Zortzi is the Basque word for eight. Basque is an odd language, in some ways, as it is apparently not closely linguistically related to the other languages found in Europe. That probably means the Basques are from outer space, or possibly some kind of alternate timeline/parallel dimension or whatnot. The same goes for Romanian and Finno-Ugric, if memory serves.
Anyway, welcome to the latest Open Thread. Please don't talk about politics, religion, or Sean O's reproductive and/or recreational anatomy. To do so would be bad.
