Let me first introduce myself. *Nelson* jiH. I'm a very beginning klingon
learner. I'm still trying to make sense out of everything in TKD and I'm
also trying my hand with the postal course available on the net.

Anyway, I found this particular chalenge interesting, so here is my take on

Please help me understand how I got it wrong ('cause I'm sure some of it is
wrong, if not all!)
