So, I'm an uncle from now on.

Should I teach him programming/mapping or both in a few years ? ^^

Je ne pense pas que le cartographie est une compétence utile. Mais c'est amusant!
(Est-ce bien le français? J'ai besoin de la pratique.)

Congrats to you, your sibling, and their partner!

Also yeah, teach your nephew programming once he's old enough to comprehend it - always a marketable skill, and great as a hobby too!

Thanks to everyone ^^

@Jessie : Very nice, just 2 minor things :

"cartographie" is female so you have to use "la" instead of "le".

You have to add a space before ? and !

"You have to add a space before ? and !"

I guess that's a French thing then? Because most people with English as their first language don't leave a space on question marks, exclamation marks or commas.. Not even on the triple dots...

Edit: Yeah, it's a Frenchie thing. Stalked a French friend's Facebook profile and found this:

"~Snip~ ...joie, le bonheur et la réussite inondent votre vie ! "
They do leave spaces. Derp.

Getting back to topic, remember, if you teach something and his parent's get pissed off because he's addicted to it and does it a lot, it's on your head from then on, and probably will be what's going to happen to me when I teach my niece about Combat Flight Sims, Flight sims, aircrafts, Firearm discipline and how to shoot. :')

I consider a space before ? and ! to be a "sarcasm emphasis" on a sentence, so from now on I'm going to assume French people are always sarcastic :)

Example:
Not sarcastic: You can do it!
Sarcastic: You can do it !
Even more sarcastic: You can do it...!

Never thought it has any significance apart from that it was not the right way. But it looks so much better when you do put a space before a question mark, don't you agree ? :D

This is a "french convention" to leave a space before certain types of punctuation. In English, this is considered as an error except in certain circumstances like sentences ending with an URL. let me give you a few examples (if you know what the sentences means, then you are good ^^ ) :

Avez-vous envoyé votre rapport à l'administrateur aujourd'hui ?

Urby et Archie sont les développeurs de The Core. C'est quand qu'on pourra y jouer ?

Mon dieu ! Gordon est encore en retard pour l'expérience. L'administrateur va encore s'énerver.

TWHL possède des niveaux intéressants et par conséquent des gens talentueux.

Quelle est l'heure française pour les diffusions en direct de Tetsu0 s'il vous plaît ?
Commented 1 year ago2017-04-12 11:47:02 UTC Comment #61525
Don't worry folks, I can translate:
  • Have you submitted your report to the administrator today?
  • Urby and Archie claim to be working on The Core. But did you know they're actually sleeping instead?
  • Oh dear! Gordon is being a dumbass like always. The administrator is going to stab him again.
  • TWHL is an interesting place for attractive, talented people. (no question marks in here???)
  • Can Tetsu0 please only speak French from now on?
Commented 1 year ago2017-04-12 12:49:03 UTC Comment #61528
Huh, I didn't know that. Is it just the question/exclaimation marks? I've seen them with a space before, but I didn't think anything of it.

Alright, here's the translations just from what I can recognize/[assume].
  • Have you sent your report to the administrator [today]?
  • Urby and Archie are the developers of The Core. [When can we play it?] (I don't understand the structure of the last sentence, though I recognize most of the words.)
  • My god! Gordon is [still?] late for the [experiment?]. The administrator [still... something].
  • TWHL has interesting [something] and therefore talented [people?]
  • What is the French time for Tetsu0's [streams?], please?
(I submit for your consideration, "Pingouingarçon", "Chasseur", and, uh... "Urbainébuleuse". Also, FOURMI M'AIME!)

@Penguinboy : translations are correct assuming your theory of sarcasm is 100% right xD

@Jessie : Perfect for the first one with "today". Same for second. Third, the something is "maps" ("levels" is accepted as well. Fourth, perfect as well.

Putaaaaaaaaaaan
(Sorry, my French teacher used it and so did my Frenchie friend. Love that word. <3 )

@Ghost129er : It's "putain" ^^

To remember it easily, think of "Vladimir Putin" and just add an "a" between the "t" and "i". ^^

And yes, that image is true, people only recognize our wine and food, speaking of food, here's one of our popular desserts, the "Paris-Brest" :

Oh right, but this guy always pronounced it like that so I'd think it's that. Putainnn.

We went from nephew to France in a pretty quick 4 replies. Speaking of French desserts, my ex always tried to convince that Crêpes were the best thing. Not compared to my big, fluffy pancakes they aren't. I also remember her father making this amazing meal for us, and he used this 'special cheese' which was like only produced/sold at a certain season or something? Was in a wooden box like thing and heated up then spread all over either the bread or whatever I ate, was really good. But yeah, that's about my French food experience.

Y'know, I've never really had much care to travel, but I think France would be a contender. The other contenders are Canada and Japan.

I mean, I hold no real sentimentality for Australia, so I guess those are also contenders for "countries that might be nice to move to someday". (Weeell... maybe not Japan.)

Congratulations, now you can make uncle jokes :P

"Urby and Archie claim to be working on The Core. But did you know they're actually sleeping instead?"

Haha! Sleeping? That's a laugh. :|

That's not to say we ARE working on The Core of course, but I'm certainly not bloody sleeping. :P

That's what you signed up for when you... uh... y'know.

I agree with Tetsu.

You should teach him calculus, of course.

Teach him how to cook a stew while dancing to disco music.
