Hmm. Let's try the Socratic method: 1. Vlad the Impaler (the inspiration for Dracula) was from what region of Europe? 2. Is Dracula likewise mentioned as being from this region? 3. What modern nation controls this region, and indeed, markets the region as "Dracula's home"? 4. What language is predominantly spoken in said region? (Hint--it's the other one that is NOT Hungarian.) The conclusion is left as an exercise to the reader. :) :Peter -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux) Comment: For info see iD8DBQE8elNnevbW9GDdlVARAr8uAJ47dFO9UyJXlpMLENHAYJ4CEmnDjACggHsp 5JogUsrh4jr3rHhifBDcJfA= =ESQw -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
