Are numerical digits any different from letters of the alphabet? Weren't all ASCII characters created equal? Don't all of them occupy the same number of bits? Isn't 'W' just as long to a computer as '1'? Would you buy a keyboard with a missing 'E' over one with a missing '0' (zero)?
What is this discrimination for, then? Why do these royal 'numbers' get to parade on a keyboard over the common lot of the 'letters', then? Is Mathematics any more important than English? How would you say three thousand seven hundred and sixty nine, if you didn't have language?
How would you sign a cheque? How would Milton talk about Paradise Lost? How would Shakespeare say 'Hamlet'?
Is equality only for the sexes then?
What's the point of all this?
Oh, nothing. I'm just sleepy.
