    "you suck!"

    I was watching Futurama in Russian, and heard one of the speakers say something that sounded like either дастал or тастал. It was said at the same time as one would say "you suck!", and I was just wondering about the exact spelling and all that good stuff.

    достал.

    There's a discussion on it here.
    http://masterrussian.net/mforum/viewtop ... E%F8%B8%EB


    slang
    Word: Достать
    Meaning: annoy
    Example: Андрей достал меня своими приглашениями на концерт
    Translation: Andrew annoyed me greatly with his invitiations to a show.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    So how would you say "this sucks" in Russian, это достанет.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I don't think "достал" is a good translation for the phrase.
    Я танцую пьяный на столе нума нума е нума нума нума е
    Снова счастье улыбнулось мне нума нума е нума нума нума е

    1) "это сосет"
    2) ни разу не слышал, чтобы кто-нибудь, не знающий английского, так говорил.

    Хреново listed under the postal indexes for this oblast:
    http://postindex.otrok.ru/37/14.html

    There are also the towns Большое хреново and Малое хреново, though the latter is the only one that has a postal index, and the only one I can see on the image. They're in Рязанская область. Alexei, if you want to do a huge service to this forum, you'll go and take a pic of some road signs around there

    My guess is that Хреново ( a village name ) has an accent on the first syllable: хрЕново but "this sucks" has it on the second one: хренОво.

    BTW Pravit, www.freewebs.com doesn't allow external links to files it hosts and redirects back to referer page, i.e. this one. But there is a way: just copy/paste http://www.freewebs.com/pravit/khrenovo.jpg into address string to get rid of referer info in http request header.

    But a road sign would still be really funny. Those two I mentioned are near the town Сасово, alexei, you should go!

    Unfortunately, the only towns I found with the name "Khui" are in Pakistan.

    Thanks for the suggestion but it's pretty far away. Maybe the sign "река Вобля" will be enough? :) It's in the Moscow region between Moscow and Ryazan, the highway M5 Moscow-Chelyabinsk.
