Catch 23

Every language can be spoken in the vocalisation of another language. This makes a crazy fractal number of variations of possibilities for communication from existing languages.

I like it. It's an intriguing little game where interest and effort are rewarded with some form of non-superficial appreciation and respect.

Personal interaction is another world entirely when there is no common, fluently spoken language-- there are more smiles, and less pressure. I'll also never be forced into conversations or asked questions I don't want to answer.

How to buy fish:
1. Woman brings live fish in a bucket to your door. They look like catfish, I think they're caught from streams and rivers
2. After you pick your fish and pay, woman clubs fish on the head to death with a block of wood
3. Woman guts fish
