Except there's nothing remotely funny about that douche.

Hm.  I wonder what causes the rhythmic contractions of my diaphragm when I watch clips from his show on YouTube, then...   :hmmm:

The instinctive urge to vomit?

Maybe that's it.

Usually, though, I don't grin when dry-heaving.

If this is true, then Stewart and Colbert must have some excellent anti-emetic properties, because I've never finished puking.

That sounds unpleasant.

You know, I contemplated adding "while watching them" to the end of that sentence, but didn't because it felt wordy. :-D

So, when you watched them, some of the puke stayed inside?  And it's still there?  I stand by my earlier statement:  that sounds unpleasant.

As long as you've eaten recently, you're always full of puke that has never finished puking.

Quote from: Merriam Webster
puke
verb
English Language Learners Definition of puke (Entry 1 of 2)
informal : to empty what is in your stomach through your mouth

When I eat, I almost never begin to empty what is in my stomach through my mouth.  Therefore, it cannot be said that my puking is left unfinished:  it never started.

Gif is an acronym, for graphics interchange format. So hard G for me. Despite what the creator of the format says.

I don't know if the pronunciation of the letter in the original word is really all that relevant, otherwise, for example, laser would sound more like "lazzer." Also, NATO would be "natto," the "E" in BASE jumping would be pronounced, CAPTCHA would not have a "ch" sound, and so on.

The issue really derives from one of the various quirks of English. In words of Germanic origin, "g" stays as "game" in words that start with "ge-" and "gi-," like get and give. But in words of Latin or Greek origin, the g pronunciation changes to "j" as in "geometry" and "engine." (You can find exceptions, but they aren't common. Then, there's words like "judgment," where there's a "j" sound, even though there is no "i" or "e" after the "g.")  Anyway, because "gif" is an acronym, it isn't really either Germanic or Classical, and so we're kind of stuck.

Hey, this is a fun thread.

I knew there was a thread I forgot to post to when I returned!

Zine is pronounced like "zeen", as in short for magazine.

My middle school art teacher was big into zines. We all had to make one (and then make copies and distribute), and I did mine about a calculator. More specifically, a little red calculator with a flip-open stand that I had found somewhere and decided to keep. It was a bit of a joke for an art project, but ended up being kind of fun. I rode my bike around the neighborhood and dropped a copy of my zine into the street every so often. Some of the neighbors picked up a copy; I never heard what they thought!  :-D



And just for the record, no, I do not consider myself to be a ziney person.  :-P

Oof, do you make it a point to post on every thread? You realize you don't have to do that, right?

edit: you've got a "threads started" link in your signature....not looking good folks

Yeah, you're right. Not really sure what the objective of my post was. I guess I'm just not someone who cares about a post count or replying to everything.

I do realize that. I read the thread months ago and made a mental note to post to it if I ever started posting again. And... here I am!

Yeah, I should probably get rid of that now that I'm back, but I haven't bothered yet.  :-P
