German radio broadcasts in Klingon

Germany's state-run radio is broadcasting in a new language - Klingon.

The popularity of the show in Germany and abroad prompted Deutsche Welle network to offer online reports and audio clips in Klingon.

The station said the language will be added to the existing 30 languages that they already use on their homepage.

"We wanted something special to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the site," said a spokesperson.

The Klingon reports on the Deutsche Welle website are supposed to underline the station's philosophy of multicultural, intergalactic openness.

"We should celebrate our 10-year presence in the online universe with a cross-border language," DW director Erik Bettermann said. "This should help users from other galaxies get an impression of Germany." - Ananova.com

In the interest of universal multiculturalism we will broadcast in a fictitious language from a fictitious culture from a fictitious planet from a fictitious galaxy far, far, away......

And now, news from the EU.....

This has to be a satire, right? Or has the U.S.S. Kumbaya finally set sail?

Are you sure this is not from the Onion?

This is the dumbest thing I have heard all day, and with all of the crap that CBS is spewing, that says a lot.

I heard it on a radio newsbreak. Given the local talk stations, either ABC or CNN radio news.

I thought the Treaty of Versailles banned Klingon.

It depends on whether it's an image online or on your hard drive.

If it's online you have to make an image tag, like this:

<img src="">

Do it exactly like that, noting the spacing between "img" and "src". The actual image link goes between the two quotation marks.

If the image in question is on the hard drive, you need a hosting service. Here's one:

File Deposit

Upload your image and then make the image tag as above.

I also highly suggest you play in the sandbox:
