After being told time after time that you don't say gyro like it's short for gyroscope, most people around here tend to overpronounce it, transforming into something more closely resembling "yeer-oh." This sorta, vaguely, obscurely rhymes with hero.

We were on a vaguely-Greek topic, so I decided to make an awful pun.
mudshark: Nate's just being...Nate.
Zeke: It comes nateurally to him.

mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really -- it's just a bad idea.

Sa'ar Chasm on the forum: Sit back, relax, and revel in the insanity.

Adam Savage: I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Crow T. Robot: Oh, stop pretending there's a plot. Don't cheapen yourself further.
