What you may literally hafta do if you wanna learn Chinese --- some of their text is arranged in a vertical column that hasta be scanned from the bottom to the top in order to decipher it. Makes ya wonder how the Chinese don't get sore necks from all dat bobble-headed noddin' they do whenever they sit down to read da mornin' paper.
