The audio pauses for too long before saying agus slàinte. I thought it was finished and skipped the "and cheers"

The problem with being faster than the speed of light is that you only find darkness.

In other words I jumped the gun too :>

"Ceud mìle fàilte a charaid... [dramatic pause]... agus slàinte!"

I always jump the gun in this one and miss the last bit.

Gabh mo leisgeul. Is this a common Gàidhlig phrase? And if so, can anyone explain the context in which it would be used? Tapadh leibh!

It is a lovely phrase, I now say "Sali hundert dussig mal Zämme" in Swiss

Maybe "Sali hundertdussig mol Zämme" would be even better (spelling is flexible here)
