I just created a new Windows server with the name "Dathon", to be paired with two other servers already named "Darmok" and "Jalad", so I am getting a kick out of these replies.

Should have hired a future Israeli PM to do the work.

They bombed the military hq of the occupying British forces, they even gave them a few days warning. Not comparable.


The Irgun murdered 91 people and wounded 46. You're right. The Syrian bombing is not at all comparable.

Additionally, the bombing was on the government headquarters in the King David Hotel. The military had offices there but let's review a list of the murdered:

91 people were killed, most of them being staff of the hotel or Secretariat: 21 were first-rank government officials; 49 were second-rank clerks, typists and messengers, junior members of the Secretariat, employees of the hotel and canteen workers; 13 were soldiers; 3 policemen; and 5 were members of the public.
So 70 of the 91 murdered were British non-military personnel.

Additionally, no phone calls were made by the Irgun to the British. 15 minutes before the explosion, they called the hotel desk. A few minutes later they called the French Consulate which wasn't even in the building, the third call--six minutes before the blast--was made to a newspaper. The paper called the authorities.

actually I think that conflict is none of our business and we shouldn't be involved at all

Out of the thousands of alien species we've met, we can't seem to translate this one particular alien language. Despite the fact that these aliens have a mouth, teeth, tongue, vocal cords remarkably like humans and also have a language that contains linguistic sounds like any other human language.

Oh okay.

The problem isn't the sounds. It's that the language is composed /entirely/ of idioms. Which are the hardest part of translation. Yeah, it can translate it, it just STILL makes no sense.

The stupid part is not the translation difficulty.. it's that no one would ever be able to actually learn said language naturally as a child, since apparently no one ever actually tells the stories the idioms are based on, or uses complete sentences.
