  •  Well, you mean other than asking "why (4+ / 0-)

    he's so stupid, cowboy?" in Russian?

      It's "Why are you a stupid cowboy?". Russian handles the various forms of "to be" differently (actually, it skips it entirely for the most part). This is one of many reasons that Google translate is "good, but not great".

      As I said down the line, I'm willing to play fair, and if the guy gives the issue a fair shake, I'll be happy to let him go unchallenged. But this is California and these are young college students...if he comes in here with "be afraid!" as plan A and no plan B, I'm not going to take that lying down. I'm too old to be nice.
