Language is BAD at:
> conveying complex information
> spatial information
> logic and cold analysis (we invented maths and other 'languages'
> for that)
> conveying emotions, senses and feelings
... we seem to have a big problem: we have to deliver perfect documents
using an imperfect tool (the language)...
No wonder we are having fun!
