    Nah, English will evolve, and we'll abolish the letter "z". I mean, when was the last time you wrote a word with z in it?

    their is an almost guaranteed way to get it to work general A sends a message, general B continues to send a message until general A responses, if another messenger from general B arrives, General A can assume general B didnt receive the message, and send another message, once General As messenger arrived, at which point no more messages from general B will arrive, so they both attack edit: this is under the assumption that the fail rate of messengers is below 100% and their is plenty of time between attacks

    having a system of informal writing, for messages between people, involving a system of language that is phonetic; you spell the words like you pronounce them; certain redudant letters, such as "c" "x" and "Q" are replaced by letters that sound them out, such as "s" and "k" for "c", "ks" for "x", and "kw" for "q"; vowels each have two sounds, short and long, with long being identified by a dot over the letter; for example, 'u' is what 'u' sounds like in "under", but 'u*' (imagine the dot being above 'u') sounds like the 'oo' sound in "boot" for example, an american might write the sentence: "Because of my cold, I'm now gonna miss school. Hooray!" as: "be*coz uv mi* ko*ld, I*m now gunnu mis sku*l. Hura*y!" this would be an informal system, used between users who know how the other speaks, since it uses the way each person pronounces each word in their own way in order to spell out hte word phoenetically; it makes the writing more personal and intimate, but also can lead to some confusion, which is why it is not used in informal/formal writing, where regular english would be used now that I think about the idea more, I think that's actually how European languages used to work, back in medieval times; everyone learned their own local dialects and vernacular, but if you were to be a science smarty person, you wrote your stuff in latin

    So the solution to the two generals problem is to send a third of your army into the dangerous valley, all of them with a message to attack at a certain time with the survivors to ally with the other general, and then assume the message got through.

    A prime minister in England gets buried under a slab in an otherwise ordinary cemetery? My home town's founder got that much. And it's a small town that can only claim that most of its children want to be somewhere else. I don't think there's a single US president that doesn't have a monument.
