When cussin’ something, I like to be able to pronounce it correctly
One of our forum members likes to jokingly pronounce it neodidlium. That’s a pain right there…sorry!
It isn’t nee-oh-diddly-yum?
I don’t remember how he spelled it…it was Marion. You might be right. It pretty much pronounces the same way, though.
I use it too…most of the time. Because for some reason I cannot remember neodymium…probably a pinhole in the brain from a random micro-meteor strike.
I just go with “Samarium Cobalt”. It’s old school.
Heh heh. Been there, done that.
I use it just because it’s funner and funnier.
