Looks like it’s the phone doing the translating and the ear buds are just an interface. Anyway, interesting.

I’ve got a language question for y’all.
I’ve noticed that more and more people, including news anchors are mangling their “S’s”. I hear them saying things like “Schtrong” instead of “Strong”.
When did this start happening?

Make it stop!

Scott has been complaining about that for years, Geezer. It only happens with ‘str’, I think.

It’s the Sean Connery effect.

It only happens with ‘str’, I think.

It’s a trap! All this dumbing down of the language and clothing and Tats

… people are dressing like clowns (small c).
