"Eat bitch"
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

There is none, Americans don't really enjoy eating as a family any more.

It's weird, there is no English word meaning libre (free as in freedom).

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

Yeah, I was thinkin about enjoy your meal, but for some reason, something less anal was on the tip of my tounge...

By American stereotypes, it's a bunch of gibberish. You can't hear it, it's muffled by the double digit amount of chins.

Iommi has work done to it.

The literal translation doesn't work, which is why english speaking people still say the french one.

Well I'm not saying you all fail at french, but I just find it weird that EVERYBODY that speaks english says it "Bonne appetite".

Hell, even my english teacher said it like that, and she's french.

When something is free, do you call it freedom?

If, by some chance, people were giving away free albums, would you say:
Yeah, that album is freedom.

No, you'd say it's free, but it's not, you are not allowed to infringe the copyrights on that CD, it is no libre, it is gratis.

Libre means free as a human being dude.

So we don't say an album is libre, we say it's "gratuit" (which means free).

Gratis means free as in it costs nothing, not that you are free to do anything with it. You are a fool, stop talking.

"We are cheese eating surrender monkeys, all we know is food, love and wine..other than that our country is weak and can be overrun by retarded children"

libre - free as in the ability to do what you choose. E.g 'Free will'
gratis - free as in you do not pay. E.g. Free beer

When something is libre, you are able to do whatever you like with it. If music was libre, we would be allowed to contribute to it and revise it, but we can't because of copyright laws. Say music companies gave you a gratis album. You can hear it, but you can't contribute to it and revise it.

That's exactly what we're both saying. I have no idea where you're trying to go with that conversation :S

Well its imposible to say an object is libre because it cant do whatever it likes because its not alive, libre is used as in human beings, free will like you said, but just because i can do whatever i like to my guitar it doesnt make it "libre", it just makes it mine.

Im talking about spanish here btw, it may be diferent in french.
