number 3, ya smart ass :P


Well, excuse me. I wasn't raised in Hicktown, USA where they use "right" as an adverb.

I bet you also say "I'm doing good" when someone asks, "How are you?"

This is kind of related, but when people can't pronounce "th" and replace it with a "ff" sound. I absolutely HATE being called "Cafferine" or "Caffy".

Someone I know got a puppy recently. She keeps calling it a pug, but it isn't a fucking pug and it bugs me :lol: if you knew the first thing about pugs you'd take one look at the puppy and see that its face isn't 'squished' at all, when pugs have very squished faces.
It is an adorable puppy none the less :lol:

hearing ceadagh pronounce the letter h for the first time completely freaked me out, it just sounds wrong! having him spell my name is a nightmare. it's aytch :mad:

No! it's just pointless if there's no "hhh" sound, then it's just "a" with a "tch" after it for no reason. :runaround:

Yeah H is 'haytch'


And the one American pronunciation that bugs me is 'herbs'. There's a H in that word, it's not 'erbs'

One of my favourite musicians feels so strongly about the "h" issue that he made it his Twitter handle :P

What even are power rangers???? We're the same age so I should know but I don't.

When I was in kindergarten, I had a crush on a girl. She came over to my house and I told her I'd buy her a pink power ranger someday.

 

I'm judging myself for this but "pink power ranger" sounds so dirty in this context  :ninja:

I really, really don't like people who worship medical field careers. Like, I know we just talked about this a couple pages back, but I had to cover this groundbreaking ceremony for a college's new health and sciences building yesterday and honestly I wanted to vomit. The way they glorify these people, and act like health care is literally the only viable career path on the entire planet, is ridiculous. They really come off as pretentious.

 

Yes, it's a growing field, but it's a terrible business, when you consider how many people (like my family) never go to a doctor because they can't afford the astronomical prices, even with health insurance. I don't think people who go into health care are as "noble" as everyone likes to portray them as, just sayin'.

And this is why the NHS is a brilliant thing that needs to be everywhere, and David Cameron is an absolute fucking cunt for wanting to destroy it.
