I do not understand a single thing you said. :(
"You can't just remain a root forever. Eventually you grow and change into other things, like stems and leaves and such. Are a tree's leaves an insult to its roots?" - Sade

"It is easy for a statesman, whether he be in the Cabinet or the Chamber, to blow a blast with the wind of popularity on the trumpet of war, warming himself the while at his own fireside; or to thunder orations from this tribune and then to leave it to the musketeer who is bleeding to death in the snow whether his system win fame and victory or no. There is nothing easier than that; but woe to the statesman who in these days does not look around him for a reason for war which will hold water when the war is over." - Otto von Bismarck

I got everything before the ellipsis, but then it went into modern slang...

"Like as not it is a first." - Is this because you're the third person who has countered the no dancing cliche, or because the dancing pine martin could well be the first ever Feilan to dance?

"Props to Littlewing!" - To be honest with you, I have no idea what this means...

props is slang for good job

so giving someone 'props' would be a way of saying 'good job' for whatever.

"Props" is actually a shortened version of "Proper respects". Therefore, the comment "Props to LittleWing" would in an extended sense mean, "Proper respects to LittleWing". Many modern slang words are in fact not very modern at all, and have their original roots in many different languages and time periods. You'd be surprised to hear how many words we use daily originated from Irish Gaelic or Latin.

Better than CHAV slang. I swear sometimes when I walk down town, most of the other teenagers are speaking their own language.

That's the worst thing. I'm a teenager; I should understand this slang. Why didn't I get the memo for these things!?

Heh, I know that feeling Zakorath.

I just came to Aussie. Well, I'm a bit language savvy so I can get a hint of some of the slang they use here, but sometimes I just go WTF.

Man... we've really gone off topic here.

How did we get onto this again?

Oh well... At least the thread's getting some loving.
