It was hard to make out over the music :) I'll just assume it was gibberish :p

Probably was. Super Furry Animals also had quite a bit of Welsh singing. My favorite band of all time, Manic Street Preachers, were from Wales but they did no native language singing that I know of. Apropos of nothing here. :D

That makes sense, because fahren means "to drive" in German, and the Danish and German languages are related to each other :)

:D I knew fahren was a German word, but I had to look up exactly what it meant :)

Geek this: on the linguistic family tree, English is officially listed as a West Germanic language. All that Angles and Saxons influence.

I love studying etymologies of words :D I should read up more on the Saxons and their history :) I know that the UK has a number of languages that are either dead or just less common than English: Cornish, Manx, etc :)

There are also the common ones like Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, etc.

Apparently there's some truth to the Aryan myth. Groups of horsemen galloping out of the Russian steppes, spreading their languages as well as other things...

India and Europe are so far apart, it's amazing to think about how language can spread across such a vast area! And there are still some languages in existence today in that area (such as Basque) that have no linguistic connections at all to any Indo-European languages.

:D All those languages that got pushed into the nether lands when first the Celts and then the Saxons decided to take all the prime property.

If you know 'Proto-Indo-European', then you've likely heard of the similarities between Sanskrit and non-romance European languages?

I think I've heard of similarities between Sanskrit and early Germanic languages :)

I think Welsh is a language with little Indo-European influence. I just figure millennia of barbarians pouring in from the east should more than make up for such vast distances.

I wonder if Welsh is linguistically related to Gaelic.

When you say it should "more than make up for such vast distances", what do you mean? :)

I figure that influences from the steppes of central Asia - both influences to European languages and Indian languages - took a long time to migrate from there to here, but that there was plenty of time to do so and the invaders from the east could be pretty insistent on forcing their ways on those they conquered.

Ahh, I see what you mean :) I wonder if maybe I had initially misread what you wrote as "more than make up for such vast differences" :p

The Wikipedia article mentioned that lager! :D

'Hell' is a style of beer, and it's not even brewed in F#cking but in another town; the name was acquired to make a great selling point. ;D

I did a few chores then sat on my butt and watched some baseball. I decided it was going to be a lazy afternoon for me.

Yup, the article mentioned that, too :D

At least you got to relax :D

Yeah. I rarely go anywhere connected to a holiday during the holiday. Tussling with others is not relaxing.
