You correct the professor's pronunciation of Egyptian god's in class.  That resulted in me being given the passage to read.  It was a teaching reading class.

When you realize all the books you've selected to read for you child's home schooling for the year are sci fi.

Yeah. Nerd. Me.

Something along the lines of "good regards".  Often used as a letter closing.  I will admit, I would have to dig out my old Latin texts to get any closer than that.  And my accent always stunk in any foreign language, so I would not have offered any pronunciations.  :>

But, to up my nerd credentials, I do have a copy of a Latin translation of Winnie the Pooh.  Which is amazingly cool.  We got it when a relative of DH's who taught Latin for about a gazillion years passed away.

When you read all the PP's and think, "Wow, what an interesting topic!  I've gotta Google (insert PP topic here)".  ;D

You mention Ras al Ghul and your father stares at you and says 'well... i guess this means I raised you okay"
