In order to illustrate my point, I've "Babelized" my post (in honour of BTB, through Dutch.)

I accuse you of thinking you with a translator could leave. Bowl on people, it's if trying with an entitled cat has a conversation. In former days the stub makes, and you can crazily.

The only thing that Internet the useful even vague translation for converting into your own language is.


If you can't make head nor tail of that, then expect the same of the poor guy you've just subjected to the translation.

I thought you and your merry band of god botherers would be used to touring around Europe spreading the message of H.e.a.l.ing :)

I don't know about the mountains but Brussels is awful, good beer but not much else.

Of course, it's my mother tongue :) but I prefer to use English most of time. Except for swearing of course, it's a lot more guttural and expressive, and the amount of creative permutations you can incorporate into blasphemy are almost infinite :D

You guys complained about the German's coming to Poland about 70 years ago!


touche

tou-effing-che!

I'm hanging out with two girls at the moment, one's German and the other's Polish, they got on well together but the conversation does get slightly awkward at times :)

Actually, seeing how easily these divisions seem to come up, maybe a bunch of Europeans meeting in one place to shoot stuff isn't such a good idea after all hehe

It was a three hour drive for me (thats one-way), but well worth it! :D
I picked up BTB and some other spudder at 1/3rd.
Those trebuchets slinged the pumpkins faster then I imagined. They made a loud SWOOOSH!!! sound and like BTB said, one of them made a very loud "BANG!"
Those Belgians are crazy, they fire pumpkins at someone in a car, and towards a bunch of cows, 600m up ahead. One of the pumpkins landed within 5 meter from a cow... :shock:

Next year is going to be even more awesome... we can shoot stuff in front of an audience, and they will like it. :D
If we could only find some big (reallly big) pipes to shoot pumpkins out of, we might introduce pneumatic chunkin in Belgium...

We have exactly one year to build something enormous and drag it 200km into Belgium. :twisted:
This week I will be modding the pilot valve for BTB's " opening shot cannon".



It would be GREAT fun if some of you guys could come over too.
I may be possible to offer someone a place to sleep for a night if that is necessary.
BTW, this is the location.
It is close to Calais, so I expect at least one Englishman to show up. :roll:



EDIT:
Stay ontopic guys.... please...

It's Versailles all over again! This means we *think* they only have slingshots, but in fact they have outsourced their spudding to places like Sweden... damn, Larda! I knew it :shock: :D

Not that again... :roll:

Anyway, I'm a God botherer botherer. It's much more fun to poke holes in the beliefs of any God botherer who turns up at the front door than to just tell them to go away.
Problem is, I think most of the local ones have now learnt to avoid our house like the plague.

Except for swearing of course, it's a lot more guttural and expressive, and the amount of creative permutations you can incorporate into blasphemy are almost infinite.

I do a similar thing with a language I wrote. Don't often speak it, other than to swear, generally be vulgar, or sometimes simply be angry in. (Great fun with mates, who have no idea if or how much they've been insulted.)

That said, I write quite a lot in it - it's perfect for anything I don't want others to read.

What have political conflicts and swearing to do with throwing a pumpkin over 700 meters?

Not the types to keep on topic I think.. :D

I think I thought I wanted to remember not to forget to recall Rag stated something about if some shooting would be involved he would be more likeley to show up... :roll:
me thinks...


Rag...you do realise you'll have the opportunity to fire a cannon in front of 5000 people if you were to come, right?
And to get away with it...might even get cheered....

Did I? I remember saying it would be neat to have a meet-up, but that it wouldn't be simple on my part.

Rag...you do realise you'll have the opportunity to fire a cannon in front of 5000 people if you were to come, right?

Bear in mind, we are still talking about something that's a year away. Circumstances may well be much more favourable come next year. Equally, they may be a right pig.
For that reason, much though I'd like to attend, I can't/shouldn't say anything about the feasibility of it.

psycix wrote:What have political conflicts and swearing to do with throwing a pumpkin over 700 meters?

Is it not obvious? You've got to practise the swearing for when your attempt to hurl said pumpkin goes horribly wrong. Similar thing for any other launcher, to tell the truth.

Using a language no-one else has any grip on whatsoever means I can be as colourful as I'd like, regardless of company.
