What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

    My translation. I don't know how to do the Spoiler alert stuff.

    Sheldon: Why has God forsaken me a biggity its existence I doubt. (*)
    Officer: Here, breathe into this bag.
    Leonard: What's going on?
    Sheldon: They stole everything, Leonard, everything.
    Officer: Are you the roommate?
    Leonard: Yes, Leonard Hofstadter. What happened?
    Officer: Your friend called 911 to report a robbery.
    Leonard: OMG! What did they get?
    Sheldon: What didn't they get! ... Enchanted Weapons, Vicious Gladiator Armour, my Wand of Untainted Power, and all my gold.
    Leonard: You called the Police because someone hacked your World of Warcraft account?
    Sheldon: What choice did I have? The mighty Sheldor, level 85 Blood Elf, hero of the Eastern Kingdoms, has been picked clean like a carcass in the dessert Sun. Plus, the FBI hung up on me.
    Officer: Into the bag...
    Sheldon: They took my battle ostrich.
    Leonard: Ohh no! not Glen!
    Sheldon: Yes, Glen. The only bird I ever loved.
    Officer: Good luck fellows.
    Leonard: Thank you Officer.
    Sheldon: What a minute! You are not going to do anything?
    Officer: Mr. Cooper there is nothing...
    Sheldon: Doctor Cooper.
    Officer: Seriously?
    Leonard: Not the kind with access to drugs.
    Officer: Fine. Doctor Cooper. I'm sorry for your loss, but the Pasadena Police Department doesn't have jurisdiction in... Pandora.
    Sheldon: That's from Avatar! World of Warcraft takes place on Azeroth. Goodness gracious, how are you allowed to carry a gun? Can at least you refer me to a rogue ex-cop?
    Officer: What?
    Sheldon: You know. One what was drove off the force because he refuses play by the rules and now it hires himself out to impose his own brand of rough justice?
    Officer: No.
    Leonard: Thank you Officer

    (*) Lynne, this line is certainly wrong.

    @Roman what is it all about? I couldn't get the format yet. :open_mouth:
  • RomanRoman Posts: 493 ✭✭✭
    @bubbli . My previous post is a mistake. I posted the translation of the second challenge here, and here is the thread of the first one. The link for the second challenge is: http://www.learn-english-forum.org/discussion/2765/challenge-transcript-a-short-video-2

    The idea is simple: Just listen the video and transcript the conversation.

    @Roman OK. But date is over now.
  • RomanRoman Posts: 493 ✭✭✭
    Not yet. I will close in the challenge tonight (at 10pm in my country), at 2am Berlin time
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Roman you are giving me tough time. Keep it open at least for a week. :)

    Sorry @bubbli, I hate to change deadlines. It is not fair for (the few) people that posted their transcripts in time. You can post them later at any time but out of competition :)
  • BubblyBubbly Posts: 29,890 ✭✭✭✭
    @Roman I will try besides having some issues with my laptop. :) Learning and fun has no deadline. There are many like me who recently knew or join this thread. :)
