I was in Japanese yesterday and we were discussing 旅行(travel). Soon after, she started talking about the Shinkansen trains and their names.

The slowest one is called こだま (ko-da-ma), which means 'echo'. The next fastest one is called ひかり(hi-ka-ri), which means 'light'.

Seeing as how this wasn't the fastest train, my interest piqued. What, pray tell, could be faster than light?

のぞみ (no-zo-mi), which means 'Hope'.

Indeed.

Not in a million years would I guess that one, which seems to be a concept I both lack and avoid.

I got this funny email:
