Ok so apparently I have a knack for completely mispronouncing names wrong. Im guessing some of you do to, but it happens to me all the time mostly because I kind of make more vids on here then others. Recently, I found out that I have long been pronouncing Subutai's name completely wrong..... Its actually pronounced "Soo-bow-tie" when I was pronouncing it like "Suh-boo-tie"

Seeing as how all of you crazy people seem to choose crazy as names rather then normal sh** like IMABENCH, ive decided to do a bit of a public service announcement.....

Heres how it works: You post your name, and then you type out how to pronounce it

Example: Imabench = Im-A-Bench

So if you have an awkward name that could be mispronounced, please enlighten everyone how to pronounce it so I can stop making an idiot out of myself <3

If you mispronounce names wrong doesn't that mean you pronounce them right? Sorry, I just had to say that. I understand what you mean. How would you pronounce LAQUAINE? (It is an acronym, but it has a pronunciation like NASA does).

Sorry I misread, I'll type out the pronunciation. It's pronounced La-Kway-N.

Stephen Hawkins used to have trouble pronouncing my name... lol While my name is actually just an acronym for a TV show I like, he made it seem so hard to pro-nounce in our live debate, he had to spell it out each time... I thought he was trolling.

Mine is probably easy
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

1227 is also the alternate for "1337" or "leet" (Elite).

So I'm not sure what you mean exactly, but 12 27 is elite like a spartan warrior. And I'm sure Spartan warrior is the first thing people think of when they see my profile pic.
