    I got "cellules du cerveau" from Google. Immersion or no, until today I've never had to use the word (in French). Also, never did figure out what "traffic light" is in French.

    I most certainly did miss it, I think. I don't recall posting in it. I will try and find it now LOL

    We usually just use the word "cellules". As for traffic light we usually use the word "lumière". Like "La lumière à l'intersection" the light at the intersection. I'm sure there are more specific words but as it's 4:30AM right now my brain isn't really awake and in translation mode.

    ^^ The South Africans call traffic lights "robot". What the hell?

    At first I REALLY thought that they had some kind of machine regulating the traffic. One that looks like a human or close to it.

    in québec they tend to translate from english a lot more. here in europe i've never heard braincells called 'cellules du cerveau', people usually say 'neurones'. and traffic lights aren't called 'lumières' but 'feux'. i think the exact term is 'feux de circulation routière' but no one uses that.

    Which remeinds me Sputnik, that after we met up at Effie's in 2008, you'll be hosting The GR Reunion 2009.

    I came up with that after you advertised Geneva so nicely.

    Well we use slang alot . Neurones is right as well as feux de circulation. We do use those too but in everyday life we say for example: "Il lui manque un couple de cellules." (He's missing a few brain cells) or "La lumière au coin de la rue" (The Light at the corner of the street). I've never heard "cellules du cerveau" either just "cellules".

    lol chilly, i said geneva was boring
    clean and pretty, but calvinist and boring and to paraphrase lou reed in smoke, it's too clean and everything works.
    but a GR reunion might spice things up a bit. not sure the swiss could handle that many fat deal-breakers with dodgy base-coats... should be interesting.

    Haha, they'd love us. We could teach them a thing or two about herpes and blow outs.

    I was in Geneva and Lausanne a couple of years ago and as far as I remember, it was lovely, boring, but very lovely.
