    Short sentence needs translation

    A spam topic was just deleted (along with two of my posts... darn) and in it Barm said something to me that I didn't understand... because it was Russian.

    The sentence:

    Есть такая пословица по-русски, Дмитри? "To nuke" как слэнг?

    I had said that we should nuke spammers and that was what he said in reply.

    Can anyone help put it into English for me so I know what he said?

    Thanks in advance

    Is there the following proverb in Russian, Dimitri? "To nuke" as slang?

    Oops. I didn't want to say proverb; better to say фраза (phrase) or глагол (verb). Now that it's got its own post, I don't care about Dmitri answering it per se, but anybody who knows.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I don't know this phrase! пословица is translated as 'proverb'.

    It means to "blow up with a nuclear weapon," but it's developed a more casual usage as well. Anything that's blow up or even when people microwave food can sometimes be referred to as having been "nuked."

    Yeah.. my mom says that when she microwaves things, so it's not so serious a term anymore.

    But still, if you were talking about nuclear weapons, what exactly were you saying to me, considering there is a question mark?

    If you're talking about the translation you requested, I was simply asking Dmitri (or anyone listening) if there is a Russian term that means "to nuke." If you're referring to something else, then I forget what we were even talking about...

    We have alreayd clarified the question was not aimed at you! It was aimed at Dimitri. Does one of the Ds in DDL stand for Dimitri or something?

    Not exact an equivalent but yes. There actually is....

    But it is not to be spoken aloud among decent auditory.

    (Most decent translation would be "to destroy utterly and absolutely")

    it begins with "разпи"
    and ends with "здячить".

    Don't take it any more seriously than it actually is.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    That term is not supposed to be translated literally, for it means to break (destroy) something (into small pieces scattering in the air), to ruin something completely.
    The stress is made on the completeness and fullness of the action.

    don't mistake with "пиздячить" - to go/ride/drive/fly somewhere far enough the continuety of that process or the distance of travel becomes worth mentioning.

    don't mistake with "пиздить" - to beat (violently) someone, or to steal something

    don't mistake with "распиздяй" - a very unenthusiastic to any kind of work person, who doesn't pay attention to any detail, very careless and negligent and therefore -untrustworthy and incapable of doing anything properly.
    (Though it may also be used to refer a young man)
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Wow, how'd you guess?

    I was making sure I understood it correctly, and fortunately Barm helped.

    DDL, I'd like you to meet TATY. TATY, DDL... TATY's posts here vary between: a)jackasstasic, b)incredibly helpful, c)downright funny. The guy knows his stuff, but he's also incredibly abrasive at times... He's probably the only person here who's been banned AND has made hundreds (if not thousands) of really useful posts...
