Cable threads way up hillside

Verizon had a largish bunch of guys digging up the yards of my suburban neighborhood this morning when I came home from work.

I hope it's FiOS coming in. Hope, hope, hope.

Fiber to the home, baby. 15 Mbps pwns joo!


meaning: cable, line, principle

綱領 == kouryou == (noun) general plan, main points, summary
横綱 == yokoduna ==  (noun) sumo grand champion

Left radical is 'thread' (糸), meaning 'cord' in this context. Right radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'towering hill', which acts phonetically to express 'strong'. Thus, 'strong cord'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Cable threads way up hillside.'
