The major adventure is to claim your authentic, true being, which is not culturally given to you. The culture will not explain to you how to be a real human being. It will tell you how to be banker, politician, Indian chief, masseuses, actress, whatever, but it will not give you true being.
— Terence McKenna

10 fun facts about Euskara
It’s the oldest language in Europe and the last surviving pre-IE language of the continent.
It’s agglutinative. Which means that words like bederatziehungarrenarenganainokoak can happen.
It has 13 cases.
And around 80,000 words.
It has ~1 million speakers: around 750,000 speakers and around 400,000 passive speakers (they understand Basque but can’t speak it).
A Basque speaker is called euskaldun, which means “the one that owns Euskara”. Euskaldun zahar - the old one that owns Euskara - is the term used to describe people coming from a Basque-as-a-first-language-speaking family; euskaldunberri - the new one that owns Euskara - is the word for new speakers.
It has 5 dialects: Mendebaldekoa (Western), Erdialdekoa (central), Nafarra (Navarrese), Nafar-Lapurtera (Navarro-Lapurdian) and Zuberera (Souletin).
It’s the 3rd fastest spoken language in the world.
Standard orthography was set in the 1960s.
It’s the most beautiful language in the world. Well, that’s not a fact... ^_^

Bond is not a hero, nor is he depicted as being very likable or admirable. He is a Secret Service Agent. He’s not a bad man, but he is ruthless and self-indulgent. He enjoys the fight - he also enjoys the prizes. In fiction people used to have blood in their veins. Nowadays they have pond water. My books are just out of step. But then so are all the people who read them.
- Ian Fleming, on his literary creation James Bond
