I wonder what "Gratuated from Starfleet Academy" will do to your resume though.

Why would the kid be screwed up??

Would the child be damaged by this? No of course not. It's just words, but spoken in a different dialect than you are used to hearing. It would be the same as if he was bought up using a dead or ancient Earth language or one used by a limited number of people. Just because it isn't spoken by the majority of us doesn't mean the child will be damaged by learning Kilngon, it fact it may help the kid learn more complex and difficult languages in the future.

Children are just little learning computors really.

Language doesn't damage a child, it's what is said that can.

I'm become more and more amazed every day at the ability of people to create escapist false realities and still thing they are "powerful" and "elite" and "strong", and probably worse, "intelligent".

What a mess.
What I'm amazed at is how people still to this day can not recognize a joke on the internet. What a mess.


I want to hear about the kid's first fight in school, Yes Mr. Mok'Tagh little Gibbah'ck was playing in the sandbox when little Ronald dumped sand on him, and that's when your son buried a Bat'Leth into Ronald's chest and ate his heart.

Pfffft, considering the constitution of the average wannabe-klingon, you probably could slap them lightly and then watch when they dissolve into tears.

Or just let them run after you for some hundred meters, and watch them wheeze and squeal while they try to reach you.

So, you would deny the child his mothertongue for some pseudo-scientific experiment?

Thats just ********. You just said that klingon is just another language, so learning klingon would not differ from learning english, spanish or whatever.

Yeah, right. Imagine that kid in school. It will be tortured for ever, by everyone.


If it really happened like that, child protective services should check out that crazy person!

Because I'd learn English over time by living here (America), but in the meantime, I'd have this really awesome sounding badass language to speak, and from my favorite television series to boot. It's much easier to learn a language by immersion (English in the US, for example) than by a book (Klingon, for example).
