Nam rhymes with damn.

Quote from: David Garrett Arnold
there are oceans of words aged in prayer,
against geometric lines, and cloudbeaten skies;
credulous allure—slowly captivated in hearts fair—
trees and flowers bloomed in grace upon one's eyes.

2. What if there is a rock in the middle of a road, a blind person is speeding towards it, ...they say that they can't see it.   Would you recommend him to keep speeding?

I'm surprised to see I got so many names right.

Nam rhymes with damn.

I always thought it was pronounced "asshole". :S :P

We should go posh and put an exotic emphasis on an off syllable. eh could have an "~" on the e.

I've often heard it pronounced with at least some emphasis on the "w", so that's the version I prefer. Both seem to be acceptable in spoken English.

^^^Thanks, magic. A right[1] whale breaching; possibly just for the sheer fun of it.
 1. "Right" in the sense of being easy to kill with pre-industrial harpoons and yielding a lot of oil and whalebone... sigh.

...religion is simply tribalism with a side order of philosophical wankery, and occasionally a baseball bat to smash...anyone who doesn't show...deference to the tribe's chosen totem.

I was way off on this one. All this time I thought it was boo-t-s.

The pronunciation for my name is G-Roll. I like complex and hard to pronounce names. Obviously.
