Yeah, one of my students for my Latin for beginners course brought me a page he'd downloaded about Bosnia.

How Jules Vernsian, eh?

Yeah, my dad picks it up on the shortwave out at the cottage.

I also saw (in one of the national dailies a couple of years back) a whimsical list of suggestions of official languages for the European Union (everything from Esperanto to Klingon made the list). The suggestion that made the most sense, though, was Latin. And, as the article pointed out, it wouldn't be the first time that a dead language has been resurrected for a new nation.
