Why:

  • talk to Deaf people (note: lowercase 'deaf' is the physical condition; capital 'Deaf' is the social/cultural identification)
  • different mode = fun
  • talk clearly in noisy situations
  • talk across a room without interrupting anyone
  • talk through glass
  • talk to temporarily mute people

If you're interested in learning (or teaching) how to sign, or just chatting in ASL, come on by.
