well, technically it does not, Adronicarse... you see, the subjunctive mood of caveat is iussive; so rather than an imperative order (id est, Buyer Beware), it's more like a gentle warning (id est, Let the Buyer Beware, or May the Buyer Beware)...

Sorry, sorry. I'm an arsehole who does legal studies, and doesnt know a thing about Latin. Just thought I'd post here cos hardly anyone does.
You people are great!

The truth can hurt some. But alas, no one understands. :D

Thanks! Although Ive already proven myself a fool. I doubt you will see me here again. I'm off to non-school, where ignorance is embraced!

I thought is was more like - "In truth, my dear, I don't care at all." :D

*waves at Weisy*
*waves at flyin*

Re vera, mea cara, nihil curo = "Frankly m'dear, I don't give a damn." Well that's the Pooolish translation *glances at Weisy*

Geez, I haven't been in this forum for aaaaaaages =) nice to be back and see all these '03 ppl keeping the Latin spirit alive...

Ah, how I miss those afternoons trying to figure out whether "sewage metaphor" or "lavatorial metaphor" was a better way to describe "sentina"... and all the while trying to make sure our Latin teacher didn't make another joke about Russian bears and their sex lives...

*sigh* Those were the days... getting all nostalgic now =)
