The english language is a piss poor, piece of shit way of communicating. It needs to be raped, murdered and set on fire before it's any use to anybody.

This is why they built scotland.  :lulz:

It needs to be raped, murdered, set on fire, and then gotten drunk via drinks served in skulls with umbrellas!

I heart Scotland all because of this forum! :D

Yes, but loving Scotland won't save you.

Actually I fully expect it will kill and/or damn me!

I could tell you how to really pronounce it (I asked a friend who speaks Ancient Greek).

But I wont.

Because I'm mean.

And my demands have not been met.

Are your demands, by any chance, "moar tentacles"?

My demands are well known to all, and shall not be repeated.

Also, I hear Ancient Greek is kinda dull.  It could just be my friend, she was never the most linguistically minded and only wanted to do the Classics for lack of anything else worthwhile, but from what I read of it, its kinda dry.

Entonces, si usted prefiere hay dos verbos que significan 'to be' en espa?±ol - "Estar" y "Ser"

¬řintente utilizar espa?±ol en lugar de otro, quiz?°?

¬řEspa?±ol-prime?

Ou pr?©f?©rez-vous le fran?ßais ?

No, it doesn't.

Because the scots haven't been able to decently mangle it yet.

He actually did pronounce it kind of fucked up, though . . . I can't remember how now, but it was different from my pronunciation, which is remarkably mundane (air-iss) - you can hear it in the Maybe Logic movie . . . it was either EE-ris or Air-ees, but I can't remember which.

Either way, it made me throw my army-boot at the tv.

Hi, I'm new around here.  Been reading for a day or so.  I suppose now that I'm not lurking anymore I should go post on that introductions thread or something.

Actually, Mourning Star, you may have been just bullshitting about how RAW pronounced Eris, but you were spot on - he did say Air-Reese, basically.  He also pronounced PD "Prinkipia Discordia."  Heard it with me own ears, I did...

But I still say "air-is" and "Prinsipia"... I loved that old man Papa Bob, but I liked my pronunciations better... and besides, I got the impression he really didn't like people thinking or saying things just cuz he did... I remember him telling me once, with a rather serious look on his face, "one should remember that 'fan' is short for 'fanatic.'"

Hey there.

Doesn't RAW tend to slur his words anyway, because of some illness or something?

I prounounce it Aer-is.  I'm pretty certain thats the correct Greek way, though I may have to check again.  Its been a while since I did that stuff.

Hi Minja! Welcome aboard!

I'm curious - how did you know Bob? Are you one of the MLA folks?
