Oh uh uh, you did not just rank The Way lower than MMMBop. But to be fair, I've never really listened to the lyrics until now.
@nyikint Thank you! I was a bit of a wild child but I've never done any of those things because they're just plain inconsiderate/rude/dickish. Ok, the passport thing is mild, but taking cabs without cash and shoplifting? That's not cool.
@Leila Q Uh, really? Because I've been to Vietnam (I have family there) and every time I've been there EVERYONE wears a helmet because it is the law to do so. They're just disguised as baseball caps, but they have a hard interior.
I...am not sure what the point of this piece is.
Ah, this is my very favorite feature! The last two sentences are stunning.
OH MY LORD THIS SNAIL BROOCH.
@martinipie VOICE OF REASON HERE
@par_parenthese I'm not saying there's a "wrong" way to pronounce GIF, I'm just saying that people's arguments aren't very valid.
@dj pomegranate I am proud to have instigated this.
Uhhh...in the world I live in, NOBODY pronounces it "giff." I had no idea so many people did! Either way, I'm okay with it.
But the argument that it's pronounced "giff" because of how "graphics" is pronounced is ridiculous because English is generally ridiculous because how do you pronounce the letter "g?" "Jee." And "generally" is actually "jenerally," so don't be up on your Pronunciation Horse when we all know English makes no sense.
