An old friend of mine recently sent me an email. Being a linguist, he always finds creative (read: annoying) ways to use his words to baffle me. After about five minutes, I usually just give up. However, recently I discovered about this fantastic website! Here's the email:

    $\begingroup$ Just for the sake of practice I also ended up writing something in Python. WOW ... this is a load of work and I only did the part in the pastebin. But hey, now I'm better with Python and parsing text in general. :) $\endgroup$ – kleinsinus Jan 14 at 2:17
