That right there is BS on wheel of fortunes part.

They never seem to take in account that people have different pronunciation of things.

I'd have given him Achilles. Close enough, man.

I bet he knew how to pronounce it, but not spell it. When he saw it, he couldn't read it because he didn't know what the letters spelled!.

In this day and age, who hasn't heard of an Achilles tendon!

Re: Worlds Worst Wheel Of Fortune Player...


btw..... The guy was the big winner, & went to the final puzzle! Had a tough draw though, & missed out. Still won about 11,500, which is low by "Wheel" standards.

The puzzle " The worlds fastest man would have won him about 30k, maybe more. It was also a vacation in the Caribbean!

Sure I guess it's perfectly reasonable to think that a normal person is going to know how to pronounce a word that only doctors and historians are going to be using on a regular basis.

I'm being sarcastic by the way.

From what I'm seeing these days, college doesn't necessarily mean much.

The whole educational system is fvcked. The prussian model rewards mediocrity. "Straight A" students are the ones that do what they're told without question. Read and regurgitate ...

Yeah, that's pretty scary. Especially when a bunch of "dumb uneducated blue collar grunts" are commenting on how bad it is

Actually I think most normal people do know how to pronounce the word. The abnormal people are those who can't pronounce it themselves and therefore don't expect others to know how to either.

I'm not being sarcastic by the way.

So are we going to get into a spelling and pronunciation debate or are we going to remember that not everyone speaks the same dialect of english and judging and penalizing people for not speaking the same way as you is pointless?
