a linguistic aside
Just a couple of minor points, and then I really am going to bed:
-- Why is it that when I take my desk apart, I dismantle it,
but I do not mantle it by putting it back together again?
-- The phrase "misty-eyed" takes on a whole new meaning when one knows that "Mist" means "dung" in German. ;oD
