    Oh, that hurts! (Mind if I forward it on?)

    Not at all…forward away.

    Okay, thanks!

    By the way, I still don’t get the “L” entry. I even went so far as to look up the symbol for torque, but no, that’s a tau…

    The ‘L’ entry is weak. It plays the the homophony of ‘torque’ and ‘talk’ in some dialects of English (not mine, though).

    Ahh! I see. Gotcha.

    By the way, when I forwarded this on, a friend of mine responded with: http://www.btinternet.com/~knutty.knights/alphabet.txt

    It’s in a similar vein, but it’d be nicer if it was complete.

    I got the L (and like it a lot), but don’t get the V.
