Actually, it's veni, not vini. Vini means I w(h)ined tongue

"Omnia Gallia in tres partes divisa est." 

Julius Caesar

 

I just knew five years of Latin would eventually come in handy!

I don't know what this has to do with PC, unless they removed my prostate in three segments.

Four parts, if you include Asterix the Gaul's village.
 
ex morbo convalesceribo
 
I'll stand corrected, but I think that means:
 
I shall recover from (my) sickness

English Alf,
 
Wouldn't the verb be "convalescebo"?
 
First person singular, future tense, active voice, indicative mood of the second conjugation verb "convalescere" = "to get well", "to recover [from an illness or disease]"?
 
I may be wrong - it's been a very long time ....

Oh dear,
I think I may have accidentally used a subjunctive and made it:
 
"I should recover from my illness"
 
I'd better stick to crosswords i think

The great thing about this board is the huge variety of bogus information that is available -- as in this thread

Margins positive, Capsular penetration extensive Gleason 4+3=7
