Re: Whale Linguistics

Short version: dolphins appear to introduce themselves by saying their own name when they meet other dolphins. It could be a possible way to say 'Hello' in a human culture, too. 'Hi, I'm Omzinesý!', though I had met the person zillion times and they well knew who I am. Oooh, what if after this deve...

Re: Quick Diachronics Challenge

Yinrih long ago abandoned the idea of cybernetics in favor of wearable tech. There are just too many risks associated with body modification to justify it except where a severe disability is being corrected, and even then it's considered a last resort.

I love the fact that that one lyric characterizes the entire song for some people. I love that one, but my sister (also an AJR fan) doesn't.
