    Most science is published in English.

    In the old days there was more published in german, french and such. But back then this wasn't really a problem either because they were all educated people.

    And before that there was of course latin and greek.

    How dull the world would be without all the different languages.

    Efficiency has nothing on beauty, intrigue and mystery.

    Let me introduce you to a word: Esperanto.

    And let me introduce you to its outcome: bollocks.

    Now go introduce yourself to a Baccardi Breezer. Or, if you're feeling particularly gamey, maybe a wine spritzer. Go easy on the hard stuff though.

    But my point is not that. My point is anyone will be able to read it. All humans speaking the same languages. You don't have to be a scientists to discover a problem in a scientific paper. You also don't need to be a sentiist to advance a scientific theory. Its really simple really.

    It also has other benefits also.

    I would actually give a fuck about your opinion if you did actually refute my theory.

    The mere thought of Muslim thinking in bed is enough to make me tingle.

    He did.
    Do you know what Esperanto is?

    It is a new language that was started from scratch.
    Perhaps you should look it up, before attempting to denigrate someone else.

    Well now I do as I looked it up on wiki. Seems like poor leadership it didn't work out. You need to have money and know the right peoples. If I was a dictator I would make it compulsory for everyone to learn this language. You have to be assertive, beat people up if necessary you have to be ruthless.

    Although scientists write in English normal people still don't understand their language. Usually scientists go through a decade of study (or longer) before they master it themselves.

    The thought of some other posters thinking in bed would make me nauseous. I'll leave out names.

    Language itself is a barrier for pure conveyance. Not only are there differences between languages, but the use of language is like a shortcut that leaves out most of the truth of the matter. If we could somehow relate by coveying pure experience, then there could be no lying, no decieving, no hate, no misunderstanding.

    Picture BR in his stained tighty whities with the big red elastic band wrapping around his ample soft, pasty tissue, long gray hairs growing like feral wheat on the prairie, hands locked behind the head revealing bushy, fragrant gray underarm pubes, large moles and a scaly rash. Toes wriggling with their yellowed uncut nails all twisting into a stretch to reach the donut holes on the bed table.

    Yeah. As it helps people. If we had a boat and we had to row really fast to get to the shore and then there was a lazy basted on board who didn't want to row. And was slowing us down what would you do? Am sure as hell I could give him a good kicking up the ass.
