comment Should the English word for noodles be ''lamen'' or ''ramen''?
Unrelated; however I was taught that Japan invented ramen first because of recurring famine. Is this correct?

@Sim yes, more like that. On the further note, we should probably stop commenting; system is giving me warning.

@sim :O Wait, do we? Last time I checked we didn't... let me check it again. Edit: We do not have R sound, however neither do we have exact L sound either. More like those two combined.

@Sim Sorry if I am wrong; I am basing off the L/R problem with Korean Language; we eat ramens too ;)

I honestly have no idea; although ramen sounds better than lamen.

Interestingly, there was once a letter that represented the "th" sound, such as the word the. It looked like this: "þ", and whenever a word required a "th" sound, they would use this letter.

Actually, the more proper phonetic translation requires a letter with the sounds L and R combined. So neither translations are incorrect; rather, it depends on how you look at it.

comment What is the origin of ZOMG?
Now, as a fellow gamer, I have no time to type in grammatically correct sentences while I am fighting, especially if I am in "All for All". So I give this explanation merit.
