Funny video, but I don't entirely agree with it. I like not having to read too far in context to know whether a sentence means to use "some" or "sum." I feel like every word could have a hundred meanings if they all had to be spelled like they sound because you would be limited to certain patterns. Also, English is a mash-up of several other languages, so it would have been impossible for early English speakers to predict the phonics/spellings that we would need today. Maybe I'm just reading too much into this...lol

I love it. Just forwarded it.

The type writer in the background is a nice touch.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.
