True. When first had my period, I thought I was going 2 die & not see my family anymore. So I started crying.

Lol never thought about that before.
Lol yep, that lovely quote about the English language being cobbled together always comes to mind in these cases ;) Though I wonder if part of the pronunciation comes from the origin of the names? I'm Canadian so I have no clue, but here we have some randomly spelled/pronounced places that are named after people/aboriginal tribes etc. either way it's still pretty amusing :D
Tomb, Comb, Bomb
They both originate from Cherokee. Kansas decided to pronounce it the way it is spelled, and Arkansas kept the original pronunciation. And I must add: Arkansas was named first!
Thanks Kelley! That's really neat to learn :) I think we sort of forget that a lot of places have deep historical meaning behind their names (old and new). According to wikipedia there was an actual debate in 1881 between two senators over the pronunciation of the name, which led to an eventual legislation of the official name today. That is just so awesome :D
