in reply to MARCH is...

März in German, which reminds me of this lovely beer they have in Bavaria called Märzen, I believe because it was first brewed in March. Even people who don't like beer tend to like Paulaner Märzen because it is oh-soooo malty. But then again, de gustibus non disputandum est.

    As a case of minor nitpicking, shouldn't that be "disputandam"? I may be wrong, though, since it's been a while since I last used any latin (outside of quidquid latine dictum sit profundum viditur, anyway ;)).

    Outside of that, it never ceases to amaze me that there are people who like beer, malty in taste or not. :) But as you said...


      No, it should definitely be 'disputandum' - something like a neuter nominative singular (present) gerundive, if that dusty brain cell in the corner isn't taking the mickey.


        Point taken. *s* And Google also supports this opinion; a search for "de gustibus non est" shows a clear preference for "disputandum".

        Now I feel old. :)
