Star Trek and Shakespeare Sep 24, 2010

Well, we were told in Star Trek V ("The Undiscovered Country") that Shakespeare loses its true meaning when not performed in the original Klingon. Although I can only mutter a few lines in Klingon, such as "fire the photon torpedoes now!" (DaH cha') (sure to come in handy during my day-to-day work), I do believe that Klingon is in more widespread use than most other artificial languages (including Esperanto). In fact, I believe that the University of Minnesota has conducted training workshops on the language.

Would love to learn Klingon Sep 25, 2010

I once was in a long line at a bookstore, with a Klingon grammar, dictionary, and teach-yourself textbook (with audiocassette) in my arms. I was only two people away from the cash register when I repented and took them all back. Part of me still regrets that!
