    Arete in a Flemish [Dutch speaking part of Belgium] dialect actually means: "your ass" when pronounced A-ray-teh

    Is Nova a bad name for a car?

    Because in Spanish, it means "no go."

    Reet = ass
    A = (not a word in Dutch)

    Don't know what kind of twisted dialect you speak, NZL, but in Dutch, Arete means nothing.

    OOC- I think Flemish part of Belgium and Netherlands should unite, and toss the poor Wallonians where they belong, in France.

    /Offtopic I don't think that the Flemish and the Dutch would want such a union. In the past, Flanders revolted against Dutch superiority.

    Btw, I do have the book "De leeuw van Vlaanderen" in my possession ;).

    It is pronounced Ah-Reet
    Aristotle's philosophy involves astate of Ideal, called Arete.
    However I like Kwarrior's first suggestion, the Caeneads.

    I don't think the old greeks pronounced Arete the english way. I think it should be pronounced as Ah-Reet-eh

    Ah-Reh-Teh I pronounce it, sounds classic and pure.

    If Badhron, joncnunn and w00ter all change votes from Arethans to Aretans, Aretans would have more than 50 %, does that sound good?

    That would sound good, but one thing...


    We can't change our vote.
