      BTW, three weeks ago I found a fragment of an inscribed oracle bone
      among our Old Assyrian Tablets. My colleagues from Sinology were a
      little bit upset, until we found out that the "J" of the siglum is a "U"
      and the bone really doesn't belong to 19th/18th century B.C. K├╝ltepe.
