It's the year of putting my hand in the river.

One of the many things that simply just amazes me to no end (well maybe to some end and probably nefarious) is how kanji fit together. Take for instance the kanji for year (年) and the kanji for money (金).  Putting these together you get this word: 年金 which means pension. How cool is that? Probably as cool as a penguins left foot! It just seems to me that learning Japanese gets easier because the building blocks stack so nicely. Actualy that would be a neat product. Kanji blocks like those wooden letter blocks my kids have. I wonder if you could play scrabble with them as well.
