    The Tiki problem.

    All around the world we have new 'superbugs' infecting people, global terrorism, climate hijinks, and the Kard...hians So what bothers me?

    What is correct - Kon Tiki, KonTiki, Kon-Tiki, Kon-tiki, KONTIKI * ?

    Why haven't world leaders convened a global K3 Summit. Or would a K7 be better? A k20 maybe?


    edit: can't belive the auto censor won't let me post the Kardas.......'s name. Score one for good taste.

    * Thank you, Chris Stark, that was the variation that got me thinking about it and I plumb forgot it. Magrette used Kontiki - another variation that I forgot - though those were the two that got me thinking about it since neither were used by Thor Heyerdahl.

    The $1Q+ World debt is more of a problem.

    None of these is correct. Eterna uses all caps, but the K and the T are just larger font caps.

    Well, Chris just shot down my argument.

    Still, I'll go with KonTiki.

    Being an uneducated Yorkshireman I can say or write it any old way without fear of retribution.

    I don't think WatchUSeek's servers could handle the added web traffic if every third Google search turned up a WUS thread...
