The Meaning behind Jimmy's tattoo.

Recommended Posts

darkdayz

 

Edifica adversario tuo aureum pons ad receptum trans

 

Translates from Latin to:

 

Build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across

 

Anybody know the source of this quote?

Golden Bridge?

 

The tattoo is the scripture on his right arm.

Just some deep sounding saying he liked so he got it inked.

I have no idea if I read it right but if it's Latin then this is what Google translate gave me:

 

edificio adversarie tuo aureum pos ad receptum trans

 

your opponent to retreat across the golden buildings can

 

Yeah moto_whistle.gif

 

Edit: oops, it was already translated.

 

"leave a way of escape." Tu Mu, commenting on Sun Tzu, advises, "Show him there is a road to safety...".

 

So make of that what you will.

One of his tattoos says entitled, another one mentions a golden bridge; sounds like some spoiled rich kid sh*t.

 

I'm sure Jimmy would rather his opponents retreat, so he doesn't have to fight them, cuz he's a little puss.

 

Or maybe Jimmy is really deep and wise underneath all his spoiled douchebag rich kid exterior. monocle.gif

His tattoos dont really have meanings, he just wants to be gangsta

Plus have you noticed, he looks a bit more intimidating ( like a bully ) in this pic, whereas in the game he looks like a geek gamer

It means if you corner an opponent he will fight for his life and may kill you. If you give him a chance of escape he will flee and you have won.

 

e.g. In boxing it can be very dangerous to get an opponent in the corner, they will flail their arms about to get out of the situation instead of just backing off.

 

give him the golden ticket to f*ck off smile.gif
