I am always curious about Numbers and Letters' discovery. I don't even know who found/discovered them. xD Got any idea?

Do you mean the letters and numbers that we are using right now? Arabic numerals, which are 0123456789, were developed by Indian mathematicians. As for the English language, I believe that it originated from the primitive languages from way back and got to become English today. If you mean numbers and letters in general, I would say that people developed letters and symbols to communicate from a long time ago. No single person found or discovered it; there were many different groups who used different symbols. It's the same for numbers - it was a group of people who thought of numbers to count things.
