Why... Why'd they pick Spanish?

Using Greenwich for time why not for language too? 😉

I mean, no sensible ruling body would choose English as the world's common language. It's kind of a mess.

Spanish has standardized pronunciation and half a billion native speakers. And I already speak it, so it's a convenient choice for me. :)
