Often I've tried to explain the Chinese language to folks. They get lost on the concept of the four tones and the fact that the same sound can literally be four different words in Chinese depending on what tone is used. I usually give the example "ting" which said in one tone means "stop" and in another tone means "to listen", but perhaps I should have been using "shi". Nonetheless, this video, provided by my wonderful brother, demonstrates this four tones concept perfectly, so I thought I'd throw it up here so I can direct people here if they are ever confused again. It really should clear things up for them.
Also, check out this article on Alan Moore, author of V For Vendetta. It's interesting, to say the least...
Update: Another interview with Alan Moore in which he discusses his "fairy-tale porn" Lost Girls... this man is fascinating! In a really creepy, crazy way, that is.
