Hey, croissantfriend, just a quick heads up:
Sanskrit is actually spelled Sandscript. You can remember it by it's a form of writing, or script, made up in the Middle East where it's all sand, 'Sandscript'
Have a nice day!
I have become everything I hate.
It's actually Han-script, because it originated in China.
THE SAGA CONTINUES!
It's actually "hand script" because it was written by hand.
That's just a folk etymology. Originally it was ham script, because ham is delicious.
That's actually a common misconception.
I thought that was invented by Han Solo?
My flair on /r/badhistory is "The Han shot first"
(I think it was related to some badhistory about how great all the Steppe peoples were and how everything nasty was the fault of the Chinese. Or vice versa, I can't remember)
That's absolutely fantastic
