Thanks For Asking....The Reply I Got Today....

at least wasn't "Stickiti Youpus Recti," LOL! Here is what the v.p. Pat Hopper sent back today, "John, I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced. This is not what I intend nor Duratek intends business to be done. Nothing other than I screwed up. I appreciate your candor so I/Duratek can somehow rectify the situation.


He didn't exactly nominate me for "Director of Regulatory Compliance," but he may remember me someday for supervisor of "Humugus Sili Wit Cahounis." LMFAOAM. CF? :eek:hwell:

Quid quid latine dictum sit, altum viditur

It's not real latin. It is from one of the Harvard Band's fight songs, the Ten Thousand Men of Harvard. It comes from Illegitimum, or Illigitamate, and the mineral Carborundum, which is very hard and frequently used for making grinding wheels. Hence, you get Bastids Don't Grind, or Don't let them grind you down. The song is all made up Latin to sound and is sort of a joke.

Here's the song,


First Verse
Illegitimum non carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Illegitimum non Carborundum;
Domine salvum fac.
Gaudeamus igitur!
Veritas non sequitur?
Illegitimum non carborundum -- ipso facto!

Fourth Verse
Ten thousand men of Harvard want vict'ry today,
For they know that o'er old Eli
Fair Harvard holds sway.
So then we'll conquer old Eli's men,
And when the game ends, we'll sing again:
Ten thousand men of Harvard gained vict'ry today!
