    Stupid shit I thought up to say.

    Submitted for your corrections.



    Без сомнения, большую часть человичества составляют из сумасшедшых беззубых каргы, которые боятся насекомых. По этой причине, я, в качестве защитника бабушек, обязан помочь.

    Эсли Вы любитель насекомых, я очень сожалаю о Вас, потому что я беспощдно обязан разрушить всех животных более чем четырьмя ногами полдень послезавтра. Завтра выходной.

    Прибегая к суровым мерам, я собираюсь добиваться одновременную смерть всех насекомых. Я ничего не пощажу. Все погибнут. А потом пообедаю……и возможно имейте мои ноги сделав скудно одетыми девочками, которые любят меня только для моих больших бицепсов.


    This is what I meant to say:-

    Without a doubt the biggest part of humanity is made up of crazy toothless hags who are afraid of insects. For this reason, I, as the protector of grandmas, am obliged to help.

    If you are a lover of insects I am sorry for you because I am mercilessly compelled to destroy all animals with more than four legs by midday the day after tomorrow. Tomorrow is my day off.

    Resorting to drastic measures, I am going to work for the simultaneous death of all insects. I will spare none. All will perish. Afterwards I shall dine.......and maybe have my nails done by scantily clad girls who love me only for my big biceps.

    Online-translated?

    It's better to rewrite it from scratch and without using an online-translator.

    An online translater wouldn't do that. Multitran and Seerlc.

    Here's the first draft. I tried to keep changes to a minimum.

    Без сомнения, большую часть человечества составляют сумасшедшие беззубые карги, которые боятся насекомых. По этой причине, я, в качестве защитника бабушек, обязан им помочь.

    Если Вы любитель насекомых, я очень вам сочувствую, потому что я обязан беспощадно разрушить всех животных более чем с четырьмя ногами к полудню послезавтрашнего дня. Завтра у меня выходной.

    Будучи сторонником суровых мер, я собираюсь добиться одновременной смерти всех насекомых. Я никого не пощажу. Все погибнут. А потом я пообедаю……и, возможно, сделаю себе маникюр с помощью скудно одетых девочек, которые любят меня только за мои большие бицепсы.

    Thanks, that's clearing up a lot of questions I had.

    I wanted to use this word
    Прибегая but I see that you have used Будучи сторонником. How can I use this word прибегать?

    I am not very happy with this Будучи сторонником суровых мер, я собираюсь... It's not accurate, but I'd like to keep the sentence structure intact.

    Применяя эти суровые меры, я собираюсь...? Anyone?

    You can use it, I just don't like the overall structure. I sense there is a slight difference in the meanings if translated literally

    Maybe this is OK

    Прибегая к этим суровым мерам, ...

    Somehow I am stuck here, and I have to go. Let's see what other people suggest.

    DDT, what you said can be roughly translated as:

    and maybe (you) have my legs, having made poorly dressed girls.


    Now
    скудно одетые = poorly/badly/cheaply dressed

    "scantily clad" = something like "сексуально одетые" or "слабо одетые" or (couple of monstrous structures) "облаченные в одежду, демонстрирующую прелести" or "облаченные в одежду, выставляющую прелести напоказ".
    Can't come up with the right words though.
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Yeah, I thought that ноги construction must have been some sort of idiom because my dictionary kept translating fingernails as legs or nails for hammering into wood. It also translates


    скудно as scantily or barely aswell as poorly/cheaply/ badly.

    Your dictionary just misses one letter:

    fingernails = ногти (not ноги)

    Perhaps that way will work. Let me just replace two parts of what adoc wrote:
    Я собираюсь добиться одновременной смерти всех насекомых, прибегнув к суровым мерам.
    Я так думаю.

    It was probably my eyes that were mistaken.

    Good luck with that one, make sure there is no police around.

    Some more.......

    I have just returned victorious but it is possible that I didn’t quite kill all the insects. If you happen to see any nasty bug, please squash it! In spite of the fact that I am The Protector Of Grandmas, by no means should I be held accountable because of that. The thing is that a few years ago I developed an allergy to spiders.

    Я только что вергулся победным, но можно что я не совсем так не убивал все насекомых. Эсли Вы случайно увидете любой гадкий жук, пожалуйста раздавливайте его! Несмотя на то, что я Защитника Бабушек, никоим образом я должен быт ответственный из-за того. Дело в том, что несколько лет назад я развивал аллергию пауков.

    Я только что вернулся победителем, но возможно, что я убил не всех насекомых. Если вы случайно увидите какого-нибудь мерзкого жука, пожалуйста, раздавите его! Несмотря на то, что я - Защитник Бабушек, я никоим образом не несу ответственность из-за этого (I think it's better to leave out "из-за этого" though). Дело в том, что несколько лет назад у меня развилась/появилась/возникла аллергия на пауков.

    Thanks!

    Is it possible to give the inflection in Russian "not quite" as in " I didn’t quite kill all the insects. "??
