Via TrekToday: Finnish Politician Campaigns In Klingon

A Finnish Green Party candidate has made his web site available for readers of Klingon, despite translation difficulties because he was unable to find a Klingon word for “green.”

MP Jyrki Kasvi, who describes himself as a passionate Star Trek fan, told Reuters that a Klingon version of his web site is part of his re-election campaign (via Yahoo). “Some have thought it is blasphemy to mix politics and Klingon,” he said, but “Others say it is good if politicians can laugh at themselves.”

The 43-year-old Kasvi represents the Greens from the constituency Uusimaa. A research scientist with a Ph.D. in engineering from the Helsinki University of Technology, Kasvi was elected to the Finnish Parliament in 2003.

What more could you ask for?

For those dying to practice their Klingon, the site is here.

Classic:


I suppose that this belongs on PoliSciFi or Deportes, but it just seemed to deserve being on the main page (plus the whole Hardaway thing made the political Blogosphere because of a Michael Medved column and various responses).

Yes, light blogging from me today (and this week in general, I guess). It is the end of the semester, and hence there are multiple pulls on my time. Although today it has been about struggling through a chapter of my book on Colombia.

At any rate, a brief break to the internets led me here: Understanding Battlestar Galactica.

Devotees of the show might find it interesting.

If you haven’t been watching NBC’s Heroes and you are even vaguely an SF/comics fan, then you are missing something.

If you want to get at least semi-caught up, SciFi Channel is going to show the first six episodes tomorrow. Between that and the re-runs after next week’s “mid-season finale” you should be all caught in time for the January resumption of this very compelling, well-written and well-acted tale.
