    Blood clot

    I always end up saying "blod clut". It feels like I'm saying something really dirty and I don't know why XD

    I guess it works both ways cause I have to really think when saying "Eichhörnchen" :| I always think there's an n after the i, I don't wanna talk about squirrels when I do my research abroad in Germany :lol::lol:

    Oh god, who would make such a word? :lol: This is what I plan to do, saying Eichhörnchen will probably end up being a life-or-death situation knowing the laws of the universe

    Yep. Like you'll be trapped in a room full of terrorists and they're like 'PRONOUNCE EICHHÖRNCHEN OR EVERYBODY IN THIS BUILDING DIES'. It could happen! Don't get killed that way. That would be a stupid way to die. :lol:

    Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovo lcanoconiosis is supposed to be a really difficult word to say but I have never heard of it. Quaoar technically isnt a word but a species of algae. Have absolutely no idea how you would pronounce it.

    Free/three. Just because of the area I live in and everyone says free instead of three, though sometimes when I'm on the phone for example I have no problem saying three properly, but then I might want to say free but end up pronouncing it like I'm saying three like "Is that buy one, get one three?" :rofl:

    Sorry if that made f***ing 0 sense.
