No, that's a pretty factual statement. :) Both Patrick Ryan (the fruitcake mentioned above) and Edo Nyland are top contenders for fruitcakiness. For those unfamiliar with Edo Nyland, he claims that Benedictine monks invented English, German, Latin, Greek, Russian, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Hungarian, Japanese, and many others from...drumroll, please...Basque! I always knew those monks (especially the Irish ones) were bright cookies, but this really takes the, fruitcake. :) I'm not quite sure which mental disease I wish to attribute to that theory, but you can view it in all its resplendently delusional glory at Ya gotta love it; it even manages to fit in the whole "Goddess culture overthrown by an evil patriarchal religion," just for kicks and giggles. :Peter
