I'm straight and ambidextrous(*), but goatee'd and 1/8 Ukrainian 1/8 Polish-Pomeranian -- which certainly counts if Russian counts. Religionwise I'm a Buddhist, and there are a lot of magical syllables and seemingly nonsense mantras in Tibetan Buddhism. BTW if I'm not mistaken Balaibalan predates Hildegard, so the first conlangers on historical record were Muslims! (*) I was very probably born left-handed, but I was also lame, and they trained my right hand more as a matter of course. -- /BP 8^)> -- Benct Philip Jonsson -- melroch at melroch dot se "Maybe" is a strange word.
