it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
As someone from Arkansas, let me shed a little light on this situation. The name of both states derives from the same root word from different Siouan tribes, the Kansa tribe in Kansas and the Quapaw tribe in Arkansas. The reason they’re said differently is because Arkansas’s official pronunciation is the French pronunciation circa 1881, probably the result of Arkansas being a part of the Louisiana Purchase.
Twenty-five years and three days later, reality takes a tip from fiction and charts “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun at number one, with over 100,000 sales during it’s first week. In his 31 year long career, with 14 studio albums to his name, this is the first time he’s hit the top- and the first comedy album by ANY artist to hit #1 since 1960! Congratulations, Al!
My sincerest congrats to my hero ^-^
Falling in love with a fictional character that’s dies is like looking over at the view from a cliff and it’s really beautiful and somebody pushes you off.

Out of curiosity, could you take a moment to reblog this if you believe that demisexuality exists? I’m demisexual, and I feel like demisexuality goes really under the radar, even within the asexual community umbrella. A lot of people don’t believe that it exists, and even within the ace community, demisexuality is still questioned as being legitimate, although we share the same flag. So reblog this is if you believe it exists.
