De gustibus et cibi et litterarum non est disputandum.  :-)  Re uere,
uerbum "uidete" cum id usus sum dicebat "watch."  Probabilior sit hodie
exclamatio "Ecce aues insolitas!"

Me placet inuenire alium qui Latine scribit.

We could go on a long time here, I sense, throwing more and more arcane
fragments of dead languages at each other.  Sorry I started it.  :-)
Let's talk dinosaurs instead.
