"Ни фига себе" - how to say in English? (как перевести на английский?) This is one of those little sayings that are only attributable to native speakers, and are rarely properly translated. So, for all English lovers who know Russian - what will be your version of translation of the russian saying "ни фига себе!"? =))

You can find only some equivalents in English. There's no direct translation. For example, someone would say: " Holy shit ! " Or more polite- " Holy cow ! ".
