Silly idea - how about "tiao?" Comes from mian-tiao, which means "noodle" in Mandarin, saluting what is probably the oldest known relative of spaghetti. "T" is pretty universal, as are the vowels...

I like your sig. I remember that from Sim City 2000. Sometimes I think about it as I'm driving over potholes or large bridges. There's a filk song I'd like to get ahold of sometime that sings the praises of the interstate highway system. Yeah, I am a geek. Oh yes. :)

After many minutes of serious thought on the subject of what pronoun should be used in reference to the FSM, I fell asleep.

Saint Gulik, the Blessed Messenger of Eris, appeared to me in a dream and revealed to me the answer to this tangled question.

The word is Yum. :fsm:

I've always rather fancied "s/h/it."

Works for all genders or none, one nice short word, easy to prounounce...

:twisted:

We would, of course, capitalize "S/h/it" when speaking of our noodly deity.
Think of the pastabilities...

Zie has been suggested as a gender neutral pronoun. I don't know if it's appropriate for Zir Noodleyness though.

I do like the Yum. It is the most appropriate for Yum, but it sounds odd.

Pronoun

AARRGGHH, me matey's: My vote is for "ID". The one true Intelligent Designer. Short, sweet, non-gender specific. And since when do Pirates care what it may mean in other languages? All for ID, ID for all!...FUBAR

ID is good, I admit. Particularly now when Kansas approved Intelligent Design :mrgreen:

Yeah, "ID" or "Id" could be pretty good. Note that "id" is also Freud's word to refer to the unconscious, and I'm pretty sure "id" literally translates to "it in Latin.

If the pronoun's gonna be int'l, then ch is impossible because many languages (e.g. Hawai'ian, Latin, Arapaho, etc.) have neither a ch, an sh, or a tsh (tsh makes the sames sound as ch).

If it weren't int'l though, then "the" would be the most logical choice. It would be pronounced with a th like in "with" and an e like in "he". It would be "the" because "the" is the Greek root that means god/deity. A sexless deity would be "thit", a male deity would be "the", and a female deity would be "theem".

He/him/his, she/her/her, and it/it/its would be the/thim/this, theem/ther/ther, and thit/thit/thits, respectively. "Thit" does not refer to an object, but to a sexless deity, like the Christian/Hebrew/Muslim God (in some portrayals), or the FSM.
