What's your sign? by Zombiesmile What's your sign? by Zombiesmile
[note:] Apparently in America, the boys name Adrian is also used for girls. (I didn’t know that!) So sorry if it’s not as funny to Americans. :C 

Happy (super) belated birthday, Fyorl ! My bestest buddy. 
As always, based on a true story. :D

Have you ever had this thing happen? (I've only crushed a few expectations myself...!)

Lol it is? I thought  it might be short for Adriana/Adrianna... I mean I live in America and I didn't know that.

I just thought that because of the description. Sorry.  I also live in Australia so I wouldn't know.

That's cool! Just curious but how many times have you come across some spooky scary spider or something over there? Lots of people seem to think Australia is pretty dangerous. (.<. Actually it probably is... But I just wanna know from a local's perspective.)

Well, to be honest.. I don't find spiders scary since I've grown up around them!

But..In one day..I would say around..uh 2-3 times a day? That's if you're in QLD because in WA, I don't see that many spiders only daddy long legs and the often small jumping spider.

That's true, xD... But I'm not so sure that's a good thing given the amount of venomous spiders over there apparently, having a distinct fear over something is actually very helpful... Because it gives you an idea of what to touch and what not to touch.  

I see, thank you for the answer! ^.^

No problem. I still know what spiders are venomous and what are not. I just have no fear towards spiders that much.

lately America has been on a 'what's in a name?' kick and all names I guess apply to girls. Not so much with boys though...

Basically, a lot of people in the U.S. just like giving their kids as weird a name as possible. A friend of mine liked to tell everybody about a girl she knew named La-Ah.

Pronounced "Lah-DASH-Uh..." No, I disagree!

That's odd... I just herd someone I play online with tell me this same exact thing last week.  And they talked as if they knew this girl.  Can't be the same person... or is this just a common story going around?

Maybe it is just a common story going around and I accidentally removed a level of association i.e. maybe it wasn't actually her friend, not her, or maybe it was from a blog or even just a popular rumor. I heard it from her like 7 or 8 years ago, so I'm actually a bit hazy on the details. Or maybe I do remember the details exactly right and it's just a coincidence. Six degrees of separation and all that.  I should probably avoid repeating things that when I can't 100% remember the source, though.

At any rate, we don't need poorly substantiated anecdotes to know that Kim Kardashian literally gave her firstborn a pun as a name. On purpose.

like north west?
they were probably like "hahahha.....get it north and west .....hahahahaha....we are sooo smart and punny"
that name is going to sound sooo dumb in ten years, I feel sorry for the kid.

Something funny enough

And I'm not joking when I say this:
This isn't a name that happened in America or the US or anything,
but once a person wanted to name their kid

"Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116."
Pronounced "Albin" I think. :stare:

I thought it was because in Germany, Adrian is usually a guy's name, so the guy in the comic thought a guy likes him

Yea. Adrian can be a guy's + girl's name. Its one of those things like... um... Kendall! And Alexis! Yes, Alexis can be a guy's name, I was surprises too (though now that I think about it, it sounds cool for a guy) and maybe Sasha...
