Google says ridiculum (ridiculous) or ineptias (nonsense).
Should be nubes larum terramSo, if I used Nubes Larum, would I be making a reference to a Cloud Cuckoo (pronoun)?
Given the recent soccer (football) score, y'all might not want to use Latin in hopes of greater perseverance next time. *wink*
Possibly Red Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson.I recall a novel I read some years ago in which an elevator was built of carbon fiber, three cables braided together. Then saboteurs bombed about 30000 or so miles up, the lower portion fell down, wrapping the Earth about 1 1/3 times killing millions of people all along the equator and untold property damage, not to mention the ecosystem. Don’t remember where the upper section went.
Was in the first one.Red Mars is the first of a trilogy (which I have, but have not read). Does this elevator occur in the first (Red)? If so, I will move it up my 'read list'.
Many thanks for kindly supplying that info. I have the book and hope to get to it within the next couple of months. I have too many books to read and know it is one of trilogy (Green and Blue) so read no. 1, read nos. 2 and 3!
