English is the JavaScript of spoken languages.

Just think about it:

- it's extremely wide-spread for historical reasons;

- it is a somewhat random mash-up of at least three other languages;

- as much as all languages have their idiosyncrasies , it tends to have the more confusing ones.

@rysiek If English is the JavaScript, I just hope I never encounter the PHP of human languages.

@eviloatmeal @rysiek I started in Javascript... It's bad. I'm not sure PHP is worse.

@frank87 @rysiek I don't know about worse, but certainly bizarre and aggravating and backwards.


@eviloatmeal @frank87 PHP8 seems leaps and bounds better than when I left that space (around PHP5). So at least there's progress.
