you ever meet someone who has a strong opinion about this, as well as some shitty justification? i think those people are dumb and should shut up. is it 'nerdy' in some hip way to loudly care about something so trivial? i bet probably

i've literally heard everything, every reason it should with a soft rather than a hard g or the other way around. all these reasons were shit.

i get really tired of people being smug about language
but this whole gif thing perplexes me
who even cares

the sound of the letter J and G are two different sounds. Gust, Jello, Game, Janet, Good, Jungle, Jiffy, Giffy. It is pronounced, Gif.

I pronounce it with a hard "g" because fuck the rules but it's not like it's a "word" I say ever in "real" life 'cuz jesus I am not an insufferable butthead.
#9
the guy that invented it pronounces it jif so that's correct but stupid
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

if it's not gif as in jif then why are gyms jims?

Because Jim is fat and when we go over to Jim's we just eat pizza and watch football (the kind without the pentagons)

The guy who invented it says jif so that's the right way IMO.

my friend corrected me once, but I said it right. He said "I've learned something new today, it's actually called 'jif' not 'gif'" and we don't talk much anymore.

war..

war never changes

edit: apparently I was simultaneously right and wrong at the same time. I don't think I care enough to stop saying it.

it's similar to pronunciation of "ryu"

The guy who invented it pronounces it 'jif' as a pun on some food or some shit, but everyone with any sense knows that 'gif' sounds better.

But ultimately 'who gives a shit' is the right answer.

I pronounce it 'gif'. If peple use 'jif', it may increase the amount I want to punch them in the face, but it won't actually cause punching.

I say gif cause that is how I first said it and I'm not changing just because some dude that happened to invent them told says it differently.

Welcome to humans

What else are we going to fill our meaningless existence with?
Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; man got to tell himself he understand.
