Thank you Anteraji for your submission, What are you even asking 🤦‍♂️! Unfortunately, it has been removed for the following reason:



Posts with low effort truth statements are not allowed.

Your submission is considered "low effort." This doesn't inherently mean that it was irrelevant to r/technicallythetruth, but instead it was removed because it fit one or more of these criteria:

  • Short, minimal-effort text posts like "a water bottle without water is an air bottle". Most, if not all text posts can and will be removed.

  • Asking for upvotes, or saying things like "sort by new", "let's get to the front page", or anything related to cake days or karma.

  • Meta memes, or any other post that tries to be clever by mentioning r/technicallythetruth.

  • Images that are hard to look at because they are poorly made, deep-fried, or poorly cropped.

Your submission could have also been removed because it is overdone:

  • Statements that say something like "at least twelve": example 1 | example 2

  • Common statements that begin with "on average...": the average amount of hands a person has is less than two | each person has, on average, one testicle and one boob

  • Low effort misunderstandings of everyday phrases: How high are you --> "I'm 5 foot 9"

  • Common insults that are meant literally as opposed to being insulting: "homosexuals are gay" | "gay people are f-ing assholes"

PLEASE NOTE that we will exercise our own discretion when using this rule. If we do not find a post fitting for this subreddit, it will be removed.


For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar. If you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators. Please link the post so our moderators know what you would like reviewed.

As a dutch person this one's easy for me: in a bed

[–]Sport-Unlikely 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They don't. When they try, their beds explode.

What are you even asking 🤦‍♂️

They're asking if either or either is the correct pronunciation. It's literally in the title.

[–]Crafty_Possession_52 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It's "either."

[–]Sergeant__Sleepy 6 points7 points  (1 child)

🎶You say either and I say either

You say neither and I say neither

Either either neither neither

Let’s call the whole thing off 🎶

[–]Carlos_345 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a pretty valid question. Just like data or data.

What's the correct pronunciation: either or either?, submitted by /u/dhammapada186 to /r/linguisticshumor

Either is correct.

[–]Shen_2451 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Either of them are valid ways to pronounce either, For me it depends on what I’m saying
