I do think Zontik should have 825
827. Your real name is George, but you start to spell and write it another way...
828: You debate with someone on how to pronounce DromEd.
829: You debate with someone on how to pronounce Jorge.
830. Your girlfriend's father is called Georges and you hate him without knowing if it's due to something else than what his name inspires you.
831. You start to think about giving your frame door a time higher than the hole to prevent people from entering your room all day long.
832. You barely use the great computer you bought 2 weeks ago because DromEd doesn't work properly on it.

833. Your beta testers hear strange, spooky noises while testing your mission, although you never placed such.
834. You are happy about Obama new president 'cause it means the end of eight years of Jorge W.Bush
835. You often think and act out "Discover, Thwarted" when frustrated.
836. You double-check every square inch of your mission so often that Garrett became addicted to the speed potion you use to hover around the level faster, and now he won't move without it anymore.
837. The monster in your nightmare suddenly becomes invincible to your attacks, and you wonder if it has contracted the DeathStage 12 error.
Truly, happened to me the other night.
Isn't it pronounced "Ye-org-ee"?
Only if you can't pronounce the letter J.
And I think the E is meant to be silent. Only babies should pronounce every e at the end of a word as "ee".
So I pronounce it "Jorg", where the J is from, say, Jug, and the org is from Borg.
I've often wondered why people from some countries have trouble with certain sounds. Is it conditioning (i.e. are some people simply brought up to pronounce J as Y), or do people from some countries inherit some genetic trait that affects their vocal chords?
I was thinking along the line of the Swedish Chef BORK BORK BORK!
Absolutely no one gets my jokes--I suck

I pronounce it like "George".
I pronounce it "Georg", like "George" but with a hard g at the end. Except I'm sure that's not the proper pronunciation.
....not directed at anyone in particular.....just sayin'...that's...um...how I pronounce it......I'll go now...
There's a way to avoid the problem, though ... basically learn how to pronounce every possible phoneme the mouth can possibly create, and how it's used in every major world language. There's a chart for that called the the International Phonetic Alphabet.

In German(y) we speak J as Y and one might consider our phonetics-letter-accordance as quite inexact in general although Mark Twain for instance thought English was worse. Getting used to unknown kinds of phonems is a little hard but most Germans suffer rather from the th sound than from dj. Oh, and Arabic is worse, especially for native English speakers.Originally Posted by R SoulThat's something which popped up in my head a few weeks ago. The texture is written Jorge, isn't it? Jorge de Burgos (inspired by Jorge Luis Borges, the author from...erm... Argentina?) is the bad guy in The Name of the Rose, a film that's supposed to have inspired LGS. Now, Jorge is blind and this texture is sort of a blind blot in the Thief world, isn't it?Originally Posted by Nameless Voice
I have the idea that one of the developers specifically said that it was named after a character in The Name of the Rose.
Now, back to the Clues!
838. You have a vivid dream set in a strange location, and when you wake up, you immediately draw a map and begin to turn it into an FM
I'm doing it right now
