Latin term or phrase: i hope you die
self explainitory
shane
English translation:Mors tua, gaudium meum
Explanation:
I coined this sentence along the famous latin saying (used often in my family)
"mors tua, vita mea" (your death is my life).
Translated back into English "mors tua, gaudium meum" is "your death, my joy"
which is not a literal translation but has a more Latin ring to it.
I went to school in the old system when we studied Latin for some 8 years!
