Here are links to stories 99% of blog readers would ignore:
A professor from All Souls College, Oxford, reads a portion of Ancient Babylonian language. He then explains how the language is reproduced. The professor is quite entertaining. Running time: 3:36.
Another individual reads the Epilogue to the Code of Hammurabi in the original Akkadian language in 53 seconds. This takes a much shorter time than one needs to read a provision of Congressional legislation. I am sure the original Akkadian language makes more sense.
I found both links through Dr. Claude Mariottini's blog.
