A Revelation In Chinese

Evan had a run in during his impromptu Chinese word-game, and he learned something.

I asked her to explain the two characters in "holy crap." The first symbol is the symbol for the word "God." She showed me that the symbol for "people" is just two lines away from being "God." Take the symbol for people, add one line in the middle, and the word "strong" is made. Add another line over the whole symbol, and the word is "God." The way she explained it is perfect.
It's a great little story - go read.
