You forgot that it could be written Bra-gin and all things would be clear.

Or better yet, Bra-zin. It's not like Vietnamese can't write or type Z.

What's the point??

The point is this "system" is faulty to its core. It's not even dedicated to its alleged cause. It's like an mp3 player which can't play mp3's.

What's its alleged cause in your opinion? :ohwell:

chuyện những mùa Đông đi qua thời con gái.
Bóng đổ dài, bước chân người mê mải
Gió chở mùa về,
hoang hoải cả giấc mơ..

It would be unnecessary to recite what you wrote in your previous posts.

Yeah that's why I don't see why it doesn't dedicate to its alleged cause.
Actually I don't understand the whole points of yours. Are you trying to prove that Vietnamese is stupid as a people? What's the purpose?
Well but you said peace. Let's be it.

People are always stupid. If not in one aspect then in another.

Neither do you understand mine. This whole thing is simply meaningless.
