Did you really expect not a nerd?

One of them finally admitted to me that they have been mispronouncing supposedly Italian words incorrectly, all along.

Yes, We're Willfully Ignorant!


Okay, so now I've looked into this a little, and it appears that the practice of leaving off (or just barely pronouncing) the last vowel of those words is an Italian-American practice, and is commonly heard in the New York/New Jersey area.

As for me, I've said moot-suh-rel' and ri-goht' for so long now that it would take sustained, conscious effort and much wincing and discomfort for me to pronounce those words the way that you, most English speakers, and the dictionary do. And I just don't feel like it. So there. ;)

This is a great day for English speakers all over the world. Rejoice!

Change can start with just one person. Hopefully CJ will get the ball rolling by sending an article in to the monthly newsletter, "Mangling Food-related Words Today," and others will sit up and listen.

Hear our cry, Italian-Americans! Throw off the yoke of mush-mouthiness! Embrace the English language and eliminate the horrid "practice" of speaking in "Italish."

The one good thing you guys do is cook; now it's time to improve further.

Thank you.

My account for World of Warcraft has been inactive now for about three weeks. My character is still in a guild - http://www.1greborn.com. For those that don't know, a guild is a collection of players that can share a similar character appearance and have their own special titles and chat channel in-game.

I didn't talk much in my guild, or in their message boards, until recently after stopping playing. So why am I now posting there?

Apparently there are some religious Christian yahoos in my guild. There's a message board at the site for Politics/Philosophy/Religion discussions, and I had previously ignored it. Boy, there's a lot of good stuff in it.

Now I'm needling those that are mind-controlled by ancient traditions. It's pretty entertaining. There's also a prototypical GOP guy freaking about about the Democrats being elected yesterday.

I'm thinking about telling these guys that I'm gay, just to gauge reactions (and to see if they kick me from my guild). I imagine I would go from being "a good priest" to being "a worthless player who hardly ever participated in guild functions, and was removed for that reason."

We shall see.

since I normally have nonsense posts, I would be remiss if I didn't have something funny in this post. So here's you go, this was to be part of a full-length feature which never panned out:

What the hell:

I want everyone who reads this, that wants to, to ask me 3 questions, no more no less. Ask me anything you want and I will answer as honestly and completely as I can.
