The Fremdsprache Ambush

Graham Harman has an excellent post on a form of one-upsmanship that might be one for his Gallery of Grassholes or whatever it's called... It's apropos (in a humoresque way) the ongoing conversation about languages on various blogs today. He calls it The Fremdsprache Ambush, which is a fabulously recursive thing to call it, and sounds vaguely like a chess move or an event in the Franco-Prussian War.

My absolute favorite example of this? “
Entscheidungsproblem.”
