    Yay, i finally legend provocation after many years of training.

    But, I could hardly believe my eyes when i choose that as paperdoll profession.

    Legendary rouser

    in norwegian a ruser is the same as a junkie.

    So, in other words - im a legendary junkie???

    Wish they could find another word of that, cuz i would love to have that on my paperdoll...but not assosiate me with a junkie.

    Ah ha! The true nature of the bard revealed! :)

    Well, I'm not a fan of that one and several others myself, but the odds of them changing I guess are slim.

    Wouldn't Provocateur (sp) be a better title? I mean.... provocation is a little more extreme than rousing..... rousing would be like.... waking someone up....

    I'm not sure I understand the problem. There are miriade words out there that have a totally different meaning if you take one of the letters out.
    rouser - ruser
    reaper -?
    shift _ ?
    Mountain out of a molehill?

    When he typed ruser, it was a typo, he left out the "o". He was meaning that the word "rouser" means junkie in the Norwegian langauge and so the title in Norwegian means "legendary junkie"

    So the Norwegian language misuses an English word and meaning, and its wrong?

    hmm...

    *shrug*

    btw, rouse and ruse are very very different.

    This reminds me of sad true story about finnish company which started selling cookies at US markets, using same cookie name as they used in Finland. For some reason **** Cookies didn't do too well in US. In finnish it indicates that the cookies are crispy.

    I suggested that one some time back but it got criticised for being "too french". Guess we tell all the chefs they're just lowly cooks now. So long as they only cook "freedom fries".
