Yeah, you're right. Pardon my amateur translation skills. :oops:

Don't worry about it. If you've seen my RTK7 Players' Guide website and read the names and blurbs of the treasured items, you'd find some interestingly weird translations. I did my best to try to contextualize the translated text so that it flows more smoothly.

I like your current sig a lot, BTW. :lol: How do you keep the Chinese characters in their correct form all the time without having to use the encoding?


Thanks, it kills every Mandarin speaker I know! :)

I am using Windows 98. I use Richwin to type out the text into Wordpad. I then copy and paste it into the message boxes here at SoSZ when I post a message.

I tried saying it out loud and ended up sounding like I was hissing. :lol:

Oh, I use NJStar to copy and paste, but encoding is still required to read the characters. Thanks for the tip, though.

At least the one about knowing spares you that embarassment! There are a few other good Mandarin tongue twisters out there.

For example,

媽媽騎馬
馬慢媽媽罵馬

makes you sound like a baby again!

Policy - Think up not-very-witty sig. Don't touch for rest of life.

This is a twang on what the Card Urborg Volcano actually does.
If I ever become untapped, you can tap me for Red or Black mana! Wouldn't that be a blast? (I'll blast YOU for 1 damage, mutter mutter.)

MY sig is nothing special, but it makes sense.
Huang Zhong: Are you calling me old?!
Wei Yan: ...Yes.

It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others - other people, other beliefs, and other nations - will help you become whole.
