I just learned a new alphabet. It's the Elder Futhark runic script, and was used by Germanic tribesmen for several centuries.
It'll come in handy someday.
If anybody wants to get me a present for Christmas or my birthday (doesn't really matter which), I'd like an English translation of the Koran. I came across a copy of one today, and the binding was beautiful. The script was too, but I can't read Arabic, so, I'd like an English version.
It'd just be neat to have, eh? I'm sure it makes good reading, full of pearls of wisdom.
