I thought you would be like 14 from some of your posts


I even turn 19 in a week, mentally I am that as a twelve year old though. Your post made me cry, and then mom grounded me.

I'm sorry I upset you.

I do the same thing. I read it in my head as "eh" but say it as "uh". Weird.


It's not really that weird....

"Uh" is a easier and quicker to say than "Eh" (the long A sound). It's only natural in speaking that most people use "uh" due to its speed and ease of use.

The sound "uh" (the schwa) is commonly used by most English speakers (especially in North America) for ANY unstressed vowel sounds. For example:

University 5 syllables and 5 vowel sounds. What does it really sound like when a native speaker of English in North America says this?

It sounds like -> YOO-nuh-VER-suh-TEe with the "tee) tapering off and a lowering of the voice (unless it's a question that doesn't begin with a wh- word). The two unstressed syllables "nuh" and "suh" become schwas in order to ease the pronunciation and to make speech faster. You don't even notice that you do this, but you do, as most native speakers of English will (as I do).

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
