Reminds me of the Simpsons where they travel to Japan, and go on a game show called something like "Super Lucky Happy Wish Show". But while we're on the topic, a friend of mine who's a fan of Sailor Moon told me that in the Japanese they throw in English randomly, like Sailor Moon is actually _seraa muun_, or something like that! And apparently all the attacks are in English as well. While I'm sure the kids who watch it have no trouble, you've gotta wonder what their parents think. :-) A good article about this phenomenon is at -- "If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God!" - Ralph Waldo Emerson ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
