OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Why Fremont Sucks
For starters, and this has bothered me my whole life, it's pronounced Free-mont, with two e's, and yet it's spelled with only one. That's so stupid.
I call it "Freakmont".
Fremont is a French name. Doesn't really translate into English any other way.
Fleas-mont sounds good or how about Flee-mont? According to my college U.S. history instructor, Fremont was military hero but a jerk.
Good knowledge Ey. Fremont is indeed an adaptation from the French, "Fromage."
Alright, but we were talking about why Fremont sucks.
yeah, all i know of fremont is fry's too and that jack in the crack accross the way. frankly, the staidum would have been better near the hills by 580...from a scenic perspective...i really don't care though.
I don't know where the Free came from but MONT in french means small mountain.
Fremont is named for John C Fremont. He was a military officer and an extremely accomplished explorer during the mid 19th century. Interestingly, he is also tied to another place in the Bay named after a famous Californian from that era, Jose Berryesa, whose murder he ordered at the time. He led many successful military expeditions during the Mexican-American war and became one of California's first senators. He was then a successful general for the Union during the Civil War, but lost his post due to disagreement with Lincoln.
Oh, so to Chris' orginal post. Pronouncing it like Free-mont is an americanization of the correct pronunciation. It should be pronounced like the original word Fre'-mon, with a French accent.
The Wal-Mart A's?
Fremont is a city named after someone who actually accomplished something in his life.
It's true, I can't lie. If there were a town named Horvath I gotta assume nothing would ever get done. Everyone would sleep in till' noon and no one would ever fix the roads. You'd have your garbage collected once a month, if you were lucky.
Feelyourself, quit exposing your shortcomings by prolifically making up statements about people you know nothing about. It's tiresome and juvenille. The fact that you have felt the need to vent so often and so vitrolically to his having corrected your grammar exposes your feelings of inadequacy. You came on here posting comments with the intent to piss off as many people as possible and you've succeeded. Congratulations. It's not hard to piss people off, especially anonymously. Making people feel good is much more of a challenge. So, don't go around patting yourself on the back for being able to upset people. You weren't invited to come here and post your jerk comments, so you deserve everything you've gotten back and much more. I wish you would just go away. Unfortunately, I'm sure you will not. Fortunately, I can ignore you after one final salvo. You're a coward and an asshole.
Feel good is humor why can't anyone see that. He is like Borat or any other made up person. He is funny, he is making fun of the person he pretending to be. Showing himself as the kind of shallow ass hole who does not mind the move.
yea but how many Starbucks...that is how you really measure a cities success...Livermore has 11!
holy cow! Did I miss something?
