Bonjour, Monsieur Scholl,
Perhaps if you could speak a civilized language we wouldn't have to dub our video with your monkey grunts.

Good good study, day day up

Morbidity is a nice way of saying Death.

This training tool is a wonderful thing. On a serious level, I hope more tools like this get developed to help doctors practice important and tricky procedures.

On a more humorous level, I'd love to see something like this at an arcade.

@2: Close. Morbidity is sickness.

GREAT LINK. Did you already know I am obsessed with languages and dialectical bastardizations? or were you just banking on the hilarity? I love a good idiom, but as the old saying goes:

Nķunda er žat at reka til hinnar fimtu kenningar, er ór ęttum er ef lengra er rekit; en žótt žat finnisk ķ fornskįlda verka, žį lįtum vér žat nś ónżtt.

@3 - oh, don't be so morbid about it.

They've rubbed almost all the skin off of the sample baby's head!

Yeah, but now it's shiny!

@4, I care nothing for your obsessions, I was going for grands éclats de rire.
You got me, my Old Norse is pretty weak, but still, I'm not sure I get your point, is "good good study, day day up" a kenning? it is far more than a replacement for a noun.

Now if I were to refer to our exchange as "aflgerš orša tungu mešalkafla ok boršs naglfara" (the keyboard, after all, being mightier than the icicle of blood) you might have a point.

(you can quote dead Icelandic poets, but I can has Googelz)
