Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and The Challenge Discussion

FWIW my current thought is Ben and Ballard. Would go Luck and Ballard, but would rather have the higher variance of not starting a single QB/RB duo. But guaranteed it'll come down to the last minute. Tough one.

The Colts can clinch a playoff birth with a win and Ballard is coming off a good-looking 100 yard game. Luck has been asked to throw the ball over 35 times in almost ever game this year. Cincy is playing really well right now and can get after Ben.

Ballard is a lock but Luck/rape is closer.

I just stuffed my face for 2 hours at an all-you-can-eat Argentinean grill. I would have stopped eating, but they kept complimenting my gluttony. "Excellent choice with the ribs sir." "steak and sausage? Very good sir."

Yeah, I don't think the high-variance concern outweighs the fact that Luck is facing a much worse team that seems to have quit on the season.

(in before Hali and Houston combine for 5 sacks on Sunday)

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and The Challenge Discussion

hard g is strictly better than soft g for gif just due to complete lack of ambiguity. you hear "gif[t]" and you instantly understand .gif. soft 'g' "gif" takes context and interpretation, especially if you're conversing with someone less interweb-fluent.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and The Challenge Discussion

this is 2012 bro. gangnam style was a huge radio hit. lol at gifs being something you don't discuss "in public".

would assume ppl are mostly talking about saying 'oot' mentally tho.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and The Challenge Discussion

arguments about phonics don't carry much weight to me when the guy who created it says it's a j sound. there are all sorts of names with uncommon pronunciations


also clark how about you unban roman debeers. i'm shooting you a pm later since you continue to ignore my posts on the matter

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and The Challenge Discussion

who cares what some old dude says about how "gif" is pronounced. if you truly love your work, you set it free (to be pronounced in the most precise way possible).

OOT is definitely oh-oh-tee and POG is definitely pog. Probably the only forum I don't pronounce the letters for. fanmail is right for two of three things.
