More people should learn sign language. Not only does it let you talk to the hard-of-hearing, you can also talk with your mouth full, have a conversation in a noisy room or at a concert, and more, amirite?

@Ethan Sounds painful.

We had text books that had pictures and explanations.

Huh. Well, thanks for all that information. Is it moderately difficult? Because I was awful at spanish.

If everyone knew it, it'd kind of suck though.
The good thing about knowing it now is that if you know it and your friend knows it you can gossip subtly in public. If everyone knows it, that wouldn't be possible

People make up their own languages all the time, and there's more than one version of sign language. If it's that important to you to gossip with your friends in public, just don't use the same sign language as the people around you.
