    Well, whoever wrote that pronunciation suffered from "seseo", which is pronouncing c and z as a s. It is NOT the correct pronunciation, although is absolutely commonplace in South American and South Spanish dialects.

    Z has a proper sound that is quite different from s so it should be "bahn-zo". But with an even softer z sound that the usual in English, which is closer to s than to Spanish z. It's hard to explain, but certainly those saying "Bone-so" are suffering from seseo. Specially if the guy is supposed to be from Madrid. We are unable to pronounce d's at the end of a word (such as in: Madrid), but we certainly can pronounce a z properly. Did Not Do The Research.

    Thanks, I'll create a new thread for my guide.

    I guess I'll find out just how interesting these debates are, my first one is tomorrow.

    I don't mean to pester you, but I was reading through my reviewing guide that I typed up, and realized that I could improve so much on it. So, I did. It's been over a month since it have been last posted in and I was wondering if I should double post and bump up the thread with the update, or just create a new thread. I could come up with an argument on both sides, so I wasn't 100% sure and thought I would ask to avoid trouble.

    What are you doing right now?

    They seem like they would be interesting books. I really don't know. We were supposed to show up on class today with the first fifty pages read of one of them, but mine hasn't been delivered yet. Of course, the first book, is the only book I don't have right now. It's supposed to come tomorrow, which means I have 150+ pages to read tomorrow if I want to catch up. Plus there's a 3-4 page essay due every thursday where we get into groups and debate with each other on our ideas. Welcome to college, yay me!

    Hey there! College is going okay, I had a couple monster assignments the first couple of days, but I think that was just to get us to work harder. My brother and I get off at the same time, but I start an hour later, so we share a ride. I just sit in a waiting area for that time, so that's my designated free time that will never change. I think my quarter ends before Christmas break, so that's a good thing. What's not so good is that we start our novel readings tomorrow, and as my luck would have it, I only have 8/13 books I'm supposed to get. Of course the first book hasn't arrived yet, I'll get that on Tuesday, so I'll be busy reading in a desperate attempt to catch up.

    How's life for you? Are you in college?

    I will never forget the sound Knubbler made when Toki got around to punching him.

    How to describe it, I may never know, but I'll never forget it.

    I have a mighty need for that RD and also for that Spitfire, meanwhile.

    Oh god tell me about it. I was a wicked mechanical pencil thief in my day. Only .5s though, none of that .7 nonsense. Preferably with a blue clip.

    Pens are such fantastic tools, and it's a shame to see that only high profile financial executives and doctors own them. But fountain pens don't need to be super expensive. I got this really nice TWSBI 540, bold nib, real nice work. And I only spent like 40 bucks. Which, given how long I've had it, has more then paid for itself.

    But hey, work with what'cha got, you know? No reason to go all nuts if you've got something that's working for you. :)
