Is there actually someone capable of reading these signs or they have been put there just for ornamental and historical reasons?

I can read them (thanks to the grammar lessons in school) but rather slowly.

Amúgy már bocsi de mi a köze egymáshoz a neonácizmusnak és magyar hoagyományok ápolásához?

I do not know whether to laugh or cry when I see these old Hungarian script signs. When you see someone use these, you can pretty accurately predict what political party the person votes for. Unfortunately it has become very much a political statement for people with nationalist feelings for whom the worst swore word is "multinational". We are an ancient and proud nation, why the hell should we use the letters forced upon us by the bloody Roman Empire???? :-)

Anyway, 99% of the people cannot read them, moreover, at least 80% does not even know it is supposed to be read right to left.

This script still does not have an Unicode representation, because different groups of its proponents cannot agree how exactly it should be implemented.

My newest vid:


I had some problems during the recording:
- strong crosswind
- I recorded the video until Balatonkeresztúr but my phone can record only 4GB once and when I started the second vid I touched the screen on the top so it started to focus to the sky and everything went dark...

anyway that was my trip.
