You don't have to say it out loud, you can just think about how you would pronounce it. I pronounce tuq like duke, even though I know it's wrong.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

When I was younger I'd pretty routinely say a word completely wrong because I had only read it in a book or something. 'Super+fluous' for example. Not sure how something is pronounced and reading don't cross for somebody. Probably just weird.

If you were going to the Rio regularly I could see staying at Gold Coast or Palms (or Palms Place or whatever it's called). Easy in/out and a short walk. Guessing Rio jacks their rates way up for the WSOP but I stayed at Gold Coast one year during it for like $50/night.
Oh, yeah, I stayed at Bill's because it was $40/night and it IS close to a ton of stuff. Not close enough to the Rio, apparently-- I'm just saying, I'm a guy who likes to walk places, and that walk was unbearable. It's only like a mile.

Do you understand how either reading or thinking works?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

I only need to know how to pronounce something if I speak it out loud.
Who cares how you pronounce nhlnut? or cwisemvpwhatever? it's just a symbol.
I never actually speak a posters name, so why even think how to pronounce it?

Do you not silently pronounce every word you read? If so you are the only unique person in recorded history

Of course not. Only if it's dense material that I'm having trouble figuring out.

All these crazy mystical symbols you apparently just plod through correspond to, you know, actual sounds.

Nhl, I don't mean moving your mouth or anything

I just mean you hear it in your head


Wait, when you think, do you not think in language?

ScarJo has GOAT boobs but her winning Ms. OOT 2012 would be one of the biggest travesties on 2+2, and that is saying a lot.

I'd rank the admins allowing non-mod ClarkNasty to ban Roman DeBeers higher
