We've all been there: you need a portentous motto for your new liberal arts college, crack military unit, or world-encompassing secret society, but you just don't speak Latin. No problēma! If the grand list of Latin phrases
doesn't have what you're looking for, there's always the Latin Motto Generator

On TV on any given night:
• Party Baby: Game show contestants with a shoe box full of cash, combating threats to our rain forest, almost always confused by what's going on, find out that even when you lose, you win.
• Star Trek: The Next Generation: Whlist studying a pre-warp civilization, Wesley falls ill when the Enterprise encounters an apparent duplicate of Riker which is in fact a holographic simulation, so Riker delivers a phaser blast, which means everything turns out okay, though Picard has had to deal with children. Then, finally Guinan says something cliche and they leave at warp factor five.

ALL historical evils stem from the failure to accept and be governed by the law of electro-temporal-time compensation.
They altered the Sphinx to conceal the truth about the law of electro-temporal-time compensation. the Club of Rome and their accomplices, David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger, are systematically suppressing knowledge of the SECRET of Nature’s law of electro-atomic inequality.
the UNIVERSAL HARMONIC CONSTANT is 7.2304852305381. only from this value can one calculate the TRUE ORBITS OF THE PLANETS.
End wars, sexual frustration, etc. — adopt Holy Spirit field science now!
Fun with randomosity, via Del.icio.us/popular
Sometimes Friday Fun doesn't have to involve Flash. Take, for example, the Random Vin Diesel Fact Page
, or other existing ones, some serious
, some not so serious
There's also random news generators
and even random band name
Plenty of reloading, time-wasting fun for your Friday.
The Generator Blog
describes and links to about 190 Generator sites, where you can make all sorts of different things online: Dymo-style labels
, Wisconsin city names
, walking insects
, Bart Simpson chalkboards
, Guitar Chords
, Sound effects
(onomatopoeia) and more.
Disclaimer: I found out about this in my HTTP logs, so while nothing here is a self-link, one of those 190 generator links is. Tiptoe carefully around it.
The George Bush Conspiracy Generator
...is long overdue, and will make the lives of certain Mefi'ers just a little easier.
Still, I think it needs some work. It's nowhere near as clever as an old favorite, Web Economy Bullshit Generator,
the output of which I've actually inserted in proposals.
Another Wacky Face Generator Flash Thingy
Look! It's wacky! It has Hitler, and George W. Bush! And you can make their faces wackier! Wheee.
Friday Fun!! Got a question for the Axis of Chicken Hawks?
"The Official Simulation Act of 2002 created the Dept. of Official Simulation (DoOS) and tasked it with minimizing time wasted on media availability by certain U.S. Government officials who have been designated as essential to national security.
DoOS makes available for press conferences and interviews simulated officials virtually identical to the originals with regard to talking points, lucidity and veracity"
Try it! The answers are hilarious!! (thanks to busybusybusy)
Cheer Down With Cioran, The Big Daddy Of Miserable Bastards:
Grab some instant cynical nihilism from the E.M.Cioran Random Generator
! Is it any wonder the late, great aphorist is so unpopular in academe? Meanwhile, in Spike Magazine
, Stephen Mitchelmore
is the latest in a long series of critics to try and spread the old master's noble rot.
The Euphemism Generator
can create up to 68,289,490 unique phrases! Do you have a favorite euphemism?
waferbaby's new teen log generator
produces random paragraphs each time you reload, like: "life is so unfair :/ i need a new host. rofl! haha i wish i got an anti-bloggie, and i'm bitter. i am so not a slut and i'm annoyed. so not going to happen! i wish i was britney." (Buy yourself a webcam, hire a youthful stripper to spend some time in front of it and you may be on your way to getting everything on your Amazon wishlist.)
[pseudo-]Random content generators
- very interesting stuff. I'd love to see human beings act on this content as a sort of selector of aesthetics a la Richard Dawkins
. Be sure to check out the randomly generated comics
