    But WHY is Bluetooth named after Harold?

    That’s probably why they call them “junks”.

    The runes did not translate to here, unfortunately


    They can be seen here at the bottom of the article.

    Bluetooth communication protocol[edit]

    Bluetooth logo with runes H and B, referring to Harald Bluetooth
    “Bluetooth” now commonly refers to the Bluetooth wireless specification design started by Ericsson, Nokia, Intel, Toshiba and IBM, to enable cable-free connections between computers, mobile phones, PDAs, printers, etc. The Bluetooth communications protocol in these devices is named after this king, ostensibly due to his abilities to make diverse factions communicate with each other.

    The Bluetooth logo consists of the Nordic runes for his initials, H (Runic letter ior.svg) and B (Runic letter berkanan.svg) (Long-branch runes version).16

    Here’s the logo:




    (the logo in the article was a separate image. I chose this off of an image search, which provided a separate URL to make it “postable”.
    Image posting directions can be found on an old Citizen Dog strip: x_Tech’s Formatting Guide

    Can an octopus go through the eye of a needle easier than a camel can?

    I hope the octopus doesn’t hurt his tentacles …‘eye, eye, eye’!

    ….because they’d both profit from the Halliburton
    … to satisfy his ego

    Now, now now. You are not allowed to attribute two despicable motives to Bush-boy. People are convinced that ‘shrub’ was a simpleton. BTW, how many Democrats voted ‘FOR’ Invasion?

    More likely a USO or Unidentified Swimming Object never to be seen again.

    Nice going Dick. Does “lost at sea” mean that your attempt simply stopped due to unsolvable problems, or that your “look at me” disease finally cause you to buy the farm?

    BTW, the word “junk” for a Chinese vessel comes from a Portuguese word, and has nothing to do with our English word for trash. Look it up.
