    Did you guys know that Nimrod is actually a name. How should someone feel if they came in here and their name was Nimrod and they saw that?

    I say, change it to "THIS IS WHERE YOU ASK FOR HELP, FREAKS."

    or

    "THIS IS WHERE YOU ASK FOR HELP, LOSERS."

    or

    "THIS IS WHERE YOU ASK FOR HELP, rEt.aR.ds."

    It was DU, and if someone named Nimrod complains, I'm sure they'll take it down NOT

    My only response to a person named nimrod would be an endless post of " :lol: ".

    Please tell me you don’t actually know any one with that name?

    Since the forum description says it in plural, I believe we can safely say that definition no 2 was the one DU meant.

    Yes I do, well not really well, but I've met him. He's not a hunter though, and his name is pronounced Nim(as in him, just the "H" is an "N")-rod(rawed, but the "R" is pronounced "rrrrrrrrr" which many english people can't pronounce, but it sounds like the "R" in "Ratamhata" from Sepultura for those of you who know them. The most popuar example of that type of "R" that I can think of now is Eddie Guerero in WWE (not like I whatch that crap) in his song when it goes like "Viva la Rassa").

    Please tell me you don’t actually know anyone named Jacob Freak.

    What's an Uffizi? Is that like a Xhosa or Zulu word for fizzy?

    "Uffizi drink" (again with the "rrrrrrr-R")

    There are many Xhosa words that just have an "U" or an "I" thrown in as a prefix like "ipensile" pencil and "urula" ruler, or "irhaba" eraser, also known as a rubber. I used to do Xhosa in primary school, and damn did I HATE it.

    Uffizi is one of the worlds largest art museums. It has everything from statues from ancient greece to renaissance art by Da Vinci, Rafael and Michelangelo.

    Just think some day you might be able to call him Mr. Freak.

    His name brings a literal sence to the phrase “You’re a Freakâ€￾.
