A little humor is very good.

sarasvaþi was a sweet girl, I am sure, so much so that when she died, I 
think, those who were imagining about her beyond practical, made her 
rise up, up and fly away. Now you watch what happens to Elizabeth when 
she dies. They narrowly failed making one such with Hillary Clinton as 
she is suspected of having Parkinson's which condition her daughter says 
has an anecdotal remedy with MaryJane. Hmmm... Who went to her 
daughter's house instead of to the doctor when they suddenly fell?

As for Thoth, he is okay. Don't worry. Egyptian man => demi-god => god 
has not much of a consequence in the West dominated culture of this day.

Okay, Richard. Your probably have knowledge of how writing evolved in 
the whole world. Tell us how it was in South Asia. Was it like I said, 
sound => letter? I assume only to know about English and Indic in this
