Isn’t this a scary looking banner?

I mean, first of all “Homeland Security” is so 1984 it really isn’t funny, and the whole thing looks like something out of Starship Troopers[1] and I have no idea where it links to and don’t really care.

And, furthering the random nature of this post, I have a huge problem with the spelling of scary. Most times I get it right, but then think it looks wrong. You know, that it should be pronounced scar-y. So I try scarey and that is just wrong. Maybe I should just come up with my own way of spelling things, like that Shakespeare dude. He couldn’t even spell his own name correctly half the time.

    But wouldn't it have to be spelled with 2 'r''s to be pronounced scar-y?
    I can see where that Shakespeare comparison is coming from, though… :)

    Like Richard Scarry.

    *shrug* scar isn't spelt with two r.s and it is pronounced scar :)

    But there's no e at the end of scar. Which is why it's pronounced scar. And if you make it a past participle, what do you get? Scarred. 2 r's.
    I rest my case. :)
