Hall’s Rule of Social Order #215
The English language is stupid.
It’s ludicrous. Rules, then exceptions to those rules. Logic, then words that defy that logic. We’ve have this stupid language for centuries, and we just continue with the madness. There is no end in sight. Sometimes, I wonder if the AOLers and shorthand IMers are pure evil or truly revolutionary geniuses.
