Hey Ghouck...

Pretty much all of us pronounce your screen name as "Gook".
I always have and still do.
We're not being racist.  We're just pronouncing it like we see it.
It's essentially "Ghoul" with a "ck" on the end of it instead of an "L".
How else did you think we'd pronounce it?

I knew it was G. Houck because you told me so awhile back.
But most everyone else didn't know that.

Same here. Pronounced it "gook" from the beginning, like "goon" with a K. Still do in spite of knowing for a while that it's G. Houck. No offense, G.H., but as a comical nickname, it kind of suits you.

Actually, It's G HOUCK, my first initial (G) and my last name (Houck). It sounds like Gee-How-k (Now I just have to get Rev to SPELL it right. You'd think a bartender could spell better than that  BounceGiggle )



Sometimes I sample my own inventory.   Drink

In all seriousness, I am glad this thread defused.  I got here late and missed most of the fireworks. 

It's not unusual for people who love to debate to refuse to quit even when it's clear the argument isn't going anywhere.  I find that if a debate with a single individual goes on for more than two exchanges of posts, the other person usually has their mind made up on the issue and nothing I can say is going to change it.  At that point, no matter how right I think I am, I find it's best to stop responding; continuing to debate is pointless, I'm not going to change someone's mind.   

Hopefully people can remember to always make it clear that they're arguing against the other person's OPINION, not attacking the other person directly.  But in the heat of argument it's very likely that personal attacks will occur, or that people will interpret a difference in opinion as a personal attack.  You have to have a thick skin if you're going to get into these types of highly divisive debates.

I handled myself fine, and have no love for debate.  Read all exchanges and then reconsider whether or not there was a genuine debate.  Seemed to me Ghouck was arguing with himself.  My mistake was trying to point this out, though once again I get branded with an argument that wasn't mine and one that I never took up, and get negative shot for no good reason.   Lookingup  I am disappointed in Ghouck, but have no right to expect anything more from him, like civility.

Fine, I will kill this thread so that the argument here will not continue.  I had also hoped that it was over, but it seems not.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
