    One moves to Kling. :wink:
    Cool word! Did ya know kling means dog in Aboriginal languages spoken in Alaska. Given that, coupled with the fact that the Klingon language was derived from bits here and pieces there of several human languages, the word klingon could mean, take the sled dog out for a run. :D

    Placating the whims, placating the whims.

    One of my favo(u)rite things about living in Japan is this. I get asked the exact same question over and over again, and it's not the question that's interesting; it's the exact order of the nouns,

    Where are you from? America? Britian? Australia? New Zealand? (lengthy pause; say anything now) China?

    Why did you come to Japan?
    How long have you been in Japan?
    Do you like Japanese food?
    Which is better; Japan or Canada?


    Any of these ring a bell with you, Cas? ;)

    Yup, and in addition,

    Can you use chopsticks?
    What's your favorite color?

    :D
