Latin "Ad-venture"

If they told you that you spoke ad libitum, ad infinitum, and ad nauseam, how would you react? Would it be ad hominem? You have probably heard most of these short, Latin phrases and may have used them, too. Some are reasonably easy; some may challenge you. Well done if you can shout, "Ad victoriam!" after submitting your answers.
