    How to translate *$#%*

    How do you translate

    "intellectual masturbation"

    I got to translate that meaning, but really I'm not sure it is feasible. I mean in English (and french for that matter), it is not rude to say that. Usually funny.

    Thx

    Mord

    PS: Plz no reply like "учить русский язык"

    not моральный, but интеллектуальный: интеллектуальный онанизм. you're perfectly safe to use it in conversation. Between men you can say интеллектуальная суходрочка (but this one's a bit on the rude side).

    Hey Death,

    I was an exchange student in Germany (just for a month).

    You say you don't speak German, but you said it IN GERMAN. Seems like you can.

    Also you called me Sie. Was I supposed to say vous to you? It seems like French speakers are more stringent about that than German speakers.

    And to relate this somehow to Russian, since they have the different "yous" too I wonder how strict they are about it. I saw the Russian news and they were saying 'you informal' to eachother but I think on the German news they always use the formal. The "yous" drive me nuts.

    Sorry I can't help you with your masturbation problems.

    Вообще-то, "intellectual masturbation" переводится как "интеллектуальная мастурбация". И звучит совсем не грубо, научно так.
