As you may know I am a bit obsessed with efficiency. In high school I taught myself how to speak while inhaling so I wouldn't need to waste time breathing, When I ditched high school one day to go visit the Phoenix state legislature I remember being so impressed with the man who read the tasks before the body. He was a speed reader and I had never heard anyone speak so quickly.

He inspired me to learn how to say all the presidents; names in one breath, a feat I still master today.

Anyway today I learned about a style of writing called boustrophedon. It was a style used by the Etruscans. Basically they would alternate the direction of writing on each line so your eyes wouldn't have to waste time running back over to one side of the page. BRILLIANT!!

Why don't we do that!?
