    Or were you merely observing another? Or an historic event?
    I don't know who started doing this, but when the revolution comes, they will be first against the wall.

    "A historic event." Unless you have the thickest cockney accent ever, in which case it would be "an 'istoric event."

    an rightly so you pull me up, me, an person who isn't an cockney. i don't even live an-y-where near Bow Bells!

    Historic is not pronounced at all like hotel, what the fuck are you guys on.

    are you all consciously making yourselves go HISSSSSSSStoric rather than the regular pronunciation of not enunciating the h.

    What that link shows is that both are correct, with "a historic" being more commonly used online in recent times, from what I gather about their sourcing for those charts.

    So everybody's wrong, hooray

    You can go either way safely.

    If Dan Simmons wrote an historic, well by god, I'm going to do that from now on too.

    Weird that I noticed this in an audiobook 3 days ago and looked it up then.

    I'm all about what sounds better.

    In this case, it really depends on how you pronounce historic. An 'istoric event or a historic event.

    Obviously due to accent variation either can be used. However, a solid chunk of people who live on the coast enunciate the H in words like history, yes.

    I'm putting your whole dialect against the wall when the revolution comes.

    I'm usually not huge on prescriptive grammar, but that one drives me up a wall for some reason. "An historic" just sounds retarded.

    That, and spelling "skeptic" with a "c." Even though it's technically correct. I just see "sceptic" and it makes me think "septic." Like, as in the tank. Like, as in that spelling is shit.

    "An historic" makes sense when you live in a part of the world that doesn't say "history" the way yale professors say history

    anyway it really should be a herstorical event, so male privilege and all that

    Except it... doesn't sound retarded? It sounds perfectly natural, but that is entirely dependant on accent.

  • BogartBogart Because I hate you Registered User, Moderator mod
    Many people over here drop their aitches on certain words, so "an 'istoric" rolls off the tongue more easily than "a 'istoric". It may or may not be right but it's what a lot of people say. You don't have to be a cockernee to drop your aitches. Same thing happens with other 'h' words following 'an', like 'hospital'.

    Posher accents don't run into this problem, so 'a historic' sounds fine if you aren't some filthy pleb.

    Man, sometimes I think it's a good thing my family is so dysfunctional. I feel no obligation to any of them whatsoever.

    Maybe I'm just a douche, but I would simply not tolerate anything like that. As in, I'd be comfortable just forgetting they were family.

    Although, in the past few years my relationship with my sister has been getting better. Since about the time she started dating her now husband, I guess, who I get along really well with.

    EDIT: Well, the 'no obligation' part isn't exactly true. I help my mom with whatever money I can spare for her. Although ever since she learned she can get money from me, the only time she talks to me is when she's asking for money.

    Which is kind of a blessing, actually. My mom is extraordinarily hard to get along with. She literally finds other people's concerns funny if she doesn't share them.

    Man, Thom's story sucks. I hate when partners let down their SO by not standing up for them due to not wanting to hurt feelings. which is prob what is going on with his lady.

    She's thinking she can just make everyone like each other instead of realizing she's hurting Thom for no real reason at all. The Nice Guy needs to be cut like a tumor for them and for his own good.

    You can see the logic from both sides unfortunately.

    She thinks "My partner knows I love him. I don't need to defend him to the death. I don't want to lose my friend and cause DRAMA."

    and he's thinking "She should support me. He's obviously lying and causing drama and I don't understand why she doesn't stop it. But I don't want to tell her STOP TALKING TO HIM because that's what dicks do."

    Needs. More. Communicado.

    Part of the problem is women (and dudes too to a lesser extent, I think) are socialized to "get along" and "go with the flow" of situations. It's hard to know when you're raising a valid point amidst all the feelings of guilt over causing a ruckus.

    oh yeah, update on my sister

    She showed up eventually at like 10 pm, and then left with her friend. Gave me 10 bucks for gas money.

    I get in the car and realize the reason she gave me gas money is because the tank is completely empty, like down to the warning light. And since she only gave me 10 bucks in cash, and I spent what cash I had at the casino, I had to go the gas station to put 3 gallons in the tank before finally getting to my friend's house, where we were able to hang out like 3 hours and happily my friend bought me tacos.

    So on the one hand, jesus fucking christ sis. On the other hand, mmmm free tacos.
