Heyyy Planeswalker! Glad to hear you're doing well! Where in Germany do you live now, roughly?
Still up north, in Flensburg, right at the border to Denmark.

Do they call it Flensburg because they did a lot of flensing there?
"I'm guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk," Charles Wick said. "It was very complicated."

I had to look that up.
And no, no excessive and/or widespread flensing happening here.
There's a fun, old tale of an danish knight named Fleno though, who founded this town. Legend has it he had so much flensost (ost pronounced "uust", swedish for cheese, flens-ost being dickcheese) that he could build an entire "borg" (castle) from it. The Danes are kinky like that.

They recently unearthed some old sea fortifications, meaning that there must have been a viking settlement here even before Haithabu (a place further south that got the label of oldest and most important viking settlement around this area). Makes me even happier to sail and row a traditional longboat. ^^

"Do fish drink...... water?"

just wanted to shoot you a thanks for turning me on to this koan. It's a great way of illustrating how language cramps thought.



I was at a party last night, and people were passing around Trivial Pursuit cards, asking each other questions.

I squinted at a card and asked my cabalmate this question. "Do fish drink water?"

His eyes glassed over. The dude was almost on Jeopardy, he's a trivia maniac, and I could SEE the gears in his brain grinding as he tried to figure out the accurate answer to this question. Do fish drink water? He mouthed it silently a few times, then just smiled, shaking his head.

Gadzooks is a great one.

I just found out it was considered significant blasphemy because it derived from God's hooks, or the nails that put Jesus on the cross.
