Boy it has been a while since I have seen the Eszett. I have always wished English used it too.

Oddly enough, although English used the long s (ſ) for many years, it never did adopt the Eszett (ß). Maybe we should start a movement. You know, just start using it in all words with "ss" and "sz" -- thereby might a de facto change be wrought. 😁

That mangled B still haunts me in my dreams.

This quote pretty much states what I thought the moment I heard this experssion. It really makes little sense.
