X Æ A-12 WTF?

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52557291

I understand we are entering into a new world, non-traditional, non-binary etc but what? That poor kid!

#2 2 years ago

uh, what?

Is it April 1st again?

Did someone repost an article from the onion?

Truth is stranger than fiction, it came from a 'reliable' source, the BBC.

Poor child will end up being either made fun of her whole life, or end up going with some other nickname anyways.

To be fair, his mom is Grimes. Could be worse.

Elon Musk is too funny. He tweeted the first picture of the baby with face tattoos. And said “never too young for ink”
My grandmother thought it was pretty cute.

It’s a good critique of our society and how ridiculous things are becoming. Your identity revolves around the importance of your name, so Elon was like “lmfao gonna give it some impossible name” probably because official documentation won’t be able to handle it. And it will force the system to adapt.

Also him and Grimes are super weird. Like have you watched a Grimes music video? Wild shit.

Moon, blanket , Gravity, Pilot inspektor, and many more strange names given by celebrities.

Should have gone with “Musky Grimes”.

#13 2 years ago

Yes it’s quite a weird name. Musk is a master of marketing and getting in the papers. In other news, water is wet.

Why is the BBC not a Reliable news source?

I can see The Hard Times article now:
"Grimes and Elon Musk Name Baby After Unreleased Tool Song"

I have no problem with the BBC, just trying to fend any would be nay-sayers. BBC is not influenced (that I know of) by any particular American political party nor big American business etc. It's my primary goto source.

Happens when you smoke an ounce of Primo weed a day.....way too much!

No issue with this story but the BBC is paid by and mostly is the voice of the British government. Not a secret. If you like it good, if too bad.

Most BBC funding does come from British taxpayers, and that’s no secret. Not sure it follows that it’s the “voice of the British government.”

I always got a kick out of this...which tagged him forever as "the artist formerly known as..." I wonder what the tagline will be for X Æ A-12.

You sure?

Only in regards to death and taxes!

#29 2 years ago

The name may not be legal. It all depends on where the child was born. I am going to just refer to her as Karen.

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Child will just be called A-12 cos no one will remember what comes before!

FREE AMERICA NOW from this absolute lunatic cockwomble.

Good point, if the baby was born in California he's limited to the 26 basic characters, so Æ is right out (don't worry, you can still name your kid "Hitler" or "Shithead," just nothing the good folks at the DMV won't be able to figure out how to type). I'm not sure "X AE A-12" will make life much easier for him, but as someone else pointed out, the life of unimaginable privilege and likely billion dollar inheritance (if dad doesn't piss it all away first) may smooth the way for him.

What is the name of the goofy "AE" combined character?
And how do you type that?

There's only one way -- find someone else that typed it first and cut and paste.

LOL, pinside.com gave me fits trying to get it into the title !

#37 2 years ago

This article sheds some more light on the name, including how it's pronounced. Doesn't make it any less weird in my books though...

Prince John : You mean you changed it TO "Latrine"?
Latrine : Yeah. Used to be "Shithouse."
Prince John : It's a good change. That's a good change!
