a little latin

Everone needs to know a little latin.
You just never know when you want to make statements like these:
Vidi Vici Veni I saw, I conquered, I came
I have to say, I like the modification of this to:
Vidi, Vici, Velcro I saw, I conquered, I stuck around

Si hoc signum legere potes, operis boni in rebus Latinus alacribus et fructuosis potiri potes! If you can read this sign, you can get a good job in the fast-paced, high-paying world of Latin!

Recedite, plebes! Gero rem imperialem! Stand aside plebians! I am on imperial business.

Fac ut vivas. Get a life.

Anulos qui animum ostendunt omnes gestemus! Let's all wear mood rings!

And finally, here is a useful one.
Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam. I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.
