Ed Rondthaler, is an interesting old man...a 103 year old man to be precise. Former "President of the American Literacy Council" he gives us an interesting lesson about the absurdity of the written English Language as he sees it from a purely phonetic point of view.
*Neat tidbit about him is how he believes he got to be so old from a quote from Wikipedia:
Rondthaler credits his long and healthy life to clean living, good genes, and regular cold showers. In an interview with CNN Ed stated "When my brother in 1918 came home from the army, he said, 'Ed, whenever you take a hot shower, end it with an ice cold one and count to 100. When your older brother tells you to do something, you do it," he said.
I highly suggest that after you watch this you go ahead and check out the comments posted up on Boing Boing. Very educational and interesting.
