This is how the English Language conquered the world

Questions:

What is the past tense of the verb to grind?

ground.

What is the past tense of the verb to find?

found.

What is the pas tense of the verb to bind?

bound.

And what is the past tense of the verb to mind?

minded

The English Language never ceases to astound. With this unpredictable weapon, anglo saxons have bamboozled and baffled other nations into complete WTFitude for centuries. This particular example has been itching the back of my brain for some time now, so to finally assuage the irritation, I hereby propose we change the verb to mind forthwith. The past tense of to mind is now mound. Take that, Oxford English Dictionary.

It's OK, you can thank me later.
