it means "error in the original" and used to point out errors in an original source you are quoting so that folks know it's not a (your) mistake, it was wrong from the start. And the context here is sort of "everything wrong is DICE's fault". Except it was much more elegant and funny the way West36 said it.

The other thing I love about Germans is their ability to take some ribbing without getting huffy about it. After all, we all know that WWII was just a gigantic plot to get back at the Poles after they snuck into Berlin on Polish New Year's (August 30) and painted all the panzers pink...

: There was a great program a while ago called Philspell, which used the standard Unix ispell library but, instead of correcting anything, just put (sic) after each misspelled word...

Everybody here always forgets Belgium. :mad: If you talk about good school systems -> Belgium is one of the best

If you talk about learning languages -> Belgium is one of the best

Always talking about the dutch ... If you hear them talk french, you will roll on the floor :lol:

Post scriptum: I did two years of latin, but went to economics that is in my opinion more useful and interesting.
