I'm sad that the world has adopted English as the language of science and business. It's insane. It's like adopting a psychotic murdering robot to clean your house. English is a mutt language that has never been redone, reworked or even designed. It's a combination of ice cream, meatballs and wine. All fine things by themselves but terrible when combined.
There are more English learners than there are native English speakers in the world. I'm really sorry world. I'm just so so sorry that you have to learn Germanic-French-Latin nonsense. It's terrible. It's a terrible language.
Update: I wrote this before I read Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson. It's fantastic and a better write-up of what I'm trying to say here.
They make no sense. There's so much context and they are literally confusing.
