    Scone!

    66% of the British population pronounce "scone" to rhyme with "John" (ie: the right way). You wouldn't argue with democracy, now would you?

    66% of the British population are also in the bottom two-thirds in terms of intelligence. Coincidence? I think not...

    it has a magic "e" at the end which means you have to pronounce the vowel in the word as its name.

    "The pronunciation of the word across the United Kingdom varies. According to one academic study, two-thirds of the British population pronounce it /ˈskon/, rhyming with "con" and "John", with the preference rising to 99% in the Scottish population. The rest pronounce it /ˈskone/, rhyming with "cone" and "Joan". British dictionaries usually show the "con" form as the preferred pronunciation, while recognizing that the "cone" form also exists."

    SKON FTW

    the other day i ate some victoria sponge cake on a spaceship travelling at 0.99c as measured by a stationary observer.

    the observer thought the cake was a little thinner than usual but i thought it was fine.
