Etymology[edit]

I was doing some snooping around on the net concerning the etymology of the word Kiang. Just with the research from the net I found that the word Kiang comes from the Tibetan word Rkya meaning: brass vessel like a teapot with a spout, pot-belly or paunch.

Ok, so add it. You have the reference. List it. Oh, you bailed from Wikipedia user-hood. That's a shame because Dyingmonster is a damn cool username. Stephen Charles Thompson (talk) 07:23, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

The author of the merge proposal did not post on this talk page. In response, however, I say "go for it." The child articles will never be more than stubs. Stephen Charles Thompson (talk) 07:22, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't bother to discuss unless it appears that someone cares. If no one does, then I make the fix as time permits. No need to be so snotty in the above section, by the way. We've lost a lot of editors since 2008 and it's probably because those of us here can be so snarky. Just a hint.  ;-) Montanabw(talk) 19:39, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
I agree with the merge, and had actually been considering putting up the tags myself. It's better to have one solid article than a bunch of sub-stubs that will never get any bigger. Dana boomer (talk) 19:28, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
