- What's marfă and naşpă? :P 2000ncă nu ştiu nimic... You're probably the one who taught me what mişto means.

I just read that "eggs" in Romanian is the equivalent to "balls" in English. :P Deci... un ou sau două... oua. :P

2000mi pare rău, this is probably not good slang to discuss!

Gotta go now...

- 1. "marfă" is something very good. It means normally "merchandise", things that one sells, and it's probably an abridged form from "marfă de bună calitate", i.e "good quality merchandise", in other words "good stuff".

2. "naşpa" and it's equivalent (also slang) "nasol" means something bad (a thing, a situation). I think it comes from some gypsy words but I am not sure.

What about... - "Beton" or "bestial"? For those of you who don't know, they are the equivalent of "marfă". With the only difference that "bestial" is a stronger remark than the previous 2. It would be like the difference between...let's say "cool" and "tremendous" (more or less).

Bestial - Very few know that "bestial" (awesome) is different from "bestial" (related to beasts). The first one doesn't come from "bestie" (beast), but from the English "best", so "best-ial". It sounds funny because of the ressemblance to the other "bestial".

- Băi, să-mi moară nevasta, dar prea Ómi place chestia asta. E bestială treaba... e supermiştofaină.

Exemplu de slang... :)

- i guess it means smth like:
i'll be damned but i like this thing much
but literally, instead of 'ill be damned' here is
'for my wife to die'
