This is rather difficult to explain with words and numbers but what other symbology can I communicate with other than sign language and telepathically...

Words and numbers are obviously very different...

But when adding and speaking numbers why do most people automatically replace the number Zero by saying the letter O...

Like they say "Oh" 7 "Oh" 75934 "Oh" 439 "Oh" 28...

Instead of properly saying "Zero" 7 "Zero" 75934 "Zero" 439 "Zero" 28...

But for some unknown reasons when most people speak and spell letters and words they never automatically replace the letter O with the word Zero...

Like they never ever say "I Went To The Zoo Today" by saying "I Went 2 The Z Zero Zero Today"...

The many strange wonders of numbers and our english language...

I mean like think about it...

Zero is a weird looking and sounding word...

That means nothing anyways...

While the letter O is also written and pronounced as Oh and Owe...

And who knows how the f##k else?!

When people give me a phone # and use O, I ask them how do they have a letter in between numbers.
When I give a phone #, I give it without the audio cadence people are used to! IE: 2017-39-875-6. Gets em every time.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Numberonics? Break it down to one syllable?

Or shorthand? instead of four, fo...

Handy with double oor words or "or", just 2-3 letters.

Floor=flo
Door= doe...advanced version
Chore= cho
Score=sco
More = Mo, with optional "e" moe

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

Everybody should start speaking Finnish as these problems are non-existent in the language.

Does the Finnish language use English letters pronounced differently or those Russian looking letters that appear like backwards upsidedown mirror images of English letters?!

Most everyone all over the world uses the same numbers...

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 because of money I suppose?!

Yes the classical Latin alphabet is used and all words are written exactly as they're pronounced so there can be no separate meanings to one single word.
