    Nah, Chincy is right

    Em-grr is the least dumb sounding one

    Shouldn't it at least be im-grr with that approach though?

    I get reading gur as grr but reading im as em just seems wrong to me.

    jj4gmv32drb8.png

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Also, the HTML tag for images is <img>. So instead of imager, it's imgur.

    I started pronouncing it "im grr", but heard later on that it's supposed to be "im a ger" and tried that.
    I swear to god, my brain would not let me pronounce it any other way than "im grr". :)

    Technically it's pronounced "butt stuff."

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities.

    I pronounce imgur the way I do, I think, because it's two distinct words that I already knew how to pronounce jammed together.

    That is to say, I've been on BBCode supported forums for well over a decade now, and the img tag meant image, so I always pronounced it image in my head.

    And then I also studied history and mythology in college, so talking about like, ur-texts and ur-myths is something that I'm super used to.

    And both of these predated me really using imgur (I'm sure it was around while I was in college, but I spent a lot less time on the internet), so when I started encountering it more regularly I just split it into the two "words" that I clearly saw it as.

    I just finished listening to this week's Teenagers With Attitude, which fortunately had less talk about Rocket Power than I had feared. I should definitely be asleep right now.
    "And sometimes, more often than you would think, a giant monster sucks them into a giant bottle."
    "Also, I haven't heard the word 'beefed' since fucking Rocket Power, so nice job." oh no Rocket Power talk already
    Sports Stephen King
    "You may not have been able to tell by this intro, but this is a Power Rangers podcast." "Is it?"
    "Fuck you, I have a segue. Segues are my thing."
    "No Golden Hour, No Peace!"
    Alright, so now it's Morphactnewsnimal 2, the important thing is that this ended with the name becoming slightly more ridiculous
    "Oh God, Luke could technically do it, he could do a separate recording of him telling himself that he's not funny while he's doing the thing on the podcast." "That sounds like something I would do, so"
    Bionicles are great
    THE ECOCIDE PEARL
    "Angel Grove is a city that gets attacked by giant monsters and destroyed DAILY. How is there any time on the news cycle for this fluff piece? I don't understand."
    "Is someone going to say something about Zack's new haircut?" "I was actively trying not to."
    "Because the octopus monster..." "Is Octillery from Pokemon, I know."
    "Can we talk about Tommy's hair, and how it's bad and really bad" Zack sang this part, I didn't know how to represent that in text
    Diggy is the ship name for Dillon and Ziggy in RPM, this is FORESHADOWING
    This whole underclass living in an underground city theory is going pretty well
    "I'm counting the number of times someone kicks a Z and no one explodes."
    Fuck that Mario movie bonus episode is happening, I'm going to have to actually watch that
    "As we know, the only weaknesses octopi have are counteracted by elephants, and vice-versa."
    "Or, or, has Angel Grove Park become so large that a new republic has formed called the West Union to the west of Angel Grove within its border?"
    "Hey, remember how this episode is called 'The Power Stealer?'" I don't even know what that's about
    "He knew his friends were in jeopardy, not in like the show, Luke"
    "Jason could probably will trees to combust, Tommy could probably speedrun Chrono Trigger with his mind"
    How often has this podcast talked about continuity of consciousness when teleporting, because it seems like a weird number of times
    "He's getting a green infusion from Zordon." "That sounds so dirty." "Zordon's tonguing his butthole."
    "Now where can I hear more about Neon Genesis Evangelion?" "Oh, you can hear more about it at AudioEntropy.com."
    Oh what's each ranger's favorite season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Spoilers for Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
    -Jason: Season 5. As the leader, he relates the most to Buffy's struggles with her duties in this season.
    -Kimberly: Season 3. Her favorite character is Faith, and she gets the most screentime in season 3.
    -Trini: Season 7. She likes that it ended with the Potentials being empowered so that everyone could work together.
    -Billy: Season 4. He's all about that initiative shit.
    -Zack: Season 2. Spike is his favorite character, and he's never really as good after the second season.
    -Tommy: Season 6. It had a lot of flaws, but he appreciates what it was trying to do. Once More With Feeling made him cry.
    Prince Dexter is turned into a frog
    "THERE'S A DINO CHARGE, AND A DINO SUPER CHARGE, AND THEY'RE BOTH AFTER DINO THUNDER?" "Yes." "GOD!"
    "We have too many podcasts."

    Believe it or not, Matthew McConaughey's thesis (from behind a bookshelf inside a black hole) that love is the most powerful force in the universe isn't the most scientifically accurate thing Hollywood has offered us lately. It should come as no surprise that movies take a lot of liberties with astrophysics and what is possible or impossible in the realm of outer space. Like, sending up a crew of men less qualified than Donald Trump (too soon?) to blow up an asteroid? That's probably not in NASA's Plans A through "we ran out of letters" of how to stop a meteor on a collision course with Earth.

    Even in more fantastical movies like the Star Wars or Star Trek films, you just get very inadequate image in your head of how space works. Take asteroid belts, for example. It's a belt! Made of asteroids! Asteroids as far as the eye can see! You can't safely pilot your ship through them because there are just so many damn asteroids! I've had it with these motherf**king asteroids on this motherf**king belt!

    We're sorry to say that's now how the asteroid belt works at all. The average distance between bodies in the asteroid belt is 600,000 miles, which is more than double the distance between the Earth and the Moon. So traveling through the asteroid belt is less dodging asteroids like Han Solo and more, "we passed through the asteroid belt?" To dispel some more myths about how space works, Jack O'Brien and Alex Schmidt are joined by Dr. Farah Alibay, a real life scientist at JPL who gets to play with styrofoam models of planets all day and is currently working on a mission that's trying to scoop a 2o-ton boulder off an asteroid, which is as cool as it sounds.
