Maybe I should quit law school and go study something that can get me out of Brazil. I love this country, but violence, life costs and the general positivity toward crooked lifestyles make this a terrible place to raise children.

Or I can move to some village where they don't have lowlifes, criminals or unbearable speculation.

We have a winner.

Have you ever been to a Brazilian village? There are many small towns with stable prices, conservative people and very unfrequent criminality for our patterns. Until recently, people in the town my grandmother's village is near to would leave their doors unlocked and windows opened, and her village itself knew absolutely no violence until tourists (and migrants seeking to attend them) destroyed that place.

Seriously, if you think I'm saying anything much, stay a month in Petrópolis sleeping with open doors and windows, spotting your phone downtown, walking around at night... Then do the same in Rio for one day.

If you find you can shout at someone, out loud or in your mind or in writing, you still have more suffering allotted to you in this life.

You shout a bit in your mind?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

That may have been a poor depiction. It may not sound in your mind like shouting, if only because we are rather unaware of our own minds. What I am talking about is wrath or control.

And we ourselves can certainly be the objects of our own wrath and control, and often are in certain personalities.

I've just smirked joyously after finding out Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence calls a vis major (i.e. an unpredictable and unstoppable natural event with juridical effects, usually a disaster) an "act of God". God-fearing Calvinists at their finest. Luso-Brazilian jurisprudence should adopt this term just so I could hear my blatantly Atheistic teacher saying that on class.

I usually shout out loud, but in my mind I mutter contemptuously.

Similar policies with booze, whores, and bacon.

Turkish looks great (best Latin alphabet IMHO) and sounds awful. Farsi sounds great and looks awful. Given that their sound banks isn't that different from each other, Iran could well adopt some version of Atatürk's alphabet.

I don't think the Arabic alphabet fits it well, IDK. It's fine for Arabic, I don't think anything but an abjad would fit it, but in Persian it's just weird.

Another language that should consider switching alphabets would be Hebrew. Modern Hebrew sounds basically like bad German and it's impossible to match their beautiful, ancient, letters with the modern mish-mash.
