An Idea (Hopefully Non-offensive)

    As I read all this stuff about auxilliary languages and Uusosiun (oh,
geez, I forget the name.  Daniel, I apologize!), I can't help but always
think to myself, "Hey, I can make a way better universal language than that!"
(as I originally thought when seeing Esperanto for the first time), and I
imagine that this thought (or a similar one) has occurred to many.  I myself
have come up with an alphabet and a set of phones, but I never got around to
making one.  So, here's what I think:
    Why don't we have a competition?
    Let's all create a universal auxilliary language and then send to a group
of us to judge (since putting them up on e-mails would be long, tedious and
impractical).  We can even all submit like ten dollars, or something, and the
winner will win it all, or something like that.  I live in Orange County, and
I see that Marcus lives in West Hollywood, and I know there are a few more in
the Southern California area, so we could judge.  Or, if there's another area
of the world in which there's a larger number of us clustered together, then
we could send them there.  Anyway, but those are details that should only be
looked if we actually adopted such an idea.  So, what do you think?  I think
it would be fun.  :)
