Happy 150th Dr. Zamenhof

One hundred and fifty years ago, a great man, Dr. L. L. Zamenhof was born. A visionary man, he saw a future world where everyone could communicate with each other easily. As a result, Esperanto was developed. Geeks everywhere rejoiced, for now there was another language to practice in between kissing photographs of a young Eleanore Roosevelt and spitting whilst gutturally uttering Klingon.

And what's more?! Of COURSE! William Shatner was called upon to star in the world's first and only Esperanto film! Change thine pants, you Trekkie masses!

And a scene...

You are welcome, world... you are welcome...

  1. As an Esperanto speaker I found this terrifying! His Esperanto pronunciation that is, not the film.
