between a sea story and a fairy tale?

The fairy tale starts out, "Once upon a time," the sea story starts out, "Now this is no s**t."

On advice of counsel, I'm going to quit perpetuating the story.

Prolly a wise move. But the original seems good enough. It's some motto!

I can vouch for the reality of the plaque and the "Ave nobilis dux, iterum factum est" wording--saw it with my own eyes. The only question was whether sactum was a legitimate Latin word which would validate "the rest of the story."

"...Kundalini, at the base of the spine."

Wonder if there is an etymological connection between Kundalini and kundingi, which is the Korean word for that area of the human body sometimes refered to in less polite company as the ass.


Inspiration; or, a trickster at work? #103114

I know it's almost 10 years later, but I have this big bronze plaque in my basement that I picked up at a flea market about 15 years ago. I typed the Latin words into Google, and this thread popped up. The plaque I have has a repaired "F" and a repaired "22" on the 1522 date. The new letters were brazed on. The plaque weighs about 60 pounds. I thought you might find this to be of interest. :-)

I am curious as to what you typed into Google.The "Ave..." above?
As this thread is dead for the last ten years, how
did you manage to come up here?

if you google: "Ave nobilis dux, iterum factum est" this thread is the second hit (at least for me, ymmv). the internet doesn't care too much about the time frame.
