Offtopic Observations

After a bit of travel to Europe, am back.

Welsh signboards make me giggle like a retard. It looks like whatever letters crop ups when a cat sits on your English keyboard.

And it is indeed news to me, that whole swathes of people in the East (Chinese especially) sign off their IM or Yahoo chat with 88. Yep, the number 88.

That is all.

In Mandarin, the number 8 is pronounced "ba". Hence "88" => "ba ba".
