    @Axioplase: Could you add the translation? I understand the first two, but the third one is not clear to non-experts like me. :D – Alenanno Sep 7 '11 at 15:29

    @Alenanno: It says "Well, I'm so clever, it was obvious I would succeed". Because the OP didn't realise that one can be told "omedetou" for so many reasons, to which there are as many answers. – Axioplase Sep 7 '11 at 16:09
