- How come? And does that mean that "boink" also offends English phonotactics? -Stephen (Steg) "oh living in captivity it's hard to know what's real; you can't take what they give you, but you get what you can steal. and half the world is cold and hard, but all the world's a stage; and this is my performance growing up inside a cage." ~ 'growing up inside a cage' by jason spitz
