No English dictionary has been unable to adequately explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. However, in a recent conference linguistics, held in London and attended by some of the best linguists in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, from Guyana, was the clear winner.

Final challenge was this:
"Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED.
Explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that
is easy to understand. "


Here is the smart answer:
"When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE.
But when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED.
And when the right woman catch you the wrong woman, you
COMPLETELY FINISHED! ».



His reply was received with an ovation that lasted more than 5 minutes.

In a game where the average player speaks Klingon (or some other arbitrary language spoken by less than 50Mio people in the world) in chat you tell us about the difference between complete and finished?

Honestly an Enlish-Klingon dictionary would help me more...
Or a dictonaire that allows me to understand those "exclusive" languages.
