Can't let that slide, Twerppoet. If you're having "e pluribus unum", I'll have to counter with "ad mari usque ad mare".
Here is Wikipedia List, in case you want to look any of them up. I recommend using the local find/search. As I said, it is a very long list.

From the list. You've got to love this.
ad astra per alas porci -- to the stars on the wings of a pig
A favorite saying of John Steinbeck. A professor told him that he would be an author when pigs flew. Every book he wrote is printed with this insignia.
I think that Latin is very useful.
It helped me with some of the French words, when I learned it at school. When I see Italian words, I can manage to understand a few of them, even a little Spanish. When my son mentions chemical expressions, I'm able to derive them from the Latin I still remember. My children never learned Latin. Yet my son often mentions it would have been easier for him if he'd had the chance to do so.

twerppoet, I just looked at your list. "Romanes eunt domus" is on it!!! With an appropriate explanation, of course. No sign of "illigitimi non carborundum" though...
Bottom line: knowing some Latin is quite useful, as well as fun. Speaking Latin, however, is possibly the nerdiest thing you could do.
