This stupid game is the perfect illustration of those posts that talk about us being the Weird Aliens because of how easily we attach to things. Because it gives us a weird little pixelated horse thing that can only walk in a straight line from one side to another and which will die in minutes if its shit is not cleaned up, but nonetheless, how many of us are playing?

Like, here’s Goatoz, Son of Kug. He’s 101 days old and I’m honestly feeling a little heartstring tug about the fact that he’s going to die the next time I need to leave my computer.

Imagine explaining this to aliens, you guys.

The King and the God

In Indo-European Studies, there’s a very famous super-short story written by linguists in Proto-Indo-European in order to illustrate the language, called “The King and the God”. The English text is:

Once there was a king. He was childless.

The king wanted a son. He asked his priest: “May a son be born to me!”

The priest said to the king: “Pray to the god Werunos.”

The king approached the god Werunos to pray now to the god. “Hear me, father Werunos!”

The god Werunos came down from heaven. “What do you want?”

“I want a son.”

“Let this be so,” said the bright god Werunos. The king’s lady bore a son.

As a practice, I translated it into Sumerian (a non-Indo-European language). Here’s my text below, and some commentary below the cut.

Uria lugalmunutukum.

Lugal dumu nash. “Dumungu hetud!” ennir endug.

En “Dingir Uerunus henniren” lugalra endug.

Lugal Uerunusra ineesh shitash te. “Uerunus adda, ngeshtug hemasummun!”

Uerunus anta ngen. “Ana ibashen?”

“Dumu nashen.”

Kug Uerunus “Heam” endug. Ninlugala dumu entud.

Alam mo, minsan kasi kahit anong gawin mong effort, di mangyayari yung gusto mong mangyari eh. Minsan kasi nilalamon tayo ng ideals natin na kahit realistic naman, may mga tao o bagay na pipigil sa desisyon o ginagawa natin. Yun siguro yung isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit minsan fail yung mga plano natin, mga desisyon natin, mga relationship natin sa ibang tao. Shit happens. But it happens for a reason. Wala lang.

“The Chinese word “Kung Fu” translates more or less as “A person hard at work over a long time”. If you want to unlock the full power of Kung Fu, it is not going to be easy: you are going to have to work, you are going to have to sacrifice and you are going to have to suffer - over a long time.”
