I saw this and thought of my friend Nathan.

Changes to the English language

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phase-in plan that would be known as 'Euro-English'.

In the first year, 's' will replace the soft 'c'. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard 'c' will be dropped in favor of the 'k'. This should klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome 'ph' will be replased with the 'f'. This will make words like 'fotograf' 20% shorter!

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expected to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double leters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of the silent 'e' in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing 'th' with 'z' and 'w' wiz 'v'. During ze fifz year ze unesesary 'o' kan be dropd from vords kontaining 'ou' and similar changes vud of kurs be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters. After ze fifz yer ve vil hav a rali sensibl ritn styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evriun vil find it ezi tu undrstand ech ozer.

Zen Z Drem Vil Finali Kum Tru!!

I logged into my Youtube page and saw that I have watched a total of 3,219 videos, and that is just when I'm logged in. And since I'm only logged in about half the time, that's a whole lot of videos. Also I haven't posted a single video(I am not techno-savvy), but I have 102 favorites. What I love about youtube is the memories it can invoke. Like I typed in Carman, and found a bunch of videos from his concerts, including one that I when to as a kid. Or there's the fun stuff like the original Numa Numa guy, and the leggo Princess Bride. And then there's just the butt load of wushu and highlander videos that I have to collect. I had a point when I started this but I've completely lost it. If I remember it I'll add another post.
Oh yeah, one more thing. Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Nathan and Maria Epp, who got married yesterday. the wedding was awesome.
