Is this a glitch in the Matrix or has this been discussed before? I'm not flaming, I just can't find the previous thread and it's tripping me out.

I'm not that long active here, but it's possible that it was discussed before. I mean its an obvious question that I think will bother most keeners sooner or later.
In Shadowlands Episode I you can hear it pronounced by King Lick at about 2:30: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V7fOKTK5U0
It's not official, but it's something I guess.

Yeah, I, too, feel like this topic has been made about a dozen times. Why the Shikadi, always? :mort

Birds don't have teeth... but I think they look like a bird as well, so they might be another missing link between birds and .... well something.
