For an intelligent man, my dad is pretty thick...I just spent the past 45
minutes, trying, unsuccessfully, to convince him that English "Father",
German "Vater", French "Pere", Latin "Pater" and Sanskrit "Pitar" are all
related...I couldn't get through, it was really aggravating. The only
place where he saw a connection is the Latin/Sanskrit, where he said that
this just confirms his suspicion that the Romans were Gypsies...

Is it really that hard to grasp that sounds can change, than [p] can
become [f]?

Anyone else ever have an experience like this?
