For those of you who learned English as a second language or are currently trying to learn our confusing AF language, serious props to you. English is so hard, and even native English speakers don't understand why "bomb" isn't pronounced "boom."
When you really take a good, hard look at the English language, you'll feel like an idiot for even being fluent in it. The fact that "It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though" is an actual sentence is thoroughly ridiculous.
So I think the lesson here is that we should ditch "goodbye" and go back to our roots. It's time we brought back "God be with ye," because it's a pretty badass way to say bye. Try it the next time you're on the phone with your parents and just see how it goes down.
Even the very first letter of the alphabet can give you a bit of a headache when you really think about it. "A" makes so many different sounds. The "A" in "track" is completely different from the "A" in "bagel."
This one should be pretty easy to fix. As a collective English-speaking society, we should just agree to drop the "ueue." Instead, we'll just type things like, "How long was the q?" Or "Do we need to q before the concert?"
That's really just for the Brits, though. Americans get stressed out about the weird word "queue" and instead just say "line."
As with most things, the rest of the world is on the same page about something and then the Anglophones mess everything up. Of course we would be the black sheep and call it a pineapple, because English speakers are skilled at making things harder than they need to be.
