Friday 5 for February 21: In Friday Veritas

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

We did a variation on this theme several years ago but I’m feeling it again. I’ll try not to repeat questions from the first time.

  1. The motto of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus, which means, “Never tickle a sleeping dragon.” Using Google Translate to turn English to Latin, what would be the name and motto of a school you founded?
  2. What is the motto of a school you attended, and how do you feel about its representing you (or about your representing it)?
  3. From this list of university and college mottos, which will be yours for the coming weekend?
  4. Based strictly on its motto, which country should you be a citizen of?
  5. Based strictly on its motto, which U.S. state, federal district, or territory should you probably stay away from?

Thanks for participating, have a great weekend, and Floreat Regina!
