here's Iambic pentameter:
Noble patricians, patrons of my right,
Defend the justice of my cause with arms;
And, countrymen, my loving followers,
Plead my successive title with your swords.
from opening of Shakespeare's Titus http://wordyenglish.com/titus/act1.html
Iambic pentameter, is the most idiotic thing in English. Back in early 1990s, i always tried to understand it, but never did. Today, info is ripe. I read Wikipedia, understand it in 5 min. English, can't rime, period. you just have alliteration and the like. #xahwords
Sam Harris, is even more extreme with abstraction and stilted words, yet, he can be understood.

Peter Thiel on Trump, Gawker, and Leaving Silicon Valley (Interview by Rubin Report)
Peter Thiel is not a great speaker. His voice and utterances is not melodious. You listen to him for a while, but you don't get or remember what he's saying. i guess part of it is the structure or his thought pattern.
