No, I pronounce it as 2 syllables.

Also back on topic a bit, it seems that men continue to be the problem here:

brug I used to say oregano like Marge for fun but it's gotten to the point that this is how I usually say it now for real, +/- "what the hell?" about 1/3 of the time. And I can't see a gym without calling it a gyme.

Unfortunately I'm surrounded by young people who have only seen like 2 Simpsons episodes and don't understand anything I say. :sadcheer:

my wife shows her students (7th grade) The Raven from The Simpsons every year and I'm pretty sure she's the only one who enjoys it, the kids are only vaguely aware of the simpsons existing

Your wife is doing the Lord's work. :mason:

That's probably my favorite Treehouse of Horror bit, in part because Poe is one of my favorite poets and I also can't see his name without hearing Dr. Nick in my head:

Ty was saying that the video game people are dealing with the "omg video games make kids shoot up schools!" shit yet again, and like I said to him, the more obvious it becomes that guns are the problem and the more unavoidable that very obvious conclusion is, the more these disingenuous shitheels will try to cling to any other possible explanation, no matter how thoroughly it's been debunked.

Video games, bullying, girls being mean and not just saying yes to appease boys, movies, parenting, Common Core math, doors, backpacks, Snapchat, anything. Just not my precious, precious guns.

Anyway, it's cool that Trayvon Martin was a thug who got what was coming to him and deserved to die, but another teen who walks around his school shooting people while laughing about it and who yells, "Surprise!" as he's pulling the trigger --- let's slow down and understand where this poor victimized child is coming from!!!!!!!!!!!1

Shocked to learn the father is an asshole:

"My son, to me, is not a criminal, he's a victim," he said. "The kid didn't own guns. I owned guns."

[...]

"He pulled the trigger but he is not this person," he said. "It is like we see in the movies when someone gets into his body and does things that are not done. It's not possible in one day for the child to have changed so much."

He said that after the teen had been taken into custody, he and his wife were allowed to visit him for 15 to 20 minutes.

"I saw the child. I didn't see a child who is a murderer. A pure child, a child who was ashamed to look me in the face," his father said. "He was thinking of his sisters, how his sisters will be able to get about. He said he loves me. He told his mother he loves her, and he will try to be strong to help us cope."

He said his son told him he had acted on his own and had spared "the kids who were the good kids so they can tell his story."

I mean, he murdered a bunch of people, but he spared the good kids so they could tell his story. What more do you want, people?!

Yes, but also you are wrong.

Also I say basil like Basil Fawlty and not like bay-sil, and it is an argument with Ty that I will take to the grave. After I kill him for trying to correct me on it so many times when he's the one who's wrong.

Fuck these horrible poor excuses for human beings.

This is how its pronounced in the UK.

The way I say it or the way these weirdos say it?
10
Does anyone even pronounce that word with a long "i"?

I've never heard anyone pronounce it without a long i.
Really?
Rhymes with "despite"?
I've never heard that.

Yes.

I could swear I've never heard it pronounced the way you guys are saying you say it. Weird.

Wassn't sure where to put this and didn't want to start a new thread for it:

lol if this were to ever happen to me, because I do speak Spanish in public, I would be glad to switch to Russian.

Fuck CBP and fuck ICE and fuck everyone who thinks this is okay.

Oh look, more toxic masculinity:

One of Pagourtzis' classmates who died in the attack, Shana Fisher, "had 4 months of problems from this boy," her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, wrote in a private message to the Los Angeles Times on Facebook. "He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no."

Pagourtzis continued to get more aggressive and she finally stood up to him and embarrassed him in class, Rodriguez said. "A week later he opens fire on everyone he didn't like," she wrote. "Shana being the first one." Rodriguez didn't say how she knew her daughter was the first victim.

The gunman repeatedly taunted students during the attack, according to another harrowing account posted to Facebook by one survivor's mother.

After scrambling to escape the shooter's blasts in the art room, Isabella Van Ness, covered in dust from rounds hitting her classroom walls, could hear the shooter in a next-door classroom yelling "Woo hoo!" while shooting, according to her mother, Deedra Van Ness.

"The gunman then comes back into their room and they hear him saying....are you dead? Then more shots are fired," Deedra Van Ness wrote. "By this time, cell phones all over the classroom are ringing and he's taunting the kids in the closet asking them....do you think it's for you? do you want to come answer it? Then he proceeds to fire more bullets into the closet and tries to get in."

Can someone please explain to me how men who have problems getting laid would suddenly do much better if society "promoted" monogamy (because it apparently doesn't right now even though millions of people literally just watched a fucking wedding on TV)?

eta no seriously, where do these people get the fucking idea that society doesn't promote marriage? Tax breaks, legal benefits, social status, endless shitty remarks about single moms and fatherless children, ...

The real problem is that we now have fewer pressures to accept and stay with shitty men. Just because we don't want shitty men doesn't mean we don't want monogamy, and promoting marriage isn't going to make shitty men seem more appealing. Like, "Hmm, I know you don't want to sleep with this dumbass, but what if I told you that you had the chance of being legally bound to him for life? Doesn't that sound better?". Jesus fucking christ, what is it with the brain worms lately?

He's just telling a lot of young white males what they already believe but with an air of authority.

"Hierarchies are good and ancient and mystical, and the natural order places you at the top. People who disagree are trying to destroy everything, and all of the bad things that happen are because of those people."

Anyway, my favorite bit is how he's all about traditional Christian families and this and that and the other thing and women staying at home and having babies while also being literally obsessed with Marxism and Soviet shit... even though it's our crappy late capitalist economy that's directly undermining the ability of people to stick to that traditional family structure. Like every single obstacle standing between me and having a family and being near the rest of my relatives has been put into place by our furthest-from-fucking-Marxist economic system. Any effects of culture and cultural expectations pale in comparison to the fact that I cannot fucking afford to live the way someone like Peterson thinks I should be living.

Yes, but did you know he's a clinical psychologist? A clinical psychologist can't be wrong about stuff. Also Ben Shapiro went to Harvard, and Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon.

(protip if you want to trigger me, talk about the lobsters and serotonin)

eta reactionary is just the right word. The things he doesn't like are the fault of modern neo-Marxists and feminists and the sexual revolution, and the things he does like are actually the natural ordained way things are supposed to be because of biology and God.

Peterson is such a jackass.

Most of his shit is just word vomit, which is hilarious to me because ever since I was a teenager, I've been hearing people make fun of postmodernism as being a bunch of word vomit. But here's this jackass decrying insidious ((((cultural Marxism)))) and postmodernism and Derrida and all this shit while also producing massive word salads of questionable interpretations that read like really poorly done Rorschach tests.

But what would I know? I'm a chaos dragon fighting against the natural order of male dominance, and that will lead to the complete destruction of Western Civilization.

also lol:

I saw a car decal yesterday that said "I love guns and coffee" with the Starbucks logo mermaid holding a pistol in each hand

Guns are just tools and they're very useful which is why this is ~*~*extremely normal*~*~ behavior.

Turns out pigs can learn.

Not well enough. I mean, the only thing that crosses their tiny minds is attack/arrest vs ignore. They could've, oh, I don't know, walked up to the guy and said, "Hey, man, can you get off the steps?" like normal fucking humans.

Lol this shit is beyond parody.

a couple of dickectomies might solve a few problems tbh

Anyway, the Las Vegas shooter was a FEMA camp "they're coming to take our guns" nutter, apparently:

My first introduction to Peterson was a video clip where he said that there's something wrong with any woman who's over 30 and not prioritizing family over career, so I am extremely fucking shocked to learn that this virulent anti-Marxist believes in forced redistribution of sex.
