Swearengen cockSUCKER! Ace. I'll watch it for sure if he's in it going OTT. I see Macauley Culkin also shows up.

Who is Swearengen cockSUCKER? :'S

But good, do, it's good. It's like Dirty Sexy Money meets The Bible on Codeine.

Don't bother getting into it. It's tanking in the ratings in the US, so the network moved it to Saturday night (kiss of death) and it's on the verge of being cancelled, if it hasn't already. We had started taping the episodes and watched the pilot, but once we heard it would most likely be canned, we deleted all the other episodes we'd taped without bothering to watch them.

Aye, heard (well, read) about that. I'm not too fussed really, I'm happier with a good story without an end than a shit one with.

Real shame it tanked though.

We say: PhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhoneticPhonetic

With the Phonetic being like the start of 'she'.

So, the former. :)

Just to piss Peter off, but only because he's wrong, it's the latter.

Hmmm. I thought this was resolved but now it's all up in the air again.

Make your case. Why should I trust you, you being Swiss and all?

How do you pronounce 'school' and 'scheme'?

Schadenfreude, schmuck, etc... ?

The 'sk' pronunciation was invented by the American Noah Webster:
The great authority of Webster was sufficient to establish the American pronunciation of schedule. In England the sch is always given the soft sound, but Webster decided for the hard sound, as in scheme. The variance persists to this day.

Not sure starting your examples with a German word is the perfect riposte, but I don't wish to take sides yet. I am with Xen if I'm with anyone.

It was first in the list of 'sch' words I found.


School is a dutch word.

Actually, I think 'schmuck' may be German too. Jewellery or summat.
