This honestly reminds me of Hebrew, which is written without vowels (except for children and American Jews who like to sing Hebrew prayers like "Almighty God will rain fiery wrath upon ye" to the tune of "Its a small world after all" or "Yellow Submarine"...I kid you not).

But you cannot read Hebrew without the vowels if you do not know the meaning of the words. Once you can understand Hebrew pretty well and have a large vocabulary, vowels actually slow you down.

English is such a beautiful language; as it can somehow hold the historical timeline of a past, present, and future in the very use of its own diction. It readily adapts, and at the same time, casts off new expressions, from all those that the mother tongue moistens, whilst keeping such opine of the past and present at least well read by the future. At least so far,.................................

I am all for new expression, but if that means cutting off the great veins of the past, then, I guess we shall see you at the watering hole.

You leave the guy alone. He is the new Tom Hill.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

America has produced in literature some of the most outstanding use of English. I kneed not even mention any examples, if such smegwash for the Amerikan modern generation Zero use such a pitiful attempt at discourse.

I beg to differ.
Tom Hill, may he rest in piece, could never be replicated.
