    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.
    I.e Scone = Sc-oh-ne

    "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.
