what the fuck is that about? also 'pecific'....it's pronounced specific thank you very much.
people actually say skellington instead of skeleton i don't understand why.
There's a park near where I lived as a kid called Skellington Park - which people called Skeleton Park. How's that?
retarded but in reverse.
I felt reverse retarded when I saw the official sign for the first time about 6 years after I first went there and found out that it wasn't called Skeleton Park.
Lesson: Always enter parks via the official entrance. And not through rape alleys.
yes you know that for future reference at least. what kind of park was this? when i think park, i think nice place with dogs, small children, loved up couples and swings...
This was syringes, gang warfare, cannabis, an awful lot of concrete, knives, coarse language, adult situations and a really cool adventure playground with a pirate castle - also used as a venue for all of the above.
well the pirate castle bit anyway...i think someone should build adult play areas...damn those signs that say age 12 and under only.
Yeah, 'cept it was way bigger, which is what made it so good for kids playing and teenagers up to no good at the same time. And on recollection, it was more a fort than a ship. Or no - a bunker! So many bones got broke on that thing, it was great.
super-fun. i am going to go find a park to play in tommorow i think...a bunker would be amazing re-enact WW2 and stuff, with dirty needles as weapons and the such-like.
surely H should be heard in its own word?!
admit it and move on
HAITCH HAITCH HAITCH :(
but she punches me if i ever correct her over anything, so i dont anymore.
seem to say 'tooooooooooooooooooooooth' instead of 'tooth', and 'darnce' instead of 'dance'.
Etymologically speaking, there is a world of difference between the long 'a' in dance that you're actually hearing and 'ar' which pirates use.
But you're like an ignant foreigner, so I'll let you off, this time.
WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG.
oh wait, that's right. hm.
is people who say:
gordon ramsey does it and it makes me want to die because i usually quite like him.
sentences with 'but', mainly glaswegians
is = one person/object.
The one that annoys me the most is people confusing 'less' and 'fewer'. I correct my friends (in an extremely patronising manner) all the time. Surprisingly, I'm not very popular.
who got the '10 items or less' queues changed to '10 items or fewer'?
I refuse to queue if it says '10 items or less'.
and i use words that are "very experienced" in their words. i guess they mean "more than two syllables"
Never heard anyone seriously say "skellington" though.
many four year olds go on DiS.
not talking about the use of 'skellington' or 'pecific' by 4 year olds...the skellington one i just wondered if people knew the origins of?
I think as kids people learn how to pronounce words incorrectly and it just sticks cos no one corrects them. Maybe? Ask Freud.
i guess so....but it's quite far off skeleton spelling wise too. oh and i asked Freud he said something about you wanting to sleep with your mum :s
is done through listening. Rendering the spelling insignificant.
you're right...but someone wrote it down at some stage spelling it this way.
If someone wrote it as 'skellington' it will be because they learnt to write after learning to speak and worked out the spelling from the way it sounded. Perhaps?
used to say 'pecific', and we used to rip the piss out of her. Every single practice exam question - "could you be more pecific please". Oh how we laughed.
And she was still manifestly unable to change her ways despite this. I seriously don't get why not. Its not like she said 'poon' or 'panish'. As far as I remember.
What was my point? Er. She was an idiot.
it sounds like it might be. 'panish' sounds like penis, doesnt it?
if said in a borat type voice it might have some comedy value
really scraping the barrel there though.
'though' sounds like blow, doesnt it? like blow job?
so base. i'm dissapointed in you...that is possibly one of the most tenuous and weak link/attempt at a joke EVER.
'joke' - like poke, isnt it?
(ummm.. i think this is diminishing returns now..)
... as in pokemon! i win! :D
i shouldnt have given up. :(
you should. you had to let me win anyway...it's called being a gentleman...chivalry and all that
is about letting girls win?
that's so unfair. i only signed up because i thought it was about wearing armour and going to spectacular jousts :(
that too also castles and dragons of course. i wish i were a knight...
lets go build our own castle like this and joust!
chivalry, remember ;)
does actually look amazing.
knights > pirates. FACT.
amazing and shhhh but i agree on the knights >pirates thing too.
(i cant believe everyone didnt think of that before)
i could be a knight if i wanted. thanks ImageChange, i like chivalry! ;) soooo when are we constructing the castle then?
we totally need it to be purple. :D
that one even has an EXTRA HIGH turret in the middle. for..umm.. feasting and dancing that weird dance that medieval people do!
yes! this is the best idea i've had all day. purple castles rock....yeah we can feast, dance and stuff...party like it's 1499! :D *highfives*
feasting and dancing is the only thing to do after a hard day fighting mythical creatures!
In a darkened banquet hall with loads of candles, and coats of arms all over the walls!
(im totally getting into this idea)
are so right there mister, it sounds so much fun. i want a castle of my own now so i can hold grand banquets and regale people with tales of how i slew the dragon. :)
We get swords too!
blow face. my pissispointing at you...shat is bottomley bum of most sensous wank leaks/arsetrench at a poke ever
*ABANDON ALL CLAIMS ON HUMANITY*
great...shat hehe. and what is humanity anyway?
actually. Any normative classification of humanity turns into an exercise in body-fascism.
exactly...surely true humanity is dictated by the choices we make as individuals as we are all human. but then we have a tendancy to act in certain ways which are generalised and are as such percieved as humane characteristics...hmmmm
used to say "futfa" instead of "wotsit". for the crisps. i still call them that. it confuses people.
imagine that it does...futfa...lol.
several people I knew at school who said 'squerl' instead of 'squirrel'
is people calling espresso coffee as 'EXPRESSO'.
in my head (which is approximately 14 times an hour) I pronounce it 'monpo' as if I was French and you were my skin.
that makes total sense now.
Marshmellows? Try marshmallow!
where it is a marshmellow world. i love that song.
a Wonderful World?
Mmmm idealist tendencies,
say icining instead of icing
Cuttlery instead of cutlery
pants instead of trousers
"put your p.i.n. number in"
i saw a sign at the petrol station stuck onto every pump the other day that said "american expres not excepted"
i'm very anal about stuff like this and regularly come across as a patronising twat correcting grammer and whatnot.
people would get confused. I personally don't carry pins with me, and why should I be jabbing it into an ATM machine?
it should say PIN. do you carry round upper case pins?
and I just end up staring blankly at the ATM machine's screen.
it is, you just spell it ginormous
'I don't correct people's grammar to be popular you know'
