    Of course, I am for freedom of speech. But I am not sure that it should be allowed to write in Russian, for example, on the forum. Usually it's insults or something absolutely moronic. :)

    I am ready to remove my signature in Russian, of course, too :)

    Johnson, My cousin took Russian in high school. He would tell me what he learned at lunch time. He told me the next time I saw the teacher to say, and I am typing this phonetically> "dough brie nitz".
    Judging from the look on the teacher's face, it did NOT mean, "See ya later!" I ran to my locker.

    That teacher came from Russia. His mama used to call him, again phonetically, "Bunyoul". So everyone else called him that too. I asked him years later what Bunyoul meant and he laughed and said it was a term of endearment. What does it mean exactly?

    We tolerate the language of the left.

    As for dough brie, I think that it may be 'dobriy' (good). But nitz and bunyoul...
    Maybe Sbyker can guess it, so far I have not any suggestion what it may be :)

    I think he just didn't understand a thing as well as I :)

    actually, I have a guess.... Probably it was 'dobroy nochi' - good night.

    Dobry is good, no"tz" (noc) in Czech is night, but Czechs would say dobroo notz (dobrou noc). Slavic languages have many words in common of course.

    Maybe. What ever I said to him didn't seem to go over well. He looked at me like, "I can't believe you just said that to me!"
    My dad was in Las Vegas on an R&R from WW2, and all of a sudden he heard, "BUNYOUL!" and knew that Nick was there.
    I would ask him but he has since passed. What a good guy he was.

    Well, the Czech language is quite close to Russian...

    I can't even imagine a Russian word which resembles it :)
