Unicode brings only sorrow to computing world: multi-byte encodings, variable-length encodings, some angry Japanese fucking up their whole computer language by introducing encodings because unicode fails to represent some moronic symbols correctly in their obsolete language. Encodings, for fuck's sake. It's 2011 and they are introducing support for multiple, mostly obsolete, forgotten and other no-one-cares-about encodings. Shove your ancient glyphs up your ass. Ruby is dead.
Eh... what I was talking about? Ah, yes, Unicode sucks. All the languages without their glyphs in extended ASCII should be deprecated. The best choice of world language seems to be English, maybe Esperanto. Then everything fits in 8 bits and we live happily ever after.
