I was reading an analysis of The Invisibles and they mentioned a common experience reported by DMT users- a globular alien presence from outside reality tries to teach you a new language.

When I was young, I associated collard greens with colanders. But not the coliseum. I’m assuming it’s because of the word similarity. Or maybe I saw them on TV in a colander?
Oddly enough, I’ve eaten tons of crazy things most people have never heard of and some things many don’t consider food, yet I’ve still never had collard greens. Insane.
Sega-produced robotic cat.
Note the slick marketing: the name “near me” is more precisely “NYA- MI” (ニャーミ). You might translate this to be “meow-me” (the noise a cat makes is “nya nya”).
On a related note, the Pokemon character “Meowth” is “NYASU” in Japan. How about that.

It’s a music video of Soundwave the Decepticon, breakdancing with one of his little cassette buddies.
I wonder how hard it would be to make a Soundwave which actually plays real mini tapes, and would still transform? Or the little cassette guys which would actually play as real tapes on Soundwave or any other mini-tape player?
Maybe we could “cheat” and use flash memory to simulate a moving tape on the head of the player?

Why can’t Ali G just use Cyrillic properly in his Kazahk segments? It’s not that hard. It’s a phonetic alphabet, just like the Latin alphabet.
