Pronunciation of xkcd

I know that in the About section of the website it is said that xkcd is supposed to be a word with 'no phonetic pronunciation', but I was wondering if anyone had the idea that it could be 'exceed'?
If this is in the wrong section, I'm sorry. I just had no idea where else would be appropriate.

No, you're probably fine with thrillers, it's just that this is a really long book and it gets super boring for spans of 50-100 pages about twice throughout.

Re: The worst film you've seen

Hardly seems relevant to the thread. I seriously doubt the worst movie you've ever seen was just one that wasn't as good as the book. Because there are hundreds of movies like that, and the Bourne Identity isn't a bad movie at all. Also those are separate pieces of art, I don't see why a movie bein...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Not sure what definition of mainstream they don't fit. I hear them on the radio all the time, their last album went platinum and won a Grammy. I've never heard them on the radio. Hmm, I guess you're lucky. My definition of mainstream is on the radio (which apparently they do fit) and selling albums...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Do you mean underground bands or non-mainstream bands? My favourite band (Tool) isn't really underground, but they're not mainstream. I listened to Cage the Elephant before they were at Outsidelands and am currently loving an Irish band called Paradox.

Has anyone read the Bourne series?

I had to put down The Bourne Identity in May last year due to finals and forgot about it until October. When I picked it up again I just started tearing through it and I'm loving the whole series. Nobody else I've asked even knew that they were books before they were movies. Has anyone else read any...

Re: Twilight?

I don't care at all about fitting in... I'm really concerned with the messages these books are sending. The relationship sounds like it's really in the red zone for abuse- at the very least, it's extremely unhealthy. This is true. I've lost the link, but I read an article on how their relationship ...

Re: The worst film you've seen

The Bourne Identity. I like it as a movie, but you see: I read the book. The only thing that the book had in common with the movie was the fact that there was a character named Jason Bourne. Similarities end there. If I hadn't read the book then I probably would've thought of it as a great movie.
