  • English to Latin Star Wars Quotes and beyond?

    Does anyone out there with a better understanding of Latin help me translate a few quotes? I've gotten somewhere in the ballpark, but I don't think it's right.

    May the force be with you-

    Vis c.u.m te sit? or should that be tecum?

    Bacchus hath drowned more men than Neptune.- Thomas Fuller

    Bacchus amplius quam Neptunum merserat.

    The she-wolf howls loudest before dawn. (don't ask)

    Lupa magnissima voce ante auroram ululat.

  • What would you coinsider to be utopia?

    And can such a place exist in real life?

    Bear in mind: the term "utopia" is derived from the greek words, "ou" (no) and "topos" (place/land); literally "no place/land"

  • Alberta Oil Supply?

    In Alberta, a province in Canada, there lays an Oil supply estimated currently at 175-300 billion retrievable barrels, with still vast amounts unknown and currently unretrievable. Currently public awareness about this is relatively low. Only 4 percent of Americans believe that Canada's the US's largest supplier of Oil (true fact). If public awareness of this is raised, and obstacles to the building of new pipelines between Canada and the US are removed, what effects might it have on America's economy, view towards fossil fuels, etc?

  • Who wrote this version of the end of Oedipus?

    My mythology studies have given me this alternate version of the discovery of Oedipus's identity, but gives no author. Here are the details:

    Oedipus marries his mother, Jocasta,(unknowingly) and by her has 4 children: Polynices, Eteocles, Antigone, and Ismene. However, a messenger from the nearby city-state of Corinth recognizes Oedipus and reveals to him that he has married his own mother, Jocasta. Jocasta commits suicide, and in despair Oedipus blinds himself and is banished.

    I know this is from a play because I found exerpts from the play, but I can't find the name of the play or the author can you?
