RA 02 - Latin by Genidoxian RA 02 - Latin by Genidoxian
This is how I study for the National Latin Exam. :B

Feel free to point out any grammar errors or poor word choices.

Literal Translation (including word order)
1: You I tell...the moon expedition...did not happen!
2: Is it not obvious? What are you saying, the evidence otherwise points? A BOOB believing in nonsense you are!
3: What now me you call? You I will kill!

...yeah, Latin is like Yoda-speak.

Yes, it's me again...
1: "te" := "tibi", "lunam...contingere" := "expeditionem ad lunam numquam contigisse"
2: "estne...manifestus" := "nonne manifestum est", "indicium...derigit" := "indicia esse contraria", "uber...es" := "uber es, qui hanc fabulam credis"
3: "iam me nomines" := "me nominavisti"

Actually, the 'contigisse' that you are suggesting would just be easier as, "expeditionem ad lunam numquam facta est," since 'fio' is the most common form of 'to happen.'

But kudos to you, I am very impressed with your knowledge of Latin, particularly your use of 'nonne!' How long have you studied this beloved language?

I know coming from a Latin 2 this may be totally off base, but for 'you I will kill' be a form of Necare? or am I losing it again? XD

Nope, you're totally right. "Occidere" also means "to kill", but it also carries funny connotations such as "die" or "slaughter", so I used that because I felt like it. :P Latin irony = the nerdiest thing ever.
