my aquabats

For the language thing: "space" "the" "final" "frontier"

okay first of all i love you

that being said

  • “space” - “kosmos”
  • “the” - hohoho surprise surprise we don’t have such a thing as “the” in Polish; the dictionaries always translate is as “indefinite article, it is not possible to translate it into Polish”
  • “final” - “ostateczny” or “końcowy” or “nieodwołalny” or something else entirely, it depends on the context; like, you’d use “końcowy” when you’d be talking about an exam, “nieodwołalny” with, maybe, a decision, when it’s irreversible, and “ostateczny” with, idk, let’s say, the intro to star trek
  • “frontier” - “granica”

the whole thing can be translated as “KOSMOS, OSTATECZNA GRANICA” with the continuation: “OTO PODRÓŻE STATKU KOSMICZNEGO ENTERPRISE. JEGO PIĘCIOLETNIA MISJIA: BADAĆ DZIWNE NOWE ŚWIATY, SZUKAĆ NOWEGO ŻYCIA I NOWYCH CYWILIZACJI, ŚMIAŁO ZMIERZAĆ TAM, GDZIE NIE DOTARŁ JESZCZE ŻADEN CZŁOWIEK” da da dadadadaaaaa

okay you might have noticed that i said you could use “ostateczny” in the star trek intro, but i used “ostateczna”. this is because nouns and adjectives in Polish have a gender: they’re masculine, feminine or neuter. “granica” is feminine and so the adjective that describes it has to be feminine as well. thus, “ostateczna”. you see, in Polish, almost every feminine noun/adjective has the “a” ending. that is, in the nominative case. because we have seven cases.

isn’t Polish awesome (yes it is)

I’m kind of extremely bitter about my aquabats days now because of the nightmarish void my life was back then and how much of my limited self I poured into that. Also it led me to my worst abuser and also the aquabats as a band are Extremely Disappointing and do nothing but break promises they make to fans and after a while it just got exhausting waiting on things we were told would happen but never did

I did make a few good pals from that fandom though but hoo in its latter days it became a real interesting cesspool to jump ship from
