Ah, nevermind.  I'm German and don't bother about this analogy.  I
find it almost very inappropriate from an *Austrian* without any sense
of humour to complain about this.  Basically i don't care about the
words you used since they served a purpose and nothing more.  And now
i'm going to check out this article.  Thanks for the hint.
