accentually speaking

i recently had an encounter with a south korean individual. he has probably been here only for a few years and a few words have distinctly different pronunciations from the normal. his "z" pronunciation was what fascinated me most. the z was more like a j. so "size" would come out as "sije" and "zoom" came out soundling like "joom". putting two and forty together, i'm hypothesizing that the one and only captain has a south korean gene swimming in his extraordinary gene pool. one gene down from around 25000. i wonder which one gives him the ability to shock electricity. i'll track them all down. if there is one life that is worth cloning, it has to be captain's.

staying on the linguistic vein, can an indian trying to imitate a southern accent construed to be speaking in a south indian accent?

When Jayam Ravi can still run with an axe etched on his back, I don't see why (my)beloved capten can't have the ability to shock electricity. :-)

jay i admire captain as much as the next tamilan.. and consider running with axes buried in backs a trivial task for the great one. i'm shocked u compared that to captain.

i've been investigating why the director made captain where that metal plate in dharmapuri to deflect bullets. surely he missed captain's earlier movies

you latest blog on using aby-baby's blog got me here.

quite a good number of my friends from golt land pronounce zip as jip, zero as jero...captain might have a link to golt-land instead.

now you can start digging a tunnel from golt-land to korea.
