I accidentally pronounced the first letter in 'рюкзак' as the English 'p', and it sounded pretty disgusting.

I can see how that happens, my condolences x) Maybe if you really quickly think of the Greek rho when you see р, your brain won't have time to make pull disgusting tricks on you :)

Thanks! Its funny, the 'r' sound in Phoenician also looks like a 'p'. And I'm sure my brain will find a way no matter what!

Rucksack should be accepted as well as backpack

It's translated very much word-to-word, but it is still possible to translate "How much does this RUCKSACK cost" and should therefore be accepted!
