    Mr. Whizzed fist beat Chute to his job. Very deserving of a monkey DNA removal session don't you think?

    He was all worn out from all of the pressure and build up for the big page 500 turn. Probably taking a nap right now.

    Bowing down would require authorization by a sober quorum of the credentialed 10-Ring membership. Going to be tough to assemble one. Sorry.

    Years ago, when first negotiating with the Borg, I found that they bowed down nicely...after double taps to their knees.

    Their queen and I get along famously now.

    Hmmmm ... an interesting negotiation strategy! But then, I recall a classic Al Capone line: "A kind word and a gun accomplish so much more than a kind word alone."

    So is this SammuraiRabbi a Jewish religious leader residing in Japan with the Shogun...or...

    is he one of the Shogun's warriors who decided that to trade those in international power for superior metals in which to make the katana, he would become ordained in Judaism as a preferred position in which to help protect the ancient sect?

    始めてください。

    An under-appreciated movie. Next to the first Diehard, it was Bruce Willis's best performance.

    My professional lineage is not from Japan. We trace ourselves back to the sacking of Rome by the Germanic tribes. Attila the Hun is well known in history; less known is his second cousin Aguilla the Accountant, who kept the books on the sacking loot. A major opportunity was missed when Aguilla's advice on proper looting standards was ignored; if his judgement had been followed, 1) Rome would have continued to dominate the Western World for two more millenia, and 2) the Huns would have had cash flow out the wazoo for the same period! The Dungeon Financial Types really hate it when an opportunity this immense is blown.

    By the way: if those oriental characters are actually some sort of heinous insult, YOUR cash flow is toast.

    Wonderful.

    The oriental characters are Japanese, and it is translated to English to mean: "Please begin".

    :wavey:

    Hmmmm ... So eight ideograms end up translated to two English words. Either there is MAJOR cultural/linguistic transformation contained within the translation, or there is a major-league shell-game going on by the translator. Congratulations to you for creating so worthy an intellectual stalking horse! The Dungeon scholarly entities are intrigued; we will begin our investigation of this worthy question after we wrap up the nightly embezzlement count.

    Kanji vs katakana vs hiragana; phonetic alphabet vs. traditional vs. a hybrid

    Ever seen a Japanese typewriter? They are huge and still depend on backspacing and combining characters.

    Ever wonder what American people's cute little Asian tattoos really say? You don't want to know, but my understanding is that the tattoo artists are rarely kind.

    One of the more enjoyable aspects of showing foreign tourists around America is taking them to a large shopping mall on a Saturday afternoon when the teens are in full swarm. You can have a ball explaining the exact degree of profanity on each passing t-shirt!

    The idea of going to a large shopping mall crowded with teenagers is so far from my idea of fun, that we are talking about polar opposites here.
