    Is Mystery British? edit - and video review

    I had the chance to watch one of his DVDs the other day. I noticed he pronounced the word "literally" as "LITCH-ruh-lee," the British way, instead of "LIT-er-uh-lee," the American way.

    He did it twice, so it wasn't a fluke. I've never heard an American say it that way before.

    Oh, to keep this thread on topic for Vag.

    It was interesting to see him. He was fairly charismatic, but he was also wearing eyeliner. But it fit him. He was surprisingly skinny. Skinnier than me.

    There was some other dude on the DVD named "Lovedrop" or something like that. He was talking about some good things, but... I had a hard time believing this guy would get laid all the time. Keep in mind I'm approaching this from a guy's POV and not a woman's.

    I really didn't know what to expect, seeing these PUAs in video.

    Mystery's charisma looked rehearsed, like an actor's (or a salesman's) in such a way that I was a bit put off. I guess this is twofold: a) he was giving a lecture that he probably rehearsed and b) a lot of PUA material is obviously rehearsed, or done over and over.

    I had a familiar feeling while I was watching part of it. During one of his "stories" that he was telling (as an example of how to convey your social proof indirectly through stories, in this case, casually mentioning that his ex was an exotic dancer), I was reminded of drunken frat boys telling stories of their conquests. After a few minutes I was like "man, if I was listening to this story in person, I would've gotten up and left a few minutes ago." It was boring. I cannot believe than an intelligent person would be interested enough to follow that story. That being said, it does not surprise me that a lot of people would stick around to hear that story. That is the piece of social/conversationalism that I am missing. Right at the moment when I think "geez/boring/douchebag/etc.," THAT seems to be the hook point that gets everyone else interested. I think I'm calibrated in reverse of everyone else.

    I do. I used to study linguistics, and dialects are interesting to me. So when someone says something out of place I notice it instantly.

    Well I mean...I can tell after hearing someone talk for 10 seconds if they have an accent man...It's not that hard to tell. Now if this is LITERALLY the only word he said that caught your ear as sounding different then maybe he just likes to sound more educated (since British accents are known to make you sound smarter).

    I don't even know who this guy is you're talking about.

    That's what I was talking about. His English was all North American, but then he drops a British "literally" in the middle of it. Twice. It didn't fit in. But the funny thing was he didn't say it with a British accent, he just said it with British stress and phonetics.

    you should quote that to Falconer...not me. I don't care who this guy is. He could've wikipedia'd him 10 minutes ago and gotten his answer.

    Edit: Already looked it up. He was born and raised in Toronto. TA DA!

    There we go. I'm calibrated wrong.

    So a normal person would be impressed by that, or maybe intrigued. "Oooh, he said that word differently/cool. I want to fuck him!!!!!"

    But I would think "wtf is this poseur doing using inconsistent speech rules." That's a DLV to me, but apparently it's a DHV to everone else.









    Unless Canadian people say it that way. I have to check with my Canadian friends. brb.

    Although Americans like to think we speak odd - 'aboot' etc. We don't. Well us in Ontario don't (Mystery is from Toronto). I'm in the USA all the time for work and no one ever knows I am Canadian unless I tell them because I sound just like them. :dunno:

    Canadian people from some regions have a certain accent. It's not terribly noticable, but on certain words with Os in them, you can hear it.

    Oh, and the "eh?" at the end of sentences... but I like that, and I use it :)

    Stupid sluts that a lot of this stuff works on see it at DHV. I see it as DLV too and if any one of my friends said it, I'd smack 'em in the mouth.

    That can be said about you guys to. I just got off the phone with a guy from Ellijay Georgia and had to keep asking him to repeat himself (while giving me his address for shipping purposes) because I couldn't understand a fucking word he was saying.

    The 'eh' thing is again another myth. Sure there are people that say it but there are Americans that say it to. I don't say it, my friends don't say it etc. I love American stereotypes of us though, it is usually funny as hell.
