And if Mike's screenname is his actual name, I wouldn't be surprised if he's somewhat familiar with it (though yes, Farkas is actually a Hungarian name, but it's not rare to see it in Slovakia).
This is why Liba got shifted to my AA list, I can't even properly translate one word I already know

As MadArcand accurately notes, I am Hungarian. But still, I claim general ignorance on all languages.
Very interesting, definitely a useful skill around these parts.
