Ottoman Turk translation help?

How would one write "The Fast Ones" in Ottoman-era Turkish? I'm making a mildly humorous sign for a Turkish friend, and for various reasons I'm pretending it's Ottoman-era (1650). [more inside]

What is French coffee.

I am currently in Kuwait drinking something they call 'French coffee'. I like it a lot but I cannot figure out what it is and the internet isn't helping (nor is the waitress). Its texture is mealy (unfintered), it's strong, there's a lot of sediment, no milk (none offered either), there seems to be a hint of sugar in it (was offered the option of extra when ordering) and it's served in a cup that is somewhat bigger than an espresso one but much smaller than an American coffee cup. It's definitely not Turkish coffee. What is this stuff and how do I make it at home?

How are you? I'll be fine when I can remember what language to reply in.

What language is this? The two things I remember sounded like "nazoor sun" and "sollaar sun" for how are you and fine thanks, or similar. The guy who taught me speaks several languages including Farsi, Arabic, Azerji and Turkish, but googling hasn't worked for me. What was he teaching me? I'd like to learn some phrases in that language to surprise him with next time I see him.

Turkish delight on a moonlit night ... or mid-afternoon, perhaps.

I recorded this from the Voice of Turkey via shortwave on 11955 kHz last Friday. Unfortunately, I didn't make note of the world time, and my meager online language resources don't seem to help me figure it out. What time is she announcing after the pips?

[Candy-making Filter] Help me improve my Turkish Delight?

I have made Turkish Delight about ten times, and not once have I been satisfied with the results. Either the candy ends up limp and flaccid, or it's full of crunchy little sugar crystals. No matter how much I stir, no matter how precise I am with the heat ... I always end up with a sugary mess. Your thoughts?

Can anyone translate Turkish rap?

Can anyone who speaks Turkish translate this? [more inside]
