i found out some odd things today Leno=Pimp in Latin
Actually, we dont really know what the swear words were in latin. They werent recorded. Just because the translation means something bad in english doesnt mean that it was bad at all in latin. For Example, Damno (yes, thats where we get Damn) means 'comdemn' in latin. Also, many of those words have different meanings that are interpreted into english in the translators liking.
[QUOTE]Canis filius Son of a Bitch (lit: son of a female dog)[quote] is a good example. Most of those words have just been translated differently.
so leno still means pimp
:lol: I would have never seen that and thought of Jay Leno.
well, loosly translated, yes. But if you translate according to latin, it means pretty much the same thing in different words. The correct latin translation for this word is Smooth, Gentle or Kind.
The cream of the crop

actually, my earlier translation is incorrect. Literally it means A Middle-man. But it is correct to translate it as pimp.
