In March 2010, some nerd wrote a blogspam article for collegehumor titled “New Puncuation Marks for Grammer Nerds”. I didn’t realize it immediately, but this guy knew something I didn’t.

Most of the article was unfunny jokes, but it contained this image.

It got me thinking. In every single language, it is usually read linearly. Theres a start of a statement, and an end. Every symbol contains exactly one symbol prefixing it, and exactly one postfixing it.
