QUAM DIU ETIAM FUROR ISTE TUUM NOS ELUDET or How long is that madness of yours still to mock?

Taken on the Anti-Brexit march a couple of weeks ago - translation according to Google - I am not a Latin scholar - didn't go to a posh school. Made me chuckle GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Aimed at Boris and Dominic, who regard fluency in Latin as a sign of superior intelligence. It's not proof though...

Only a potential sign, among many.

My own belief is that the intellectual hierarchy is topped by the pure mathematicians, followed by the physicists and then the engineers. They can actually do stuff, like making reactors work (and switching reactors off), designing wind turbines, and mending broken dams.

Well - the engineers can. Even if they don't speak Latin (and in some cases, seem to struggle with English).
