Yup, a faggot is a bundle of sticks, for starting a fire. That's where the term faggot for gays came from - what used to be considered the proper treatment of homosexuals, execution by fire.

I don't think I ever used the word like that again after I learned it's meaning. It's sickening what people think is moral sometimes.

I heard it comes from the times when witches were burnt at the stake and gays were thrown on the fire to keep the flames burning after the sticks had run out, so 'faggot' = something you throw on a fire.

Hadn't heard that one... bodies don't burn very well though, so gays would be very poor kindling.

It's also why many languages call the bassoon a fagott ('specially german), because it looks like a bundle of sticks.

Were they gay? 8) They probably drew the lines on the map in a hurry so they wouldn't miss the beginning of the Cher concert that night.

Hmm, maybe that also explains terms like "flaming" and "flamer"

Or maybe that's something else.

I didn't know you were a Brit. Seeing as how you're into Ms. Spears (not literally of course), you struck me as one of those rather non-classy American gay men. Although, when I think of British homosexuals, prissy old men like Ian McKellen always come to mind, which is pretty damned classy.

ARKan-SAW or Ar-KANSAS

Many place names in our state, including Arkansas, are French pronunciations of Indian words.

At the time of the early French exploration, a tribe of Indians, the Quapaws, lived West of the Mississippi and north of the Arkansas River. The Quapaws, or OO-GAQ-PA, were also known as the downstream people, or UGAKHOPAG. The Algonkian-speaking Indians of the Ohio Valley called them the Arkansas, or "south wind."

The state's name has been spelled several ways throughout history. In Marquette and Joliet's "Journal of 1673", the Indian name is spelled AKANSEA. In LaSalle's map a few years later, it's spelled ACANSA. A map based on the journey of La Harpe in 1718-1722 refers to the river as the ARKANSAS and to the Indians as LES AKANSAS. In about 1811, Captain Zebulon Pike, a noted explorer, spelled it ARKANSAW.

During the early days of statehood, Arkansas' two U.S. Senators were divided on the spelling and pronunciation. One was always introduced as the senator from "ARkanSAW" and the other as the senator from "Ar-KANSAS." In 1881, the state's General Assembly passed a resolution declaring that the state's name should be spelled "Arkansas" but pronounced "Arkansaw."

The pronunciation preserves the memory of the Indians who were the original inhabitants of our state, while the spelling clearly dictates the nationality of the French adventurers who first explored this area.

Wait a minute, weren't the Harkonnens originally supposed to represent something like Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia or something? I thought the Corrinos represented America.

Harkonnen is a Finnish name, I believe, and Vladimire is Slavic but beyond that I don't see the connection.

I don't think the Harkonnens resemble any current or historical society. I figured the Corrino to be Italian. Especially that Crown prince guy (Raphael?) - his thingy about statecraft always came off rather machiavellian.
