Obligatory foreign language Engineering Slogan (Hmmm... Let's try composing something 'FIRST-relevant' in Portuguese today...):

- "Errar é Humano. Arredondar é Basic Stamp..."

(To err is human. To round off is Basic Stamp...)

Was that close?

Do you actually speak Portuguese? Where did you learn it?

Hmmm... I'd think that it should be "If the message is not clear, adjust the brightness OF the screen". However, I'm not sure... Is there a "feminine" connotation to it, like "if HER message is unclear"?

Do you actually speak Portuguese? Where did you learn it?
Sorry, not really. I just happen to dabble in languages (computer and human). But I have heard it before. I'm fortunate enough to live in a college town where people come from all over the world speaking different tongues.

Luckily, Portuguese is a Latin descendant, and fairly close to both French and Spanish, so the written version is not TOO hard for me to parse out (given LOTS of time). But I'd be totally lost if it was spoken to me conversationally (especially at normal speed), or I had to puzzle out more than a snatch of it at a time without a dictionary for the unusual words.

As I sometimes say, "I know enough of several languages to get myself INTO trouble, but not necessarily enough to get myself OUT of it!"

One last crack at Portuguese, then I'm done. I'm going WAY out on a limb this time... Here's one you do NOT want to hear from your teammates during a break at the "2013 International FIRST Finals" in Brazil...

- "POR FAVOR promessa você nunca requisitará o jantar da equipe em Portuguese outra vez..."

("PLEASE promise you'll never try to order the team's dinner in Portuguese again...")

Did I come close?

OOC, do the Engineering Slogans from this thread translate well into Portuguese, or are some too idiomatic to work?

This has been fun! Thanks!

- Keith

Heh, my math teacher told us today:

"It doesn't matter what you failed to practice yesterday, or what you are going to practice tomorrow. Now is now. You have only this moment."

He said that in regards to playing basketball ... but I think it works for FIRST matches too!

It's not really a saying, but we call anything that isn't made nice and solid; "pansy-$@#$@#$@#." The saying began last year, or the year before, when one of the engineers brought in some washers. He said, "I got these pansy-$@#$@#$@# washers here." After that, the phrase has stuck.

We also have a running joke about "Wayne's nuts," but I won't go into that one.

[Edit] Oops, I guess I got filterized. The censored word begins with an 'a' and ends with an 's'. You can figure it out from there. It's not too bad.
