Axel vs. Axle
 
In the spirit of Unlimited's "You're versus Your" thread, I chose a topic that grinds my gears. Maybe I'm too sensitive or, they are all right and, I am fawkin' nuts... But dammit this kills me!

AXEL:
Axel Wiki

Quote:

Axel is a Scandinavian, German and Hebrew given name meaning "Father of peace".
AXLE:
Axle Wiki

Quote:

An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear. In some cases the axle may be fixed in position with a bearing or bushing sitting inside the hole in the wheel or gear to allow the wheel or gear to rotate around the axle. In other cases the wheel or gear may be fixed to the axle, with bearings or bushings provided at the mounting points where the axle is supported. Sometimes, especially on bicycles, the latter type is referred to as a spindle.
The last time I looked there were no Scandinavians living under my Jeep and I'd like to keep it that way no matter how peaceful he is! :flipoff:

Some people just don't understand what the little red lines mean when they're posting. I hate misspelled words. It shows a lack of intelligence, or a lack of attention to detail. I'm with you, Cain.

I don’t think it really shows a lack of intellect… but lack of attention to detail and flat out laziness is a definite IMO.

An "axe" is like an "ax" with a little extra junk in your trunk! ;)

A rose by any other name.......

Axl Rose
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

W. Axl Rose[1][2] (born William Bruce Rose, Jr.;[3] February 6, 1962), frequently called Axl Rose, is an American musician, best known as the frontman of American hard rock band Guns N' Roses.

Rose grew up in Indiana in a troubled family environment. His love of music was fostered by singing in church, participating in school chorus and studying piano, but his numerous run-ins with the police and activities as a teenager led to his leaving home at a young age. After moving to Los Angeles in 1982, Rose fronted various local bands, eventually forming Guns N' Roses with former L.A. Guns bandmate Tracii Guns.

As lead singer for Guns N' Roses, Rose enjoyed tremendous success, recognition, record and concert ticket sales in the late 1980s and early 1990s before dropping out of the public eye for several years. In 2001, he resurfaced with a new line-up of Guns N' Roses, and has since played periodic concert tours.

The only original member still part of the band's line-up, Rose still places high in numerous polls as one of hard rock's all-time greatest frontmen, but is also infamous for his onstage antics and high-profile disputes with former bandmates and others in the entertainment business.
