DAMN STRAIGHT ALASKAN NINJA!

Why do people spell these guys names like this so much? In every book/reliable website I've ever read, they were spelled "Gandhi" and "Genghis." Not this "Ghandi" and "Ghengis" none-sense.

So why do you guys who spell it like the title spell it that way?

I would like to know this too.

People seem to spell everything wrong. It's stupid, and I wish they would spell it right. I'm glad you're finally standing up for this. Cudos.

Mahatma means "Holy Father" or something like that. It's his title, not his name.


"Great Soul"

Gandhi is often referred to as Mahatma Gandhi ([məɦaːt̪maː]; Sanskrit: महात्मा mahātmā or "Great Soul", an honorific first applied to him by Rabindranath Tagore

EDIT: Beaten to it.

People misspell my name all the freaking time. They always leave out the damn "g". I'm gonna kill all you fools who forget the "g".

Where is ghengisghandi when you need him. His signature shoops make me laugh for some reason.

I feel flattered and very angry at the same time.

And angus, I have some news...

Isn't it Mohandas?

I was just gonna say that. Yeah, Mohandas is the actual spelling of his name. Mohatma is the "Americanized" version meaning "Great soul"

Mohatma is a Sanskrit word...


anyway, the 'gh' looks more foreign; I assume it was used to distance people from these historical figures or something.

No idea, but I thought this was gonna be about the most one sided episode of Deadliest Warrior ever.

If you pronounce Gandhi the way people in India pronounce it, it sounds like there's an H after the G. Maybe that's why

oh, lords.

well, OP (genghisgandhi, see, I got it), it's better than having people fuck up the spelling and pronunciation of your real name. I have to go by a stupid ass nickname because people that've known me for years can't say my first name.

Because TS has run out of topics.
He already made a thread on the Penis Cucumber, so what do you expect?

Did the TS know that I actually have dyslexia and I try my hardest to use spell check to curb around it.

Yeah I failed to mention that part.
