    Default Hi, I'm Kuranes

    Some of you may already know me from INTPC, but for those who don't....
    I'm a guy from Chicago who's interested in the Arts, as well as a lot of other things. I've been partial to new scientific discoveries, for example. Personally, I see this site as more of a place to learn about the world and ourselves/others and get to know those new people, vs. it being a "refuge".

    Make of it what you will....

    Okay, so here's a question I've always wanted to ask:

    Is it pronounced ker-anz with a hard "a." Or, ker-anz with a hard "a." Or, kur-anis?

    I get corrected by CW and fc every time I pronounce it and I think it's about time that I get it right.

    I've always said "Cure-RAINS" in my head, but I'm probably wrong.

    That's funny, I've always thought "cure-ANE-eez".

    The mystery deepens.

    Which of your 3000+ avatars do you identify with the most, Kuranes, and why?

    Y'all are all wrong.

    It's just "K." Anything else is redundant.

    I'm not sure how Lovecraft intended for it to be pronounced. In my head it is pronounced like Cur-Rains. "Cur" like a mean dog vs. "cure".

    Which avatar did I identify with the most ? Well, I had the Danny Trejo avvy longer than any other, and so it sticks in my mind, but I wouldn't say that I feel as though I'm like him. I'm sort of a combo of all of them, I guess.
