i can't sing on key

do you know what my favorite sound ever is?

sung syllable-final voiceless velar stops.

if i had time, i'd give you a run through of highly prominent examples but i don't really have time.

look what kai and i found:

no, it's NOT a map of africa and europe. but close.

now you wish you hadn't been scared of the lightning and the wind.
now you wish you were an intrepid explorer like us.

picnics ARE for fun!
(maybe, just maybe, it IS a map of africa and europe and it's carefully pruned so that at midnight on the full moon the light shines through the leaves and points out the spot for the buried treasure.
we better go check. just to be sure.
when exactly is the full moon?
