge joke with Bucharest servers.
I did this with french phrase one time. I was talking about my cat but apparently I my accent made it sound like a slang term for a female part…that was an embarrassing moment.
lol, french is just dirty to begin with…
I’ll stick to coffee if I ever visit Romania.
I recommend this instant coffee there called amigo… IT’S AMAZING! best coffee I’ve had… and it’s instant…
I will definitely give it a try if I can find it.
I know how that is, man. I went to south Romania for a vacation, apparently I should of studied my book more.
As I no longer show up on film.
were you in Bucharest? pitesti? Craiova? I mainly was in bucharest and then took a week long tour of thr north. bran, brasov, piatra neamt, bacau. also saw the danube delta near tulcea.
I started in Bucharest, stayed for about a day and a half to soak it in and fight the jet lag. Then I went to Giurgiu, Alexandria in Teleorman, Olt, Craiova, Gorj, Vilcea. From there I went to Arefu in Arges to visit Poenari Castle, then to Pitesti, onto Dambovita, Prohova, and full circle to Bucharest. It all took the better part of two weeks. Good time though.

In Chinese the tonal shift on the syllable can change the meaning of the word to something else, meaning that you really need to watch what you say.
yeah my gf’s sister in law is chinese and they live out in china. it’s interesting how one tonal shift changes the whole meaning…
Fun trivia: In Spain Spanish the verb “coger” (“to grab”) means just that. In Mexican Spanish, it’s slang for “to fuck.” I always get very self conscious when I say I’m grabbing the phone.
fun trivia : in australia to root someone is to fuck them. canadian athletes at the summer games wore roots… they were fuckers.
Australian buddy of mine laughs his ass off when he sees the “roots outback” jacket I have.
I love that and now have an excuse. Because I do like lemon tea! Now off to Romania once my beard is thick enough to handle that many smacks.
you’ll totally clean up there… you’ll be fighting them off with empty absinthe bottles.
awesome, as I’m currently trying to get with a romanian girl. 😉
that should have totally said “Bitch-ed slapped”
This made my day! 😀
;A; But ashamedly, this comment is 5 days late.
I once went on a mission trip to Spain, and my friend kept trying to tell people he was 21 years old in Spanish, but for whatever reason, they would either laugh or give him a weird look and walk away. We eventually ran into one guy who was bilingual and he told us what was wrong.
“Tengo veintiún años.” = “I am twenty-one years old.”
“Tengo veintiún anos.” = “I have twenty-one assholes.”
I know only archive bingers like myself will see this, but it’s still funny as hell.
