Re: Where we're from/Denmark

OK. So who's the person from Denmark (Hvem er du)? I lived in Denmark at
one time and learned the language pretty well but I now have a difficult
time when talking with Danish friends talking about what I do. I'd like to
know how to say such things as "bookbinding" paa dansk. You can respond
directly to me at <Chris_McAfee@byu.edu>.

that bothers you so much?"
"The Smell."
"Computers don't smell, Rupert."
"I know...)

"...Smell is the most powerful trigger
to the memory there is. A certain
flower or a whiff of smoke can bring
up experiences long forgotten. Books
smell musty and rich. The knowledge
gained from a computer has no texture,
no context. It's there and then it's
gone. If it's to last, then the getting
of knowledge should be tangible. It
should be smelly."
