Archive for subtitles

Since I can't get anyone else interesting in tags, I'm confident you won't be interested in archiving subtitles either, but I'm going to give it a shot and you should feel free to help out. When you create a new subtitle, make an entry on the new page for "Subtitle Archive" (at the bottom of the column on the right), with the date you published the new subtitle. Optionally, add a link to the source.

Still figuring things out but a few that I saved:

"Nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus" ("We can bear neither our shortcomings nor the remedies for them"). Livy

The newly elected Thatcher takes her all-male cabinet to dinner. "I'll have the beef," says she. "What about the vegetables?" asks the waiter.
"They'll have the same."

You can't junk-punch a guy in his man-business every time he orders a vegetarian sandwich from Subway, no matter how much he deserves it.

Plus the O'Rourke quote I should have put up:

Maybe this isn't such a hopeful moment in history. Really, it's something of a disappointment to know that when mankind--through noble struggles, grim sacrifices (and a lot of money-making)--does achieve such things as property rights, rule of law, responsible government, and universal education, the fruit borne of these splendid accomplishments is, um, me.

Thanks, Scooter. I just pasted those onto the Subtitle Archive page.
