How do you pronounce your user name?
« on: May 11, 2014, 12:51:29 PM »
Simple question.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Nam rhymes with damn.

I don't presuppose a god. I presuppose a delusion of something that doesn't exist based off the lack of evidence for it.

Eh!
some skepisms,
1. "I have not seen God. I have felt the invisible presence"
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.

Organized religion is simply tribalism with a side order of philosophical wankery, and occasionally a baseball bat to smash the kneecaps of anyone who doesn't show proper 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.
