Learning Something

weather: mostly cloudy
outside: 20.9°C
mood: happy
For everyone who said they wanted "to learn something" from me (or some variant thereof), I offer this random bit:

zoethe*'s username is pronounced "ZOH-eth"... long 'o', short 'e', soft 'th'.

It is NOT pronounced like the German poet, novelist, playwright and scientist who got a few things dead wrong, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe — ['gø tə] which is something like "GER-tuh".

It is a sight rhyme only.

I asked. =)

* Gini, law student, "increasingly radical pagan chyk" and quite an interesting read.
