Assassin's Creed Odyssey had a large selection of gear including some helmets with a large red panache.  Nothing says stealth like bright red, after all.

I live in my own world. I speak my own language like Klingon, Sindarin, etc.

I cannot/should not interact interact with other people.

I shop at Tar-zhay 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

You and I would get along great then :)  When I was a kid, my BFF at the time and I spent an entire summer learning and translating Tolkien's runes and Sindarin.  When I went to college, we sent each other letters using runes and Elvish. Of course, I've since forgotten the majority of it.  Stupid adulting.  *sigh *

You can run into real problems by insisting on pronouncing every syllable in a word. There was once this state trooper whose last name was Fuqua...

Why does this conversation remind me of Futurama's Zapp Brannigan and his Sham-Pag-In? I'm surprised he never mispronounced original as Ore-E-Gye-Nal.
