    Keep the C and ditch the K.

    W can also fuck right off.

    I really detest the letter B. There's nothing that I like about it.

    My favourite letter may be F. K and S aren't bad, either. Y is somewhat mysterious.

    IMSO, this is likely because you haven't found the right question. It's astonishing the insights the right question can reveal. Unfortunately, "what is the right question?" isn't the right question to discover the right question. At best it starts you searching for it.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    If I were designing a capital a based on the lower case, and a lower case q based on the upper, here's what I'd do.

    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    I want to change my answer. It's definitely w. Named "double u" but it's actually two v's stuck together. I can't imagine the chain of stupid english decisions and foppery that led us to the situation.

    We call it double-v. It's still stupid.

    I have never given this any thought. And as I try, I fail to see any reason to. To me, the alphabet simply is, and that's that. It is a means to an end. It serves its purpose well enough to ignore it, as I see it.

    Moreover, I have difficulty imagining a (sane) mindset in which there is any particular reason to consider one or more letters "better" or "worse" than others (apart from certain specialized pedantic fields). I mean, honesty: who cares? And why?

    The ability to think up better letters and explain why they're better should be in a test of creative intelligence or something. It's OK to think like Ptah about this but if you really can't think of any improvements to the alphabet and explain or if you don't even know how, as opposed to just not wanting to, I think that indicates a mental problem.

    I dislike writing the lowercase letter f - I usually write in capitals anyway.
