I don't know Latin, but I'm pretty sure I've got these two right:
Ascendo tuum - Up yours
Mei capilli sunt flagrantes - My hair is on fire
And I think Vir prudens non contra ventum mingit could be A wise man does not urinate against the wind.

I don't see a yes option. I can interpret these. Corpe is Body (#4 = up yours). Prudens is Judgment or wisdom. (#6 = A wise man does not urinate against the wind). Capelili is likely head or hair (#5 = My hair is on fire). #3 being the only other short one there must be (#3 = Seize the beer). Ante is Before. (#2 = To boldly go where no man has gone before). Obscuri is Obscure, or To not know (#1 = You do not know the power of the dark side). How did I do?

'Up yours' is #3;
'To boldly go...' is #6;
'power of the dark side' is #1;
'Seize the beer!' is #4;
'My hair is on fire' is #5;
'...does not urinate against the wind' is #2.


I hope I got some of them right.

This is not Latin.
For example, A wise man does not urinate against the wind is: Homo sapiens non urinat in ventum. Not: vir prudens no contra ventum mingit.

4 - seize the beer, -----carpe for seize, carveza is spanish for beer which is an offshoot of latin
6 - a wise man does not ....----- prudens must mean smart/wise, as in prudent
5 - my hair is on fire ---- flagrantes must have something to do with fire
3 - up yours ---- cause its a short term

so I guess
1 - dark side
2 - to boldy go where no

Ascendo tuum = Up yours
Vir prudens non contra ventum mingit = A wise man does not urinate against the wind.
Mei capilli sunt flagrantes = My hair is on fire.
Corripe Cervisiam = Seize the beer!

But I'm not sure about the other two - there are fewer words there that I am familiar with.

I think

Postatem obscuri lateris nescitix = You do not know the power of the dark side.
Ad eundum quo nemo ente iit = To boldly go where no Man has gone before.

But I wouldn't be surprised if they were the other way round.

Maybe some of them, but it's too difficult to match the Latin with the English.

Maybe both lists should have been listed numerically then match the numbers.
