Ahem. The conspiracy will not be televised and it will not be exposed on forums. Do not adjust your implants.

I have a question: since when did you start watching The Outer Limits? :P

You have to be careful, with automatic translators, when there are different words in your initial language that happen to be spelt the same. For instance, 'will' can be several different verbs and nouns in English. I'm pretty sure 'mos' is not the verb.

A while back here someone evidently wanted to shout 'Die!' in German, so they posted 'Würfel!'.

For anyone who still failed to get the joke, the individual in question was trying the translate the word "die" (the command to undergo death), but got the word for "die" (the singular of dice).

(Edit: grammer)

There is no conspiracy. None.
We are not staging a military coup with interterrestrial aliens.
We are not trying to help humans banished below ground long ago to return to the land that is rightfully theirs.
We do not have a time machine, and we are not using it to try and rewrite the history of the Roman Empire.
Galactic Core is not the codename for a secret project combining necromancy with organic chemistry.
There are no fluffy turtles who consume sanity.

You aren't really reading anything. In fact, you saw nothing more on these forums than that response to that post you made about that game.
You should get off the computer and get some fresh air.
And then you should play BoA. Lots and lots of BoA. Because there aren't any subliminal messages hidden in any of the scenarios.

There are no conspiracies here. The Cults won't allow any competition.

Nioca, just curious. What translator are you using? The one I've tried to use doesn't actually recognize any English words when I'm looking for latin.

I could make some lame joke about conspiracies, but it wouldn't even be remotely clever at this point.

EDIT: Questions with no '?' at the end really bother me.

Off the top of my head, I'd analyze this as "I, as the truth, prepare you people in respect to a shallow free thing." If you wanted "The truth will set you free," then Rakshasi (Kuber) has it: "Veritas vos liberabit."

Online translators for heavily inflected languages (Latin, Greek, Russian) tend to be awful.

Like this. Wow, that's bad. I think I get what you're trying to say, but, for example, you're trying to say "this task" or something like that with "is officina," right? That can't work. It has to be "ea officina." And apparently one is not "solers per" anything; one is "sollers ad" things, usually, or just with a naked accusative. And the Latin word for "Latin" is "Latina," which declines, just like anything. And it goes on.

"It's not great, but it does the job. I think. I am not skilled with Latin."

"Res non optimus, sed officium* facit. fortasse/credo. ego sum non certus* quod ego lingua Latina non comprehendo."

* = this word is not in my vocabulary. I used the linked translator to find a word which I hoped would fit.

I also changed a clause at the end for my convenience.

Hmm? Conspiracies? *quickly puts away something resembling a Penrose Triangle*

No conspiracies here, ESPECIALLY not ones involving non-Euclidean shapes!
