  1. I am french and it’s the first time I have come across the concept of l’esprit de l’escalier, I don’t know where you find your stuff but it must be in a dark and secret place.

  2. A similar equivilant to no7 in Ireland is „Butter face“, as in: „everything about her is good BUT-HER-FACE“ XD

    Its not the same but close.

  3. The Swedish word „lagom“. I don’t think that it’s translated into English, but its something that is not, for instance, too long, or not too long either, but not perfect.

  4. *Shut your mouth. You’re an idiot.*
    Learn English before you question ones intelligence. Besides I didn’t say anything bad. Think before you say something.

  5. fake there’s no word in Malay say’s : Pisan zapra ? duhhh tht word just never existed . – Voice of a guy who speaks malay – better known as bahasa malaysia .

  6. What? No Chinese? There are soooo many words in Chinese that don’t translate well into English (or most other languages for that matter). Though, a lot of them are idioms like „恭喜發財“ („gōngxǐfācái“ – a new year’s greeting wishing good fortune) or philosophical concepts like „陰陽“/“阴阳“ (which the Chinese word is used „yin yang“) which has a lot of meanings so is difficult to explain.

  8. There are so many Greek words that don’t translate into English and there is not even one here. Like filotimo, it translates to google translate „pride“ but it’s not what it means.

  9. a lot of people here refer to Schadenfreude nr9 as sadism….its a different thing, watching fails on youtube or laughing at your friend, who crashed on the bicycle, doesnt make you sadist but personally inflict harm to someone else for your own pleasure is sadistic…btw. my (czech) language has an equivalent word for Schadenfreude – škodolibost 😉

  10. People like you tick me off.

    If you read the rules on Youtube, you can see that anything nipple related wont ever make it onto Youtube. So stop your searches if its on Youtube.

  11. hahahahahahahahahahaahahahahhahahahahahahah i cant stop laughing at this comment, its priceless. You actually read the youtube rules? and there is a fuckton of pornographic material on youtube…
