When a stock in your portfolio goes up very nicely in one day, and after hours they announce a secondary offering.  >:(

¿Spanish
BTW, I think the Spanish way of doing this makes so much more sense. Why do you have to read the whole sentence before knowing if it's a question or an exclamation? Why can't you get that info before you start reading it?

English is definitely not an optimal language. But when in Rome...

For the same reason that in English all the modifiers are after the noun.
It's much nicer having the noun first. So you know the big black prickly item is a fruit not a monster.

"It's about to fall, that box!"
That's why Hungarian is a LOT worse:

"I'm always putting my eineklach in the oven, a batch of rugulach."

or even worse...

"Cut me up, and schmear me up, and throw me down the stairs, a piece of bread and butter."

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.
