Are you going to develop a conlang based on that?
Is anyone?
What would be the phoneme inventory?
How about phonotactics, sandhi, and allophony?
("sandhi" sounds quite uncomfortable in such a lanaguage.)
Especially in an elevator.

Gives a whole new meaning to "affrication".

Alias(es): Tobias, Sam, various online pseudonyms typically involving eggs.
Location: Illinois, at the moment.
Date of birth: A couple of decades and change ago, in mid-November.
Occupation: Graduate student.
Interests: Linguistics (morphology and phonology - most recently, also sign language prosody), psychology, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. Also in possession of far too much useless knowledge about the Voyager Golden Records and Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, for whatever reason.
Favorite music: Mostly folk and folk rock, "steampunk music" for all that you can call it a coherent genre, dark cabaret, show tunes, and trailer/epic music.
Political ideology: Left-leaning in many - possibly most - respects.
Conlangs: Numerous. Most recently, Alál (currently in its fourth year of existence, I do believe) and Ngäliv Ëra.
Other hobbies: Scuba diving, sailing, robotics, programming (predominantly in Python and Inform 7), longsword dance, traditional animation, video editing, reading cheesy science fiction, etc.
Religion: I could be called an agnostic deist.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Going on adventures somewhere, with a published book and a cat [2018 update: have successfully obtained a cat]. Having a "Dr." in front of my name. Getting myself involved in first contact somehow.

Alias(es): C.J., Hrothgar, Hroþgarð (hmm where did I get those?), Jesus
Location: Port Orchard, Washington, United States
Date of birth: May 6, 1995
Gender: Male
Occupation: Team Member at Pizza Hut
Interests: Playing guitar, reading, conlanging, and certain 'extracurricular activites'
Favorite music: Blues; Rock n Roll (1950-70); Rock (1970-, minus most 80's rock. Ick.); more specific kinds like punk rock, alternative, etc.; Metal (1970-, but not the more extreme stuff. I can tolerate screeching/growling if used in moderation or if the music is good enough to help tune it out. NO BLAST BEATS.); Grunge; and some Rap.

Political ideology: Liberal/Democrat/Left Wing, but more conservative than most who would use that label
Conlangs: I Ichi, and several other long-dead attempts. I narrowed my conlanging focus to developing just ONE lang to make it as close to perfect as I can.

Other hobbies: I'm pretty boring. I only have like a couple hobbies.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Working at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and enjoying my big comfy paycheck.
Religion: Monotheist. I can't really say Christian because I don't really follow Christian beliefs and tenets. I'm closer to Jewish, but no one in my nuclear family is Jewish, plus I don't really follow their beliefs or tenets either. I believe in God, and that he created everything, and I suppose most of the morality of the Bible, of which I haven't read but a couple of books. However, there isn't a single story that I've read or heard of from the Bible which I take literally.

My beliefs do not conflict with science, though. I believe science discovers and quantifies the rules/patterns that God made and thus is every bit as true as my beliefs.
I am a conlanger, a guitarist, a liar, a songwriter, a marijuana smoker, and a reader. Who are you?

Alias: I used to be lryda mbazha, on the old CWB. Maybe five years ago. That meant 'dark flame' in my conlang of the time. Shanhoia means 'golden flame', in a current naming lang.

Location: California
Date of birth: June 1990
Gender: Female
Occupation: Idle/confused recent college grad

Hobbies: Mostly a conworlder, not a conlanger. I spend a lot of time making up elaborate stories, settings, and characters that rarely get written down beyond scattered notes.

Interests: Ling (though I majored in it and am kind of sick of it), anthro, gender, psych, art.

Political ideology: Democrat, although I never maintain interest in reality thoroughly enough to be a well-informed citizen.

Conlangs: A handful of naming langs: Yengdo, Hluc, Kuuzva, 'Fig' (actually the name of the setting), Ohebant, Tarakhu. All of these are just sketches to generate place and character names.

Where do you see yourself in ten years? As a Marriage and Family Therapist burdened with grad school debt.

Date of birth: july 1986
Gender: male
Occupation: sociologist, nominally... I'm currently doing IT
Interests: philosophy, history, anthropology, linguistics, literature. also videogames, sex positiveness, politics... i could go on
Favorite music: rock, classical, metal, nueva trova, nueva cancion latinoamericana...
Political ideology: I guess i'm sort of a social democrat? I wouldn't mind a revolution, if you can convince me of the viability of your project, and have definite nostalgia for the socialism. I'm definitely a secularist, and I dislike capitalism, even though it looks like it'll be a while before its time is past.
Conlangs: Ieseleu, Riyoro[in development], Sanga[having the dubious honor of being the first speedlang], Kor[in development], and a bunch of other scraplangs
Other hobbies: boxing, biking, running, weightlifting, shooting guns... but also painting, writing, and watching youtube videos. I sound quite burly, don't I? I'm not, I'm squishy and easy going.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? I don't. the idea had always been to start making money and go live on my own... now that that's happened, well... I dunno.
