    Hey all

    I have an image where there's some text in Italian and I'd very much like to know what it says. Here's the part of the image that contains the text... anyone like to let me know what it translates to please...? ta

    Babel Fish gives this

    "The life and a wheel that can change to our destiny you I pray you help me"

    Cheers Will, hadn't thought of that, though very often the online translations don't quite make true sense.

    Thanks Gary, that's a great start, cheers.

    The reason I wanted to find out is that I took another photograph of this chap when in Milan earlier this week, and he looked so sad. He was an exquisite saxophonist, and played absolutely beautifully. I gestured to him if it would be OK for me to take a photo, and whilst playing he placed his right thumb up, and raised a very sad smile for me...

    I am not ashamed to say that after taking a few pics, and listening to him for 15 mins (and giving some money too), when I moved on my way, I had a lump in my throat. Hence the reason for wanting to ascertain what was on the card.

    Here's the best pic of the ones I took...

    Try adding some punctuation and common sense: :p

    That's funny.... my Acme Anglo-Italian phrasebook says it means:

    "My Hovercraft Is Full Of Eels"....

    He is saying "Life is a wheel that can change our destiny. Please help me."
    Poor man, I wonder what happened to him :(

    I think the literal translation has to be apapted a little ...

    Wheel Of Life = life cycle?

    add 'destiny' = future of our life cycle

    add 'change' = the future of our life cycle can be changed

    = = life is a bitch, so give me some dosh so I can stop playing the blues!
