    Dont be a wanker, ninny, loser ect..

    How does one both inform his friend of said friend's idiot status and request he step down from it-- In as few words as possible?

    It is Winter and Very Cold.

    What about
    Не будь дураком.

    дурак сущ. фразы | предложения | g-sort
    общ. fool; simpleton; bone-head; booby; blunderhead; jacka**; foozle; noddy; a**; cuddy; goose; idiot; moke; stupe; tomfool; zany; wise man of Gotham; you fool; Gothamite; jolter-head; juggins; oxhead; ratbag; tom-noddy; gowk; a man of Gotham; a wise man of Gotham
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    kwatts59 is right. Where is also: "не прикидывайся дураком" (don`t play a fool)
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    Never heard of that idiom! I wouldn't waste time memorizing it, since we won't understand it if you say it
