Apparently, when you start grad school, people assume you know Latin and French. I would get my stacks of books for my history seminars, and lo, there were large blocks of text in Latin or French, and the author wouldn't bother to give a translation. I don't know Latin or French! I took Spanish! Silly me, taking a practical language for my area.



There was a bonus comic Monday, in case you missed it. If you'd like a bonus comic this month, be sure to vote! Get KT into the top 100 at Top Web Comics, and there will be a spiffy, bonus comic Monday, December 28.

This take me back to my History of the English Language class; one of our books was in Old English but fortunately the translation was on the opposite page^_^;;

Whenever Minty asks a question like that Desi Arnaz pops into my head "Lucy! You has some eexplainin' to do!" *laughs*

Poo, I can't see the comic. Temporarily LJ technical difficulties, maybe?

Argh! Yeah, the comic and the header graphic are missing. Looks like problems with my Scrapbook again.

I sympathesise on the French (I studied Latin for ten years so I'm a little better at those lol). Some of the literary criticism I read would have untranslated quotes too.

That's what you get when you get PRACTICAL with your schooling...
