I always thought it was Naturally and that's what makes boost so much fun 'cuz it's so unnatural and dirty.

I wouldn't mind seeing a green donkey, but I'd rather ride a green bike.

'NA' = Naturally Aspirated

Now the bigger question is whats the proper way to pronounce 'Aspirated'? I hear it pronounced two different ways.

I've always said "normally aspirated" as upposed to non-normally aspirated methods like turbos. It seems kinda weird to think of a turbo as "un-naturally aspirated".

I hear it prounced on tech shows as:

1) Ass-per-ated
2) Uh-spear-rited

Now I learned to pronounce it via option #2 but 2/3 of the time I hear it pronounced as option #1. I've always wondered about this but never spent any time looking into it.

Whoever pronounces it like number 2 must be a Brit or an Aussie. That's the only possible excuse.

Now I gotta go feed my bootmonkey.

Hmm...I'm from MD/DC public schools.
Although I do spell humor as humour and have to think to catch myself.

Being an Aussie would be cool, but I'd prefer New Zealand.

He's a Maori.
If you liked him in Star Wars then you should see "Once Were Warriors".
An excellent indie film that didn't get wide release here.

Yah, excuse my ignorance, but aren't Maori's from NZ?

edit: found a definition:

Native of New Zealand, or belonging to New Zealand. First use of the word in English was noted in 1850. Often used in Maori to distinguish from the supernatural, as in tangata Maori or man, human being, as opposed to the supernatural or whetu maori as in the lesser stars. A variety of kumara. About 9 per cent of the New Zealand population is Maori
