    How come they skipped cuneiform and all the really ancient writing forms?

    Other than that, there's some blingin' ass calligraphy there. Good find.

    No one started graffiti/vandilism. This started as soon as monkeys turned to men and we realized we can inscribe names/messages/whatever on our surroundings and have others see, and be influenced by.

    Have you ever seen the inside of a caveman's cave? Do you think they were Latin?
