    What does "мне закиды" mean?

    /question.
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Закиды - device for fishing, as a rule for catching catfish
    The word is used very, very rarely, and few people know it in Russia.

    ...or, otherwise, it is a kind of free slang. Context is needed.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Re: What does "мне закиды" mean?

    my first guess would be that it means "send me" (by sms or email) the standard form would be "закинь" from the verb кидать/ закидать/ закинуть - to throw.

    Re: What does "мне закиды" mean?

    It looks like a nonsense to me. If you analyze it grammatically, the second word is a noun (закида) whatever it means, haha.
    So the possible constructions with these two words could be "Мама подарила мне закиды" (Mama gave me 'zakidas' as a present.) lol
    So you get the idea, it's sort of nonsense. Maybe is should be "мне закинь" which means "shoot/throw to me"

    Re: What does "мне закиды" mean?

    This is, indeed, some sort of nonsense, but it reminds me of such a phrase as: "Брось мне эти закидоны!", which can be translated into English as "Stop to behave in such a way!"
    "Закидоны" means "strange things of one's character". http://www.slovoborg.ru/definition/%...BE%D0%BD%D1%8B
    Please, correct my mistakes.

    Закидоны could be a way to say закидушки - fishing accessories
