Transformers 3 quote

Best line ever about the Russian language:
"It's the Cyrillic alphabet! It's like all the buttons you never push on a calculator!"

A funny thing I noticed about cell phones here- In English, with a 26 letter alphabet, each key on a cell phone has 3 letters of the alphabet (ABC, DEF, GHI, etc). Since Russian has about 33 letters, 4 letters are forced to fit on each key (АБВГ, ДЕЖЗ, ИЙКЛ, and so on). Check it out:
 Russian is awesome, don't you agree?


  1. At least we don't have to use diphtongs for natural sounds of our language :P

  2. That's true. When it comes to pronunciation, the Cyrillic alphabet is far superior to the Latin one. I think your alphabet is a lot easier to learn because the sounds of the letters don't change.
