Interesting Accent

I lost interest in the video pretty quickly, but the narrator's accent was fascinating.

EmFASSis on the wrong syLAABuls, a kinda sexy 'swishiness'...

Is it Russian/eastern Slavic?

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Wrong in flection on some words . It said 10 lives lost in a storm as where someone lives . They used to tell you to contact them if you heard a mistake in syntax .

Not sure on the accent, but the weight listed for the Mirage is way off, as in about 1/5th of what it should be.

Does seem like a Russian accent, with a bit of "stewardess" on top.

I’ve heard some Swedes speaking English that have that sort of cadence.

It’s entirely possible that’s exactly what it is. I’ve encountered many such videos on the interwebs, especially in recent years.



It is what it is.

I'd say it's a computer to text voice.

Those sentences are far too long without a breath, and the next sentence continues very quickly.

I can also hear little glitches in the speech.

The syllabic emphasis is unnatural, and the cadence too even.

LOVE the T-38 Talon and F-4 Phantom.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

That sounds like voice synthesis using a South African accent. The voice was recorded saying a lot of words/memes, and software stitches them together. Some times, more effectively than other times.

A lot of weird YT videos are created this way - they can be assembled using low-cost overseas labor without requiring a convincing recordable English speaker to appeal to wide audience.

Computer text to voice program. n
No brainer.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
